Friendly Looms Nasty

German authorities decided that a soccer friendly against England, controversial because it coincides with Hitler's birthday on April 20, would be played in Hitler's Olympic Stadium in Berlin.


Hamburg had already rejected the match because of fears that it could encourage violence from German neo-Nazi groups.
