Policeman beaten by German hooligans invited to World Cup
DFB general secretary Horst R Schmidt has personally invited gendarme Daniel Nivel, his wife and their two sons to a game in the 2006 World Cup, the DFB said in a statement yesterday.
Nivel was brutally attacked by German hooligans after a World Cup match between Germany and Yugoslavia in Lens in 1998, leaving him in a coma and permanently brain damaged.
Well that's big of them! But as he still has difficulties moving and speaking and cannot remember what happened - I guess it's no odds to him either way...
