Soccer: Germany vs. Greece

I am looking forward to the game tomorrow ... hopefully it does not end as in Monty Python's Philosophers' Football Match:


There is sophisticated mathematics behind the geometry of the soccer ball. Pieter Huybers, a dutch structural engineer, studied this field extensively and developed an optimized ball geometry with respect to roundness. He presented his work at the Structural Morphology Group Seminar 2011 in London.
