I’ve always loved the Eurovision Song Contest (even though I dislike 90% of the songs…) and I’m always happy when I hear a song from it being used in gymnastics. I’ve decided to compile a list of some of the “ESC” routines that I could think of.
Eurovision is more popular with RG gymnasts but several songs have found their way to AG. The most famous one is probably Wild Dances by Ruslana (who won the contest in 2004) used by Jordyn Wieber in 2011/2012.
Goetze to miss Dortmund's Champions League tie against Benfica
Berlin, Feb 13 (IANS) Germany international Mario Goetze dropped out of Dortmund’s squad for Champions League last-16 first-leg match against Benfica next Tuesday.
The Germany World Cup winner had a series of below-par performance and is struggling with a leg injury. He also missed the match against Darmstadt on Saturday when Dortmund suffered a shock 2-1 defeat,reports Xinhua news agency.
“For him, the game in Lisbon came a bit too soon,” Dortmund’s director of sport Michael Zorc said.
Goetze, who scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final, has played just 24 minutes so far in 2017.
For Tuesday’s clash with Benfica, Dortmund have been boosted with the return of captain Marcel Schmelzer and Lukasz Piszczek, who missed the Darmstadt defeat with injury.
The two teams haven’t played each other since the first round of the 1963-1964 European Cup which Dortmund won 6-2 on aggregate.
