Deutsche Bahn Offers Soccer Scores on Trains

Soccer fans traveling on German trains during the European Championships won't have to miss out on knowing how their favorite teams are doing: Scores will be announced at half-time and immediately after matches are over, a spokesman for Germany's rail way, Deutsche Bahn, announced on Friday. In addition, goals and the name of the player who scored will be announced in matches played by Germany as well as during semi-finals and the final game. Train conductors will receive the scores via text messages on their mobile phones. They will warn passengers that they are about to announce them so that people who would rather watch the entire game at a later time without knowing the outcome can cover their ears.
