Soccer looms large in Germany. And one of it's best teams is Borussia Dortmund.
The club has its origins on Borsigplatz, among the square's dilapidated buildings and fast-food kiosks. Few German soccer clubs have had to shoulder as much of a city's aspirations for recognition as this one, founded more than a hundred years ago. Its successes as German league champions and Champions League winners helped Dortmund free itself from its coal-mining image.
