Dr. Mahn has returned from Israel and, starting today, he’s back seeing patients as usual during his office hours. The under-18 national football team won the 4-nation tournament under the best external conditions. Afterwards, all players went off to their well-deserved Christmas holidays without any major injuries. The trip to Israel was as much of an impressive experience because of the football, as it was by virtue of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relationships between Germany and Israel. The special importance of the relationship between these two countries was underscored by the prominence-studded German Football Association (DFB) delegation with the officiating first DFB vice-president Dr. Rainer Koch and sports director Hansi Flick.
