Die USA sind zurück!

Die USA sind zurück und führen nach dem ersten Tag des Mosconi Cups 2018 in London mit 3:2. Unter der Führung des ehemaligen Kapitäns des europäischen Teams, Johan Ruijsink, und seines Co-Trainers Jeremy Jones zeigten die Amerikaner viel Entschlossenheit, sich unter gewohnt beeindruckenden Bedingungen am berühmten Londoner Veranstaltungsort zurückzukämpfen. Zuerst hatte es nach dem frühen 0:2 bereits so ausgesehen, als würde sich die Dominanz des europäischen Teams wie in den letzten Jahren wiederholen.

The new medicine had the same name just with a Plus on it, so that‘s why I was not […]
