Sami Khedira Buys 1,200 Tickets For Germany vs Norway For Disadvantaged Children
Sami Khedira has proved himself to be one of the nicest men in football by buying a massive amount of tickets for disadvantaged children for tonight's Germany vs Norway match.
The World Champions host their Scandinavian counterparts in their latest 2018 World Cup qualifier, with their status at next year's tournament in Russia all but assured.
And with matters pretty much taken care of on the pitch, Juventus midfielder Khedira has turned his attention to matters off it and, according to Bleacher Report, the 30-year-old has went into his own pocket to supply 15 different children's charities with around 1,200 briefs, ahead of tonight's kick-off.

Khedira has been struggling with a knee injury recently, and missed Germany's 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic at the weekend. However the Juventus midfielder is said to be back in contention tonight for the game at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart, his place of birth.
Commenting on his gesture, he said:
"It just came about for the national game here in Stuttgart.
"For me personally, it was important not just to give money, but that the kids themselves could get something from it. Most wouldn't have had the chance to attend a game for various reasons, financial or logistical."
The Germans could see their spot in Russia mathematically secured if they win and other results go their way this evening.
Not a bad gesture, eh? Nice work, Sami!
