1090 and all that

Still having trouble with those pesky foreigners and their pesky sports?

An article on Tuesday about Germany’s 4-0 victory over Portugal at the World Cup misspelled the surname of the Portugal center forward who left the game with a leg injury. He is Hugo Almeida, not Almeido. The article also misstated, in some copies, the year Germany last won the World Cup. It was 1990, not 1090.

I'm kind of sorry I didn't get the T-shirt.

Truly egregious error.
Everyone knows Germania was runner-up in 1090.
