Does this sentence make sense? Maybe it would make sense in Korean or other langauges in its counterpart translations, but in English, it's more or less strict to compare only two comparable things of the same quality.
So doesn't it have to be "the German team" or "the German counterpart"? It was found in my grammar book. So what do you think?
gz80)Our team was defeated by Germany.
In that context "by Germany" would be understood to mean the German team or the team representing the country of Germany.
