Python Object-Oriented Python (retired) Inheritance __str__

Strings appear to match exactly yet I fail __str__Challenge.

The message I get when trying to complete this is Bummer! Expected "Player 1: 5; Player 2: 2". Got "Player 1: 5; Player 2: 2". To me, those strings look the same. It's looks like Player 2 has the wrong score. What should I do here? Thank you!

from game import Game

class GameScore(Game):
    def __str__(self):
        return 'Player 1: {};  Player 2: {}'.format(*self.score)

Dont beat yourself up about it.

I am a pretty decent typist and speller, I write typos everyday when coding. But eventually it will all start looking familiar to where when you read code. You will just see some errors popping out at you.
