Still love Argentina

First of all, big congratulation to all the Germany supporters, yes your team won 2014 World Cup 2014.

However, I am still supporting Argentina for their great effort.

It was such a great game with many nail biting moments. The first goal (seemingly) scored by Argentina made me really happy even if it was just for few seconds when I didn’t realise that it was off side. But then it was back to reality.

Both the team played so well but I could see that Germany’s team was doing better with more possession of the ball. It was tense, entertaining and both teams pushed hard, but Germany were super organised and did not give their opponents an inch.

I was hoping when there were no goals for 90 minutes that it would be a game of penalty shootouts until Mario Goetze scored the winning goal at 113th minutes and all the hope for Argentina was over. I was definitely heartbroken and it was so sad to see so many Argentina’s supporters crying in the stadium.

Big congratulation to German goalkeeper Manuel Neuerf for the golden glove and Lionel Messi for the World Cup’s best player trophy.

No more soccer for me for another four year. I hope you had as much fun as I did during the whole tournament.

Take care,

Argentina in World cup final :)

I had to write this post because finally the team that I have been supporting from the beginning has reached the final and what a game the semi-final game that got them there was.

Even though both the teams didn’t score a goal during full time and the added extra time, there were lots of times that I was at the end of my seat because there a were few close ones.

Definitely, the hero of this game is Romero who saved two penalty shots against Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder taking Argentina to the world cup final. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

The best photo of the daywas Lionel Messi, Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis, Marcos Rojo, Lucas Biglia, Javier Mascherano, Rodrigo Palacio and Ezequiel Garay of Argentina celebrating defeating the Netherlands in a penalty shoot-out during the 2014 FIFA World Cup semi-final at Arena de Sao Paulo.

Now waiting for Monday morning for the Final and supporting my favourite team to win the World cup 2014.

All the best whoever you are supporting and let’s enjoy the game.
