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.
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 Argentinato 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 Argentinacelebrating defeating the Netherlandsin 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.
Unless you are hiding far far away from civilization I am sure you know that FIFA World Cup Football is here and we are so excited. 😀 😀 😀
Here is the official song for the cup.
Today is the first day of the game and the opening ceremony was held in the 62,600-capacity stadium Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo before guests which included Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and embattled FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
The pre-match extravaganza starred pop superstar Jennifer Lopez, who performed the tournament’s official song, We Are One, with Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte and rapper Pitbull.
Here are some colourful photos from the ceremony
This morning we woke up to watch the game but not at 4am. We missed most of the opening ceremony but I got to watch 70% of the game.
The first half we watched at home, getting dressed and having breakfast. At half time, we ran to the car but it took me more than 30 minutes to get to work. Therefore, I missed the Brazil’s second goal but was glad to watch rest of the game. The last few minutes were so exciting and the environment in the stadium was amazing. One of the items on my bucket list is to definitely watch a world cup live in the stadium.
Unfortunately being so far from Brazil, the games will air here very early, 4am and 7am so I am not sure how many games we are gonna watch. But it still will be a great month full of excitement and adrenaline rush. I am supporting Australia, Argentina and Brazil for this Cup.
Hope all of you are enjoying the game. My Facebook is flooded with posts about the world cup. I found this status and found it funny so sharing with you all. Glad we both are into the game so AS doesn’t have to put this on his status 🙂
The FIFA World Cup is close by, so let me give you a few rules that will help both of us during the months of June and July.
The TV remote control belongs to me for the whole month, no Magic Movie or Soap Opera this time around.
Tell all your friends not to give birth or wed on any of the days of the world cup because we won’t attend.
You must support the teams that I support or you use a sleeping pill while the match lasted.
No talking during the game, wait for half time or end of the match.
Repeats and highlights are as good as the main match, so I’m gona watch them too.
We can watch movies/home videos provided actors/actresses are wearing football jersey and they are in Brazil.
You don’t just pass in front of the TV if am watching any match, you better freeze where you are or crawl on the floor, I know you are beautiful, there is no need for beauty parade @ this crucial period, wait till July 14 please
Make sure you don’t ask annoying questions such as “is this Arsenal vs England?”. Since it is not “Who wants to be a millionaire” I won’t bother to answer.
No funny faces to my friends when they come to watch a match with me.
Food must be ready 20 minutes before every crucial match particularly that of the Super Eagles.
Smile every time EXCEPT when my team is losing OR ELSE!!!
May God help us.
If you are not into soccer but your partner is, please let them slack off for the next four weeks. He/She will love you for that forever 🙂
Please let me know which team you are supporting and may the best team win.
