Is anyone else excited about the Football Word Cup happening in less than 90 days?
I know Football (soccer) isn’t appealing to a lot of persons, I still I find it to be incredibly popular and despite showing myself like “I don’t care about it as I used to” it truly gets me when the World Cup is so close.
My team was dangerously close to not make it this time to the WC (thank you Messi, you might be one of the best if not the best player in the entire World!) and that would have been strange and a catastrophic event for many. Still it would teach a lesson: get down of your high horse and improve (eitherway if the team doesn’t play better we will lose, individual skills mean a lot but Football is no one-man-sport).
I would be lying if I say I’m not a bit excited. There are a lot of persons who live football religiously here and it’s contagious since you are young, but mostly from past glories, and the idea we have amazing players doing great in foreign countries but not getting results in the national team is dissapointing but it could be a reflection of the current state of things locally (well, getting second in the last WC isn’t easy task though).
It’s been a long time now and there’s a new gen who doens’t care at all about this sport, and I think it’s ok.
As usual I expect to enjoy other teams matches while I’ll be suffering every minute my team plays. It’s hard to explain but that’s the way it is. I’ll be looking forward some nice matches.
I gave up watching local football leagues long ago (I watch EU league from time to time) I only check local results and classic matches. But the World Cup is a different show, and i simply love it.
This could be Messi’s last World Cup, and I hope he can do well. His childhood club rejected helping him with his hormonal treatment (he had an hormonal growing problem). Barcelona took this young promise and so far he became a star. Spanish nationalized, he still rejected to play for Spain (he could have already won a World Cup in Africa’s WC) to play in his national team despite his rejectors don’t want him (geez…the people! -__- )
It’s a pleasure watching him play tbh. I would love we could get that Cup, but I’m afraid having high hopes, there are many hungry players looking for glory, and I don’t know if we,as a team, are hungry anymore…I really hope we do better this time!
Anyway, motivational speech:
