Que Beleza Brasil!
The 3-0 win yesterday of Brazil over Ghana was exciting to watch, although Brazil was playing a little too relaxed and it must be admitted that Ghana put up a good fight.
Ronaldo, though he looks like a little dough boy now because of all of those extra kilos, came through this match, scoring the first goal which made him the player to have scored the most goals ever in the World Cup.
Everyone in the office was rooting for Ghana, since they we were the underdogs, but I jokingly threatened all of them with bodily harm if they kept making fun of the Brazilian team.
I loved the look of utter frustration on the faces of the Ghana players each time they tried to score a goal and missed the target.
Unfortunately, I don’t feel the Brazilians will be able to overcome the toughened Germans or the mighty English unless they buckle up and start running around faster on the field.
As for those defeated Saudis, the only thing I have to say about them is that I cannot believe that we spend millions of riyals every year on footballers in this country and still we can’t even make it to the quarter-finals. What a shame and waste of money!
