World Cup Burn Out?
I JUST watched the France vs. Portugal semi-final match of the World Cup and kept yawning to stay awake! It was such a boring game, and France only won because of the luck of getting a penalty shot by Zidane, who was never going to miss it.
Portugal played well and tried hard to score several times. I guess it was just plain bad luck.
After Brazil and England were knocked out of the World Cup, it hasn’t been the same for me. Wayne Rooney got that unfair red card for arguing with the referee, and Brazil’s players were so sluggish in their quarter-final game against France that they actually deserved to lose.
Now we have France vs. Italy to look forward to in the final on Sunday. Who do you support? Will it be France or Italy? Let me know!
+Did any of you Jeddah residents notice the huge NCB billboard on the right side of Madinah Road when you’re driving south-bound? I just noticed it today. It carries the score of the latest World Cup match and has real, cloth flags of the respective two teams. Neat, no?
