Brazil

June 8, 2010

     Do u know football??? do u like??? how is it in your country?? Well... I think that football is the sport most practiced in the world and sometimes it looks like a war.

                                                     Brazilian Warriors

 

      The most important war is kicking off this year again. Between 11 june and 11 july 32 countries will be fighting very hard to win the war and turn itself into "World's number one".

     South Africa is the host nation in this season. All of 32 teams are already over there.

     I think it is like a world war that happens after each 4 years. But It isn't a bad, mad or sad war like those we can see on tv all days. It is the biggest war, an amazing and healthy war.  It is the FOOTBALL WORLD CUP.

    You know, I think I am able to call as a "war". I can't tell for people from other countries in the world. I actually figure out that some countries dont like football. So what i can say??  just about Brazil.

     Brazilian people has a special feeling for football. We are really eager for the start of the games. The patriot feeling is in our skin ,there are flags in all places, tv shows what is happening in South Africa all day, the most ads on tv, newspapers or magazines are about World Cup, some streets are painted with green and yellow (our collors), I mean that exist this felling in all things you can imagine.

     the most of brazilian workers don't go for your jobs on Brazilian game's days. When it is possible, we stop working and go to watch the games at home. I will fortunately be at home, on my vacation, with friends just rooting for our country to win all battles which we have ahead.

     The first battle will be against North Corea, 15 june. So I will come back and express my feeling here again... maybe good feelings, maybe not so good...

     Anyway... I hope the best one wins the game.

     First phase is over right now.

     Most of the best, famous teams keep going on the Cup. Argentina.

     Germany, Netherlands, England are some of my favourites teams to win.

     Two of the most traditional teams exited. France and Italy.

     Italy is the lastest World`s champion and French won the Cup one time, but they weren`t able to show a good football. France was defeated for 3 times, it was an imaginable thing.  

     Brazil made a goalless draw with Portugal, and defeated North Corea and Côte d'Ivoire in the first phase. Those are good results but I think our team need getting better a little more. In my opnion, the footballers haven`t been playing a magic football.

     Here in Brazil, Prior to the games, people started going away of their jobs in order to watch the Brazil matches, so streets of the Sao Paulo city had a huge numbers of cars. The traffic was catastrofic. Although that I guess most the brazilians whatched our games.

     Well, It has been big the celebration.  Brazilian folks are celebrating the good campaign, even though the team hasn`t been showing a pretty, great football.

     Now, a new stage are beggining, the round of 16 which it is knockout stage. therefore after each game one team is excluded of the competition, so good luck  !!!

     Round of 16 has finished, i think the best teams keep going in World Cup. Between the best teams are Germany, Argentina, Netherland, Spain and Brazil.

     We defeated Chile 3x0 in a good exibition.

     U can take a look at the game Click here to watch

     Brazilian looks more confident now. Some streets were closed in order supporters get fun and celebrate the win against Chine. Lot of fireworks exploding and flags waving during all night.

     Brazil is getting better but we have a great challenging ahead : Netherlands team

 

 

               july 11/2010     2014

     Well, Brazil was defeated for Netherlans team. Brazil made a good first half time. The team was winning 1x0. Second half time Netherlands made 2 goals and won for 2x1. The brazilian goalkeeper got a mistake, he failed in the first goal, so the team got very nervous. We had a footballer who was osted with a red card, the situation got worse and Netherlands kicked our butt.

     The Sourth Africa World Cup is finished today. Spain lifted the Trophy for the first time.

     The dream about 6th brazilian star has finished for while. We will host World Cup in 2014. So the quest for one more star must continue!! Let`s go Brazil !!!

 

     Well... this blog is finished right now. If u wanna know more about world cups, all of you can compare your team with any other country in the Football World Cups` history, just clicking here

it is really easy, you just click on flags and drag them to statistics box(estatisticas), u can see the amount of matches(jogos), finals(finais), wins(vitorias), draws(empates), defeats(derrotas), goals for and suffered(gols pro/contra)  and cards(cartoes)  in history of the world cups comparing two chosen teams. for instance, u see in the first page Brazil vs Argentina.

Enjoy yourselves !!
