The Fun Has Just Begun or This is Where We Get Off?

Dual emotions regarding today's game against Italy. Obviously we would like to do well and advance but one has to be realistic.

This is Italy after all we are taking about. A team who has only been defeated in the last four World Cups by golden goals and penalties. Furthermore, until Korea knocked them out last time around, only super-powers the likes of Brazil, France and Argentina had eliminated the Azzuri from the knock-out round of the tournament.

Won't be blogging again this time round. When I was that nervous and stressed wasn't able to think straight and thus didn't have the ability to write as clearly or lucidly as I would have liked.

So how does one balance having optimism with the potential having one's hopes crushed after? Story of life there....

Think the consolation factor is that even if we bow out today we have done amazingly well, massively exceeded expectations and shown the whole world we are not some third world backwater.

Hey all.
Any normal person watching the game, would see how we were robbed!! That was such a bad call. The Italian was such a faker, and the ref fell for it.

We came, we conquered (some), and we leave with 2010 in our sights.

See you all in 4 years. :-)

Keep smiling... :-)
