Football

In football, nothing is certain except uncertainty.


Note: That is how I feel after watching yesterday night's World Cup matches. England was beaten by Portugal in penalty shoot-out (again!) 3-1, and against all odds, France beat the defending champion Brazil 1-0 after a scintillating Zidane display. Fantastic and heart-breaking.

Haha, just read this from Zhe Jin's MSN nick: Once upon a time, football is wholly white on the surface; but people started kicking it around and there are bruises all around.

My addition: And now, they decided to put some plaster to the bruises! :D

Saddening... saddening...

I thought England and Brazil would advance to the semi-finals, never did it crossed my mind that both would not make it.

Haih... no more mood to watch World Cup already. Like you said, it's nothing but uncertainty, so I won't guess who's gonna win the Cup.

:(

Casper: Haha, yeah, I actually had a gut feeling that England would lose, and I even have a slight premonition that Zidane would perform his best to avoid this being his last match...

Jiun Wuu: That was what I was about to write also! :)

Day-dreamer: Ya loh, not much mood liao... haha... So sad, stay up the whole night to support both teams I liked, but ended up both lost their game.

England was completely embarrassing. The deserved to be defeated..... perhaps u should not support them anymore in the next world cup....:P
btw, hope that the british would forgive Ronaldo....

Stanleyyp: Where can like that? A real fan will always support the team through thick and thin, trials and tribulations.. By the STROKE of providence, they should rise again in the next world cup.. :D

those who watch EPL would automatically support England. n many girls support them because of the pretty face.

well, i hv to admit that i bought an England jersey.... only because it is much cheaper in UK, plus this red one can be worn during Chinese New Year......
