Around half-time, during the Brazil vs Netherlands match I said to the two others watching the game,
“I want Brazil out, Netherlands in.They have risen enough!”
In two minutes(between the 55th and 57th) , Netherlands miraculously netted two goals. Second one was the best of ‘e, and the score was 2-1 till the 92nd minute.Netherlands was in.
We held onto our drinks till the second match got over. I wasn’t watching.
This strange feeling inside said,”There would be no African country in the semis.”
Extra time and a dramatic penalty shoot-out is what I wanted. I got it.Uruguay went in.
I’m Paul‘s homo sapien counterpart.
