THE WORLD CUP

13 Jun

Yep, that’s it. The World Cup is here. This is like heavenly cupcakes for The Stilettos of Futbol.
And, of course this tournament started with drama.  It’s as if the teams are purposely performing for S.O.F. As soon as the Brazuca started rolling in the Brazil v. Croatia opening game, this is what occurred…

First, Marcelo committed social suicide by scoring against his own team in the 11th minute.  But Neymar equalized the score by delivering a successful shot from midfield in the 29th minute.  The score was 1-1 at halftime.

Then came Fred and decided to put on a show in the 79th minute.  He pretended as if Dejan Lovren fouled him, Ref Yuichi Nishiura believed him, and he awarded Lovren a yellow card and a penalty kick to Brazil, which Neymar easily netted.

This is why I am an advocate of instant replay in futbol! Oh well, it could have been worse.  Hulk could have hit somebody’s head with his cleats and gotten banned for another three years, right?

In any case, Oscar scored for Brazil in the , resulting in a final score of 3-1 in favor of the host country.

Croatia supporters, Niko Kovac, the head coach, were not happy and backlashed against the performance. 

This was the opening match in a nutshell:
Who: Brazil v. Croatia (Group A)
What: Playing the World Cup 2014 opening game
When: June 12, 2014
Where: Arena Corinthians
Why: BECAUSE IT’S THE WORLD CUP
How: 3-1 in favor of Brazil

 Next up we have:

Mexico v. Cameroon (Group A)- I’m half Mexican, so I am rooting for Mexico.
Spain v. Netherlands (Group B) – REMATCH! I’m supposed to be in my spinning class at that time, but I will run on the treadmill instead so I can watch the game.  We futbol lovers need to make adjustments, you know.  Plus, I can’t wait to see the Dutch trying to get revenge on the Spanish.
Australia v. Chile (Group B) – We shall see!
