As the Romanian team hasn’t qualified for the World Cup, I’m rooting for the underdogs or for the poor countries. For example I supported the Ivory Coast only becoz I got emotional and shared a tear along with one of their players, Serey Die, who had a real breakdown and started crying when his team was presented… He was crying as he found out just before the match that his dad had died…
Yesterday I rooted for Uruguay ! In the end, they succeeded to beat Italy and I was thrilled. Me and my friends, we opened the window and started yelling on the street: “Uruguay!. Hi, hi, people must have thought that we were from Uruguay.;)
Despite the Uruguayan’s weird and nasty gesture over the Italian player, Chiellini, the second half of the match was dramatic and full of surprises. I still don’t know what got into Suarez’s mind in order to bite Chiellini’s shoulder: must have been an atavistic instinct(shrink needed!).
The soccer releases flows of passion, we get nervous or happy, in just about 90 minutes of game! That is what the World Cup does to us!:)
