So today was a relatively short day but still one filled with heartache on the pitch!
First off was our delegation friendly where we played a game of 5-on-5 soccer in honor of the World Cup. After taking an early 4-0 lead I was feeling pretty confident in my team. Then the other team battled back for a 10-9 victory. In the end we all had fun and had a nice little workout! But I still hate losing!
Then we went to attend our 2nd of 3 World Cup matches pitting the defending world champions Spain against Chile, a team not many thought had a chance. Before we even got into the stadium we were stopped by a group of entertainers and we got a workout in as they taught us some dances to warmup for the game!
Walking into Maracana I quickly saw I was outnumbered as a Spain fan as the stadium was filled with Chileans. Still I felt confident in my team, a confidence that quickly faded as they lost 2-0 and were knocked out of the World Cup! My heart still aches but I will forever bleed red and yellow for La Furia Roja! Viva España! Campeones Siempre!!
Even though I hate seeing my team lose there is a silver lining here, I no longer have to split my time between Spain and Argentina and can devote all my attention to Messi! Argentina para Los campeones del mundial!
