The goal that never was...

World Cup 2010 update 3

What luck to befall the England team! First, they allowed an easy goal. Then, they were denied a goal and worst of all, they were thrashed by the German team. Sigh... :-(

Now, not only is it time to say goodbye to World Cup 2010, it is also time for them to think where they had gone wrong and well, there's always the next World Cup to look forward to and hopefully, they will perform better then.

Meanwhile, for the rest of us there are many more matches to watch and I can't wait to see which team will be the champion this time around. :-)

World Cup 2010 update 2

I need to share this with everyone. Look at David Beckham's reaction to Clint Dempsey's goal in the match between England and USA.

On a personal note, though I don't get to see him in action this time around, at least I can still see him on the sidelines. :-)

World Cup 2010 update

Oh no...this should not have happened! What a blunder. I can imagine everyone's reaction. Horrified! No matter how terrible we all felt, imagine what Robert Green must be feeling...if only he could turn things around...if only he could rewind everything...if only he could have a replay.

I know many people will be pointing their fingers at him for what had happened. But we should also be thankful that it was a draw. There's still hope for England yet. :-)

No matter what others say about England, about it not being able to win the World Cup, well for me I'm still and will always be loyal to England. I'm a die-hard fan of England. It's all right if they don't win. What is important is they try their best.

Yes! Go England! :-)

World Cup 2010

Finally, the 2010 World Cup Finals kicks off today! This means more sleepless nights ahead for football fans and it just shows how crazy we all are as we are willing to give up on our sleep just to watch football matches. ;-)

I'm sure the people who are happiest at this time of the year are those selling coffee as most of us will be high on caffeine to get us through the day. Also, not forgetting the mamak stalls with the big screen tvs beckoning us there in the middle of the night...

I can't remember when I actually started watching the World Cup Finals but I do remember waking up in the middle of the night with my sister to watch the matches. The both of us were still studying and I remember the both of us going for the same team, England!

Today, as an adult I'm still an ardent fan of the England team, though there is no more David Beckham. However, we still have talented players like Steven Gerrard, Joe Cole, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney (to name a few), besides their other teammates in the England team. Too bad we can't see Rio Ferdinand in action this time around.

Of course, there are many other players who I like to watch. Among them are Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Fernando Torres, Kaka and others who I will not name here. I'm sure many will agree with me that this is the moment we've all been waiting and looking forward to and there goes my beauty sleep. ;-)
