Hello my friends. What a day! After watching the two World Cup Round of 16 games, I went to Starbucks wearing Brazil shirt and there you go I found a Colombia fan proudly wearing his “100% Colombiano shirt.” We both agreed that Brazil did not play well against Chile and winning in penalty shoot outs: Brazil 1 – 1 Chile (3-2 in penalties). Unfortunately for me, Italy were eliminated in the first round by Uruguay ending in 3rd position with 3 points and a negative goal difference of -1 (Italy 0 – 1 Uruguay) … so we have to pick a team…
On the other hand, we also agreed that Colombia did play a mega match against Uruguay eliminating them: Colombia 2 – 0 Uruguay with the goals by midfielder James Rodriguez in the 28th and 50th minute. The necessary question arriving for the upcoming World Cup Quarterfinal game Brazil vs Colombia on Friday 4 June 2014…..
Sure, I was wearing Brazil shirt because Italy are eliminated . However, for Brazil – Colombia I am just about neutral… though with “a debole” for Colombia because they have 6 Serie A players!!!! Bam! So, does Brazil having 3! Yet, two of my favorite Serie A players are with Colombia, oh yea: Atalanta defender Mario Yepes who is also the Captain for Colombia and Fiorentina midfielder Juan Cuadrado!!!!
It’s just World Cup everywhere!!!! So, get that Shakira’s song “DARE LA LA LA” playing and root for your favorite team! Good luck to Giovanni y como diria “Pedro El Escamoso” Mon pirrriiiiiI!!!!
