blew up my brain.
I hate everything.
Chancellor of Germany cheering for her national team. It was really cute. (:
ESPN did a clip about racism in European football for World Cup 2006. It’s full of information and worth a watch. I am posting this video, because I just heard the Croatian fans’ racist chants toward Balotelli.
If you can see in the video, racism in football is prevalent especially in Italy and Spain. Balotelli, being poor Ghanian immigrants’ child, got bunch of shit growing in Italy as a “black kid” who played football. Even when he was playing in Inter Milan, one of the best team in Italian league, he got racially abused everywhere.
Now, he is a part of the finest 23 football players in Italy, and he is there to represent his country. The opposition team starts monkey chants for him. Just imagine what he would have felt. Getting racially abused by international level.
UEFA fined Croatian Football Association. Okay. Cool. So what? What are you going to do with this player who is only 21 years-old and got racially abused by god-knows-how-many numbers of fans? I fucking hate it when one person blatantly says some racist shit to me.
It’s just not right. Let’s stop. Please.
Netherlands vs Denmark.
It was a disappointing match for me, because I am an Oranje fan. Basically, Denmark played better. One chance they had was lethal, (It was phenomenal, I didn’t think he would dribble it in.) and Netherlands were not. It looks tough for Netherlands now, because it seems like that they have to win both games.
WHAT THE FUCK ROBIN VAN PERSIE. IF YOU DID HALF THE SHIT YOU DID IN ARSENAL WHYYYYY. FUCK YOU ROBBEN WHYWHYWHYWHYWHY. YOU NORMALLY SMASH THOSE IN.
Portugal vs Germany.
Good game. I enjoyed watching both sides. Portugal midfield struggled against German solid, maybe perhaps the best, midfield. It was unlucky goal for Portugal, Pepe was not positioned right because of the deflection and Gomez calmly converted the goal. Ronaldo definitely did his best, but you can’t do really anything when your midfield is powered down like that. They would definitely will remember the very last chance that Varela had.
P.S. Hummels was verrrry impressive. Wow.
GOTZE NO. LOW, PLAY HIM.
Euro 2012 starts tomorrow.
I am so fucking stoked.
I checked out Euro 2012 squads for each team.
I was actually surprised with England. It looks solid, especially on defense. I see some questionable picks from midfielders, but I once realize it’s infamous English midfield. Whatever. It looks okay. They need to do well without Rooney’s suspension for first few game. They look strong. Their weakest spot looks like their manager, Roy Hodgson.
I really can’t say anything about Spain yet due to the Copa del Rey…
Netherlands squad. My favorite team. It’s….. okay. I see some weak spots in defense as always. It’s midfield looks bit weak too. I am bit surprised Afellay got picked. Whatever. I am once realized World Cup 2010 was the optimal chance for them to win a major cup. GODDAMN IT. CASILLAS, INIESTA, AND ROBBEN WHY.
I am for some reason actually impressed with Portugal, and somewhat think that it has better squad then Netherlands. BUT WHATTHEFUCK QUARESMA? WHAATT? Anyway. This is a major test for Ronaldo. If he somehow pulls off semi-final at Euro, he will win Ballon d’Or over Messi. He was truly brilliant this season, and I want him to show the same performance in Euro.
France looks okay. I am truly excited that Gourcuff is in French roaster, though. I doubt that he will get any playing time, but oh man. I am just glad that he got picked. (Blanc’s nepotism? Maybe) Their forwards look threatening. Benzema, Ben Arfa, Valbuena, Remy, Menez, and Ribery. We will see.
Italy looks somewhat decent. Borini, Balotelli, Cassano, and Giovinco will be fun to watch. Their midfield and defense looks solid as always. But what the fuck, Pirlo giot picked. You are not allowed to be that good when you are that old. Geez, don’t you age?
Germany looks strong as fuck. I feel like it’s the best team. It’s solid everywhere and midfield just looks sick. they would suffocate every midfield that is playing against them. I actually think Germany will win. Just look. Defense look solid as hell. (Hummels & Mertesacker.. center halves wow.) Khedira and Schweinsteiger can play defensive mid. Bender brothers who have been impressive are there as well. Ozil and GOTZE is there. I doubt that Gotze will play over Ozil, but it’s really exciting that Gotze will play in Euro. I swear this kid is… brilliant. Just so good. Gomez. Klose, Muller, and Podolski forward looks very lethal too.
I JUST CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS. It’s going to be great. (:
