No, I don't have to justify it by saying 'The SOCCER World Cup'. It is the one and only World Cup. And besides I have kept pretty quiet about it so far, but I can hold my tongue no longer. Today was the first game of the 'Round of 16' and the host nation, Brazil, faced off against fellow coffee growers, Colombia.
|Brasil vs. Colombia|
The Brazilians were in their familiar strip, looking trim and ready for action. The Brazilians demonstrated their smooth and silky skills across both halves. Admittedly there were a few hairy patches before the Brazilians took control. The Brazilians had a few close shaves as the game progressed. Their fortunes waxed and waned a little during the match, and on occasions the Brazilians were a shear delight. By the end of the game the Colombians looked bushed, and the Brazilians snatched victory when Gonzalo Jara muffed his penalty kick.
