Well believe it or not BRAZIL is out of FIFA'10. As disappointing as it can be for football fans all over the world and so in India, the truth has been told. So, who was better in the match? I guess both the teams played well, it was a tough fight but nonetheless at the end of the day Netherlands was better and so they won!
This football season has been full of ups and downs especially for the biggies!!! Teams like Italy, France, England performed below everyones expectations. So there was something to cheer for many since the World No. 1 team was still in line but all hopes have vanished with the Brazilians being knocked out of the tournament.
The atmosphere in my office was worth noting. While on one hand everyone was busy making pages, on the other a goal or two by the teams drew the attention towards the TV frequently. It was as if everyone would jump into the field to get Brazil score a goal. But unfortunately everyone had to suffice themselves by limiting themselves to the edge of their seats.
Unfortunately, the excitement was limited. The moment the match got over, "shit, damn, WTF" were some of the phrases/words that could be heard all around. Though the majority of the office seemed to support Brazil, there was someone who was too elated to see Brazil lose and that's the high command of my office (I better not mention the name). The reaction showed as if that the Netherlands had won the world cup itself.
I log into FB to update my status and gosh!! I see Its too late most of my friends had already updated their statuses with Brazil's loss!! But still I update mine! I call my parents and get to know that while my brother was rejoicing Brazil's loss (cos he is an ARGENTINA supporter) my dad was in a state of disbelief. To balance the family environment, my mother posed a smile and spoke to me saying that the match was amazing, both the teams played well, it was not Brazil's day at all.
All in all it was not such a wonderful day for Brazil and its fans all around the world!
