Since I was a kid I always found the World Cup Games a magic moment. I watched on TV all those people from different countries partying together, each one supporting their own national team, but all of them united for one only reason: passion for football.
I have always wished to attend a World Cup and believed that one day my dream would come truth, but I could never imagine that would be this way. When I was a little girl, I could never imagine Brazil would host a World Cup and that I would be able to watch a World Cup happening in my backyard and in the companion of the two men I most love in this World , my husband and my little boy.
And so we make it!!! My husband took vacation from work and we took the chance of the School holidays to enjoy the most of this Brazil’s World Cup.
So this last sunday, June 15th, my dream turned reality!!!! We went to Maracanã Stadium to watch the electric game Argentina vs. Bosnia Herzegovina.
Our family was divided! While me and my husband was supporting Bosnia-Herzegovina (yes, when talking about football, we brazilians take this rivalry Brazil x Argentina seriously), my little son was supporting Argentina, as he is a big fan of Messi.
My husband bought two Bosnia flags to take to the stadium, but I have to confess that we didn’t have guts to hold bosnian flag inside the stadium. That evening Maracanã was all in blue and white, Argentinians invaded Maracanã and made a beautiful party.
Their passion for football is really contagious, they just don’t stop chanting and they turned Maracanã into their second home. Brazilians who were in the stadium responded their chants, singing ” Sou brasileiro, com muito orgulho, com muito amor!” (“I am brazilian, proudly, with love! “) and “Hexacampeão” (Six times champion!) to provoke Argentinians, who responded back chanting louder and louder.
The game itself was another show! Watching Bosnia national team fight bravely Messi and his companions was really exciting!!
My husband and I were quiet just watching the show, while my son joined the Argentinians party singing with them!! But the atmosphere was a little bit tense, Maracanã was too crowded and we were a little afraid that things could get out of control.
As we were with our little boy we decided to leave the stadium before the game finished to avoid the crowds.
It was a wonderful experience!! Soon I will share with you another great game we watched yesterday Spain vs.Chile!!! Stay tuned!!!
