I am still trying to recover from the shock and shame of yesterday Brazil’s defeat by Germany. We all knew we would have a hard time to win Germany. Everyone knew they have a much better team than ours, but what shocked us most was that we didn’t react at all. Our national team didn’t fight at all! And that we couldn’t accept! Watching all those Brazilians in the stadium crying in the first half of the game was too much depressing.
We, brazilian people, just can’t understand what happened and I believe that even Brazil’s national team players can’t understand either. Anyway, explanations right now are just useless.
I just hope that this historical match be a lesson to brazilian football authorities and make them understand that international football has changed. Having individual talents in a football team is not enough to win a World Cup. “Football is a team sport”, that’s what the football coach of my six-year-old boy always says to his school team. And yesterday, it became very clear that we don’t have a good TEAM.
But yesterday nightmare can’t erase all the beautiful moments Brazil lived in this World Cup. Experiencing a World Cup in our own country is an emotion we will never forget. There are still two games left for the World Cup end,and on saturday Brazil plays again. It is time to raise our heads and face our mistakes. Life goes on!
