I should probably just stop watching tournament soccer matches, I think I’m getting too old for the excitement and suspense of it all.
Knowing that Germany has NEVER managed to beat Italy in a European nor World Cup tournament, I sat down to watch the game with an uneasy feeling in my stomach.
“Suffering” through 120 minutes of fast, suspenseful and brilliant soccer, followed by extended penalty shooting, kept me on the edge of my seat and up well past midnight, and probably gave me a few gray hairs in the process. But it was worth it, as Germany managed to finally “break” the “curse of Italy”.
Tonight’s game is Iceland-France, and yes, I’ll be watching and cheering for Iceland.
Good thing this tournament will be over soon.
