Enjoying The Pleasant Distraction Of The World Cup Footbal.
Just sitting here, quietly relaxing and listening to the BBC Radio 5 commentary about last night’s football game between Uruguay v The Netherlands.
It started well for The Netherlands with two attempts no goal and then Uruguay tried to take control and had several attempts on goal.
For abit The Hethgerlands side seemed rattled and then they got their first goal, jubilation from the 200 strong crowds of neighbours in the street outside my window where just before they had sounded worried.
They got very upset when Uruguay score before halftime and Holland did not look like they were in control.
When they came back after half time the crowd did not react to Uruguay nearly getting goals and The Netherlands not getting their goals.
There were some big collective gulps and sighs and screams of disappointment, and then The Netherlands scored again, their second goal
The crowd went wild and then The Netherlands. Got their third goal and they were very happy neighbours outside, and then Uruguay got nastier and went all out.
Then they got their second and it went extremely quiet outside for a few m minutes as Uruguay nearly got a third.
Luckily time was up and The Netherlands were through to the final of the World Cup for the first time ever.
The last times they got close was getting twice to a semi final in 1974 and 1978 never before and never since.
It is a beautiful sunny day today starting to think that The Netherlands can win, we will have to wait and see what happens tonight who wins in the Spain v Germany.
An exciting game tonight at 8.30 I can not wait, so will take it easy and relax and enjoy the sun and the pleasant warm weather and enjoy the poleasant distracation of the World Cup Football.
