Two massive fixtures in these two days was more than any one can demand for.The turkey game was over the top and clinched my fist so tight that i could have cracked my remote had it been a longer by few seconds.I am so loving this unpredicted games and excepting few mores in these coming legs.This year its the trend of underdogs.Last year it was sole Greece,while this year we have couple of those.
While German banged the Scolari’s ass,loser captain Mr Ronaldo still talked much than the German coach.His pathetic talk indicated that he will soon settle at Madrid which is his childhood dream.But hey there,i tell u something.Its nothing to do with your dream.Two years it was same.Real did wanted him that time then why didnt he move or showed signs of his dream.Right now its his image and his character that are speaking which is no wonder why great people leave United.Lets stop it here and move on to the Euros.
Was Turkey’s game enough to push my adrenaline ? Hell no.Thats what i felt after watching 116(yea the last 4 minutes seemed worthless to me) minutes of nerve wrecking game tiring and breaking ever Dutch men present at Basel.Except for one.The magician and the sole architect of Russians this year’s triumph.Hiddick’s sense and the old Dutch tactic pained in Holland’s soul after they astonishingly stroke first goal to this year’s highest goal scoring team.Its no surprise that he takes teams so long and so well.Last year it was Aussies and this time its Russians.
Not like all other coaches who have big mouths to talk,Hiddick said “After the game I don’t want to talk in big words but it’s a miracle. It’s super what the guys did, super”
Proving why Russia won, he continued saying “I said ‘Hey, we can do it’ because tactically, physically, technically this Russian team is a better team than the Dutch team. You see the passing and the controlling. So we were dominant and I am very happy and very proud of this team.”
Beside all of these stuff with off-pitch topics there was something very noticeable and attractive.Russia’s win was indeed a team effort but their main highlight for me remained Andrei Arshavin .It wasn’t only the goal that made the complete difference but his will to pull out something out of nothing.His performance for tonight’s game can be surely ranked into Euro’s best games.
Tonight’s the last quarter final match paired between Italy and Spain.I will be speaking about them a lot in my next post.Till the time i prepare my little post u can start wondering whether Arshavin can beat Ronaldo ? :)
