ITALY VS USA CONFEDS CUP 2009

Myself & Mo.Dream come true as we support the Azurri in South Africa
Experiencing the Park & Ride in Pretoria for the first time
The atmosphere in the stands
Last night myself,Mo,Faiz Oz,Killa,Nabeeha and Mini decided to watch the Italians against USA. I was a bit worried as I had no match ticket but managed to score a Category 1 ticket 3 rows away from the pitch and watching from there was unbelievable. It was my first time at LOFTUS and the stadium is incredible.The atmosphere was great,the fans were awesome and the Azzuri ran out 3-1 winners.

I took some footage to depict the atmosphere below and more importantly the Azurri got their campaign underway with a victory. And great goals they were. The lad Rossi a revelation. Pirlo was also fantastic. I was quite worried during the first half as Italy struggled. The USA Striker(Hesky lookalike) was giving Chielini and Legro a hard time. The Red Card,Harsh but cancelled out with the Italian goal ruled for Offside. And when USA converted the Penalty to make it 1-0 I thought we in for it. Second half and with the introduction of Rossi who chose Italian citizenship as opposed to his place of Birth USA fired Italy into the lead. Then De Rossi fired from distance and his Celebration at the Italian Bench clearly illustrates that Italy are here to mean business and they taking the tournament seriously.

Azurri Fans were pumped up at Loftus
The view from my Category 1 seat.

The third was just breathtaking with Pirlo the architect. 3-1.The victory was important and what many Italian Fans wanted. The walk back to the Park and Ride and out of the Stadium was encompassed by chanting Azurri Fans. For me…..I had the privilege of experiencing all of this LIVE from a great seat with great Fans

The atmosphere in the stands
In the other group game Brazil were stunned by an Egyptian Comeback. The Pharaohs showed that they will be no push overs come Thursday night at Ellis Park and if it wasn’t for a late Kaka Penalty Brazil would not have won. Kaka THE GALACTICO shone!

So its off to Ellis Park on Saturday for swoosh0018.com.Cant wait,


Forza Azurri
