Happy to be a part of this.My seats in the Italian Zone.Category 2

From Bloemfontein it was off to Loftus and Pretoria and for the big one….Italy vs Brazil. And I coudnt wait. I was nervous to be honest…and excited. Got to the stadium to a Carnival like atmosphere…Stadium laden with Yellow and Blue.
It was a big one for Italy, they had to win or draw…and nothing prepared me for the shocking display by the Italians. We had great seats..In the Azurri stronghold. And we with a a crew of 20.
I always met my close friend and Italian Model Myla Raddichia before every game.It was superstition.
But when Brazil scored one,two and three I was gutted. What was happening. The fans behind us, the Italians and myself were in a state of shock. It was a a horrific Italian display. Brazil still hit the bar twice. The Italian fans were quiet. Many said that the team shouldn’t come out. I was low in morale. It was Izzet(pride) now. Everytime Brazil had the ball there was danger. I was so afriad that we would catch 6. It was extraordinary. Ive never felt like that. Normally Italian defences were rock solid. I mean Toni was poor and so was Dosenna. Why didnt Lippi start with Santon or Grosso and not start with Toni. Montlivio was out of depth against calibre opposition and Kaka,Robinho and Fabiano were menacing. We were shell shocked, embarrassed and outplayed by the Brazilians. Then there was wind of Egypt down 3-0. Fans were anxious and logging on to cellphones to see if Italy made it. We needed one more.Some said Italy made it. The truth though is we never deserved it. Whats worse is that Egypt messed it up and the USA of all people strolled in through the back door. The Egyptians who had been playing so well…..were dumped out much to the dismay of their fans. We couldnt believe it. And when the final whistle blew I was glad that we were put out of our misery. The Egyptians in Lenz were fuming also.I chatted to a few of them.

I dint too any post match coverage, Italians were gutted and trudging out of the stadium. The Brazillians were dancing and I limped out of the stadium ,boarded our quantum,had a final drive home with the boys and hit the bed with voice going. It was a splendid weekend…of football and Swoosh0018 now goes to Ellis Park for Brazil vs Bafana Bafana. ant wait…..But lets be realistic……
We all will brace ourselves for a Brazil vs Spain Final

We had great seats.Category two tickets.Was awesome
