Steve Stables World Cup blog - entry 13

After waking up with a hangover and very depressed, I decided to book my flight home. I will be going home today (June 30), which in itself is disappointing.

Vic got a phone call at noon, asking if he knew anyone who wanted to go to the Brazil v Chile game. I jumped at the chance of seeing some good football after watching England play rubbish all tournament.

That night we drove to the game and parked at the park and ride, and then caught the official bus to the entrance of the ground, walking to the final 100 metres to the turnstiles. There were an incredible amount of gorgeous women all dressed up in yellow and green costumes. Maybe I should start supporting Brazil, unfortunately my pride won't let me.

We arrived in the stadium and at the entrance and both sets of supporters were chanting at each other, and out of the corner I saw the riot police running towards us. Oh no, I thought, there's going to be trouble, the funny thing was they ran past the supporters straight into the toilets and then ran back out again.

It was like something out of a Monty Python sketch, we got a few beers and proceeded to our seats. We had some good seats halfway up behind the goal.

The two teams came out to the field with flags flying everywhere. I'm not sure the people who come to watch Brazil are actually Brazilian as no-one knew the words to their National Anthem, so the game commenced.

The football from both teams was of high quality and it was a really good game, but eventually Brazil's class took over and some of their skill was unbelievable.

They looked definitely potential world champions on this performance, there wasn't any signs of the Brazilian's dodgy defence.

Brazil eventually won 3-0 and everyone seemed to go home happy, even I had cheered up for an hour.
