Did you watch the USA vs Portugal soccer game today? Oh my gosh. What a disappointment!!
We were watching and screaming and sharing high fives. We were listening to the commentators talking about what an upset the USA was serving up to Portugal within the last minutes of the game. We were counting down the minutes and were so disappointed that five minutes were added to the clock. When there was only a minute left, we were feeling very protective of our team and asking them to be conservative and slow down. But they couldn’t hear us through the screen.
Jeff said don’t count it over just yet. Portugal is a strong team and could pull this off. And then with less than thirty seconds, Ronaldo got his break away, with a great pass to Varela who used his powerful head to shoot and score and win!
Oh man, were we disappointed and quieted. What a huge upset, when we felt we had this one!!
I guess they wanted it more than we did, and took the offense and the win away from us. We have to never give up until it’s completely over! Hmmm.
