My daughter's boyfriend, Dave told me that Spain’s World Cup would come to an end last night. As far as he was concerned, Germany were unstoppable. As good as the Spaniards were, they wouldn’t beat a team who had shown Argentina the door with a four nil defeat.
Well,as we all know now, he was wrong. Xavi fooled the Germans by directing a long shot with his left foot which flew directly to Puyol’s head and from there past the keeper into the net.
That wasn’t the only time that Spain looked as though they would enter the final of the competition. On my television it looked as though Spain had the upper hand for most of the match. Their passing left to right and back again dazzled the opposition who seemed powerless to keep the ball. Queen Sofia was there and looked delighted that her team had triumphed.
I am not going to make any predictions for the final and nor should Dave. What I do know is that my neighbour Manuel will be stocking up with fireworks for Sunday in preparation. I can’t wait to hear them go off!
