FIFA want Brazil to win .. Everyone else wants Colombia.. should be a cracking game
I am stupidly excited about this. Just got hold of the red shirt, got loads of beer in
(the Bogotá mayor has prohibited the sale of alcohol from 10am tomorrow, in an attempt to cut down on the mayhem that has ensued after the previous wins), and to top it all, the president has given half the country the afternoon off to watch the match. What is more, the place I work has given us the afternoon off as well. It's only reasonable, in the face of the fact that this country (Colombia) is on the brink of a collective nervious breakdown and quite frankly nothing will move tomorrow afternoon at 3pm
I think the worst of the wait and the expectation is that this Colombian team seems in with a reasonable shout of taking the Brasilians. If it was a total no-hope situation, it would be easier to bear, but the expectations round here are now in the stratosphere. Fingers crossed.
(Oh yeah, and it's my birthday tomorrow. They have to win.)
Many happy returns & good luck.
Happy Birthday. My moneys on Colombia.
Shirt is hanging ready to go. Snacks, drinks and a hint of valium in the house.
Wish we were in Colombia today!
Am stupidly excited..
Yeah I'm looking forward to this one, too. Colombia have been great in this World Cup and Brazil have looked beatable. Really hope Colombia give you a happy birthday Col_Buendia.
Nice bit of joined up politics there....
I hope Colombia win this and then go on to win the World Cup and dedicate it to the memory of Andres Escobar.
I've really enjoyed this WC - but I don't think Brazil deserve to win it - so come on Columbia - show us some style.
5 for colombia to win in extra time
ai, Penblwydd Hapus mate
we'll be at a festival but hoping to know how it's going and the result!
will have a dance for yous anyway and a double dance if yous win!
I'll be backing Brazil by default but if Colombia win then I want them to go all the way.
Could have sworn I posted here last night... Or maybe there are two threads.
Anyway! EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This will be an epic match. Brazil will win (or not, as the case may be).
I will get drunk regardless.
ah, not going mad. There was another thread. One where Brasil was spelled correctly, but order of teams not in alphabetical order, as it should be
Quiero con todo corazon que sea Colombia.
Ambivalent cos I think the Brazilian people deserve at least a tin cup in return for all the billions they've coughed up for this masquerade, but Colombia have played cleaner, confounded expectations more and done better dancing. Also: if they win, Brixton too will rejoice.
Jogao! (BIG GAME)! Super nervous here. Vamos Brasiiiiiiiiiiiiiilllllll!!!!
They've told Brazil to try and stay calm - let's see if it works.
That was cool, stopping the anthem music so it was just the stadium singing
I'd love Colombia to win this but fear Brasil will see them off.Too much experience at top tournaments.
Works at Celtic Park and Anfield for YNWA too on big occasions.
Brazil for the win. The final will be so much better if they are in it.
3:2 to Brazil. Neymar gets the winner at 86 minutes.
Had mesen a punt on Colombia at 7/2
...home advantage too of course. and one of their players is called Fred. And another called Hulk. Not sure they can lose. Come on Colombia!
I want a Brazil vs. Argentina final. I sort of want Brazil to win the whole thing but less than I expected. I love this Colombia side though. So, just hoping for an epic really.
Been looking forward to this match
Me too. I've got big hopes for this.
Come on Colombia!
Brazil look dominant in the first 5 mins
