ANTONIO FROM ITALY BLOGGED IN JULY
I’m very sad for England. I think penalties are a very bad way to lose, aren’t they? I remember the final match of 1994 World Cup in the USA in which we lost 3-2 against Brazil in a penalty shootout. Although I was only 10 y.o. I perfectly remember the last Baggio’s penalty.
Anyway my completely wrong prediction about semi-final was England vs Brazil… luckily I didn’t bet anything! I really enjoyed Brazil vs France in which Zidane was extraordinary: everything he tried to do, he did! Brazil seemed to be tired and not brilliant as normally. With “normally”, however, I don’t mean this World Cup competition.
It is going to rain in Turin. I’m very happy because it’s really hard to study with this hot weather. I’m finishing to prepare a composition about media for the exam I’ll do next Thursday. The exam’s name is “Technical Writing” (in English) but it is about writing in Italian language. I think we are quite strange sometimes! A lot of Italian people use some English words when talk or write in Italian. I guess they do that to try to make their arguments more interesting and professional. In my opinion it’s a very ridiculous way to communicate and I absolutely don’t like it. It’s really funny to find out that some of them don’t speak English… eheh
I’m going to have diner to zio Mario’s (uncle Mario) home. He is a cousin of my father who lives in Turin. He’s always really kind to me and he often invites me for diner.
Have a nice evening, Rachel! Please say good luck to Italy tomorrow, we’ll need a lot. I’m very sad for the article against Italian people published on Der Spiegel. However I don’t want to say anything about it because I think (and I hope) it doesn’t represent what German people think of us.
For me the World Cup is a fantastic moment to be able to enjoy the sport with people from all over the World. We’re all citizens of the same World!
See you tomorrow… (just before the match)
