What a wonderful World......Cup!

It is really a dream: the Azzurri will play the World Cup final match!!!! Commentators were right, the match was absolutely fantastic, engrossing, fascinating. I was so concentrated that I didn’t have diner at half time… so only when I got up today, being particularly hungry, I realized that I wasn’t been eating anything for more then 20 hours. A TV spot of famous drink says: “we all speak football”. Yesterday I ate it too!

I was quite tired and I watched the match alone at home but I should have gone to Turin centre. What a shame! I’ll probably watch the final in Sant’Arsenio. When the match finished streets became full of people who screamed and laughed waving their Italian flags. I opened the window and there was such a loud noise that it seemed to be in the stadium. People at windows seemed all to be around an imaginary pitch. What a fantastic moment…

Now I’m watching the other semi-final... ops it has finished. France 1-0 Portugal, so we’ll play the final against France. I’m afraid of the magic Zidane… however I think also France should be afraid of us… eheh! First of all I hope we’ll enjoy a beautiful match… then if I am able to enjoy our victory too, much better!

Tomorrow morning I’ll do my last exam before my summer holiday. It isn’t a hard one and I hope it will be good. Probably on Friday I’ll already come back in Sant’Arsenio. Here after the rain has fallen the weather has become hotter the before… I’d like to swim all the day!

Now I had better go to bed because I must wake up quite early tomorrow to go to University on time.

See you soon

Good night

Antonio
