DAY 6.....Youth day in South Africa, a public holiday and a big day for Bafana Bafan. Secound round of group A and against Uraguay or Diego Forlan and Suarez. The nation awaited,we awaited this night and were expecting the result.After Mexico we believed.It was freezing cold in Gauteng and the lads decided that we take the Metro Rail to Pretoria. The Metro rail stops of outside Loftus StadiumThe vibe in the train was sublime,Bafana Bafana fans dancing and anticipating the massive night in Pretoria.
Only problem was that a few of us had no match tickets.It was freezing in the streets of Hatfield. So we were not so fortunate. Oz and Mo went in and well myself,Swaar,Killa and Shazo watched it in a bar in Hatfield.Ebie Ahmed was in there and got the pics and vids. The streets of Hatfield were rocking.
I mean if we lose lets lose with heart. We were poor, We lacked something, We didnt deserve to win honestly.We were outplayed.
Fans were gutted.We didnt even show up.Perriera plays a 4-5-1. I cant understand. No excuses. A cold miserable night, I felt let down.We didnt put up a fight.I expected so much after Mexico.Now it will take a miracle if the Mexico France result doesnt go according to plan. It was cold, we had a long drive as news filtered in that the Metro rail was stuck as there was no electricity.We hired a taxi and I got home,had a piping shower to defrost or thaw out and thats football.Thats how it goes.But the host nation was on the brink of an exit.
