The Selecao are supposed to be invincible. The titans of the soccer world, indestructible to the efforts of lesser countries.
A Goliath in yellow and blue.
And Mexico? Psh. They just lost to a bunch of Gringos…
Thanks to the boys at Univision, I was able to watch a wonderfully exciting Qiu Qiu Pkv match tonight.
El-Tri played the role of David wonderfully in an upset win. A quick-strike five minutes resulted in two goals for the underdogs with much to prove.
The Brazilians were in their usual attack-mode, but could do nothing to get the ball past Guillermo Ochoa. The 21-year old Mexican backstop was stingier than Mormon at a strip club.
For moments, the samba stars showed all the skill and talent in the world. But what good is it if you can’t get the ball in the net?
I guess, Hugo Sanchez is off the hot seat now for a while. This is potentially a program-saving result.
And Nery Castillo (right)?
He keeps proving that he is the best player in CONCACAF. Write that one down.
It’s not hard to see why Castillo was once considered one of the best prospects in the world. Remember that a work permit issue kept him from joining the Red Devils in Manchester years ago.
Anyways, Mexico hasn’t won anything in a long time.
The sports world is more than familiar with soccer hooligans and out-of-control parents.
Combine those two and you have this soccer mom, who attacked a 13-year old girl and a ref the other day.
“A female parent from the visiting team came running onto the pitch and attacked a 13-year-old. She pushed the 13-year-old onto the ground, so the girl was lying on her back,” Tor Eriksen of the Bardufoss regional sports association (BOIF) told NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting).
The BOIF girls were called a range of nasty names, and were also told to “get their ugly asses off the field”, NRK reports.
That’s mean stuff.
“The referee was completely “shaky”, and the players were crying,” Eriksen said.
Not as bad as this soccer mom, but still reprehensible stuff.
Soccer craziness, it seems, sees no boundaries.
