After a sad night yesterday, I would like to thank our national team, to have made us dream !
It was a great World Cup in Germany, all people in Switzerland were behind Swiss team ! It is the first I saw so many people in the street with an great ambiance !

On Friday, the victory between Switzerland and South Korea was beautiful. Swiss team played the first half time very well. After half time, Korean team put pressure on Swiss team, but they could not find the solution against Swiss defence. After this feat, we finished on the first place of the group G. I never saw a passion like that in Switzerland !

After that, we knew it will be very difficult against Ukraine. What’s more, I knew especially for me, that it will a special match after my trip in Kiev.
I saw the match between Switzerland and Ukraine in the Geneva’s ground [1], with almost 10,000 people. The match was very balanced, one post for Ukraine (Shevchenko), one post for Switzerland (Frei). After more than 180 minutes, the two teams did not score any goal. After that, a part that I hate : penalties ! Because penalty shoot-outs are a lottery…Ukraine scored 3 times, Switzerland 0.

I’m a little bit sad, because Swiss team missed to do a new great feat ! But I’m also happy for my ukrainian friend Lena, who is very happy with this victory. Well done to Ukraine !

Lena, you can be sure, between your team and Italian team, I will support your team 🙂 Australia was better than Italy !

Last news : French team won against Spanish team…french team is getting better every match. I’m also a french guy, so next match between France and Brazil, I will be for France !

The World Cup…all people are talking about this World Cup in Germany. So I have no choice, I had to speak about it 🙂 During this World Cup, I will often post some articles on my blog.
I really like the Swiss team this year, we have one of the best team since long time ago. It’s a young team (one of the youngest team in this World Cup), but I think we can do a good World Cup.
I support firstly Swiss team, but not only my team. I also like Sweden, Japan and South Korea. But I have two different problems with Japanese and South Korean teams :

  • Japanese team : they lost the first match against Australia 🙁 I’m sad for my Japanese friends, they really like their team. We will see Japan against Croatia and Brazil. It will be difficult for them, but I believe they can do something ! Don’t worry, I also like Australian team, I saw their qualification for the World Cup in Australia, with many Australian people 🙂
  • South Korean team : they are playing in the same group than Switzerland, so Swiss team will play against South Korean team on 23th June. We will see, but sorry in advance for my Korean friends 😉

This evening, the match between Swizterland and France were a tactical battle. The two team were very nervous, so the match was not so good. Too many yellow cards for nothing…the referee was bad ! But I was with friends, Swiss and French (Pierre-Alexandre and Jean-Baptiste), and it was funny.
Now Swiss team have no choice, they have to win against Togo the next Monday. I will not be able to see this next match, because the next week, I will be in a security training, the SANS Security Essentials.

I took pictures during this match, you can them in my new gallery. There are some movies where you can hear French and Swiss national anthem. Don’t forget to see these movies, very funny 😉

See you soon, on Monday, for the matches, and Hop Swiss !!!
