Half a Football Fan

19 Dec

The 2022 FIFA World Cup just concluded with the final match last night. I am not a football fan and did not follow nor watch any of the games the past month.

With Argentina prevailing to be the champion this year, it brought back memories of me being a fan decades ago. It was when Argentina won that year in 1986. And the rave then was, of course, the maestro Diego Maradona. I think I was using the World Cup fever as an excuse not to study for my exams! Hahaha.

I remember I had kept newspaper clippings of the great Maradona, but after the 1986 World Cup ended, so did my interest in the game. And Argentina has not won any further World Cup trophies until this year.

So I watched the highlights of the Final match this morning on my iPad Mini, and it was indeed thrilling. Will it revive my interest in the game? Am I a Lionel Messi fan? Hmm, good question.

Nonetheless, a toast to Argentina for their victory! France can also hold their heads high for giving the world such a high adrenalin-packed World Cup Finals.
