Generally I can be found roaming somewhere in the world. I'm originally from Hungary, I grew up in Kuwait, I did my BA in the States, my MA in the UK, and now work in Hungary, but still return to Kuwait regularly :o)

I'm English Til I Die....

So, I'm not neither a big soccer/ football fan, nor a fan of bars/pubs, but nevertheless yesterday I went to see the England-Portugal match, and I have to say I'm glad I did because it was definitely an experience.


Of course througout the match there was much excitement and buzzing in the place, people arrived wearing flags, red hair, and wearing football T-shirts was a must.

As more and more beer was consumed, people got louder, randomly singing the British anthem, and several football cheers, like the one I have as a post title:

I'm English till I die
I'm English till I die
We will win the Worldcup
and the Germans will cry

Well, that won't happen. As soon as Portugal scored the final goal, the whole place went quiet, and even a few tears were shed. It was a bit sad...

Anyway, I think I'll definitely go watch the final, and maybe even Italy-Germany, considering I have an Italian and a German friend, so it'll be interesting :o)
