Blå och gul
The streets of Stockholm just roared with the yells of very happy Swedes as Freddie scored the winning goal against Paraguay. If I hadn't known better, I would have thought that the Swedes were just celebrating having more than two days of warm weather in a row. Similarly, after hearing the moans and groans after the tied game against Trinidad last week, it would have been easy to think that the government had just announced it had cancelled Midsommars, Christmas, and New Year's.
Regardless of the dramatics, seeing Freddie score that goal makes me think that watching soccer may not be so dull after all, and maybe I'd better study the game a bit more closely. I can't help but think of an entirely different meaning for målchans, that is, an obvious goal scoring opportunity.
