It was an honor to cheer for our national team. The World Cup dream didn’t end last night, it only just began 🙂 This is only the beginning. We didn’t even bother sending a team to try to qualify for the last world cup. Now we reached 2nd round. Not bad at all. Everybody ♥’s Azkals when you’re winning, but who still *stays* when it’s already a lost. But in fairness, most of the people who watched live last night didn’t just ABANDON the team before the game was over. They still stayed to cheer on the Azkals after the match.
Kuwait indeed has a more matured Football system than the Philippines. Good thing is that the sport has already set its foothold on Philippine soil and hopefully someday, Filipinos will realize that it is the sport suitable for us than basketball. Football is a Sport in the Middle East that already institutionalized, they have professional clubs over there while we don’t even have a *proper* pitch.
People should realize that winning or even just qualifying for the World Cup isn’t going to happen *overnight* or even a few years. For AZKALS should take it as a humbling experience. Fame and attention can really get into anybody’s head. It’s just a little reminder from God that “hey, I am the almighty. I can make or break you. So be humble.” heheheh. PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE! 🙂
