Our participation in the Eurocup, and we wake up from the dream suddenly and undeservedly. They should have let us dream a little more, but suddenly they threw a bucket of cold water on us. Many of us got hooked little by little to this European Championship. I confess to having looked at the list of Luis Enrique and having frowned at names that didn’t sound like anything to me or that sounded like very little to me … I’m a bad fan, I openly admit it.
And I didn’t get hooked on the competition until days later. Too many venues, too little public, many new names of players, many national teams, little atmosphere, all that from my point of view, of course. Above, I was also one of those who was slightly annoyed to see certain players placed in positions in which they shone less, case of Llorente, the boy who could have scored a couple of goals and given another two, playing side and more concerned with defending than attacking.
In short, all were doubts, but the truth is that I became hooked on the competition and the team. It always hurts when you go from the group stage to the knockout stages. I’m sorry that teams like Sweden, Germany, Portugal, etc. I feel sorry for it. I am a freaky hobbyist. Melancholy is always stronger than euphoria.
We’ve only won one game within 90 minutes, I think. The others have been draws or extensions and penalty shootouts. We have only clearly won one. So we can say that we have been going through rounds by the hair, although the Selection In some games he has been excited about his game, but let us recognize that it has been very difficult not to compare these well-intentioned, talented and suffering boys with that selection of super footballers that took us to the top for four years. It has been inevitable for me to remember towers scoring that wonderful goal to intractable Germany.
Thank you, new generation and new Selection. You have made us vibrate, and that is already a lot. Luis Aragones he will be ranting, but very proud of you.
