Thank you Samurai Japan!

It was long match....Japan vs Paraguay, both teams seemed even....
Then, penalty kick.....we hoped.......

But unlucky........Japan lost this game....
That was close.....but nice play!
They did great and we proud of them!

And congratulations for Paraguay.

My second favorite England lost the game against Germany, 1-4. Unbelievable!

British Prime Minister and German chancellor watched the game together

NO GOAL … It is obvious the ball did cross the goal line.
That was a serious error made by a referee. Unbelievable!
What if it was counted as a goal?

Happy faces of gentlemen from Germany
Mr. Henning and Mr. Hansen
Mr. Hoffmann

Go Spain Go!

When Spain lost its first match against Switzerland,
my mind was covered with dark clouds.

Last night’s results of Group H … Spain 2-1 Chile / Switzerland 0-0 Honduras
Then, Spain and Chile advance to the final 16 and Switzerland and Honduras were eliminated.

‘No day so clear but has dark clouds’

I feel sorry for 2 girls, Paola and Anna who are from Switzerland.
☆Their comment on our hotel … clean hotel, receptionist friendly,
rooms a little bit small, but it’s good that we can use internet in the room.

NEXT … Spain vs. Portugal (3:30 a.m., Japan time, on June 30)
Ahh … My heart is already beating so fast.

Sorry … there was no TV broadcasting of the game, USA vs. Algeria
They had to watch the game with their own laptop somehow.

Still 0-0 … silence

second-half injury time … still nothing

Then, SCORED!!!!!!!!!

U.S. lacrosse all-star team of university students got excited when US national soccer team made a dramatic winning goal in extra time in the second half. USA beat Algeria and advanced to the Round of 16.
