The Euro 2008 Will Soon Be Over

Even if I had wanted to it would have been impossible to escape it in Switzerland.

The Euro 2008

I have crossed my fingers for the Swiss,the Dutch,even the Turks and lastly for the Russians.

We have seen good Football,even brilliant Football,and it has been I think enjoyable for all. The fans have been wonderful and every one has had a good time.

The unsold souvenirs and T shirts are all half price in the shops, and we are going to the last Football Party tonight to watch Spain play Germany for the Trophy.

Soon it will all be over.

The outcome?

I would like to remind you of the famous words of Gary Lineker the great English Footballer.

“Football is a simple game;

22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end the Germans win”

You Would Look Pretty in Pink

It must be the Italian flair in their Spirit. But if Bellinzona, a Football Team from the Italian speaking part of Switzerland can’t match the Azzurros in their football the colour of their clothes certainly does.

Last night we quickly watched some of the match between Bellinzona and Xamax Neuchatel. Bellinzona won 4:2 after penalty shooting, and they will now be playing in the Swiss Cupfinal against Basel. As a Challenge League Club they will certainly have a bit of a fight but maybe in their clothes they will dazzle the eyes of the opponents.

I, at least could hardly believe mine as I saw the splashes of colour running over the television screen.

The Bellinzona players’ shorts and jerseys were PINK, Not Baby Pink, not quite Shocking Pink but shocking enough for the green field.

In Ticino they are apparently known as the “Granata”(Pomegranates)

I think we are certainly going to have a colourful European Cup in Switzerland.
