I had the chance to watch this last Friday, the Fifa World Cup’s Quarter Finals, held at Brazil, specifically the game between Brazil and Colombia. I need to admit this was one of the toughest games I’ve ever seen, not only from the games when Spain lost but to the one when Mexico also surprisingly lost, too. Arbitration, some people claimed, was kind of mediocre. I ain’t shocked at all. As we know, Brazil defeated Colombia 2-1 in a historic quarter final match that shocked all kinds of football fans. At the end, Colombian football player James Rodriguez, broke down in tears after giving the extra mile for his team. “I’m crying because I think we left all inside. Sadly, arbitrator didn’t help too much, Brazil is a good team, but we left all and we’re calmed because of that. We wanted to go on, but well, we’re good”, said James on an interview with Colombian tv station, Caracol. “They told me I am a good player, and so much cracks embracing me make me happy…”, said when being asked about what did David Luiz and Dani Alves told him when he was being comforted. I do believe this Fifa World Cup of this year might be full of controversies due to arbitration and other things, but the only good things it did was not only to join all of us together (and that includes people that resisted at the very beginning but surrended) and live the emotion, enjoy each game, but to witness surprises like the embrace and comfort made by David Luiz and Dani Alves to James Rodriguez. Colombia might lose this game, but it did win something very important: the achievement of being part of the quarter finals, and the recognition of being among the best of the best. I always believed that in order to be among the great ones, you need to leave on the field what’s left of you, that thirst of winning, the hope, because the real victory is yet to come on a better time.
