I just came back from the stadium after watching my team Racing Club defeat the newly promoted Nueva Chicago in the start of the Apertura tournament in Argentina.
Great atmosphere, great expectation but a horrible game of football.
We won 2-0 thanks to two penalties, very well taken by former Fulham striker, Facundo SAVA (pictured below). But that was it. Nueva Chicago was the better team in the first half and they deserved a little bit more.
The best thing of the night????
I saw my childhood friend Juan Manuel passing besides me and as I recognised him we couldn’t believe it!
I watched the whole match with him talking about life and everything that happened to us since the last time we saw each other.
This is like the 4th time I lost touch with him only to see him again in the stadium 2 or 3 years later!
I’m way much happier about this encounter than with the result!
I’ll publish some pictures and hopefully some videos too (as soon as I have the time).
Hopefully, the pics and the videos will help you to see just a little glimpse of how we live football in this part of the World.
