Argentina–Europe: A Match to Be Repeated

Sunday football day. After a week’s anticipation, we finally got our acts together and formed two teams strong enough to enter the confrontation: Argentina had to be beaten, so resolved some Germans, an Italian, a Greek, a Norwegian, a Belgian, and a Dutchman (that’s me).

We booked a proper astroturf field on campus and all set out. It immediately became an exciting game, and within minutes, Europa lagged 2-0 behind. After which we evened equally swiftly. Then again, we headed to a distance of 4-2. We were getting tired, we were disorganised. Came 5-3, then we felt something had to change. The team was getting it’s act together while the Argentines, all individually quite good players, were getting equally tired and a little quarrelsome. Our advantage, and after coming to a 6-6 stalemate, we kicked back with some odd but nicely performed quick actions. 8-6.

The game finished with us winning, 8 to 7, and a “dispute” over whether the Argentinian side should be granted a penalty or not. Wisely, we would not have that happen, and, so we won the day.

But we were all agreed that it was a wicked game, and will be doing this more often. Next Sunday we’re there again, running out onto the (slightly too green) field, to upkeep our honour for people and continent!
