I was lucky enough to get down to the Cape Town Stadium to see my World Cup favourites Portugal take on the nuclear missile happy North Koreans… In typical Cape Town winter fashion- it was absolutely pouring for pretty much the entire day (forget cats and dogs, this was more like wildebeest and white rhinos).
Nonetheless, the weather didnt affect the spirits of the supporters- who were in full voice for the entire 7 goal thriller.
I sat about 5m from Ronaldo on the left wing in the first half and was going absolutely beserk everytime he broke forward and terrorised the Korean defenders with his dazzling array of tricks and flicks! He even scored an awesome diski-style goal, controlling a pass on his back before slotting it home- what a genius! (we all know he totally meant to do it as well, hehe).
Post match we popped off to Tequila Town to have a little warmer-upper before hitting a nice warm yummy shower at home.
At the end of the day- I was totally soaked from head to toe but ecstatic that I’d seen a little bit of World Cup history… Now for some flu meds and a mooiness to hook up a little vicks vapour rub (im a real baby when sick).
