As an Argentina fan, I really do not care about Euro 2012. But when I have a big tournament to watch like this, although there is no my favourite team, I have to watch. I like to watch football match. For me, Euro MATCH is a kind of Champions League match, which will involve most of the great players in Europe.
Anyway although there will be no my favorite team to play, I just hope Netherlands to qualify for the finals and win. Perhaps because Dennis Bergkamp's goal against Argentina in 1998 which although made me disappointed, yet the goal was beautiful, so I RESPECT Holland. Or perhaps the main rival for Holland is Germany, because I do not like Germany since 1990 - where Rudi Voeller's diving brought Germany to glory against Argentina.
Anyway, that's all insignificant actually. More important for me is Euro tournament will not take place peacefully. Yesterday, most people in UK tweeted about a documentary on BBC - Stadium of Hate. This documentary is about strong Racism and anti-semitism occur in Eastern Europe. Poland and Ukraine will be the host for this year - so I think better you watch this Euro.
Oh before that, sacrebleu Patrice Evra! Having been disheartened by Luis Suarez last season, I think he will not be able to face the Racism that will happen in his games
As a conclusion, Racism is everywhere. Even though many organizations tried to combat this problem, try to exterminate this, but it will still be there. To quote George Carlin, "in World War 2, Nazi Germany lost in war, but fascism wins".
If Evra play well, what can I say, bonne chance.
