Que sera sera....

England lost, booo..

(Portugal vs. England, 7/1/06)

My funny Indian commentary of the day is that I pointed to a section with Portugese supporters and said to my brother, "look there's Goa." If the analogy is lost to you allow me to explain. In many ways the stadium is a metaphor for colonial India. Amid a subcontinent dominated by the British, there in corner was a small Portugese outpost. (click on the picture to englarge)

The neatest moment of the game occurrred right before penalty kicks were used to determine the winner and they played "Que sera sera" in the stadium and everyone sang along together. Sadly what was to be was Eng-ur-land losing. Again.
