 no one is expecting a good performance from our national team here hahahahahaha

 

:laughing:

At least that's relaxing? You know nothing's going to happen there so you can just grab the popcorn and have a lot of fun. 

It's my preferred way of watching this negl. 

(I am also shallow so I tend to go ooooh if I find someone ahem, interesting, and suddenly I have an interest in that team because I want to have my eye candy for as long as possible)

Mexicans? relaxing while watching football? Where is that magical land where it happens, i've never seen a mexican who likes football behaving when the national team is playing :rofl:they become animals!! I don't follow the sport much so i don't get too excited but boooy isn't it fun to watch other people's reactions!

And the memes on SNS... Oooh i'm waiting for the memes.

Even our president was riding the meme train, proclaiming that "that was no penalty" after the 2014 match between Mexico and the Netherlands:rofl:

:laughing: so much like the entire continent of Europe then!

I am not so involved either so I have a blast whenever it happens because I do enjoy a good football game but watching people lose it even more so!

Here it's more like... there's a lot of hype around it, but realistically speaking... I don't think many people expect we actually have a chance to get too close to the final or anything... :slinkaway:

Still, surprises do happen. Like Iceland advancing to 1/4 at Euro 2016. Heck, I'm gonna be rooting for them this time as well. :laughing:

Anyway, as long as we advance to 1/8 finals, it's probably not gonna be seen as too much of a disappointment. If we don't, however, there will be whining. Our nation loves complaining. (It's a generalisation, I know... every nation complains about football :biggrin:).

This is another super-relaxed championships for me. Housemates are huge soccer fans, but, oops, just like with Euros 2016, Holland failed to qualify for Worlds 2018. So, the only thing I may really watch once or twice is some talk show on Dutch telly where some guys chat soccer... and are accompanied by a dachshund called Messi. Messi is pretty famous in these parts, has his own twitter and facebook account and stuff. :68468287:   Otherwise, I'll probably have some soccer matches play on telly in the background, but really watch? Nope.

Yay, thank goodness for it not being literally on my doorstep. I’ve got a major football stadium in a couple of bus rides from home, and matches being held there is not the time I can enjoy...

Ah you're our 'host' for this Cup! :tumblr_inline_ncmif5EcBB1rpglid:

But yes, seriously, it is not fun at all when any of this is near you. Especially when the less fun part of the audience gets drunk and has a go at it. Sigh. Knock on wood, there are few of these issues this time around.

They try and ban selling alcohol in shops near the venue on the days matches are held, but does it help anyone? Ok, we’ve got to survive the craze...
