Way back in the days when we were cheering our village teams there’s always that goal post we used to think was jinxed. If you don’t score when driving the ball that other direction, chances are you’ll not score when you change sides and most likely the other team will carry home the trophy. My oh my and the amount of gold on that world trophy is sufficient enough to buy me well…..(convert dollar 20 million into Kenya shillings and see what that can buy me.)
Well the sad thing about football is no matter how much your ball possession or shots on target, if that doesn’t translate into goals well then they will be just activities. A team might have 32% ball possession but end up winning because when their precise moment happens, they gracefully translate that into a goal. Well this is a case scenario where numbers lie and at the same time they don’t.
Football karma has such a force that no matter your fans know how to play the drums like the Senegalese fans, you don’t get a goal, you are outta the door, or should I say the stadium?
Now for the Morocco and France game, I don’t know who to cheer, my Casablanca legends or my tall dark and handsome French boys. All I can say is, ‘may the best team win.’
