One heart, two feelings

The Euro 2020 tournament couldn’t hold in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. It was rescheduled to hold in 2021 and it did. This is a soccer tournament organised by UEFA (Union of European Football Associations), it is referred to as UEFA European Championship. I was very preoccupied during the group stages so I didn’t catch the matches, but I wasnt going to miss anyone from the quarter finals.

Right from the very moment England qualified for the the semi finals, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to watch the game. I love the English team and I have always been a fan. They were scheduled to meet Denmark. Denmark, that’s where the problem was. At the beginning of the tournament, Denmark’s midfielder Christian Erikson slumped and was confirmed to have had a cardiac arrest. This affected his team mates emotionally and it affected their performance. My husband narrated how they miraculously made it from the group stage to the round of 16. It was a good story, a kind of story that would be told really well if they were to win the championship.

So here comes the day and I’m torn between the team that I love and the team that I’m feeling emotional about. My son didn’t understand my situation so I took my time and explained it to him. He smiled at me and said “sorry” and then he drew me a picture. He’s at a stage in his life right now where he draws everything.

At the end of the day, at the end of the game, England won. There’s always a story for everyone. England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 qualified for their first ever major final in 55 years.

  1. Denmark, great team and that match was lovely. An epic match…even though England was going to win, even without wuru wuru. 🙂
    The whole tournament was a tale in many segments.
    I loooove SonTer’s drawing and it sure looks like you fa. The skirt is the more beautiful part sef. Tell him that he should draw more and never stop. One of my regrets in life is that I stopped thinking in pictures. If possible, get someone to kukuma teach him to improve the work.

    There are always lessons to learn in life, as the tournament taught us. And also testimonies to drop. The prayer is that even as we move forward, we find joys in what good things happen, passion in what seconds we can grab, and just make the best of every second. At the end of the day, somehow, we all win in one or the other and leave with a story.
