Brazil v Argentina today 3 September, 2006Posted by lasagnechef in Uncategorized.
Not much other news today as all our players are off on internationals, England won 5-0 yesterday, it’s weird not having any Arsenal players in the team now. I suppose Theo will be there soon. So today is the first international staged at The Grove and it’s a big one, Brazil v Argentina. Gutted I haven’t got a ticket but I’ve got to go to work anyways, it’s on BBC1 so I’m gonna record it.
The full squads can be found here but they include Cicinho, Gilberto Silva, Julio Baptista, Kaka, Ronaldinho, Robinho, Samuel, Mascherano, Gonzalez, Rodriguez, Riquelme, Tevez, Messi and Delgado. Should be a great game to go to, if I was going I’d support Brazil imply because they’ve got two Gooners in the team. There will be a massive Arsenal following at the game mixed with the Samba of Brazil and the passion of Argentina. I wish I could go but I suppose I’ll watch it all later.
It will be the first time our new signing Baptista will play at The Grove and I’m sure he’ll get a magnificent reception along with Gilberto, hopefully he’ll grab a goal just to make the day even more special. If you are going have fun, I hope to go to another International at the Grove in years to come, I don’t understand why they don’t play some England matches down here instead of them all being up in Manchester.
I really can’t think of anything more to say, I’ve got work in an hour so I better get ready…see you later!
