The first match of the Semifinals start in under an hour and I’m equal parts nervousness & excitement! I hope we get to enjoy a very entertaining match, but more importantly, I hope for an outcome that I like. Don’t make me cry boys, VAMOS LA ROJA!!
Iker Casillas; Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Pique, Jordi Alba; Sergio Busquets, Xabi Alonso, Iniesta; Xavi, Silva, Negredo.
Hmmm….Negredo? I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t expecting him to start and the decision kind of makes me nervous. I just hope that if Negredo doesn’t work out up front, VdB knows to pull the plug early on & not keep a boring game going longer than it has to. I don’t mean to sound pessimistic, I really do hope Negredo beefcake does well. VAMOS, VAMOS, VAMOS!
Rui Patricio; Joao Pereira, Pepe, Bruno Alves, Coentrao; Veloso, Meireles, Moutinho, Nani, Cristiano Ronaldo; Almeida.
It’s obvious I want La Roja to move on to the finals, but I really wouldn’t be opposed to seeing one or two fab Portuguese goals!
