The End

Game Over - Entry nr 100.

This will be the last entry of this blog. If you are a new reader, start from the beginning which was in February 2010.
When I started this blog, I did it because I was looking forward to seeing Chile play at the World Cup again. One of my fondest memories of football was when I was 15 years old and Salas, Zamorano and the rest of the Chilean football team took the world by storm at the World Cup in France 1998.

The team that they would bring to South Africa 12 years later, was so much better. Two days after I wrote the first entry in this blog, Chile was struck by a massive earthquake which made us Chileans worry about our people. Risen out of ashes, I knew that the football team would represent the Chilean people at the World Cup. It made me become more interested in the team and I followed any news that I would come across. Many posts ended here.

When the World Cup finally arrived, my hopes were answered when Chile won their first match against Honduras. Now I knew that they were ready for the party. Unfortunately, the party ended yesterday but the World Cup continues a few more days, without Chile. Chile lost to the number 1 team in the World at this moment Brazil. I know that 99% of all Chileans are satisfied with the effort that Chile made during the tournament. We just cannot win against Brazil, they have put a voodoo spell on us. I have only two things to complain about and they were not even Chileans. I believe that the Vuvuzelas and many of the referees destroyed much of the World Cup experience. More postitive was Chile's play, according to many experts a fresh wind to the World Cup.

The original name of the blog is Chile - Road to World Cup 2010. Now that road is over and there is no use to continue writing here. Thanks to Tailsweep, I have had the pleasure to see where my you, my readers come from. Thanks to Google translate, you were able to read my words in your own language. I have had visitors from many parts of the world. However, some of you have entered almost every day. Santiago, Stockholm, London, California, Toronto, Texas, Edmonton, Sydney, Melbourne and the rest of you, thanks. I will probably continue writing something else, or similar in the near future, I will post a link to my new blog here. Now I will enjoy the summer.

Hi, first i would like to thank you for all the efforts u put in in this wonderful blog it was a pleassure reading your articles although i recently found it...in this year world cup i felt in love with the chilian team although i only knew valdivia since he plays in one of my country clubs and i knew he was good so when i started watching the way the others (SANCHES, GONZALEZ, VIDAL) played the game i instantly loved them they were diffrent and the players are all young and needed to prove themselves and they did although i felt they lacked the energy they always had when they played against brazil maybe that was due to the history they share nonetheless i always thought they had the strength to pull it through like france did in 1998 but i was wrong nonetheless im still proud of this team and his achievements and i hope that u never stop updating us with their news since i believe the chilians will come back in 2014 tougher, stronger and better than how they were therefore, can u please keep updating us with their news and thanks again for all your efforts
