FIFA World Cup - 1









FuFu Life in Frankfurt - Part Twenty Eight
11th June - 12th July 2010 | FIFA World Cup I

I know i should have posted this two months ago because it's so last-year and beeper* but i just wanna share the pictures and videos of 2010 FIFA World Cup taken in Frankfurt, Germany, complete FuFu Life in Frankfurt before continuing FuFu Life in Curitiba, Brazil.

beeper* : an adjective used to convey and share an idea or something that becoming outdated or old (Source : Urban Dictionary)


Germany 4 vs 0 Australia | 20:30, 13th June 2010

I didn't watch all matches. Selectively, i always went to KIA Arena at Goethe Square supporting my favourite teams (Brazil and Argentine) and Germany (because i was there pursuing my master). So the first match Germany had to play with was Australia. Germany had played a brilliant match. After class on one fine afternoon, several of the coursemates decided to watch the group match of Germany vs Serbia at a cafe. Surprisingly, Germany would allow Serbia kick one ball in!


Germany 0 vs 1 Serbia | 13:30, 18th June 2010

Serbian supporters were celebrating around the square.

The whole city (basically Germans) became silent.


Waka waka, this time for Africa!



Germany and Ghana managed to kick Australia and Serbia away, proceeding to Round 16. Germany had to played with England.


Everyone's heading to the square.


The real supporters!




Sports really would enhance patriotism.


A good chance to make extra money too.






Supporters spending money buying flags, caps, wigs, etc.




The most economical way to support the team!




Finally came to KIA Arena, Goethe Square for the thrilling match.


It's a GIANT screen sponsored by KIA Motors.


Germany 2 vs 1 England for the first half.


Supporters kept cheering up the team by vuvuzela-ing.






Taking pictures while waiting for the second half.


Soccer's cheerleading in Germany - flying the flags!


Throughout the match, supporters kept shouting and flying flags.



It's packed with people. 90% of them are Germany's fans. It's extremely high screaming together with the crowd. Sports really get everyone together. I was totally feeling that i was a part of Germany. I supported Germany. I ♥ Germany. After the match, people were drinking beer, dancing, flying the flags, shouting, singing, vuvuzela-ing, honking, etc. It's insane and the city was so chaotic! But i liked it. I was exhausted after basking in the sun for more than two hours. But anyway i really enjoyed it.The next match, Germany vs Argentina would be a tough match though. Aber, alles gut Deutschland (all the best Germany).


Germany 4 : 1 England | 16:00, 27th June 2010




Yeah, let's party!


The square was full with jubilance.






Cheers! Wonder why people always drink beers for all celebrations.




Finally Germany was in the Quarter-finals vs Argentina!


Later, a man with the fake World Cup popped up from nowhere!


Supporters took the cup for pictures!


They kept saying that Germany would bring the real cup back home!


It might possible if the Octopus didn't exist. LOL





The square was full of excitement.


Actually the whole city was hype including the subway station!


On the 2nd July, we didn't have class in the afternoon. So the few of us decided to go to a Brazilian bar for a drink while watching the match Brazil vs Netherlands with other Brazilian supporters.


FuFu supported (Brazil) and Sinidu went to (Ghana).


Heading to the Brazilian bar.


Cycling is really a leisure activity in European countries.


Ops! This is something extraordinary. lol


Ying-han was a small fan of Brazil (KaKa, honestly)!


Brazilians are all happy-go-lucky!


Already started drinking, dancing ans singing before the kick-off.

First goal for Brazil in 10 minutes!



Yeah. (But my hair was such a mess!)

People were dancing and singing when the music was playing!

Everyone was so happy, thinking that Brazil would kick Holland out!








Girls were dancing samba!

World Cup really gets us closer. Love to spend quality time with them all. The first half was really fun. We sang and danced samba a little bit. Second half was relatively quiet. We were all praying hard for the team after Netherlands kicked in one goal.

The musicians played samba to cheer the supporters up.



Silently praying for Brazil!






The atmosphere was very tension.

Everyone was hoping that Brazil could have one more goal!

And ready to watch the penalty.

However, Wesley kicked his second goal in and Brazil lost to Netherlands! That's so unbelievable. But ball is round. Anything is possible. Anyway Brazil is still the team i love the best. They are still young and need more experiences. I heard they are packing home earlier because they wanna do the preparation for the next 2014 World Cup in Rio, Brazil. They gonna be the champion.


Regardless to the lost, we still had fun watching the match together.

this is what I call ""the FALL of TRADITIONAL power"" in football. It will be SPAINS generation next. The good thing though is that you were in the middle of the action---you enjoyed the whole thing and you meet a lot of wonderful people who share the same passion in football. a very liberating experience for you Fufu.

It's only nature that things get change in reality.
Women get old, men get wiser!! Ha ha...
Men is like wine!
