Força - NELLY FURTADO 

After all these years, I still believe this is the best soccer anthem ever..

“It is the passion flowing right on through your veins

And it’s the feeling that you’re oh so glad you came
It is the moment you remember you’re alive
It is the air you breathe, the element, the fire
It is that flower that you took the time to smell
It is the power that you know you got as well
It is the fear inside that you can overcome
This is the orchestra, the rhythm and the drum

Como uma forca, como uma forca
Como uma forca que ninguem pode parar
Como uma forca, como uma forca
Como uma fome que ninguem pode matar

It is the soundtrack of your ever-flowing life
It is the wind beneath your feet that makes you fly
It is the beautiful game that you choose to play
When you step out into the world to start your day
You show your face and take it in and scream and pray
You’re gonna win it for yourself and us today
It is the gold, the green, the yellow and the grey
The red and sweat and tears, the love you go. Hey!

CHORUS

Closer to the sky, closer, way up high, mais perto do ceu, mais perto do ceu

CHORUS”

“We as humans always like to think and believe something is gonna go a certain way.
It’s supposed to be like this but it never happens that way.
Fustration, disappointment, injuries, people thinking I can’t do it.
That was my journey.

You have these goals, you have these dreams, you think everything is going right then all of a sudden, your world comes crashing down…

After that moment, I actually came back a better player.
I was a smarter player, I missed the game, I was hungrier.
I got my chance and never left the field after that.

I look back at those moments; what the team did and what I did.
Those 16 minutes scoring 3 goals were really 13 years of blood sweat and tears.”

-Carli Lloyd on breaking her ankle (2010) & winning  FIFA Womens World Cup (2015) 

“Winning is overrated. The only time it is really important is in surgery and war”   Al McGuire

This is how it felt to lose the final of the football world cup, from Argentina. 
Watch out for the feels. 

Rant: after last night's game...

I love all of you guys out there but please stop with the jokes/comments comparing last night’s game go WWII/a blitzkrieg because to me as a german that is really offensive. It has been 70 years and we still cannot win a stupid football game without people referring to this? And also stop saying they should have stopped humiliating Brazil after goal nr 5, what else were they supposed to do, sit there and wait for the game to be over? They are paid to play the game and score so that’s what they did. If Brazil had won 7:1 nobody would be making inappropriate jokes or feel sorry for Germany…just saying. Could you all just be happy for us and acknowledge that we were the better team last night? *rant over*
