Here’s to Uruguay !

I  love the spirit of the Uraguauy soccer team,  no quit,

For Uruguay Forlan celebrated his fourth goal of the tournament with “a suave wave of his arm” as reported by TSN

Forlan left in the 85th minute

which seemed like a glaring miscalculation after Uruguay brought it to 3-2 with about three minutes and the referee adding minutes and seconds to the clock as if he didn’t want to see it end either…

After the match Coach Oscar Tabarez said that his star player was hurt.

“From minute one he had a problem,” Tabarez said. “I’m not dumb enough to take him out at 3-1 when the match wasn’t lost. He was injured and could not continue.”

The statement sounds a bit elaborate but in any case Forlan was a tiger out there with such steely concentration and almost joyous determination.

Here’s to Uruguay -what a great finale to their match with the Netherlands – no quit
