Salute you, Portuguese kid!

This kid, yesterday after the Portugal-France final match of Euro Cup 2016, he consoled the French fan while he was crying. It is so beautiful behavior, and I want to thank to this kid from here! He left his happiness in a moment and he thought to console the opposing team’s fan. And with this behavior, he showed me there is still hope for this planet!

I am losing my trust to humankind sometimes, but this scene caused to gain my trust back again. Maybe we don’t need too much thing to believe or trust, maybe we don’t need to look at the far away points. Here it is, this kid wrote just in 30 seconds how humanity should be, without the need to write hundreds pages of book about this.

Also, there were many scene we have seen in Euro 2016. If I started from last match, a moth have made a show. πŸ™‚ This moth landed to Ronaldo’s eyelash, while he was in suffer. After Ronaldo injured this moth showed itself, and maybe it wanted to be a super hero moth πŸ™‚ I have no idea why it made this show, but it was incredible!

I think one of the most interesting football player has been Ricardo Quaresma who is a football player in Besiktas team in Turkey and Portugal National Team at Euro Cup 1016. He is really good midfield player and forvet, but I am not sure how can he make many goals while he is playing in midfield, maybe he is kind of midfiled-forvet mix:) He showed himself with enjoyable play and the olive leaf at his head on final match of Euro 2016. It is being said this leaf is their national symbol. Maybe it is I don’t know, I only know Turkish’s and Greek’s olive:) But this leaf seemed very cool, no doubt!

When these were living into the football field at final match yesterday, French police was spraying the pepper gas to the French people out of the football field. After 6 pm the French police sprayed the pepper spray to the football fans at Fan Zone, because of they claimed that the enterence to the Fan Zone is forbidden after 6 pm.

If you don’t have money or you couldn’t find a ticket you can meet with pepper spray! This is another kind of rule of this system. And I don’t know have you ever tasted the pepper spray, my Earthling friends. It is painfull according to my experiences and, highly no recommended by me! πŸ™‚

If I turned back into Euro Cup, we have seen many ugly things besides the good things. Especially, the war between British and Russian fans in Marseille, or British fans who threw coins to the refugees children. Yes, we had seen at March, PSV Eindhoven fans had made similar humiliation to the Gypsy children at Champions League.

And very first time at their history , North Ireland joined to Euro Cup in this year. And their opposite team had been Ukraine for a match. While the match was playing on field, the Ukranian fascists were showed their Nazi tattoos on tribunes. And these tattoos weren’t be usefull again, because Ukraine defeated with 2 goals by North Ireland πŸ™‚

I started to my post with very beatiful kid. And I want to finish this post with very beatiful football team. This team is National Football Team of Iceland. They gave joy to all of us when they played their football game at Euro 2016. We have learnt and seen Iceland team in very first time. They were incredible! Even not only with their game, for example we learnt how we can call the whales? Yes πŸ™‚ While the football team was on field the fans of Iceland on tribunes chanted this way:

After these scenes, we learnt that this ovation was made by Icelanders to call the whales. Very interesting! The team of Iceland with their good football, they came to the quarterfinals of Euro 2016. This is very big success for a team which joins first time at Cup. And the Iceland people met their team with ceremony when the team turned back motherland, and of course with whale call πŸ™‚ Here it is:

At this video it is written “Viking war chant” as tittle. But I am very sure this chant meaning is firstly “to call whales”. Maybe this can be another mean or RT video makers made wrong.

Also, I’ve watched a video on youtube about Iceland football team, and a man was saying that: β€œWe don’t have an army, if we go the war, we would easily be defeated. This is kind of army for us.”

Icelanders, I think you should be proud of yourself, if you don’t have army. This meaning is you are very peaceful people. Please you build your army over the sport or other good things. We loved you with this kind of army! And, thank you to Icelanders, because you showed us the soul of Vikings πŸ™‚

  1. Reblogged this on Eyes on Europe & Middle East News and commented:
    This Portuguese kid comforting a crying French fan shows the true meaning of the beautiful game. This was captured on video when the kid walked over to a crying France supporter. Instead of being filled with acts of football hooliganism, news after the game was a lot less violent than other matches of the tournament, and a lot more sweet. In France it is estimated that the Portuguese diaspora up to 1 million five hundred people:

  2. I’m sorry I missed this yesterday, my friend! Thank you for this post!

    So much turmoil, but what I choose to remember is that beautiful, sweet Portuguese child comforting that Frenchman, and the man’s response, brought tears to my eyes, because this is how we should all care about and love each other! What a beautiful example this wonderful child and man have exhibited for the rest of us to follow!

    If we ever want peace and harmony in this world, then we must become, in this sense, as this child and man are in this clip. It sounds simplistic, and it is! But there is no complexity in basic empathy/compassion and love! All that is needed of any of us is to allow ourselves to be vulnerable and express it to each other!
