Guys, we did it!! Can you believe it?!
I watched the whole thing at Starbucks via cell phone and left on cloud nine pumping fists.
This was the breakthrough game we needed that I talked about, a huge monentum-shifter. It's been 65 years since we last beat a WC silver-medalist team. I knew Croatia was on a down-shift after Azerbajan and could be beat. Good ol' Budapest is regaining its good reputation as a tough venue. The fans were estastic. It was a "great day!".
Szalai came through again, that's 5 goals in 5 games for our handsome cavalier colossus, Mr. Consistency delivered - the day, the week, the month is right as rain when our golden boy scores. Dzsudzsak delivered a top performance by not deep crossing like I strongly advocated otherwise we would have lost. Congratulations on his well-earned 100th appearance and two big assists.
Guys, we just broke open our group, it's wide open now, our path is wide open and its golden if we can win with max effort again against Azerbajan. Good days ahead if we can clinch that win. July, here we come with a full head of steam. Bravo once more!
Oh, uhmm Arpad, always watch the big games in Budapest. Our surprising team is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. 😉
