Woooooooo hoooooooo!!!!!!

Chile kills Nigeria 4-1 with goals by Contreras, Zamorano, Navia and Tello and they move on to Semi-Finals.

It was great! I went to a Chilean restaurant with a few friends here in Los Angeles to watch the game, I payed $15 dollars but it didnt matter beacuse it was full of Chileans singing and cheering their team on. Everyone jumped off their seats when Chile scored first and we did the same after Chile's 2nd goal (which was very soon after the 1st) It was like being in Australia live. The game started at 2 AM PST 8 PM Australia Time, but it didnt matter. Everything was going swell up until we got the news that Brazil had tied their game 1-1 on injury time, it was sort of a bitter sweet victory, so I though. I get in the car, turn on the radio and tune in to hear that Brazil was very close to scoring and win. I get home tune in again (around 4 AM PST) and I hear that cameroon was playing with 9 players (they had 2 ejections) but after a counter attack on the 22nd minute of extra time Cameroon scores and wins the game. That made my night.

Chile will play against Cameroon in the semis (not Brazil ) and they will probably win. I'll be there at 2 AM cheering and singing Chile on to a victory!

I thought nothing could get better but now I hear on my radio that the US beat Japan on penalties 5-4 (2-2 on after OT)

I love the Olympics!!!!1

PS- Spain beat Italy 1-0

Semis

Tuesday 8 PM (australia time) (2 AM Los Angeles time)

Chile vs Cameroon

Spain vs USA

Well here is our chance to finally win a gold medal!!!! And wouldn't it just be great if we have 1 gold medal in our history and it being in the soccer

I think that Cameroon wont really test us when we are in our home ground Melbourne!! The atmosphere is unbelievable there!! And believe me Loco nomatter how good your restaurant was it cant be as good of the MCG full of Chileas

I was unfortunately watching Spain vs Italy since I live in Syndey!! But at least Chile will play one last game in Sydney

FORZALAZIO!

The game will not be shown on NBC nor ABC and much less ESPN. NBC only cares about the games that the US plays in and not any other wether is a medal game or not. The only way to see the game is if you can find a Chilean (lationo) restaurant or sportsbar over there in Nebraska (which I doubt there are any). Your second option is to listen to the game on the radio, "Radio Unica" will broadcast the Chile/Camerron game at 5AM EST/2AM PST.

Hurrah for Paquador!
