Teams: SPAIN, VENEZUELA, REAL MADRID
Venezuela vs. Peru
THIS is the moment of the truth. If you ask me, the great 2001-2004 generation of Venezuelan players is past their prime, but there is still that confidence in the team that Páez brought. This is THE chance to show what we have acieved in this sport with the whole Páez process. The bolivia game was aweful, but you can't help convincing me that there was not some government manipulation in hepling the bolivians (the quiet, almost dead crowd, the penalty that was not called, the excessively friendly atmosphere between the players, eva sitting next to the big monkey, etc.). Tomorrow (today, it's past midnight) we'll see if we have a future in building the football scenario in the years to follow.
