Red Devils frenzy

How to go from hell to heaven in 30 minutes? I guess the belgian football team also known as Red Devils has found the magic formula.

2-0 for Japan. No Belgian would have thought of this scenario starting the second half.

I'm coming back from the half-time break with my friends, and seeing the fans' faces, I think something strange happened. Is it a Belgian red card, a goal but I did not expect a score of 2-0 in favor of Japan.

A whole country begins to doubt. The team loses its football, the commentators lose their words.

Fans do not know what to do, they are lost between prayers or insults

 Anxious

I even heard from some who thought that the person running the billboard was wrong. What I like in this kind of situation is that all fans become coach. everyone looks for solutions and imagine substitutions to do.

Is it luck or talent or a mix of both? But a few minutes later... 2-1 ..... 2-2... Then I feel the whole country has begun to vibrate again.

People starts to believe in victory

Anguish and insults give way to songs and smiles, before the burst of joy at the end of the match with the ultimate action in the final seconds.

Final score! 2-3...

I imagine the same scenes of madness all over the country. People kiss, laugh and necessarily being in Belgium, the beer flows.

I can not forget Japanese fans who have experienced exactly other emotions.
