The End Of Our Olympics Journey
I don’t really know what to write.
Actually I don’t want to write anything, but I have decided that, if anything, writing this journal will be therapeutic for me.
There isn’t much I can say about the game except that we worked our butts off, and left everything we had out on the field. The United States played better than we did on the night, and frankly, they deserved the win.
Of course, this does not make the pain of losing the match any easier. When the final whistle blew most of us fell to the floor and stayed there for a long time, totally exhausted, but also shattered, We really, REALLY wanted that win, and we honestly believed that this would finally be the day when we took it to the States and beat them.
