France vs Pays-Bas

Fiacra and I went to a soccer game today. It was an under 19 game between France and Pays-Bas. We had seen posters for weeks before I figured out that Pays-Bas was the Netherlands and not the Basque region of Spain.

The game was fun. There was a big crowd and when they played the national anthems, it reminded me of Casablanca when they played La Marseillaise at Rick's.

The final score was 1-1. Both goals were scored on free kicks. The Dutch tied it with about two minutes left in the game and everyone up for the kick. A few of the players seemed quite good. Maybe they'll play for the senior teams in a few years.
