France-Belgium.

A few days ago BBFF (Belgian/Beijing BFF) texted me “I promise if France win I’ll forgive you” I replied not IF but WHEN 😉

No fancy big screen… just daughter, myself, a computer (no tv in our summer house) and a French beer for good luck. See you in the finale. Maybe we can replicate 1998 (and hopefully not 2006)

When you are a bit confused by the 2 TV screens at the bar and realize after a while you were not watching the football game (Australia-France) on the left but the rugby game (also Australia but against Ireland) on the right. 🙄

I heard screaming… I think I recognized screams of joy: France won against Nigeria. See you in 1/4 final now.

I’m not following the Football World Cup but one cannot go on Facebook and not see the comments.

Apparently France played and won yesterday against Switzerland (5:2) which reminded me the first time I came upon the translation of cheering for a team (back in 2008 during the Beijing Olympic Games).

Version Originale:

Allez la France, Allez la France

Translated in English:

Go France Go, Go France Go

Meanwhile in China

加油法国 (Jia Yuo FaGuo) which translated literally mean “Add Oil France”.

Yep totally lost in translation 😉
