Brazil vs. Mexico

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Even if we jumped the fence, I wouldn't tell you. But we got in!

The loudness, happiness and excitement at the stadium was unbelievable. Never have I watched 60.342 anxious fans cheer like their lives were at stake.

Throughout the entire match there was an ear-smashing loudness at the stadium. The Brazilian stars and the Mexican contenders in the field had trouble communicating.
Luckily for us, Brazil had a short warm-up in the corner closest to where we were seated. Neymar and David Luiz hugged in hope of victory and advancement in the World Cup.

All the biggest stars of the Brazilian team where there - David Luiz, Tiago Silva, Dani Alves, Oscar, Neymar and the list goes on. There no other thought in your head in that moment. You're just sucking in every tiny detail, trying to realize what melting pot you've just landed in.

Unfortunately the score remained the same throughout the entire game; 0-0. And we didn't get to hear the maximum volume this stadium's fans could have produced. Thiago Silva was inches from determinering the game, yet the goalless fight was still an amazing experience. Watching Brazil play a World Cup  match on their home soil. What a time and place to be!

There many things you'll keep in your mind forever, and this was definitely one of those moments for me.
