2010/2011 UEFA Europa League Final is Portuguese

Before Carnation Revolution, 25 April 1974, to say that Portugal was the country of the “3 F’s” - fado, football and Fátima (religion) was a common thing to say. The combination of these three elements would be enough to keep the Portuguese happy. I really can’t say.I was too young then. But, well, I have already posted about fado and Fátima. So I guess a post on football is missing! I had the perfect excuse to bring the match into this Portuguese blog corner today. Not sure if I’ll be happier afterwards, thow!
2010/2011 UEFA Europa League Final is tomorrow in Dublin, Ireland. It will be a unique final with two Portuguese football teams on the field. FC Porto eliminated Villarreal 7-4 and will meet Braga in the Europa League final. Dublin will host the first ever all-Portuguese European final. The Portuguese champions FC Porto are favored in the final, having already beaten Braga twice this season. I am not a football enthusiast anymore but once I watched many FC Porto’s games. This team is the best Portuguese football team of the moment. But SC Braga is also showing interesting football and I bet Dublin will be enjoying a great match.
