We don t win the Cup, just the second place, let´s smile as did these boys the moment they noticed me taken some photos, they run towards where I was, got up the grille and began to sing
Yesterday we lost the Football World Cup finishing second, dream is over till Russia 2018
Over also this special time, when most countries in the world concentrated on the games, forgot as I said in my first post, problems and quarrels about, gender, age, race, social standing, nationality, and political affiliation
Photo is not good because the boys sang and keep moving, they show in that way the sentiments and significance the game has from the very beginning age
I want to thanks for supporting Argentina team:
Also interesting comments from:
They all show the spirit of TE community

Happy faces of the kids few days before the grand-finale, but the ball is round - and maybe better win in years to come.
Nicely combined the blue on green, charming.
*** Frankly, I always say "may the best team win" and supporting only Israeli teams, on ground, air and sea...
Thanks for the gesture.

To be positive, you won the second place, and you should be proud, so many countries would like to be there - France I suppose too!-
That's why the fans are still smiling, wearing the national football Tshirt.

This is a good photo even though the boys kept moving a bit. To capture their movements and joy and spontaneity is much more important than perfect sharpness.
To get the silver medals in the World Cup is not bad. It's been 56 years since that happened to my country (and it will probably never happen again), but I still remember the joy and pride I felt as a little kid. And after all, this year Germany was really the best side.

The greatest show on earth is over and as I followed it on TV over the past month I got the feeling that the togetherness of the entire world that the football world cup signifies is much bigger than the performance on the field on a given day that decides the eventual winner or runners up.
You picture is a beautiful and sensitive portrayal of these children with all their innocence and high spirits.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

Ciao Maria, e' mancata solo un po' di fortuna, avreste meritato di vincere, speriamo la prossima finale sia Argentina - Italia, grazie della bella foto, piena di allegria, brava, ciao Silvio

well, i have to be honest - I'm not a football fan.
As a Canadian we don't really have any sort of passion for the sport. Our passion is hockey.
I may not enjoy football, but i respect the athletes as they have tremendous skill and stamina.
this is a fun photo for sure. the kids have a playful nature to them, an innocence - something we as adults could certainly learn from :)
An awesome showing from Argentina, I don't think many people picked them to go as far as they did.

Congratulations for a good game footballers.... run out of luck.
It is a beautiful scene in the photograph.
mohammad_H (9566) 2014-07-14 12:23
Congratulations, World Cup, and won, the second

Losing game, coach Sabya, I was a footballer, football and understand
I'm from Argentina upset loss, but congratulations to Germany to play nice

Very interesting TE job done !
Quite actual and nice. Hopefully those cute boys shall overcome the trouble as soon as possible !
TFS and best regards
williewhistler (14999) 2014-07-14 13:06
the happy smiles on the boys faces more than make up for any disappointment at losing the football final, may be next time in Russia...
Odd numbers seem to work best in photographs and these five are nicely balanced here.
Kind regards Les.

si dice "gloria ai vincitori e onore ai vinti", perché non bisogna mai dimenticare che a giocarsi una finale ci sono sempre due squadre, mentre le altre....
Questi ragazzini avranno molto tempo per poter vedere i loro campioni vincere e, magari, vincere loro stessi.
Bella foto, allegra, piena di vita.
jmdias (57537) 2014-07-14 17:46
bonita foto con la alegria de los niños y sus camisetas de argentina. hoy he visto un niño con una bicicleta y la bandera del brasil. He dicho a mis colegas de trabajo: el aún tiene amor por el brasil despues de todo. haha.
si, es una lástima que argentina no tenga obtenido una Victoria despues de estar tan cerca de ella.

Awww Miss Maria, I thought about you many times during the match, wondering what the range of emotions must have been like throughout the country. There is absolutely no shame finishing second in a World Cup final...they may not have won the top spot, but they played hard and did better than every other team except one.
A wonderful picture to post in support of fandom and a love for the game, these young men can still smile proudly of what their countrymen have achieved. Technical details matter not, this is all about the happiness to have been part of something so grand, and with such youthful exuberance. It's neat that these boys wanted to become so much a part of your photo that they've jumped on the fence. On to 2018! Enjoy the new day. Take good care mi amiga. Thanks for the mention in your notes.
Cheers from the U.S.,
danos (88883) 2014-07-15 3:15
very nice the view of these fans of the National team of Argentina as wearing the Natioanl colours and play with this way in font of your lens.
I saw the game,i was with Agentina as a lot of Greeks,but unfotunately the cup went to Germany...
photoray (12968) 2014-07-15 8:43
Good candid of the young lads in their blue white stripped jerseys. Winning is not everything. I was very happy to play football on a little league team and we only won one game.
thanks for sharing,
Cricri (109661) 2014-07-15 12:02
Hola mon amie Maria
Quel match! tressant et triste, j'ai regardée le match avec mon compagnon, me regardait car il savait que je soutenais l'Argentine, il sais aussi mon amitié pour toi, puis viens la triste finale, et moi je ne sourit pas.....lui me dit mauvaise perdante :-), oh je sais que ce n'est qu'un jeu....pas de souci je serais a tes côtés en 2018 :-))
Une belle image de ce groupe d'enfant affichant de beaux sourires...
ici il est 21h, il fait doux, je pense que je serais vite dans mon lit, j'ai trop bouger aujourd'hui :-)
Waylim (25368) 2014-07-15 18:15
I won't be crying for Argentina. I did cry for Brazil though.
Second place in the world is really fantastic. Love to see the joy on this boys's faces and I can see the love for the sport and the color of blue and white show the love for Argentina.
baclama (18279) 2014-07-16 7:02
voila des perdants qui gardent la joie de jouer!!!
en avant pour 2018!!
ourania (34433) 2014-07-16 13:26
Hola Maria querida,
I'm enjoying this photo very much, I love the spontaneity, interaction, closeness and joy of the children. I'm sure they've "forgiven" the players of Argentina who surely did their best to win. The words "just the second place" in your note made me smile, second is a place many teams only dream of, Argentina belongs to an exclusive group of prospective champions. The children, however, enjoy their little world of neighbourhood and school teams just as much, I'm sure their games are always passionate and interesting. Lovely composition, colours and contact. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
bukitgolfb301 (37036) 2014-07-16 23:29
Hi Ola dear Maria, how are you?
Sorry for no reaction for so long time as crazy busy.
Quite regrettagble for FIFA but I am sure that they did thier best by all means. I watched almost of all games via TV. I can share with your country's fever trhough your nice snap shot as suych.
All the best and have a good day! Takero from Tokyo
abmdsudi (44964) 2014-07-18 16:18
They are the faithful! Great you have a knack of capturing candid faces! Intriguingly good colourful shot with lovely catch light. I liked the way the kids filled the frame in this made almost a human abstract pattern with the late comer adds a nice effect too. Great timing and superbly captured, TFS
COSTANTINO (57903) 2014-07-19 13:15
Hello dear friend
at first congratulations for the wonderful
football world cup of your team
you should be pround of your team

I liked this capture indeed

Kielia (23993) 2014-07-20 6:17
I loved reading your excellent notes, it is a very good contribution - in every sense - to this site on the occasion of this for Argentina sad event. The accompanying image is very nice. So let’s hope for Argentina winning the World Cup in Russia in 2018!
mcmtanyel (14939) 2014-07-20 21:42
Second place is not as prestigious as first, but it sure is better than third! I remember the one time Turkey came in third, the convoy for the team covered a distance that usually takes 45 minutes in 12 hours! Their flight landed early in the morning, it was late at night when they reached Taksim Square. I was visiting Mom at the time.
The Argentinean team must have had a jubilant welcome back party, they deserved it.
ChrisJ (101782) 2014-07-23 3:55
Argentina did well. Within striking distance of first place next time! Good sharpness and aI like the wide angled panoramic crop. The blue uniforms contrast well against the yellow green grass in the bg. Good to have 1 boy at right breaking the repetitive pattern. Tfs!
