Japan vs Morocco Olympic Football @ St. James’ Park

Monday, 30th July, 2012

I have already blogged about the ticketing shambles, so I will put that away now and talk about the first game, Morocco vs Japan 😀

 First of all when we went into the ground there were a few Moroccans having lots of fun, creating a great atmosphere and making lots of noise, dancing around, it was great 😀 Their fans were really good, making a carnival party type of atmosphere.

We walking into the ground and the coach had just pulled up, the Moroccan team were getting off it so I got a few pics of that. I got into the ground and saw that a few of the players were checking out the stadium, one being interviewed for something which was cool.

The game started and it was not the best game of football I have seen. Morocco had the best of the chances in both the first and second half, but then Japan created a few chances of their own. Japan finally scored, after around 80 minutes, and lead 1-0. I was sitting next to lots of the Japan fans (there were more Japan fans than Morocco, Spain and Honduras combined!) and they went crazy 😀 They were good fans, they had banners all around the stadium, and they did outnumber all the other fans combined, and had some rather odd chanting :mrgreen:

Morocco tried everything to score but couldn’t, and Japan went on to win the game 1-0 and they have qualified for the quarter finals. At the end of the game the Japan players came over to the crowd and thanked them, that was pretty cool 🙂

Here are some of the pictures from the game.
