“It does not matter that we did not qualify.
What matters is our team inspired us all.
What matters is they gave us hope.
It does not matter that we were alone….
because now we are together,
What started as a game …
is becoming something more.
What matters is what we are creating…
…the infrastructure and
our common future.
It does not matter that we did not qualify.
What matter is that we host the best
World Cup ever.
Let’s not stop now.
We have opened our hearts to each other …
Now let’s open them to the world.
- choose another country to support
- paint your face for that team
- fill the fan parks
- help a tourist
- say hello to new people
- fly the flags even higher, and
- be proud of our country.
This is our chance.
Let’s keep it going.
