After a difficult time for our national team in the local media, our start in the 19th Gulf Cup has been reasonable.  I’m getting back into a football mood – which is more than I can say for the crowds in Muscat.  Why are there so many empty seats?

Think football and a name familiar to many appears in front of you… in fluorescent yellow. HRH Pele. The above is an old photograph from Brazil’s visit to Kuwait in 2006.  We didn’t meet him, but he spoke briefly to the crowds.

I wish our national team the best for the rest of the competition.  Think BLUE everyone.

 

It was Ramadan and we were fasting but it was one of the best sporting events I attended in Kuwait. I took my brother and cousin and the evening was wonderful. Good atmosphere, nice weather, some good football (great football by Brazil) and we got to see Pele.

I took many photos – mostly bad because I had no tripod. This was one of my lucky shots and I’m really pleased I got it.
