What a match! Every single person with orange-coloured blood running through his/her veins must have been excited with the Dutch performance against Brazil. At Lima’s Plaza de Armas, about 25 Dutch fans couldn’t believe they were watching a historic game. At 10:45 am local time, the tension transformed into an orange party.
Like almost every capital city on the planet, Lima organizes a FIFA licensed Fan Fest in its city centre. The historical Plaza de Armas, with its huge cathedral and large government buildings in colonial style, is the perfect place to set up a huge screen and enjoy the World Cup. Peruvian television, fans from the competing countries, and thousands of football crazy locals gathered to watch The Netherlands beat Brazil.
The Brazilian fans (about as many as the Dutch) were disappointed, but they took the loss in a fair way. After the final whistle both groups enjoyed the party together. The most heard remark: ‘Where are the cervezas?’
