Football could be so beautiful

It reminded us earlier, at the time when a game abroad, in any city and a country in which we do not understand the language. We sat in a tram, more and more people pushed their way in at every stop, cooped up we were, the speaker has not been announced something that we understood, and suddenly the train was at a standstill, not where we thought, but all went out. To see from a stadium is nothing, it remained as the only possibility, the other chasing her.

So it was last Thursday. In Zurich, in the 2 Tram, this should bring us to the Letzigrund, it is one hour prior to the start of the game. Soon comes the announcement that the Tram ride up to the lime of width, hardly any in this Tram understands it, it is practically speaking only Italian, and there are many who do not live in Zurigo are, apparently, "Napule" call. "E adesso?" one of them asks, but because out on the road, many run in the same direction, you do too, somewhere must be the stadium.

the walk begins, more and more, soon hundreds, some sing it children, women, peaceful, all of them are, in the now cold night, after it was during the day such as spring. Then it will be brighter, the spotlights of the stadium, and the crowds even bigger, some are obviously been here longer, not for the first beer, but it is still peaceful. Many police officers standing around, heavily armed, with anything, guns, you see, shields in front of the body. And also a fearsome armored cars, water cannons, and others.

laughing, The cops, are friendly, will give you the information you are numbered, as the players take pictures later, here are the 15, the 21, you. In front of me, running a little sluggish speed is known to me, it Köbi is Kuhn, and later on in the mid-term, attention is drawn to an exhibition of him, "75 years of Kuhn". From the speakers inside, you can hear out that you should come on the next Saturday, the FCZ women then play against Yverdon.

I think: What a beautiful experience it could be soccer in Zurich, if 24’000 to come, all are so fond of, expectation, happy and smiling, even those who seem to need to be here, to intervention, to be ready for different.

It is an Illusion. In the stadium, on the phone, there are push messages: Hooligans riot in Zurich, riots, Unconscious on the floor, Masked beat. Where we walked, on the Badenerstrasse. (
