Emotions That Every Italy Fan Endured This World Cup

From pride to grief to incredulous. The Azzurri took us through it all.

Pride

We are Italians. We have won 4 World Cups. We can do this.

Reassurance

The solid win against England showed Italy had a good handle on its strengths and could pull through when needed.

Comfort

(possibly a little too much) Okay, England down, Costa Rica and Uruguay up. As long as we show up with World Cup quality soccer, we can win.

Confusion

Did we just lose to Costa Rica? What just happened?

(Shaky) Confidence

That’s okay. We can bring it against Uruguay, at least a draw, and then worry about the round of 16.

Discomfort

The match against Uruguay has started, neither team seems like they have truly shown up and Balotelli is clutching his leg 5 minutes in….what’s going to happen?

(Slight) Aggravation

Okay, we can advance with a Uruguay draw, but come on Italia! We need an insurance goal or something.

Intrigue

Second half starts, Balotelli is out but let’s see what we can work up with added urgency.

(Legitimate) Concern

Okay Marchisio red-carded and Italy down a man for the last 35 minutes. Can they stay strong?

Worry

Shoot. Less than ten minutes to score and advance to the next round.

Shock

Did we really just get knocked out of the World Cup on the first round? Again?

Grief

Siamo italiani for crying out loud. The WORLD knows we’re good at soccer. How is this even happening?!

Disappointment

I guess this is it. We’ll just rebuild for the next four years.

Pride

Pride: We’re Italian. We may be exiting now but at least we’re doing it with class. The WORLD knows we’re good at soccer. And hey, at least we don’t bite people.

Until 2018
