Walking around downtown Halifax on a Wednesday at 10:15 AM, the last thing you expect to see is a line of red Spanish jerseys getting ready to watch the World Cup game between Spain and Switzerland.
While sitting in front of the huge big screen at Gatsbys on Spring Garden, the optimism amongst the Spanish supporters was sky high. Spain are the favorites to win the World Cup. They have their best National Team ever and the best team on paper in the tournament; playing against a Swiss side whom they have never lost to.
Throughout the game, you could feel the frustration from the Spanish contingent. Spain were thoroughly dominating the game while not being able to score. Loud yelling (mostly in Spanish) and head shaking overpowered the surround sound system in the pub (wow... This is great advertising for Gatsbys isn't it?).
Spain had 20 shots, Switzerland had 7. Spain had 66% possession, Switzerland had 34%. The match ended 1-0 in favor of Switzerland.
A picture paints a thousand words.
