Recently, lots of people have had weddings! Mariam was one of them... so here is my drawing of here in her dress.
|Mariam Wedding Dress|
|Tickets to watch Olympic Football!|
|Arriving in Cardiff Central Train Station.|
|The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff!|
|The Olympic Logo "London 2012" on the outside of the Stadium.|
|Here I am ready to support Team GB! |
Go Great Britain!
We got to the stadum early and watched it fill up with people.
|Up on the Big screen Before the Start of the first football match|
- between Mexico and Switzerland
|Here is Switzerland warming up for the match.|
|Start of the Match.|
(Cool Mexican hat warn by the man in the row in front of us)
|The end of a really good game although Mexico dominated for the most part.|
|This is the one that most people in the stadium came to see. |
It is great that there was so much support for the home team.
The stadium was completely packed and everyone was having a fab time!
As the start drew closer the atmosphere began to build even more!
|GB supporters with their Union Jack flags filling the stadium |
back up after the break between the two matches.
|GB Team warming up!|
|Olympic Mascot "Inspiring a Generation" |
This huge banner was brought out along with giant footballs
that bounced around the stadium while the teams warmed up.
|The Referees leading the teams out onto the pitch as seen on the big screen|
Our seats were on the side where the teams came out.
That meant that we had to look up at the screen to see their entrance.
The Japanese referees were so funny with their warm-ups on the pitch.
They were in time with the music - the song playing had the line "I'm sexy and I know it..".
The warm-up at that point consisted of ... skip, skip, high kick... repeat.
|The line-up for the national anthems of Uruguay and Great Britain.|
"God save the Queen..."
|Shaking hands before kick-off|
|Match Kick off! |
Great Britain in the Dark Blue (with red and white)
and Uruguay in the White (with light blue shorts)
| Action Shot - an attempt for GB at a goal. Team GB had most |
of the possession throughout the match and had a number of attempts on goal.
|Just before Half Time GB scored! |
When I say just before I mean in the extra minute of stoppage
time that was added to the end of the first half!
It was so exciting and it seemed like the whole stadium was cheering!
|Second Half - still 1-0 to GB|
There was an announcement which stated that the stadium was sold out!
With around 69,000 spectators at the Millennium Stadium.
|The Match finished with Great Britain victorious! |
That goal in the first half has made them the group winners!
Great Britain has made it into the semi-finals and has to face South Korea on Saturday.
|Off home! The crowds had a really good atmosphere and everyone seemed |
happy about Great Britain's Win! It is so great to have the Olympics in Britain
and have the home crowd here to cheer our athletes on.
