Mexican Bloggers Support Their National Team

Samantha Martínez is blogging on Tarjeta Azul about the day-to-day at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. This time, she shares her passion for her country's national team, Mexico, and sums up the rivalry between this team and the local one, and shows her support for the Mexican crew:

¡Que se acaben los prejuicios! Apoyar y creer en el triunfo mexicano NO es patriotismo ciego, es optimismo. Mejor vivir así la vida, ver el vaso medio lleno. Recurriendo a los preceptos generales de autoestima y emprendimiento, el cuestionamiento principal es: Si tú no crees en ti mismo ¿Quién más lo va a hacer?. Creemos en ti México. ¡Vamos TRI! ¡A ganar!

No more prejudices! To support and believe in a Mexican victory is NOT blind patriotism, it's optimism. It's better to live this way, seeing the glass half full. By using these general self-esteem and endeavor precepts, the main question is: if you don't believe in yourself, who else will believe? We believe in you, Mexico. Come on, three stripes! Let's win!

Stay up-to-date with the World Cup via the author's blog and on Twitter.
