Go Portugal! Vai Portugal! May the força be with you (and Germany too)

In a few hours Portugal will face Germany in their opening match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. So what better time is there to sing along and dance to the official anthem of support for Portugal in the World Cup, Vai Portugal sung by Kika. Is it a winner? Sim!

I don’t know anything about Kika but I found a website page in Portuguese which has some information about the song.

As you can probably guess, I am very fond of Portugal and the Portuguese, their language, their food, their hospitality, their home-grown wines etc etc. But I have a little conflict of interest with this match. You see, when all the World Cup teams were put into a hat and we made the office draw, guess which team Bernardo drew? Yes, Germany. So, ahem, Go Germany Go! Vai Alemanha!

Maybe a draw would be the best outcome.

While we are talking international relations, here is another Kika song I found. It’s in English, featuring Andreas Wijk, a Swedish dude. Go Sweden!
