Chievo has made it! Although the match was rather lazy, both teams managed to bring home 1 point, having finished 0-0. In my post yesterday I wrote that today Chievo would have played the last match of the season. I wasn't very precise: there is still one more match to play but this was the last one "at home" in Verona and the foundamental one. In fact, with today's result Chievo has secured its place in the top division!!!
Once again Chievo raised from the ashes (the bad beginning of the championship) playing spectacularly against the top teams. Sergio Pellissier, was among the leading athlets of the year and was recently summoned to be part of the National Italian Team!!! The dream goes on!
It was incredibly hot today, about 35°C, I was sweating in the shaded part of the Stadium!
I felt so proud and almost moved when the players took off their yellow shirts and put on a plain white tshirt with a big "A" on their chest. They hold hands and ran towards the supporters waving, smiling and shouting their joy.
Tonight, the team and a wide number of veronesi will celebrate!
