Final duel: Kolkata, crazy about football, separates from Argentina and Brazil | Calcutta News



Calcutta: A mouth-watering dish awaits football fans this Sunday with two of the city’s favorite teams facing off in the Copa America final, sparking a frenzy and dividing the city into two camps, each rooting passionately for its teams favorite.
As Brazil takes on Argentina it will be Messi’s magic against Neymer’s glow on display and Kolkata could not have hoped for a more exciting start to a Sunday – the game starts at 5.30am – with the final of the Euro which should be played later in the night. .
The city generally splits in half whenever these sides meet, and this time will be no different. Social media is already buzzing and clubs – despite Covid and the odd hour of the game – have promised to make it a show. Businessman Uttam Saha, founder of Argentina Football Fans Club, promises to decorate his patio with Argentinian flags and bake special cakes for breakfast. “It should be the perfect place for a little party when Argentina lifts the Cup,” he said. Saha has said he would have loved to watch the game on the big screen in Ganguly Bagan, but Covid’s restrictions will mean he will have to be careful. “I have a room at home and a large television. About 20 of us will be watching the game early in the morning. Face masks and social distancing, however, will be essential, ”he said.
Saha is hoping that this time Argentina can turn the tide on Brazil, who beat them in their last Copa duel in 2019.
Accountant Sayantan Majumdar – a die-hard fan of Brazil – has asked all his loyal friends to introduce themselves to the Behala Navodaya club. They will wear the colors of Brazil while watching the game. “There can’t be a bigger clash than this to welcome football at its best,” he said. He plans to install Brazilian flags in the neighborhood, hoping the rain gods will have a little mercy. “Brazil are a better unit and I’m confident. I saw Argentina struggling in the semi-finals and our coach Tete must have seen their weaknesses. I plan to celebrate with a few close friends back home after our victory. Of course, I’ll need a little nap before getting ready for the euro final on the night, ”said Majumdar. For him, seeing Messi win the Copa crown in Brazil will be the “ultimate nightmare”.
While Brazil has won the title 9 times, Argentina leads the race with 14. The Facebook groups – Brazil Fans of Kolkata and Argentina Fans Club Kolkata – invite discussions on the strengths and weaknesses of the teams. “You can’t love your team unless you discuss it to the point,” said a supporter of a Brazilian group. “We want a good Latin American duel. These are the matches that we are looking for to create magic, ”said Nikhil Sacheva, a student.
