116 Days: Free Nelson Mandela


I remember listening to this song way back in the eighties and having limited information relating to all things South African (Days before the Internet). Now some 30 years later I’m travelling to South Africa and Nelson Mandela is free.

South Africa is a different country then the eighties and like everything in my life it’s futbol that takes me to all these countries around the world.

I have seen Uruguay in World Cup Qualifiers, now I’ll see Uruguay at a World Cup, next to see Uruguay at a Copa America. The only thing that can top all this is for Uruguay to become World Champion.

Just like someone believed that Mandela would be free, I believe Uruguay will be World Champions.
