On Monday, March 12th, Rebecca, Jen and I went to the Arsenal vs. Newcastle football match. This was all of our first times going to a real game.
We met Jen at her flat near the Angel Underground Station and set out on foot. After about 45 minutes, we arrived at the newly built Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal Football Club. We were running a bit late so we rushed to the upper concourse and grabbed a hotdog and beer only to find out we couldn’t take them into the stands. So we chugged back our drinks and found our seats.
In the first half, Newcastle got on the board first, but Arsenal answered back in 30 seconds with a goal of their own. The rest of the match was well played, but it seemed the match would come to a 1-1 tie. Arsenal surprised everyone by scoring in the 5th minute of injury time and the stadium went wild. The home team would win it 2-1. It was a great night and the atmosphere was amazing.
