Fiorentina 3 Genoa 0

This evening we went with the Mount students to see Fiorentina play at the Artemio Franchi stadium here in Florence!  It was a great game!  The fans were loud and crazy!

We also got to see Senegal sensation Khouma Babacar play.  He is a seventeen-year old player who recently joined the Fiorentina Serie A team.  He was put into the game in the second half, and he scored his first goal!  That was exciting!

You can watch the highlights from the game we saw:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_mULrHeXjk

The Mount St. Mary’s Fiorentina fans: 

This is the concession stand!  It is a coffee bar of course!  No alcohol is served in the soccer stadiums! 

More Fiorentina fans:

The Genoa fans were sequestered in their own section.  They are bussed into the stadium and they enter in a different gate than the Fiorentina fans.  Note the barriers on either side of them!

The beautiful stadium with the mountains in the background.

It was a great time!
