then we lost to Dutch 0:3 and there was nobody to meet the team in the airport when it returned home
The fact is- positive comments would pour in for a day or two, maybe a week. Negative ones will be dragged out for the whole season or maybe even the whole career of a player.
Really sounds like Latvian fans gets carried away too fast and then are overwhelmed by disappointment which then leads to frustration over the players disability to produce miracles every time!
That people didn't cheer for the Latvian team after Euro2004 comes a real shock to me. It is one of the biggest surprises in Euro history that they even qualified and everyone expected them to be massacred and they actually scored a goal and got a point.
You could wait an entire lifetime and never see Latvia qualify again.
So is Verpakovskis a hero for scoring in the Euro2004 or is it as you say there is often a fanbased long-time disappointment after 1-2 day of euphoria???
