JAKARTA – The excitement is already boiling over before things have even begun.
Andrea Stramaccioni‘s team will arrive in Indonesia tomorrow, but Jakarta has
already become blue and black, starting with the airport.
There seemed to be a small slice of the Curva Nord inside Soekarno-Hatta
Airport in Jakarta this morning (still the middle of the night in Italy with
the 5-hour time difference) awaiting the arrival of the first Nerazzurri
delegation that preceded the team by a day.
There were no players in tow but there were stadium chants just the same, and
the nearly 400 Indonesian fans in attendance were wearing the team colours and
going as wild as possible. From the sea of team shirts and flags there came a
burst of applause upon recognition of Roberto Scarpini, the voice of Inter
voice that is present match after match, celebration after celebration.
At this point the numbers are expected to multiply considerably for the arrival of the
team, as are the chants, which the fans have already shown they know how to
sing perfectly – and at maximum volume. It’s sign of love for Inter at 360°,
beyond any latitude, longitude or border.
