Humans of Belgium and Match-day 1

The Belgian Red Devils will compete for the first time in the World Cup this afternoon at 6 pm Belgian time.   I ran into these guys a few minutes after 1 pm  and asked them what they were up to.
 "....on their way to grab a sandwich for lunch and then on to the big screens which are all over the city ..."
Could it be that schools closed down the afternoon of the first game? I doubt it.

  1. I think they have exams and they are free in the afternoon to study.

    1. ah, of course, that is the answer.
      but , under those circumstances, aren't they supposed to study for tomorrow's exam?

  2. They should live in Sweden, all schools are closed for the summer, but then again we didn't qualify for the World Cup. Good luck against Algeria.
