Crespo scores with a tap-in from a simple cross.
sloppy defending from England.

Ferdinand failed to intercept when he should have....

England's defence has been shocking so far.

Beckham's playing well.

Bridge isn't doing well. King is starting to intercept a lot and have been winning headers in the middle of the park.

Becks is playing a free-role, resulting to only one cross on the right.
Defence is not up to standard. Despite all that you have to say England looks pretty dangerous on the break.

Argentina on the other hand have been superb in attack.

Robinson has been England best player so far. has blocked about 3-5 shots.

Entertaining first half both teams with a fair share of chances, Robinson made three great saves at the start. Hopefully the second half will be just as good.

Once England has Cole and Neville back they'll be much better.

yeah, Young isn't NT material.

great game so far... unfortunately, i'm watching it on an argentinian channel (6) the commentators are incredibly biased.

What channel is it? Does it have Closs+Niembro?:o

Interesting match so far, good match of Ayala and Demichellis, good to see that Maxi Rodríguez isn't screwing up though that should be the place of Lucho, Zanetti or Santana. The english aren't marking Riquelme which could be painful for them. Samuel seems to be a bit asleep but he's not doing that bad. I still believe however that Coloccini or Milito should be in Sorin and Zanetti don't do too much for the defense(i guess Rooney's goal screw up on defense was cause of that).

Maybe we'll see some minutes of Cruz, Aimar and Santana/Lucho.

Now the germans won't be able to call up Demichellis.:)

About the Verón matter, he's one that doesn't agree about Sorin being captain of the national team.:o

King is supposed to stifle and shut down Riquelme. hope to see more of that in the second half. both sides seem to want to win a lot. what do you guys think? which team has a better chance to win the world cup?

If England lose Rooney or Beckham through injury they'll be a much lesser side.

Argentina on the other hand seem to have a stronger bench. Hey argentina fans, how is Argentina's defensive substitutes?

it's Fox Sports LA, but neither of them (Closs or Niembro) are commenting. There is this guy who 'sings' the goals (Pacini??) and i think the other is Walter Queijeiro. They're broadcasting the match for all Latin America... except Argentina. :rolleyes:

Defensive, hmm. Argentina right now has Coloccini and G. Milito, maybe i'm forgetting someone.

In England, ii don't really like that Young guy doesn't seem to be doing too much, and Beckham is speedy but he just seems to throw long balls most of the time.

Bridge is struggling a bit due to lack match fitness.Yup,and King is starting to get a grip in midfield now too.Becks has been great ,i counted at least 5 killer crosses and what a header down to Waynes foot for the equaliser?
Its been a great game so far with almost nil playacting,but i suspect Sorin is trying to help Luke Young earn a second yellow :rolleyes:
Anyway ,its a great game to watch.Dont know why people were dissing Maxi Rodrigues earlier.I think he has been excellent.So has Riquelme,very nice footwork.
Rooney is so dangerous and looks to score whenever he gets the ball.Our close passing is looking good,Rio needs to wake up,Gerrard is playing well,so is Frank.As long as it stays "clean",the second half should be a cracker too.

For us at least throwing long balls randomly doesn't seem like a show offf of skill.

Ratón 2-1.(6)

5th goal of Ayala in over 100 matches for the national team. Why do Ayala and Sorin always end up inside the keep when they score?:o

Argentina scores from a beautiful crafty set-piece. Riquelme pretends to shoot. instead he lifts a ball toward the right where a defenders heads it in.

masterful execution. good stuff.
