WCQ : Argentina v. Brasil {P & R}


Starting XI
This is the point, Argentina are a TEAM, Brazil more often than not play like individuals..Usually this is enough to win, but not this time.

Very impressed with Argentina, Especially the first half..Congrats

We apologize for keeping the yellow too long
Yellow Card
I have a lot more respect for Argentina after this result. At first I thought that they were a fallen power but now I realize that they are very much a contender to Brazil and England.

Although that Ecuador (hammered by Colombia a few days later) result is still puzzling......... :confused:

I'm a brazilian who likes England and their football... but it's not like they're a level above the other euro countries... I'd say England is in the same level as the Czechs, Portugal and Holland, and that's being optimistic...


Senior Squad
Argentine is not a fallen power IMO...
Its true that the last world cup was a step back for us...

But last year was a display of argentine power...

1st place in the Panamericano U-23
Golden Medal in Athens (U-23)
And 2nd place in the Copa America (After the penalty shootout)
First World champion qualyfied for the world cup 2006...

And we have a lot of great young players: Lux, Coloccini, Milito, Mascherano, Lucho Gonzalez, Messi, Tevez, Saviola, Cavenaghi, Delgado, and a lot more...

We only need a little more luck in the next world cup...

Anyway, just let the other teams be favourites for winning the wolrd cup...we will go quietly...


Team Captain
just watched the match...

:Bow: Riquelme, holy **** what a player

Barcelona are morons, why would they let him (AND Saviola) go? :|


El Merengue Argentino
Yeah, he is so calm with the ball at his feet, it's amazing.

Wasn't that backheel out of the air amazing right before he scoredhis wonder goal (Y) :jap:

Starting XI
Riquelme is awesome... when he was at Boca he had the best performance I've seen from a player against Palmeiras in the libertadores.. after he moved to spain I haven't seen much of him though... it's pretty obvious he still is a great player

...just watched the game today. :nape:


- Riquelme's goal = the backheel touch + the control to push R.Junior to one side + his left-footed blast...and catches Dida going the wrong way. :Bow:

- Why is R.Junior still being called up? :rolleyes:

- R.Carlos' goal = ...well, what do you expect. :hump:

(8)Ole Ole Ole Ola, Argentina al Mundia!!! (8)
