Recommended Posts

If Croatia make it two, Argentina melts down for sure.

And the is no other decent goalkeeper besides Romero? this guy makes Karius look good.

Rulli but I think he's injured.

Playing like a team that barely qualified for the World Cup, we shouldn't be surprised. :D

Maybe he has a concussion. 

Wouldn't you watching that in front of you for 90 minutes?

Even Romero was Subašić's sub at Monaco

I actually think Romero has improved at Man Utd, cos he had a history of being accident prone but that seems to have more or less disappeared from his game since joining Man Utd. It's just he's behind David de Gea there.

Who actually is Meza? Possibly the worst Argentine I've ever seen.

Yeah never even heard of him before this WC. Has not impressed :D.

Sampoali such a fraud.

Does Messi even want to be here?

He's definitely retiring from international football once Argentina get knocked out of this tournament

Again, what did Dybala do to upset Messi?

Criminal that a player of that quality is sat on the bench. 

Icardi on the beach somewhere too. Mad.

Messi has been a non-entity. Didn't look right during the national anthem either. Can see them losing this and getting knocked out in the groups at this rate.

Said the same thing after the Iceland draw. I don't recall seeing him sprint in these two games.

Messi is so dispirited playing with these mugs, they'd almost be better off not playing him and playing dull functional football like Portugal. At least they'd be a team.

I was surprised to see Dybala not come on first game and how he has not been brought on now is crazy. Especially when you see some of the names playing instead of him.

Messi's off the ball movement drops from 20 with Barca to about 8 with Argentina.

He always does that. Buenos Aires and local time.

I'm expecting (well hoping) the last 10-15 minutes will be crazy, end to end drama.

If he's a media presence on Argentine TV it could just be one watch for Russian time and one for Argentine time to schedule TV appearances or something.

bar 4 or 5 Argie players, the rest of them seem like they would struggle to get into a Stoke team.

Thing is, all of Argentina' GKs are the wrong side of 30 and unlikely to appear in 2022. They could have at least called a young 18-24 keeper as the token 3rd choice to give him some tournament experience.

This is ridiculous. Messi is picking the ball up from the CBs. My word. 

Perfect summary of Argentina these last 10 years.

Sampaoli obviously doesn't know you don't use all three subs with 20 minutes to go.

Caballero pitching the ball up is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Super finish though.

Yeah if Croatia win there and Iceland beat Nigeria then I can see the two European teams playing for a draw in the final game.
