Argentina ended up losing a lot of oportunities...there was a penalty that wasn't called, and Mexico's goalkepper(Sanchez if I'm not mistaken) did great saves...bad luck...this group gets interesting, Mexico and Uruguay have 4 points, Argentina 3 but has like +4 in goals...let's see what happens on tuesday.

Tomorrow Chile- Paraguay and Costa Rica-Brasil, I know I'm hopping for something difficult, but come on Costa Rica!

Mexico In Argentina Shocker
7/11/2004 4:55:00 AM
Argentina, fresh off their 6-1 dismantling of Ecuador, were stunned by Mexico 1-0 Friday night in Chiclayo. The Albiceleste fall to third place in deadly Group B, one behind Uruguay and Mexico.
Ramon Morales stunned Marcelo Bielsa's men with a goal inside ten minutes. Morales zipped a classy free kick past goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri, who stood no chance on the shot.

The Tricolores proved to be a much sturdier side than Argentina's opening round opponents, who simply collapsed under pressure over the final thirty minutes. Javier Saviola, Andres D'Alessandro and company failed to find the space that killed off Ecuador, despite controlling play for the remainder of the match.

To their credit Mexico was able to sustain threatening counterattacks to keep Argentina honest, thus limiting the numbers thrown forward in the attack.

Goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez made a few crucial saves in the second half as Argentina earned a slew of corner kicks. Roberto Ayala had the best chance to equalize, but his header was parried magnificently by Sanchez.

The only team which holds 65% possesion of the ball and hit the shot 21 times,creates a lot,controls the best part of the game and yet loose the game can never be any other than Argentina....

Couldn't be worst for me...Costa Rica loses 4-1 , and Adriano a player from a team I hate so much like Inter scored 3 of those ...that hurts...
And it hurts more when we didn't play that bad to receive those 4 goals, I mean we could have lost but for a more decent score like 2-0 or even 3-1...Anyway, Brasil was way more effective than us, and well Brasil is Brasil even if it's a B side...
I just hope that for the next game and for the eliminatories we'll keep on playing the way we did on the 1 half, just adding more attack and more EFFECTIVNESS(that's our low point, we fail to score, we make the chances but we fail them very easily.l I can still remember the WC game against Brasil were we did 17 shoots and score 2 while Brasil did just like 10 or 9 and scored 5)/

Argentina beat Uruguay 4-2



Ok heres goes
So they stayed at second place and will play Peru in the quarter finals. This game was super tough and a whole lot of fouls committed by both teams but mainly uruguay. They had one player who was kicked out "Bizera" and they still tied 2-2 with a ten man team! But eventually Argentina's pressure got the better end of the deal. And Tevez was able to take some pressure off of the other guys and provided some quick flashes of his amazing potential(he provided the final pass for the final goal of the game)he had a good game even though he only played about 20 minutes. Also figueroa played a great game and showed a constant steady attack. its nice to see the number 9 on that team scoring goals. Ill have some more comments later on. One quick comment is that alot of talk was made about not having the goalie Abbondanzieri start in the next game beacuse he has let in alot goals and in this game seemed stuck to the floor for the second goal but we will see what develops. But ill leave the time of the goals that were scored Now we just have to wait for Peru on saturday.
[size=7]vamos Argentina!![/size]

Goles: PT 8m Estoyanoff (U), 19m C.González, de penal (A), 20m Figueroa (A), 39m Sánchez (U), ST 36m Ayala (A), 44m Figueroa (A).

[size=6]COSTA RICA[/size] 2 Chile 1

Late goal at the 93 minute by Andy Herron(I had to shout my mouth since I think he is not national team material, although I stick to my opinion) gave us the win and the ticket to the second round!
We didn't deserved it, but we pass and we scored and that's what counts!

So far Paraguay 2 Brasil 1.

I think it's very unfair to say that Argentina's goalkeeper "Pato" Abbondanzieri is the worst starting keeper in the tournament. I have to admit, these past few games haven't been his best, but that doesn't mean that he is not a great keeper, very secure, and solid. He just started playing as a starter for Argentina's national team. I think it's too early to say if he is only great playing for the professional teams, and not for the national team.

He never seemed to stand out for Boca, and to say that these games werent his best is an understatement, he has played terrible in this tournament, and is definately playing the worst out of all the keepers. I would much rather see Lux in the goal for the national team.


And for paraguay v brazil, I wouldnt doubt that they wanted to lose. Now they wont have to play Argentina unless they both get to the finals.

Well, if we're going to talk about who we rather have as a keeper then yeah, I also much rather like Lux for the national team for many reasons.....Lux has already been called to the national team by Bielsa, I'm sure he'll be the starting keeper sometime in the near future.....especially because Cavallero has got to go, soon...

Abbondanzieri is the key player, he may be having a bad tournament, but have you seen all the saves he has done for Boca(specially in PK's), I have been considering him among the best 7 or 5 keppers in the world.

Lux is good and will have his chance, he is still young...give Abbondanzieri a break for at least this tournament.

I hope they will win this day.
