Argentina were clearly the better side. They were looking to catch the Dutch defense by surprise with some quick long balls after slow tempo passing at the back, or a sudden bursting dribble via Messi, Lavezzi or Perez. I remember more than a few crossing chances created, on the right side especially.

This.
It is the completely the opposite of what we were expecting. Their offensive play has not been good while their defence just got better and better.

A lot of the credit should also be given to mascherano.. He showed that he is a wc in his preferred position C
DM. Man if only Napoli were serious about getting him before the wc. Now it is almost impossible that barca will sell him.

yup because we NEEDED trequartista and 4-3-1-2
