Nothing to say except that Brazil were so dang extremely lucky yesterday, with two equalizers on the very last minutes, I hate that kind of wins
It's worthy of notice though that the first two Argentinians in the shootout seemed like they're taking penalties for the first time in their lives, whereas their keeper was too busy bouncing in his place that he forgot to jump most of the time

Another International tournament, whaaaaaatever

It's true that the Argentineans played better, but the Seleçăo Brasileira deserved the victory more than them.
Facts:
- Our team was a young team with low experience;
- This new squad haven't time enough to get the perfect adjustment;
- This team had few trainings together;
- Haven't any adaption game, as friendly or any kind of match;
- This tournament was their first together, the premier was their first match;
- The biggest "stars" were not included;
- and goes on...
I'm very proud of them. They proved that Brazil NT has two main squads. Brazil "B" is equal to Brazil "A".
The Argentineans were too self-assured of the victory, they are too presumptuous and self-righteous.
Bielsa said: "We have no fear of you(...)You, who are 5-time wolrd champions, who has the animal Adriano, who scored two penalties, who was luky against Uruguay... You, Brazil, this sunday I wanna see you". Well buddy, you better have fear of us.

When Argentina scored the 2nd goal at 87min, they were convinced they would be the champions.

They provoked us, affronting with dribblings and instigating us with tricks. But at 92 Adriano "the animal" (as "El loco" said) scored an incredble goal with the class and the skill of a soccer "gentleman". The only thing that look bad on him is Inter.

And we won, with our humbleness, knowing that Argentina were the probable winners. Our amazing "shooters" and wonderful goalkeeper made us winners. We are one more step above them.

A victory against argentina has a very sweet taste.

Wonderful to see them watching the Brazil NT celebrations from the field, under the obligation from the committee. Bielsa taking the silver medal off his neck, tucking it away inside his pocket. He was notably ashamed.
Thanks for all those who supported Brazil. Brazil loves you mates.
And for those who suported Argentina, sorry

You don't need to be sorry for anyone who supported Argentina or whomever neither its your business.

Congrats on your team's win anyway.

Argentina was better team.They played better football throughout the competition and particularly in the final.They don't deserve to be bashed IMHO.

I am not Argentine nor Brasilian national but believe me Argentina were best team in the copa and they desrved it more than Brasil.

Hey! They had the most of the stars: Abondanzieri, Sorin, Ayala, Zanetti, Delgado, and the list goes on... The Argentinean team was great even without Veron and Crespo, the bigest ones out.
Our "stars" was almost all of them out: Kaká, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Dida, R. Carlos, Cafú, Zé Roberto, Lucio, Roque Junior... Ahn?!

Oh! Poor Bielsa! Bielsa himself said it would be a shame, to loose against Brazil "supplent" team.

Concluding, Argentina really did an amazing job, they were great. Argentina Nt is a great team to watch. The Brazil vs. Argentina matches are my favourites. But my boys played with their hearts, with passion, not with angriness. And as here in Brazil we often use to say, Futebol é uma caixinha de supresas. Translating litterally= Soccer is a little box of suprises

I say Brazil is the Boca Juniors of national teams, luck is definitely always on their side (= tienen un culo barbaro!!!) ..... despite of what some of us might think, or what team we might believe should have won this final game and Copa America, the reality of it is that Brazil won.....it's upsetting, especially to lose this way, on pk's......but oh well, that's football, it's not always logical and not always the best team wins.

Congrats to Brasil! I'm sad ,though for Argentina.

Adriano that guy is amazing...I don't think is fair to call this a b side , I totaly envy brasilians for having such a b side (Adriano, Alex, Diego, Luis Fabiano...they would be starters in almost any NT).
Anyway Argentina did play better, but lamentably football is not who plays better but who scores more.

Thanx,
I really apreciate your support, actually Brazil does.
IMO the champion should not have to play the qualif. tournament, the right system is the automatic qualification.
But anyway, I'm sure we're gonna make it, I'd like Argentina to do it too. The strained circumstances get us stronger and make the victory most valueable.

I think the destiny wanted Brazil to win. On the confrontation against Uruguay there was a pass for the guy right infront of the goal, without any defender (just him end the goal), this guy simply kicked the ball above the goal. It was pure misfortune for him (a blooper haha), and our luck.
But you can't deny, Brazil is great.
Even the "B" team can play equal anyother. Our goalkeeper Julio Cesar is amazing and Adriano is a fenomenon. But they played with all due respect and no fear of Delgado, Abondanzieri, Tevez, Ayala, Kily Gonzalez, Zanetti and company.
Argentina is one of the strongest saquads of the world, Uruguay had a great season and there was other good teams too, and a weak team should never has won this championship, Brazil had it's merit.
Is true that Brazil had some luck but nobody can deny the value on this brazilian young boys.
And 'bout our "culos". Culos barbaros son los de los hermanos (argentinos), que se llevan muchos balones dentro. jajaja!!
By the way, where are you from? You speak spanish.
Hasta luego!

Agree.
This is for the first time the holders are playing qualifiers which is unfair IMO.
I believe South American super powers (Argentina and Brasil) will qualify and with some ease.

Which one else do you think is gonna do it too?
Uruguay had a great Copa América, their performance was excellent, and I think it's gonna give them more strengh and animation for the next games.
