What's up with Argentina? Why on earth are they starting Meza and Acuna head of Di Maria and Dybala? And why are they basically just shit?

Oh, and why didn't Otamendi get a red card for aiming a kick at Rakitic's head?

The face you make when you're not qualifying from the groups.

About that, you gotta admit that the Argentinian team has some amazing luck. They still have amazing chances to qualify to the next round, and I think they're going to make it, just like how it happened in the qualification process. A draw between Iceland and Nigeria or even a Nigerian victory would stabilize a lot the situation in favor of Argentina.

They're in a good position kind of, but Iceland are more likely to win tomorrow. Honestly I think Iceland have a higher chance of topping the group, then Argentina managing to  qualify. 



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

they should have gotten multiple cards . at least one more yellow 

 

they are just not good . simply speaking messi isn't gonna do a whole lot against competent defenders. I mean he kind of never did in the world cup but he was ok in the last one

 

and argentina have not the best defense or the playmaking. they have no gameplan. terrible coach too it seems

Boateng is pretty competent ya know...

And their team isn't that bad, they really should be better. Well going forward at least, any country with Messi, Aguero, Higuain, Di Maria, Dybala, Pastore, Icardi etc really should be brilliant going forward. So why aren't they? Them being shit in defence is more understandable given the lack of quality there, but there really is no excuse for their forward line.

Hurray for Croatia for one of the few victories of this tournament that didn't have an Own Goal or a Penalty Kick, and for proving that they are not a pushover.

Tomorrow's games
Brazil 2 - 0 Costa Rica
Nigeria 2 - 1 Iceland
Serbia 1 - 1 Switzerland



Some big changes in the prediction league today. pattyboy60 now has a 1 point lead at the top ahead of GoOnKid. A good day for S.Peelman too who picked up an impressive 15 points and went from 10th to 3rd.

To everyone surprised with Argentina's performances, tactics and management, or lack thereof: welcome. It's been like this for years now. They barely qualified for the World Cup, and even back then I wished they wouldn't because I knew this would happen. I knew we were no match for Croatia, and I knew we'd struggle to make it out of this group.

...and yeah, saying this in hindsight is easy. I know I predicted Argentina to make it, and to snatch a 2-2 draw today - but just as I predicted Egypt to win yesterday despite stating I didn't believe in them, these Argentina predictions were very hopeful... I guess I had to put my emotions somewhere and they ended up in these predictions, because when using reason, it was always obvious this would happen.



For tomorrow:

Brazil 3-0 Costa Rica
Nigeria 0-1 Iceland
Serbia 1-0 Switzerland
