I love Argentina and I root of course....but years of dissapointment have taught me to not get my hopes too high. I am a rabid fan of my team (Estudiantes de La Plata, I´m a die hard Pincha!) But when it comes to Argentina I´m a supporter but I cannot get too crazy...yet.
i've posted in spanish before only to have my posts deleted,
the rules i guess, but yes, they should just let us be. s̶o̶c̶c̶e̶r̶ fútbol!!!
I didn't know there was a rule about languages, but i think it's ok, so everyone can have the possibilities to be sharing opinions !! But it wouldn't be bad if some threads get defined in some specific laguages. Like this.
I don´t think that Argentina can be considered a "big team" anymore
yeah, we have great players (the best one in the world if you will) but we´re not strong and we haven´t beat a powerful team in a very long time...
Mexico the only team that didn´t acumulate a single point, even Costa Rica won a game.
Here are my forecasts:
- Colombia shouldn´t have much of a problem with Peru; but they need to be much more accurate, cause they have only scored 3 goals.
- Argentia is going to struggle with Uruguay, but they have the home advantage and Messi is "reborn" (although I don´t buy it, they won over C.R U-23 team not Spain ), so this game is going to end like the last game between this two with a 1-0 for Argentina.
- Brazil v. Paraguay is going to be an interesting match, and I can´t really make a prediction, cause Paraguay has knack for drawing their matches even when they are winning for 2 goals. So in Extra Time Brazil passes to the SF.
- Chile v. Venezuela, this is going to be a much tighter game, I know that Chile looks like they are playing in FF mode, but they have struggled in their games, they started loosing two games in their group matches. And Venezuela is playing really well, they mantain posesion of the ball, and have good shooters (beware of Juan Arango in the free kicks, he is lethal). This is up for anyone to grab, so I restrain myself from giving a forecast.
Last but not least, thank God that Don Gol, appeared in this tournament. I was starting to get a little worried.
we cant really route for any team, everything is unpredictable.
Not really, Colombia V/S Perú was unpredictable, but i think it's pretty much clear that Chile is going to win this competition, it's a favourite in almost every country, even argentina, and that's a lot to say !!
