    I'm more annoyed by the pseudo ARG fans (who keep calling for x,y,z players with no knowledge about the specifics of NT's recent past), than the current performances of the boys.

    Germany, France and even Brazil would be tougher to beat than the Dutch.

    I'm basing it more on the tactics that the teams employ. The Dutch will let Argentina have possession and hit them on the counters, just like the previous teams Argentina struggled against. Germany and France while having better teams and performances will be playing less defensively against Argentina, I believe.

    I thought you meant these team will advance and would cause trouble for ARG in the future.

    Argies will pay dearly if they insist on playing Gago , he may suit the Argentina league & the WC qualifiers but as we all saw during his stint in Europe (Real Madrid , Valencia & Roma ) he isn't suited to any high tempo , fast game.. he comes short
    He is clearly the weakest link in the midfield.. how Cambiasso is not partnering Masch in the middle is beyond me

    Ffs please take off gago.
    For who? He has been one of their best performers and he is consistent.

    It is their full backs that are poor with their width and the off form forwards. As much as Rojo is trying, he isn't exactly the world class in his overlaps.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    He is not world class against European teams and his through balls are poor but have you seen the bench? He is the best there and with Higuain/Aguero/Palacio/Lavezzi all utter pants, he is the least of Argentina's worries. The full backs don't provide any width and they do not help in carrying the ball, so Di Maria/Messi have to run with it for 30-40 yards and end up outside the box or far from it.

    I wish Pirlo was Argie. He'd be the missing piece.

    We all know there were more deserving players especially in the defense department that were unjustly left off the squad

    Laughable. Rojo has been excellent. Just because Gago is a ex Madridista..... He has been in poor form for Boca even before his injury lay off.
