    English teams would be rather pedestrian without managers such as Klopp and Pep. They are the main difference that makes Liverpool and this City the best teams in the world.

    Whoever wins in the Germany vs Brazil is in the final IMO, and then I can see England kicking out either Spain or Portugal
    damn...we getting knocked out by Argentina again.

    Don't think so. Argentina has us beat in various departments. Overall pace, keeper, physicality, scoring danger.
    Dutch philosophy don't allow them to sit back and look for counter.
    You can expect de Ligt to fold.

    Argentina will bottle it. Messi n co will disappear in the knockout stages like they tend to do.

    If there's anything Argentina lack, it's pace. They just play with a high intensity.

    I was mostly looking at midfield, since Dutch attackers do have some pace since they are young but we won't play on counter.
    I thought Paredes Lo Celso and De Paul had some pace to them.

    NL does have one RB speed demon Dumfries though. Maybe the danger can come from him.

    I guess you are right that Argentina won't have advantage overall in pace but mf battle will be won by them.

    I never thought in any game Argentina was too slow. Maybe they are not team of Dembeles but speed was never issue imo.

    They are slow in defensive transitions that's Argentina's biggiest weekend, a team with real pact stands the best chance of beating them.

    For me, I could see Bergwijn and Dumfries troubling Argentina. Acuna can be a bit weak defensively.

    It's going to be a difficult match for Argentina for sure.

    There could be some players that could be faster, but the team does have some pacy players like Molina, Di Maria and maybe Acuna.

    Lo Celso is also a bit pacy himself and he's very good at carrying the ball from midfield to the final third.

    And Van Gaal is a top manager with loads of experience. Probably one of the best at the World Cup. He's too old for club football, but for NT... doesn't get much better.

    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Sounds like you have forgotten about his situation?

    What an injury fest the Nations League has been. Ridiculous to even play it with a World Cup looming and ridiculous number of domestic games. Outside of major tournaments, international football is shite.
