    What I mean is that Argentina's game plan only works if they can take the ball away.

    With Germany controlling the ball 65+% of the time, that does not create very many chances for Argentina. If they had adjusted and opened up a bit more, this game may have ended differently.

    Fortunately it did not...:)

    But almost forgot, that was a brilliant goal. Just saw it again and ita's a beauty. Nothing wrong with that.
    I thought declaring Messie to be the best player of the tournament is a bit stretching it. I know a couple that were much better.

    Game was boring. Although compared to Argentina Holland it was a barn burner.
