Three thoughts on Argentina’s painful loss


Down and possibly out of Argentina’s plans?






Ugly is the ideal word for a squad coming as an all-around favorite and losing to an inspired and well-organized Croatia national team. With a 3-0 win, this achievement performed by an inspired Croatian initial eleven, exposing the failures and negatives currently affecting the Argentina squad.

Jorge Sampaoli- Deficient is the appropriate word for his project failures

For more apologies, the manager of Argentina may need issue some to their fan base. He is aware of the damage his group has sustained. Very well seeing his blueprint of a project not taking off and its deficiencies exposed in both matches his squad played. One thing he needs to institute is the unity and discipline in the field so his team can display the football we are accustomed to see from La Albiceleste. Alternatively, is it too late for that? Can he unite and rally his troops as a last resort?

Why did Argentina have to come to this? Look no further than their results from group play.

With the roster and the quality of players this national team has, it should be the envy of all the squads in this World Cup. Still to depend on squads of the likes of Nigeria to defeat Iceland is not something envisioned by this group. By the erratic way this bunch is playing is it a given that can they defeat the likes of the Super Eagles?

Lionel Messi- Can he unite his team and start a revival of Argentina?

Can Lionel Messi after him and his teammates seeing the Nigerian side delivering a valuable win over Iceland, opening the possibilities of La Albiceleste. Unity is the essence of fine football and a successful winning team. This Argentinian squad lacks it and that is a pity! If Messi does not score goals but can he used his leadership to rally and bond this troubled group and see his resurgence in his game and leadership?

Their next match is against Nigeria on June 26, at St. Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg (2:00 PM ET/ 11:00 AM PT, Fox and Telemundo.
