Argentina is already up 1-0.

I've been a bit impressed with Mexico's performance in this WC. However, I don't see them getting past Argentina. In the past, I've seen Mexican players get easily frustrated when behind, thus resorting in tactics which result in red cards.

Terrible decision for the first goal. High profile mistakes like that are going to force changes to officiating whether FIFA likes it or not.

However, on the balance of play, Mexico's defence is a liability against this all-star Argentinian attack. Mexico looks decent going forward but the Argentinian defence seem to have their measure so far.

2-0 Argentina at the end of the first half. Not surprised. I expect a 4-1 outcome just like the Germany/England match.

Last goal by Argentina to make it 3 - 0 was a beautiful shot. The refs missing the offsides on 1st goal killed the flow of the game. Goals in soccer are too hard to come by for the refs to screw something so obvious up. From a fan standspoint that is was a bad day of games with the blowouts, I much rather have seen two close games then two blowouts.

The better team still won. If you watched the game, you could see that Argentina was superior will their attack, passing, and ball handling.

What can I say... I had a genius goal in my budget (Tévez), but I wasn't counting on the referees to be blind and on our wingback to make the most stupid mistake of the World Cup (close with Green's I reckon)... and that was it, at that point we were finished.
