Cause we didnt have a coach. Maradona knows about coaching the same i know about cars. Wich is zero.

Now we have a better coach. And all the players are in better form.


Look, this is a gift for you: one hell of a counter attack goal from Messi against Ecuador, when we beat them 4-0. It is impressive cause Messi not only runs like the wind and crosses through all the field, he also breaks the net when he scores!

Advice: watch the southamerican qualy cause the winner of it all is in there and not in UEFA

good analysis on top 20 teams for the WC 2014 (not including brasil, host):

Power Ranking the Top 20 World Cup Teams on Qualifying Form | Bleacher Report


some surprises like spain at number 7, "cause they are slipping and everyone knows it". I happen to agree, i think they play boring/ball possession centered futbol and is time for their demise. But the good results they have are undeniable. I think they will do badly at this world cup, hopefully. Maybe im biased cause i dont like they style of play: i preffeer flashy/full of goals attacking style, like Brasil or Argentina.

Im not denying germany is amazing. You seem to be denying Argentina is.

I put Germany right behind Bra and Arg to win it all. But ARG is currently better, thats all im saying. Look at the stats and results. But, even better, look at them PLAY!

I want Argentina to win in the rugby (when they play Australia), but in football they should always lose . I have no problems with the Argentinian players, it's when they play as Argentina that England fans have issues. You can thank your coked-up ex-manager for that .

I would say England's main football rivals are Germany and Argentina, with France and Scotland close behind.

argentina have a habbit of choking in the closing stages of recent world cups despite playing exceptionally well in the group stages

I would put them behind several countries who are in with a chance of winning

brazil
spain
Germany

all of the above are well ahead in my opinion
