I will say the atmosphere has been great all around. Massive amounts of fans from Mexico, Brazil (obviously) and Chile packing the stadiums. Australia, Croatia, Spain and Netherlands have all brought a good number of fans that have made great noise. Cameroon did not bring many fans.
Argentina haves a lot of people there, too. Tv says there are at least 100,000, more coming in sunday for the game. A LOT of people (even people i know) will go but they will go there tomorrow or on sunday and see if they can get in the game.

The problem with argentina games is that of course all their games are sold out and argentinians bought all the available tickets, wich were far less than the amount of argentinians that wanted to go, so they will be A LOT of argentinians wandering near the stadiums or trying to get in, when in reality everyone wants in but FIFA wont sell as many tickets, plus, everyone wants to see argentina not just argentinians, cause of Messi and all the superstar players.

Anyways, hope the atmosphere on sunday feels at home, cause surely argentina is more local than bosnia, and it should be the 2nd most local team after brazil.

But i just dont like their boring style of football I hated it when they won 2010 with all that tiki taka and those boring 1-0 games. I rather watch an offensive team that scores a lot of goals, like this sabellas argentina (and not just cause im a fan of the NT, but this argentina is the epithome of what i like, their games are super fun cause they are goals goals goals, shots to goal, goal, almost goal, etc. In other times, brazil were also like this and i loved to watch them. I just love offensive teams. Example: i loved netherlands in the 2nd half yesterday. amazing!)

So, no, i dont hate the country at all, i just hate how they play soccer

Congrats!
Most of Spaniard team is already too old to play at a World Cup, so this way may be available a better team for the next time.

At least the supporters had a lot of fun before the match:
