Americans impress

How exactly could this writer believe that it was Argentina's U23 team versus the United States in Giants Stadium? Sure, Sosa, Gago, Messi and Aguero are u23 eligible, but the majority of the squad that played that day was not.
Other than that quibble, it's an interesting look at how U.S. fans come across to others.

No. I generally don't write to writers I don't personally know about mistakes in their material.

Wow. Fact Check Fail.

100 bucks says lievano is argento, and thus, has that massive ego.

Love that he can't bother to research the so-called "red stripe" of US fans.

A.C. said...

The article says he's from Colombia.
