Argentina/Mexico

The announcers are discussing how the teams have played in the past, with particular concern the fact that Mexico played Argentina tough in the 2006 World Cup, then went on to get pasted in more recent matches. They say that Argentina is a benchmark - a measuring stick for where the Mexican team is at. Sven will be watching this match closely, but Chucho Ramirez will apparently still be in charge.

The Copa America game is a bit misleading since we were pretty evely matched up with Argentina and actually had a couple chances to score, Guardado's shot off the post comes to mind but as usual Oswaldo gave up a goal right before half time and Hugo took out Torrado who was keeping Riquelme in check in the first half. The second half was basically a clinic, as Argentina just pushed forward and got two more goals, one of them a beautiful chip by Messi. If they wanted to, they could've probably scored 3 or 4 more.

That was the game that made me realize Hugo had not tactical acumen at all, he was impotent and the filtered down to the players. Even La Volpe was able to construct a game plan that would allow us to compete against Argentina and it worked out pretty well until Maxi Rodriguez put on the superman cape and did us in.

Tonite is going to be an interesting game since we will both have different squads than those from the past 2 games we've played and both teams are rather young. It'll be fun.
