Hard to say that Argentina's 4-1 win over Mexico was anything but a spanking. It was a clinic in many ways as Argentina picked apart Mexico. It's clear that Mexico needs something, needs Sven to come in and take charge. I'm wondering, though, if the players were cool about his arrival and his hiring how they will react to him once he's in charge.
I thought Ricardo Lavolpe's tactics fit Mexico perfectly but Hugo Sanchez and now Chucho Ramirez have each not played to Mexico's strengths. It will be interesting to see what Sven does.
Anyway, here are a couple of stories from the game.
Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union Tribune writes about the rout in a tremendous recap of the match.
Grahame Jones of the LA Times was also there and writes a bit more on the Argentines.
