Team Trains Behind Closed Doors

The team is currently now having their practice session behind closed doors with a view on the upcoming match against the Netherlands on Wednesday.  

Big question mark lies ahead on who will take the injured Angel DI MARIA's place for the semi final match up? 

La Nacion has reported that Enzo PEREZ or Maxi RODRIGUEZ are the prime candidate for the job. Some report are also suggesting that Alejandro SABELLA might resort to a 4-4-2 formation but nothing is confirm yet. 

The team is expected to depart tomorrow evening to Sao Paolo.

Van Gaal is all of a sudden a ""GENIUS'' because he's the new Man United manager..The same way the British media was over hyping Belgium against Argentina due to many BPL players they had on their team..

so Suddenly luis van gaal is a Super Genius?

-This guy could not make Netherlands team qualify for the world cup. That team had..

- van der sar,
Frank De Boer, jap Stam, Jiovanni Van Bronchorst Cocu, seedorf, Davids
Bergcamp, Overmars, Kleivert, Nistolroy

Could not even Qualify

Van Gaal is Van Gaal. I am a Barca fan all my life and I know what he is. He is crazier and more stubborn than maxi lopez (of argentina blog) in his belief (:P)...van gaal beleived that he must play requelme as a cultured central midfielder (Requelme never defends) and Saviola on the left forward (never tracks back)! And he persistently played them there and spoiled El Rata and deprived Roman from a wonderful Europian Career. Roman could have had a better career than Zizu, but could not...because of the stubbornness and craziness of Van Gaal the Bastard

And Suddenly he substituted his keeper and his team scored 5 in his first match against a standing unmotivated and rigid spanish team and he is a hero?

Let me tell you, when you substitute your number one keeper, unless he is injured, gives him a message..." YOU ARE USELESS"..for a goalie it's like standing naked in the stadium of 80000 people! I wonder what the goalie felt back then!

If you rate Felix Magath 9, Diego 10 in term of craziness...Van Gaal must be at least a solid 8.5!

Tactical genius my ass

@Francis: You're on the wrong BLOG...Netherlands will never be as good as Argentina...Netherlands are the BIGGEST underachievers in world football..Even countries like France and Spain came along a win the world cup before the overrated Dutch...

Will be an interesting match. Statistics: Argentina played the Netherlands 9 times: 1 win, 4 draw, 4 loss. The Netherlands have had better performances this World Cup. Argentina better opt for the Costa Rica defensive method and hope you will make it the penalty shoot out... Good luck and have fun! @Talman, really, Maradona? He knew how to handle a ball but he must also rank really high in the 'how do I make a mess of my life' ranking. Hardly a guy to take as an example...

how about this lineup. garay and demichelis in defense. put lavezzi on rojo side and give him strict instructions to double up on robban. have mascherano man mark sneider. van persie is off form so not too much worry about him. Leave messi to float between the lines and have enzo and biglia control possession.

Ayr18,

I'm too nervous these days to read media accounts of ARG's matches. I recall that Spain's last two matches in 2010 turned out to be much easier thanks to the fatigue factor. ARG still has plenty in the tank. Hopefully, Higuain is now getting in form and plays well on Wednesday.

@tallman...

"whats his face, THE BLACK DUTH FORWARD..." I hope you your use of "BLACK" is not intended to disrespect Kluivert due to the color of his skin. I hope i am wrong, but the fact that you had to go the extra mile to mention the word "Black" and used capitol letters, says otherwise...

This blog has been a beautiful place for many of us, because there is a great deal of respect with one another... apart from some of the bloggers, many in this blog are very considerate and respectful even in disagreement. We all come from different countries, races, back ground, religious beliefs and so on... i think we should refrain from such languages...

I was offended by that... but as i have said, I hope i am wrong, and you didn't mean it in a derogatory way!

I say we have a strong 442 This is how the Battle will Play out....
Zabaleta will outclass Blind. Demichelis will make Persie be flop of the Match. Garay and Rojo will take out Robben out the game Mascherano will destroy Sneijder Lavezzi will keep Kuyt out of attacking that leaves the weakest link of Netherlands the CM's and CB's they are going to have to stop Messi Higuain and Enzo/Alvarez. One advantage we will have is they played 120 minutes and not only that they have been using the same x11 since day one. I think we will win 2-0 if we score early maybe even more and people will see the real Argentina

had a cheeky peep at other forums many are saying

perez gago mascharano i think EVEN WITH HIS POOR DISPLAY so far that it actually could work perez isa attacking passing hard working threat it gives gago cover and allows gago another pass to play insted of just messi

if 532 it has to have links in midfield and fluid wide attacks...but i dont feel it will be

433/442 with belgiums line up with or with out rojo ... perez is perfect for pass and move with messi

we need to shoot AND MESSI PLEASESTART RUNNING INTO THE BOX = PENO CHANCES WHY DONY YOU RUN INTO THE BOX MORE KID

he scored more goals in less minutesvthan any other barca player hell he even helped WHATS HIS FACE THE BLACK DUTCH FORWARD score at barca wen playing second striker

he came of the bench and saved barca so so many times

van gal putbhim on the wing and turned him into a fucking winger and insisted only his dutch pet coud play dwn the middle

saviloa in the center of a forward 3 was leathal VAL GAL IS A MORON

HE EVEN TRIED TO LOOK LIKE A GENIUS WEN HE DECLARED HIS 532 TO THE WORLD AS IF IT WAS REVOLUTIONARY NOT THAT SABELLA WAS ALREADY USING IT AND ARGENTINA WON A CUP WITH IT

The Dutch also don't have a natural LB and RB.

Lavezzi and Perez is a must to attack their flanks, since DiMaria is out.

Keys to stop the Dutch:
1. Stop Robben a with his diagonal play.
2. Van Persie headers.
3. Synder 20+ yards shots.

Protect set pieces and crosses well, which, we been doing.

The more I think about Van Gaal's past engagements with Argie players,the more I hate him.This guy destroyed one of the biggest talent Argentina youth system has ever produced-Javier Saviola.How can we Argentina fans show so much respect and fear towards this guy?

All the European analysts and fans are singing for Van Gaal and his team.They always underrate and belittle our team and players.Let's teach them a lesson that their master magician knows no magic at all!Come on Argentina!!Beat them hard!!!

@Tallman,

Not only Saviola and Roman,Van Gaal always had problem with Argentinian players.How can we forget what he done towards Demichelis?Demichelis was a rock solid defender.He made him look like a crap and clueless defender,treated like shit and eventually benched him.Just like Pellegrini rescued Roman,he rescued Demi too.Demi was excellent with Malaga as well as city under Pellegrini.But under Van Gaal,it was like over for Demi. I hope that Micho will pay back the mistreatments he received from Van Gaal by beating his over hyped team.

How can one know whether Sabella is going to use 5-3-2 when the training was held in closed door? I mean what is the base of your rumor?If 5-3-2 rumor is true then that means Argentina team does not have enough security to keep a closed door practice really closed door or one of Sabella's assistants and 23 players is traitor who passes team secretes to outsiders...

@Dinucci, I'm not overrating the dutch system. I simply pointed out their strength which is not the individuals rather the system itself.

Against Costa Rica the dutch struggled to score but they didn't struggle to attack. In fact, Costa Rica considered lucky not to concede during the 120 minutes of play.

Whereas, in the match against Mexico the dutch suffered in in the first half and also before the Mexico goal because their system was under attack. They couldn't exert their domination in midfield, their wing backs were kept on the back foot by the Mexican forwards and Robben was pretty useless. But after Mexico goal, the Mexicans simply stopped the pressure and this gave initiative to the dutch to attack relentlessly. We can say that they were lucky with the soft PK but they kept on attacking and pressuring the Mexicans after the goal until the Mexican's defense was cracked under pressure.

Argentina have better players than the Mexicans. Heck, we even have better players than Spain actually (Spain have soft midfield defensively). Therefore, we cannot make the same mistake that the Mexicans did after their goal. We must not focus on defending only and let the dutch to come to us to attack. Rather we must take the initiative to control the tempo of the game, keep the possession, boss the midfield and attack intelligently.

Inler and Berhami did a very good job keeping Messi quiet. Other teams did it also playing against Barca. Many others failed. In a single match, anything can happen.
It can be done if the team does not move the ball fast and if Messi himself doesn't move better without the ball.

How many times have I read about how such and such coach will man mark Messi out of the game? There is nobody on the Dutch team capable of man marking Messi..If Inler and Berhami couldn't do it or Fellaini and Witsel couldn't do it, then who on the Dutch team will?

Guys please get a hold of yourselves, I know the game is coming up and everybody is nervous and anxious but there is no need to start going crazy on steroids..

@Mafioso: THANK YOU! All the talk about Van Gaal being a genius is irritating. This is the guy that was a disaster with Barca. The guy that played Riquelme and Rivaldo on the left wing just because he wants 4-3-3. And as you said the guy that was so average with Bayern...

Stopping Messi? It does not take a genius to figure this out. Every single manager knows that Messi (especially with DiMaria out) is creative heart and soul of Argentina. So any manager (Van Gaal included) will try to prevent our players from finding Messi. Its then up to Messi and Sabella to figure something out.

That is why I find it completely absurd to suggest going with 5-3-2 or with Rojo AND Basanta. No one thinks that defense is the essence of a successful team more than I do. But this does not mean we abandon attack. In fact if we do, we will surrender the midfield and invite them to our area and become under pressure for the entire match.

Masch, Bigilia, and Perez is a solid midfield defensively. Offensively they need to find Messi, who if crowded then we need Higuain and Lavezzi/Aguero to come ask for the ball.
The front trio also have the responsibility to halt Holland play making from deep.

Stopping Robben is key - no doubt. But attacking and keeping Holland worried is just as important.

If there is a game were we need Messi's supporting cast to come to life, this is it.

After reading some if the comments here, I have to agree and change my mind that Rojo for DiMaria won't work.

Guys can I remind you some facts?

Argentina is facing Holland in semi final.They are a team consists of 11 humans.Their player Robben is also a
human too.Why all of a sudden you are acting like they are some mighty demons who are about to crash Argentina?

Members are talking about formations,theory to stop Robben as if they are affected by hysteria.One person is giving 2 or 3 formations,still they are worried about Robben!

Van Gaal is not a magician,not the best manager of this world.He is the one who caused Lucio to leave Bayern and he got owned by Lucio's team in the CL'10 final.Finally Bayern sacked him at the following 2010-11 season.He was jobless until Holland hired him if I'm not mistaken.But here we are,I have never seen a manager is so over hyped by the media and fans.Why do you people believe English media so much?They will through Van Gaal to dustbin if he fails with Man Utd.

I will go with what the ESPN analyst said.If it is Messi vs Robben,it is Messi for me.If it is rest of Argentina vs
rest of Holland,it is rest of Argentina for me.I trust the Team Argentina,what about you?

that 532 can easy become 442 and 424 etc it looksvery defensive but rojo can push on hard then swop him for lavezzi or maxi and perez also swop for maxi or basanta out rojo drops back lavezzi in

it looks like a solid 532 352 442 451 with players able to change on the fly....but i agree we need lavezzi it might be start solid switch to speed...

as long as rojo and perez get forward we can score give messi space-give him players to interchange with - hep him out

Anybody can tell that Basanta is not a LB by all the games he played for Argentina in that position..While Basanta is great at defending, he offers nothing going forward..I believe Basanta only made 1 decent cross or pass in the Belgium 18 yard box for the entire game..While we need great defending we cannot allow our self to be handicap in the opponent third due to lack of attacking skills from guys like Basanta..With all due respect, Argentina cant start Rojo and Basanta at the same time unless Sabella is playing for extra time..

Holland's defender Vlaar is a doubt with a knee injury. If he does miss it will be good for us. He is strong and can bully Higuain but the most important thing is that he is very dangerous in spot kicks.

Moreover it will give more strength to the team. But i think formation can be different, Rojo and Perez can cross well and defend. They can score too..Also Biglia, Rojo and Perez have long rangers to test them.

Mexico and Costa Rica did a great job on Robben, you guys spending way too much attention on Robben, there are 10 other Dutch players on the pitch..Stop making it seems like Argentina have never played against Robben, they did back in 2006..You guys make it seems like Robben is unplayable and that sabella need to concentrate his entire team on stopping Robben..

Lahm is way more experience at this level than Rojo..Pep Guardiola played Lahm at midfield for an entire season and the only reason Lowe used Lahm in the midfield position its because he was accustom to it while playing for Bayern last season..Lahm is also more technical adept to play in midfield. you're asking Rojo to do something that he as never done for neither Argentina or his club Sporting Lisbon before..

Guys again, this is not PlayStation..Just forget about all these fantasy, they wont happen at this world cup..

Robben can be stopped through speed (Rojo), Tackles (Macherano) and a Lionheart (Basanta).

And most of all, do not let him put the ball on his left foot, all the world knows he can shoot only with that.

Germany has played Lahm in midfield. I am not comparing Rojo with Lahm. But considering he has been the best wingman for Argentina and considering how Basanta played against Belgium as a left back, I thought about playing Rojo in Di Maria's position. That's all.

Its just an idea. We need to stop Robben by any means. What if we don't depend on our defenders only to do that? What if we try to nullify him right in the midfield?

Lavezzi cannot defend like Rojo obviously. All he has done so far for the team is providing some crosses which Rojo does well too. Di Maria moves all around the pitch. We know that. But the replacement of Di Maria does not necessarily have to do that. And can any of Perez/Maxi/Ricky do what Di Maria does? And we have been talking about being unpredictable. For that, we must experiment.

I don't know what Sabella has in his mind.

I think they will play 5-4-1 tomorrow and will wait for their chances. They wont have any guts to challenge Argentina other than 5 man defense. And they know if they play attacking football how they will suffer against us with their poor defense. And they would have noticed the chances Iran and Switzerland got when they defended with 10 man. They will think they can capitalize with that rare chances and will go for dirty defensive work.

I hope we go for the same XI as we did following Di Maria's injury. Put Perez in there to add some depth to our defence. We can always sub on attacking players later. I am not a fan of Higuain but I realize Sabella will start him no matter what. I would not start Aguero but I would consider subbing him on in the 2nd half. Holland has had trouble scoring the last few games, and if you take away the phony PK goal against Mexico, have only scored one goal in the 2nd round. Lets keep it that way by playing a tight and compact game.

Pradi: Real Madrid is not a tall team..Ramos is not taller than Garay or Fernandez..Benzema is not taller than Higuain, they're about the same height.Ramos is Real Madrid main threat on set piece, he might not be the tallest guy but he's good at getting to the ball first in the opponent box..

Guys, di maria n rojo will nvr be de same.... Working at open areas n crowded areas r very dfrnt, with pace n cross alone we cant replace di maria with rojo, di maria is not only a crosser, i dont think rojo has de quality n maturity to work de ball around de opposition box... Also crosses arent working for us that much, real madrid has 3 very good headers who can get to di maria crosses bt we hav only higuain n palacio in whole squad that too not so tall, i think datz de reason y sab switched di maria to right n lav to left in last 2 matches, favouring thru balls which our forwards more suit also comapritively easier angles for left foot n right foot to
take shots on goal.....

Amlan, Rojo is not even a natural LB and now you want to play him in midfield? Bad idea which will never happen anyway. I rather Sabella stick to a more conservative system. He can add extra force in attack by bringing in Kun later in the match. But first, I think it's better to avoid conceding than going all attack leaving much space behind to give Robben to hurt us.

Di maria is also a play maker, Rojo is not..Di Maria switches to both left and right at times and he also play central/CAM at times..Rojo does not have those abilities..Can't afford experimenting in a game of this magnitude..After the world cup we can try that formula or whatever but not now..

Guys, one thing has just come to my mind. What if we played Rojo in place of Di Maria in 4-4-2 ??? Just saying. Rojo has got the speed and crossing ability. Basanta is good defensively. So, why not play both? This could also help to block Robben.....

-------------------Romero
------Zaba-----Demi---Garay----Basanta
-----------Perez----Mascherano---Rojo

'' Brazil won't miss Thiago as much as they will Neymar. Brazil has good enough defense to make up for Thiago but their offense is complete rubbish without Neymar. Jo is a joke, Hulk and Fred are the laughs of the world complete jokes of strikers they are and Willian is the only decent striker Brazil has outside of Neymar. Brazil is going to get annihilated by Germany.''

Someone post this on Facebook, I guarantee this person that Brazil wins tomorrow..

Germany 2014 world cup record thus far..

Germ 4 vs Portugal 0

Germ 2 vs Ghana 2

Germ 1 vs USA 0

Germ 2 vs Algeria 1 (120 minutes)

Germ 1 vs France 0

Germany have not been convincing at this world cup, its not like they are playing at their 2010 form leading up to this game..People need a reality check, Germany have never beaten Brazil at the world cup and it will be tough against probably one of the weakest Brazilian team to play at a world cup..History will only repeat itself tomorrow.

Brazil will win this game tomorrow...

Guys we shouldn't be overly confident that victory is certain against the dutch. No matter how talented our team are, please keep it realistic. The battle must be fought on the field before we can claim the victory.

I'm confident that Sabella will find the right formula to defeat the dutch. But we shouldn't underestimate the dutch especially when Van Gaal is the coach and Robben is currently in the form of his life.

The dutch, more than the names of their stars like Robben, Van Persie and Sneidjer, are actually a system. It is a very good system which has been rehearsed probably hundredth times to maximize their strength and minimise their weaknesses. To defeat the dutch then Argentina must defeat the system and do not focus solely on stopping one or two dutch players.

That's why I believe dominating the midfield and pressing their wing backs from going forward are ways of cracking the system. If we manage to do these then their attacking threat will be stifled.

If we play Rojo instead of di maria as a winger. both basanta and rojo can link up as well as keep robben in their back pocket. Rojo has also good crosses in him and can play one two with higuain or messi.

And our players should also be worried about Wijnaldum and depay's pace. Both of them are incredibly fast.

During the game, I was supporting Costa rica. However, something inside me wanted the Dutch. I will not forget the Bergkamp goal over Ayala. May be a settlement is pending ;)

I am nervous. But Holland did struggle against Mexico and CR. Rojo will do good against Robben, I think. Perez will also do well and keep a good balance. Aguero may come in later if we are behind. Perez and Biglia will supply to Messi, I am worried about the 1-2 exchanges Messi need to have to get into the area. Hope we get an early goal. Something like a goal from Ezequiel Garay.

RickyAlvarez: Why are you talking about the Spain game? Benzema was on fire during the group stage but where was he against Germany?Higuain? All that matter is that he's peaking at the right time, while Van Persie looked clueless against both Mexico and Costa Rica..

I did not say Robben was shabby, I clearly stated we have the best player in the world..I would take a guy who scored 91 goals in a calender year plus the most assist for many season in Europe over any player.

Netherlands still concede more goals than Argentina, no matter how many goals, we still have a better defense with more experience players that won many titles for their clubs over the years.

Nigel Di Jong will be a bigger lost to Holland than Di Maria to Argentina for the game on Wednesday..

Holland is a good team and can score easily . Argentina needs to play similar to the way they played against Blegium, Mascherano and Biglia in the middle was a brilliant move. I am for keeping Basanta in and supporting him with Rojo in place of Di Maria hence snuffing out Robbens game and keeping some pace and defensive play that we'll be missing with DiMaria out. FF is done for the tournament...he's looked weak all month. Dimichelis played well and got on to every cross Belgium threw at Argrentina. Shut down Robben and he will get frustrated and do something foolish...He's a baby and can be frustrated easily if things aren't going his way...He will stop passing the ball and try to do everything himself which will frustrate the entire team...The Dutch are notorious cry babies and ball hogs.

4: Argentina scored against top Goal Keepers.
5: Argentina scored in every match
6: Argentina did not concede a single goal in Knockout
7: Argentina already won against Ottmar Hitzfeld one of the genius coach in the world.
8: Argentina won against three most surprising European teams
9: Argentina playing in Latin soil
10:Argentina has BIG stadium support just like playing home.
11: Alejandro Sabella never lost against European teams
12: Argentina lost just 2 matches under Sabella one at starting another recently as most of the fisrt X1

Let's dissect Kids points.

You can even used the Ancelloti/Real Madird strategy to contain Robben..Robben was none existent against Real Madrid in both legs..

1. Argentina is the fresher team of the two. I agree.

2. We are basically playing at home game. well okay!

3. We have the best player in the world. Obvious but alright. Robben is not too shabby though.

4. we have a great unit of hard working players. Same goes for Netherlands

5. we have one of the best defense at this world cup, already 3 clean sheet and it should have been 4 due to lack of concentration during the Bosnia game. Netherlands new comers like blind vlaar has been sensational for them. Same goes for them.

6. Argentina getting better and better every game and is also peaking at the right time..

7. Holland seems to run out of idea, they're way too reliant on Robben.. and we are way too reliant on messi. since di maria injured . even more so now.

8. Van Persie has been a no show at these knockout rounds thus far. what are you talking about? Persie has been incredible against spain and played well against chile. Same can be said about aguero and higuain. Both Higuain and Persie played 1 good match. Persie against spain and Higuain against belgium.

9. SABELLA IS UNDEFEATED AGAINST EUROPEAN TEAMS IN 10 GAMES..ENOUGH SAID, SABELLA ALREADY KNOWS HOW TO PLAY AGAINST THESE EUROPEANS AND ALWAYS SEEMS TO ADJUST TO THE DIFFERENT TEAMS. i like sabella and he has more or less experience against playing all kinds of europeans teams.

However probably Netherlands is the only 1 top teams that we did not play in the last 4 years. Sabella's tenure never faced the dutch whereas we played the likes of brazil germany and italy.

I was just reading an article in a dutch newspaper stating that the (dutch) team should take advantage of Romero's weaknesses. From his years here in Alkmaar (with AZ) they know he is no good at corners and crosses. He does not come out and catches those balls.

The newspaper report that he is a great line keeper with good reflexes (true) but he is not the kind of keeper that breeds confidence to his defenders (also true I guess). So we can expect long balls, corners and free kicks...

Below this article was a mention that Caballero is moving to Man City...

Idea: If Sabella decides to go with Orion in goal, he would surprise everybody in the opponent's camp. I am pretty sure they never saw Orion play in action.

Holland plays a 5-3-2 counter attack game, also a 4-4-2 attacking game.

If Holland cant create good counters and cant score, and if we score, Van Gaal will use his 4-4-2 formation, which is the same formation he used to blitz the Mexicans. But Mexico got overly reliant on defense against the Dutch, which is a no no.

The Costa Ricans used a 9 man defense against Holland, but Holland should've won that game 2-0 at least, Costa Rica got lucky on a couple of occasions on defense.

We have to press Robben, like we did with Hazard, a double man press on the flanks and a tough one man iso press when he get's the ball, with a second defender with a weak side help if needed to get him off the ball.

Also Van Persie with those deadly headers, so our flank defense got to improve, because we did give away a couple of chances against Belgium. The two man press on the flanks is a must.

I don't see a reason why Argentina can't stop Robben if both Mexico and Costa Rica both stopped him and shut him out. Spain scored an early goal against them from a PK, Mexico scored first against them and Australia put 2 goals in their net considering Australia is the weakest Asian team coming to this WC. Chile contained their attack for the whole first half as well. I don't see why there is so much hype over Netherlands lately everywhere on the net....it is a strong team but their defence isn't superior, and their midfield is "ordinary" using the Belgian lingo.

Van Gaal strategy to win over us:

1) Have a discourse to the team, which will mainly vert on how to mark Messi.
2) Call the best Dutch actors and professional divers which will instruct Robben the various techniques on diving.
3) Call Joachim Loew for help, which will answer that this is not Argentina of 2010.
4) Call Johan Cruijf, which will answer that this is not 1978.
5) Pass all the Argentina videos, from 1930 onwards.
6) Ask all the best handwriters to instruct Patrick Kluivert how to design on a paper note all Messi's tricks and dribblings.
7) This is impossible task, but to do this, Klyvert will need to smoke hash, which he neved did before in his life.
8) Bring a coffee shop to Brazil all the way from Amsterdam.
10) Doing a numerology scientific study in which minute to change the players.
11) Have Robin Van Persie doing some courses of bungee jumping.
12) Teaching Schneider how to shot a ball like Messi
13) Since this is impossible, he will rather beg that Robben has learnt his course on theater and diving well.

Betting odds decide nothing... Argentina is favored heavily just like the other games but we should try to play even better than what he did against Belgium... With Dimaria injured,, i want this team to play with all their spirits and hunger to reach the final... And never underestimate Brazil,, with Neymar injured they will play with more unity than ever before and everyone knows that Germany are eternal chokers in semis...

I wanted an all Latin American Final but logically thinking,, the bloody krauts will face us in the final... revenge for 90 WC will be sweeter than the sweetest honey...

So all of a sudden we have all these expert here telling Sabella on how to line up against Holland..Sabella will take care of Robben, the same way he did against Shagiri (Swiss) and Hazard (Bel)..Costa Rica and Mexico (apart from the fake PK) contain Robben with a more inferior team than Argentina..

All this crazy talk on Mundo as of late of how Robben is so unstoppable, the greatest thing football have ever seen blah blah blah blah..
