Throwback: #ARG v #NED - Soul Embrace

On Wednesday night (Thursday morning for me) Argentina will take on to the field at the Arena Corinthians in what could be the most important game in 24 years against the Netherlands. It’s not the first time that we will play a crucial match against the Dutch so here’s a look back on our previous meetings.

Probably the one might least think of is perhaps our first meeting in Gelsenkirchen, Germany 1974. At the time when Total Voetbal was at its peak, Johan CRUYFF and Co, ripped us apart 4-0 with two goals from the Dutch maestro and one each from Ruud KROL and Jonny REP.

Another meeting that we might not want to think about is from France 1998 when both sides met at the quarter final stage in Marseille. Patrick KLUIVERT scored first blood for the Oranje, while Claudio LOPEZ equalized for Argentina.

I’m sure we all can remember Gabriel BATISTUTA hitting the woodwork and as we thought the match as going into extra time; Dennis BERGKAMP broke our heart by scoring the winning goal for the Dutch in the last minute (gotta admit it was a fantastic finishing by any means).    

 
Eight years later, both sides meet again in a meaningless group match; again in Germany but this time in Frankfurt. Only Roberto AYALA and Edwin VAN DER SAAR were in the starting eleven for their respective teams in 1998. The match ended in a goalless draw.      

Of course how could I’ve missed out the most important one for sure and our only win against them; which is why I saved the best for last.
 
The match took place on the 25th of June 1978 at the Estadio Monumental in Buenos Aires, where both teams were playing in their second World Cup Final with a chance of winning it for the first time!      
 
Four years after being hammered by the Dutch, this was the perfect setting for a payback. Only two players were involved in that match for Argentina four years ago. Rene HOUSEMAN was in the starting line-up while Mario KEMPES came out as substitute; in 1978 it was vice versa
 
While the Dutch side still had the core team from 1974 with the likes of Jan JONGBLOED, Arie HAAN, Wim JANSEN, Ruud KROL, Johan NEESKENS, Rob RENSENBRINK, Johnny REP and also the VEN DE KERKHOF twins; Rene and Willy.

One think I must say in terms of scenery, this final was the most spectacular as you can see from the non-stop of confetti and rolls of receipts being pouring from the terrace. The view was simple majestic.
 
KEMPES gave Argentina the lead in the 35th minute. However with 5 minutes before the final whistle, substitute Dick NANINGGA equalized for the Dutch to force the game to extra time.
 
Argentina was back in front again, from who else but KEMPES in the 105th minute. That was his sixth goal which automatically makes the tournament leading scorer. There was no comeback this time from the Dutch as Daniel BERTONI makes 3-1 for Argentina in the 115th minute.   

Fans were seen running into the pitch to celebrate with their heroes and one of which was captured in this photo which I became an iconic photograph in World Cup history. It was dubbed as “Soul’s Embrace”. Watch this following video made by Coca Cola which will tell you the story behind that celebration.
 


With that said, here’s hoping that the Beard will grant us another four days of celebration!

@Aslam, yes you are right. We never knew this would happen. But so many things are happening.

I didn't say we wasted 3 years. Now at this stage, after so many things happening, it feels like most part of our last 3 years were wasted. Luck is most to blame.

U are right that we fielded Fab 4 once, but it was always a 4-3-3, with different players. Our 4-3-3 would never going to work in this WC.

I'm sorry to bring this nonsense topic now. This is not the time to think what happened before and what should have happen now. We are going to have a long night today.

Funny song trending here after brazil loss :-



What you doing is not fair
Can you stop at number five

Those who scored stay apart
Newcomers please do ur part

Either you call foul dear official
Or give us another ball marshall

Forget us please consider our fans
If u won't sure they r gonna kill us

A request to fifa hope u watch de match
90 minutes for a game is just too much

Oscar gave one after receiving seven
To cry or laugh the feelings are even

This is for you our dear neymar
Take that all seven passed cesar ;-)

@joy, we wasted 3 years..?
come one man...how can we predict 3 years before, these things will happen now.?? how you know before Di maria will get injured at this stage..? How you know before Gago will get injured and will perform very bad in this stage.? How you know before Fede will be out of form during WC..? How you know before Aguero and Higuain will get injured near WC starts and will lose form..?
How you know all these before..?? What you can do if these things happens..? Sit and Cry..? A good coach will overcome all these. And who told we used just one system 4-3-3..through out 3 years..? We used different tactics according to opponent..4-4-2, 5-3-2 etc. And our fab4 started just 1 match before the WC..you know that..?

Can't wait to see how Rojo and Robben square up. I wonder, since Rojo likes to play further forward, if that will help keep Robben at bay or at very least make him start with the ball at his feet farther back on their side of the pitch.

Also curious to see if the ref will dole out a yellow for the karate kicking antics of the Dutch defense and midfielders.

I was a big critic of this team but just like I wanted, they made me eat my words and took us farther into the tournament than any other coach or the countless number of legendary players we assembled in the past 24 years. Like him or not, Sabella is treading ground that only Menotti and Bilardo have before.

Sabella has build up this over 3 years. He gave us a system, 4-3-3. He made Gago and Di maria an integral part of midfield and count on Fede-Garay partnarship in defense.
But all on a sudden, in this world cup, we had to thrown out our 3 years of hard work. We have gone back to 4-4-2. Gago is no more a part of midfield. Fede is not in defense. We have no maria with us. Perez and Demichellis is filling up those places who never played before. Its like we are starting a new team with new a new system, new tactics. I have a feeling like we have wasted those three years and less prepared.
But I have to admit, now we are in right track. Had not Aguero been injured, we would be out by now. Sabella should've played us 4-4-2 right from the begining. But, as they say, it is better late than never.

Don't get me wrong, I am just trying to keep my emotion a bit calm and compose and trying to be little more realistic.

Like many bloggers trying to say many things favors us,

you can also count the reverse. Like Brazil didn't beat any competitive match in last 39 years at home soul and they never thrashed like that before.

So anything could happen. We shouldn't be over confident and thinking about Sunday's final when we all know we have to overcome the biggest obstacles so far in this world cup.

Everyone is scared here, what happened?

Netherlands struggled to win against Mexico except for Robben dive....Costa Rica shut them out and they couldn't find the net with their poor finishing and poor shots. Australia scored 2 and almost going for draw in that game. Spain goalkeeper was high when he gifted them 5 goals the opening game.

Please respect others opinion.

Maxi may be pessimistic. It's okay, he's quiet different than us cause not everyone is same and we should be okay with it if not respect.

If Argentina wins against Netherlands I am sure Maxi will be happy just like us. I think he just trying to show his point of view.

People's opinion may varies but emotion/passion remains same to everyone.


Let's be united and support our team whole-heartily

Argentina should win this World Cup as everything went in their advantage:

1) The easiest group, easy draw towards the final if you compare it to Brazil facing Chile, Colombia and Germany.

2) All big guns got eliminated by other teams so we saw teams like Italy, Spain, Portugal, Colombia, and Chile are all out.

3) The host got eliminated so no worry facing the host or their fans.

4) Playing on their continent and considering they are the last S.American team survived, there is a reason to fight and prove that S.American football prevails, or else European football will take command as they are the superior ones.

5) Messi in his prime time, and this is the perfect time for him to shine and claim the title.

I don't think we should show too much confidence against Big giant like Netherlands.

Maradona was over confidence against Germany and that paid us badly when Germany thrashed us by 4-0 in 2010 world cup.

Sabella may not be so entertaining coach ever for Argentina but he surely one of the humble person from all of Argentine coaches.
He respects opposition and treat them well and he also understands his strength and weakness.

I am not gonna say we are going to win against Netherlands easily but I am expecting a high profile clash.
Like Van Gaal said, hope the luck favors us.
Cause at this stage you need nerves, luck, game plan everything.

@ Tallman:

you said "THIS DUTCH SIDE LOOKS AVERAGE TO ME ANDROBBEN OVER RTED AS HELL FLAPPING HIS SILLY ARMS AROUND"

You clearly belong to the 2nd group.

Holland are in the semifinals & they are finalists 4 years ago. If that's average to you, what's good, very good, and great?

If you think Robben is overrated you are wrong. According to TV analysts he's arguably the best play in the tournament so far. I think Messi is the best so far but Robben is among the top 5 for sure.

thats my point all along ANYONE CAN WIN ON A DAY IN FOOTBALL

WEAK TEAMS WIN SOMETIMES LOOK AT BARCA BEING BEATEN BY TERRIBLE SIDES...

look at the english FA cup for gient killing match ups...

real argentina fans NOW THE HISTORY,KNOW THE TRUTH,KNOW WHY ARENTINA ARE SPECIAL

in 2006 on paper and on team display we shouldhave walked it ,,2002 we shoud have dominated,2010 we hada devistating attack and great goals scored

EVERY WC ARGENTINA AS THE COMPETITION UNFOLDS BECOME THE TE TEAM TO BEAT

its time this shit stopped-its time managers stopped being douchbags-its time the opersitions tricks,hatred,cheating DIDNT STOP US

its not brazil who are globally feared ITS ARGENTINA

are youth teams to are full selection are always so strong ,i could pick 4 seperate starting 11s from argentina that could win a world cup

NO OTHER NATION ON EARTH HAS THAT FACT....

THIS IS WHY ARGENTINA ARE SO HATED ITS ENVY

EVERYONE IS ARE ENEMY EVERYONE IS A RIVAL NO OTHER COUNTRY HAS TO DEAL WITH THIS

GERMANY ENEMY , HOLLAND ENEMY,BRAZIL ENEMY,URAGUAY ENEMY,ENGLAND ENEMY ,ITALY ENEMY

EVERYONE HATES AND FEARS ARGENTINA BE PROUD OF THAT.....

DIDVGERMANY LOOSE THE PLOT VS BRAZIL NO ,DID GERMANY RACIALLY ABUSE BRAZIL AFTER THE GAME NO ,DID GERMANS WAIT ON THE PITCH TO INSULT BRAZIL PLAYERS NO


GERMANY CHEATED ASSULTED ANDVRACIALLY ATTACKED ARGENTINA IN 2006

GERMANY EX PLAYERS AND INJURED PLAYERS CAME TOTHE PITCH AND FOLLOWED ARGENTINA AROUND LIKE PATHETIC CHEAP BULLYS IN 2010

WE ARE ARGENTINA MAN UP DUDES HATED BECAUSE WE ARE THE BEST

Chances to win are around 20% for Argentina. We should be reigning on the futbol world and win 7-1 like Germany did yesterday. We are unprepared, Grondona is against us since 1978 but we're still here.

As I read, we'll use 4-4-2. That's the only possible solution to defeat Holland. Good.

Whatever happens, I'll always support Argentina, until death.

If we lose, lets then win Brazil. If we win, I hope for a sweet revenge...

Vamovamos Argentina, Vamovamos a ganar!

On this site there are two groups of people:

1. Those who think everyone is superior to ARGENTINA.
2. Those who think everyone is overrated and an ARGENTINA win is guaranteed.

Guess what? Both are wrong. The first group is basically talking shit, and I'd love to believe the second group but one would have to be too naïve to do so. This is football. Eleven against eleven. Usually 1 team is stronger than the other on paper but anything can happen.

We have a very good team this year and a coach who seems to know what he's doing. I believe ARGNETINA will win today!

VAMOS ARGENTINA!

We are playing well now, against a dutch team that is tired after 120 mins in last game, struggled against costa rica, mexico and australia so I'm confident of our chances.

the most difficult game by far! we had an easy group and thanks to Messi we got the full 9 points. Then we thanked Messi again for ending the game in regular time against the swiss (we got also lucky that the swiss ball hit the post before the whistle). Against the Belgians we played a good game IMO but we lost Di Maria.

So today we are dealing with a much superior team and without Di Maria whom I find a must especially the space around Messi will be elminated. I fear Robben will get a penalty in this game. I'm not very optimistic as some of you are but I pray for luck, I pray for a miracle.

Messi will have a chance or two at most in this game but anything can happen. I hope he makes the best out of them.

on other side of the coin, We will face an injured Brazil on their turf if we lose today. We will sing our song either way!

I hope Argentina will go to the final. I believe we have the quality and ability to do it. But it depends on luck as well.

I was quite shocked with the big margin Brazil lost. I never like Brazil, but I can feel their sadness because so many times in the past I had felt the same. I hope now is the time for our happiness.
