It seems to me Romero has certain ritual before every kick. Touching the goal post on every side. And the note that he read, I think it's probably a prayer..

Overall, happy to see how the team are very united and seems to have enjoyed this moment very much, started from the win from Bosnia..and hopefully the whole nations + many fans in the world will enjoy greater happiness in the final..

Haha, I don't know how Messi feels singing about himself lifting the cup :D

Aside, from what I read, Lionel Messi has been the most creative player at World Cup 2014, setting up a tournament-high 21 goal-scoring chances for team-mates. That's with most opponents playing ultra defensive. Even the dutch was reduced to 6-3-1. I do think something wrong with the forwards not to be able to finish at least a quarter of those chances.. Hopefully in the final it will be different.

Itz cruel to criticize our strike force... We are playing extreme indirect, cautious constructive football, avoiding maximum risky balls... Just 1 shot on goal from opponent in a WC SF is some stat.... For acheiving that we need to sacrifice something.... Imo this is de perfect approach of play for a tournament like WC....

Argentina have to win this WC not only for itself but also for keeping the sanctity of Latin American football alive... if this Kraut Machine wins,, then the Europeans would dominate the World football for a very long time... Argentina is the last defender of the Americas,, each and every player should play with their lives to let these Arrogant krauts know that Europe has not Conquered everything...

History and God will favor argentina... it is the ultimate sacrilege for Argentina to win a WC in Maracana--The temple of Football... and for messi,, it will cement his place as the undisputed greatest player of all time...

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 10:22 AM
Argentina should play more often in semifinal / final. Previously some mistakes / bad luck cost us at least 2/3 titles (1990 and 2006) couple of example.

In addition, we didn't participated 1938, 1950 and 1954 world cup and didn't qualified only once 1970.I guess at least one more world cup we could have won during 50's since Alfredo Di Stefano was a sensation on that time.

I believe since now we should have 5/6 world cup.

Even-though,we participated 16 world cup out of 20 and reached 25% time in the final including those we didn't participated.

But if we only count our participation tournament then we reached 33% time in the final. which is an incredible result considering ---

"Football is the greatest show on The earth" and only sport play in 200 nations.

Really? I dont know it was clear Messi was the worst player against netherland. Let's hope he will be more active against Germany because noone will understand a such performance in the final of a WC.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 10:05 AM
batigol great post but messi is second best his not diego

in these conditions on those pitches maradona would destroy every team in his way no doubt messi is closest but he AINT MARADON

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 9:58 AM
the gods make argentina work for glory kun should have been this world cups remario BUT NO ITSTAKEN FROM US

Dimaria shoul be showing why real did so well because of him NO ITS TAKEN FROM US


higuain should be are muller NO HE ARRIVES INJURED



Posted on 7/12/2014 at 9:56 AM
I just wanted to express my feelings to every single man I belive will start (and come as subs as well) tomorrow before the final, to say thank you.

ROMERO - I think I was one of Your biggest doubters, even when he was actually playing in Sampdoria. But it turns out, that You are a true champion. To come from clubs bench and participate like a lion in worlds biggest stage...Man, I admire You till the end of Your career.

ZABALETA - In first game, you were one of our best players, then you were a little bit shaky. But I think You describe Argentina the best. You are getting better and better as tournament improves and You will do great in finals as well.. And what a soul you showed in last game.

GARAY - What a rock. I don't mean just physically, but psyhologicaly as well. I will never forget the face you had, when you took the penalty. This face was like you had been walking in park with chiuaua, not taking penalty kick in WC semi-finals. CONFIDENCE!

DEMICHELIS - Well, I shitted my pants, when they included You in 23 men squad, I shitted my pants twice, when I heard, You will be in our first 11 against Belgium. But You played with such errors, no signs of being slowest footballer in the world. And You got first chance in quarter finals. Applause!

ROJO - I was one of those, who never doubted You. I even didn't got, what everyone had against You. I am glad, that You showed everyone, what a great player You are. I am more than sure, that some European highest TOP club will buy You for sure. You are a beast!

MASCHERANO - Well, I wasn't sure of You, because You played different position in Barca and did not so good and because sometimes You had bad temper and overreaction....Well, YOU ARE FREAKING BEAST! Even Barca sees now, that if they put you in Your right position, no matter who are opposition attackers, they cant past You. AND WHAT A SOUL!!!

BIGLIA - I was big fan of Yours and were little dissapointed, that You spent too meny years in Anderlecht. In this WC, You show the world, that You deserve best club than Lazio. They will buy You for sure!

PEREZ - Haha, what a guy. You made Your national team debut in WC semi-finals, and You played like You have had 100 caps :D Damn!

LAVEZZI - In my opinion, You are one of our most important player. And the most I mean is how You behave out of field. You make everyone laugh and that is so so important for a team. And You are tireless robot as well. I really hope, You'll get a goal tomorrow. You deserve it!

HIGUAIN - I hoped You'll become top scorer of the tournament, but it turned out differently. You had injury before WC and You didn't had so perfect touch in first games. But what the hell You did against Belgium. Damn, You dribbled better than Maradona at times and damn You didn't scored new goal of the century against them. But most important is, that You showed against strong Belgium side, that You are a great striker like You have been in Napoli. It's Your unluck, that Sabella plays smart defensive mind football and opponents are like pussys against us, but I am 100% sure, that You will score against Germany.

MESSI - Only footballer in the world, when who's standing with ball, four defenders don't dare to move. WIN IT FOR US and show the world and all the doubters, that You are the best player history has ever seen. I know that You are tired, but it's only 90 minutes now. YOU CAN DO IT!

DI MARIA - You are like snake, defenders fear You, own team needs Your tricks, what makes Germany panic. GET WELL!!! You are TOP3 key player for us.

AGÜERO - One guy in our forum saw a crazy dream, that You scored a winner in world cup final.. Well, I HAD THE SAME DREAM FEW DAYS AGO. THIS MUST BE DESTINY!

SABELLA - Thank You for all, You funny genius.

I am ready for the final glory ( and I know You are as well!!!

THIS ARTICLE IS BANG ON THE MONEY thisis the very reason im a argentina supporter THERE THE BEST AND HISTORY HAS BERN VERY UNKIND...


Posted on 7/12/2014 at 9:15 AM
We will see a different Argentina in the Final...! Messi will be playing high up on the pitch. He wont be going deep much...will wait for his chances..and will do it perfectly. Sabella knows how to exploit Germans high line defense. We will crash them.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:50 AM
@Outlaw, really dude? Rating one player high and the others low, just for the sake of wanting to heighten him?

Wouldn't have been easier to rate all high and then post a comment in which you said that you did rate all high but Perez deserve the best rating? I seriously don't understand this preaching to the wind.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:46 AM
messi is tired its a fact , but doubting his contribution is too much.
in QF he was missing the link up between perez , eventhough perez was great he didnt connect well with messi . and our forwards didnt helped to create space for him.

Hopefully we can see dimaria in action on final

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:38 AM
Leo Messi quiet exhausted.

He needs complete rest at least for a month. Also need to spend some quality time with his family. Playing at highest level you need full mental and physical focus.

I am sure after 13th July he will leave from all kind of football for 5/6 weeks.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:35 AM
@Outlaw,true I joined here, since April. I have been supporting Argentina since I was 6 years old, the final of Italy 1990. I lived in Germany for long, but could not help to become their fan.

I was there in Olympiastadion in Berlin in 2006, when we lost because of tactical mistakes from PekerQUARTERFINALSman. So dude, don't start belittling on unknown fact on myself, you don't know on me and I don't know on you.

I have eyes and I judge what I see. There is hate, I am not google to have a database of your posts, but I have no reason to make it up. Dissaproval is when you say how they played last match and bring some real and unbiased facts. But you keep saying, we will lose and we will lose... And even more, you insulted some days back in a chain of posts that Argentina is shit, is this and that and we won't go past Belgium. What's this?

If you are not a hater, then you are a complete sadomasochist, find pleasure in hurting yourself... I do not deny that I didn't like the way we came to here, but we have a wall of a defense.

I hoped that, since Argentina came this far, would make you and the rest of the haters, sadomasochists and pessimits to at least stop ranting and bullshitting, but no... God forbid that.

Haters are going to hate and losers are going to lose.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:30 AM
Actually Messi playing for the team now...he is not playing the way he wanted upfront...hes playing very deep. Hes creating chances for our strikers...if he was playing upfront and getting the way our strikers gets...the story would have been different...

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:14 AM
Sorry admin, pardon me.....

Outlaw, on which fucking face are you here after those ratings..... Letz leave messi, please giv a convincing reply on this question, why did you rate masche, garay, biglia, zaba, romero all a 1/10 performance.... First you giv a reason for this, after that we can think about considering your comments....

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 8:12 AM
This is an absolutely great video. Guys can anyone tell me the words of the song our players are singing towards the end of the video? In Argentinian of course.


Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:53 AM
I don't understand why people think messi has less contribution since quarter final game.

Why don't people understand because of Leo both Belgium and Netherlands didn't play their normal attacking game.

Leo forced to rethink their game strategy.

Both Marc Wilmots and Luis Van Gaal had nightmare just to think how to stop Leo and play safe.

Just think guys if Leo wasn't there in both the games did Belgium or mostly Netherlands played that over conscious match against us.
They could have go for everything to attack us. Maybe we wouldn't be in the final if Leo is not playing for Argentina.

What Messi creates just a fearing Buzz (I repeatedly saying it). And that's enough for us to do the rest of the work.

And the same thing will happen against Germany. I heard they are planning to stop Messi not by zonal marking rather by square marking. Interesting to see what would be that like?

But seriously guys after watching this world cup, I think we can safely say Leo Messi is the greatest player of all time and that's fact not just I am saying it cause I am an Argentine fan.

Argentina needs :

# Leo Messi (for fearing Buzz to the opposition team, doesn't matter he performs or not)

# Perfect formation with tight defense

# Full dedication and unity

World cup winning formula:

Leo Messi + perfect formation (focus on defense) + Players unity with dedication

75 + 15 + 10 = 100% chance we will definitely win the world cup.

"Vamos Argentina"

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:53 AM
Are argentines serial killers who killed people father or mother or sibblings.....? Or are they rapists who raped men sisters or wives.....? I cant understand why people hav this much hatred towards us....!!!!! Both the greatest players on history are argentines, even with expensive glsmorous leagues you cant earn half de success or fan base what we had, what s de use of being dis much jealousy on that, extremely childish n foolish..... Fucking bastards......

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:50 AM
Outlaw, you know what? Ill' tell you a joke:

The lion summoned the wolf and asked him: "Bring me a box of Malboro". The wolf went to the shop and brought him a box of it. The lion saw the box and shouted "I told you to bring the light version, you idiot", and started beating the wolf.

The next day the lion summoned the wolf again. "Bring me a box of Malboro". The wolf went to the shop and brought him a box of it. The lion saw the box and shouted "I told you to bring the strong version, you idiot", and started beating the wolf.

The next day the lion summoned the wolf again. "Bring me a box of Malboro". The wolf went to the shop and brought him a box of it. The lion saw the box and shouted "I told you to bring the light version, you idiot". The wolf had become smart, had bought two boxes, one strong and one light. He handed the light ones to the lion. The lion was suprised but bursted out: "Wolf, why have you cut your hair so short, you faggot", and started beating the wolf again.

Moral, if we want to find flaws, we will always find them.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:39 AM
From wikipedia: (redirected from hater person) Hatred (or hate) is a deep and emotional extreme dislike. It can be directed against individuals, entities, objects, or ideas. Hatred is often associated with feelings of anger and a disposition towards hostility.

Does that fit well to you, outlaw? I think it perfectly does, seeing your previous pasts of anger and hostility towards Argentina and her players.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:37 AM
Germany fullbacks are easy to beat(believe it). Argie should use flanks like against holand with higuain's

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:35 AM
Fcuk this guy gary linekar.... He was one of guy who encourage Messi to play for spain.......this shit hate us ....... Cool down guys we gonna win 3-1 in finale , infact my prediction donot go wrong until today in this world cup..... We are argentine not the shit team like spain, england, france, uruguya, portugual and holland.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:28 AM
an outsiders views in more objective
we will say messi is playing tops as we are fans
but if we were brazil fans, we would say messi hasnt been great. emotion affects our minds we r human.

despite messi minimal contribution, he drags 2-2 players of oppoenent with him, this should allow our other players more space

i think messi should come and do di maria role and let palacio start up front

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:25 AM
@outlaw: Gary Lineeker hates us because of the 1986 semifinal... so no matter what he says.

I did not say that Argentina will lose because of your post, neither it will win because of my post.

But why are ranting? You were ranting before and now you still do. How it is that you have the exam or the job interwiev of your life and people tell you that you will fail because you are shit? How it feels, huh?

I don't know you but I'd have punched these people in face, had I been in this situation.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:18 AM
@ Abel balbo4, I gave you a Kudo only because I thought you wrote all of it, but in fact it was copied.

You know what? I don't pay attention to Gary Lineeker's words. For an obvious reason. He is a typical Argentina hater. The guy is still angry about the semifinal he lost against us... So you do not pay attention to what he says too.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 7:13 AM
Outlaw, please stop the bullshitting, do not ever dare to try to say "Argentina will not win".

What are you, a wizard that you know we will lose? Why are you so freaking pessimistic? you kept ranting and ranting before the matches, boasting that we will lose and you know what? We won, dude.

Please check Messi's contribution to the goals against Switzerland and Belgium. Even he gave a delicious ball to Palacio in the Netherland's match, who couldn't score.

Do you know what it means to be in the final again, after 24 years? Do you freaking know? I am sure you don't know, otherwise you don't carry on ranting on how Messi is bad... What are you my boy? A CR7 fan? An Argentina hater?

You are free to write anything you want, but do you freaking understand how important is now to support our team before the World Cup final? You obviously do not understand my boy. Then go and post somewhere else, enough bullshiting, enough rant, enough negativity, at least before the final.

In my country we have a saying, which translated to English goes as: "THE DOGS BARK BUT THE CARAVAN GOES AHEAD".

P.s.: Sorry to all the others for my bursting, but I cannot stand injustice.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 6:55 AM
Messi is exhausted by tournament and it may be the main reason why Argentina will not win. Against Germany everyone must be running because in their team everyone runs, everyone defends and attacks. That is a total football. That is modern football. Messi everytime was a player who just strolled on field to spare his energies for a few decisive dribbles. But now there's no running, no dribbles from him. When our players are practising pressing and the one doesn't the whole pressing has no sense. This man must understand - HE MUST RUN.
Messi 4 years ago was far better. And match against Germany wasn't so bad. Just stupid goal in 3 minute (by Otamendi) was determinated. But Messi AD 2010 ran madly...
"But statistics show that Messi has covered less distance on the pitch than any outfield player who has played six games at this World Cup, apart from Brazil's much-maligned striker Fred.

'Leo (Messi) said it looked like his legs weighed 100 kilos. He was very tired,' Jorge Messi told Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo when asked about his son's anonymous performance over 120 minutes against the Dutch".

Gary lineker says messi too tired Germany to win

There is something not quite right with Lionel Messi at this World Cup.

I am the Argentina captain's biggest fan and he is the most wonderfully gifted player since Diego Maradona but, here in Brazil, I have been disappointed with what I have seen.

Some people might say there is not much wrong with Messi at all, because Argentina are in the final and he has scored four goals to help get them there.

But there is no question in my mind that the Barcelona forward has become quite static on the pitch in this tournament.

No movement from the magician
I watched Messi closely when I went to Argentina's semi-final win over the Netherlands in Sao Paulo, and there was so little movement from him.

Yes, the Netherlands put a man on him like everybody else does, but he was very easy to mark. He did not do anything like the amount of running he usually does.

I have watched him for years and he always scores a lot of poacher's goals by darting into the box late.

Messi's only touch in the area against the Netherlands was his penalty in the shoot-out
But every time Argentina did attack down the flanks against the Dutch, he did not even try to get anywhere near the area.

The only time he touched the ball in their box was when he scored a penalty in the shoot-out.

He has had some magical moments at this World Cup and dug Argentina out of a hole on occasions in the group stage, but his overall performance so far has been staccato.

I had a feeling watching him for Barcelona this season that he was saving himself for the World Cup, but he has clearly not been in brilliant physical condition in Brazil.

His father says Messi is exhausted and, no matter how much he wants to, it will not be easy for him to turn it on in the final at the Maracana either.

He is a special player, and he is still scoring goals, but I am not convinced he will play in the way we know he can because he looks so jaded.

I understand the argument that Messi needs to win the World Cup to be elevated to the same level as Maradona in the highest echelon of football. They are both from Argentina for a start.

I think it will massively help his case if they do triumph on Sunday, but I don't see it as an absolute prerequisite.

But for those who do believe it matters, I don't think it is just about Messi winning this tournament - it is about his performance level, and tiredness has caught up with him.

Messi vs Maradona
Maradona was a genuinely astonishing player, tiny but incredibly strong. By a million miles he was the best I ever played with or against.

I don't mean it as a pun after the way he scored his first goal against England when Argentina beat us in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final, but his left-foot could manipulate the ball as if it were a hand.

There are obvious similarities with Messi in the way they could both beat people and are both predominantly left-footed, Maradona even more so because he hardly even touched it with his right.

And they both have the ability to ride tackles and get themselves out of unbelievably difficult situations with people all around them.

But it is difficult to compare players from different generations.

There are massive advantages to playing now, which is why we are seeing goalscoring records being set all over the place. The laws are more in favour of forwards now, and you cannot just be kicked constantly like Maradona and other great dribblers were.

But I think the biggest change is in the quality of the surfaces that they play on. In Maradona's day, they were generally awful and, in that 1986 quarter-final, the pitch we played on at the Aztec Stadium was like a cabbage-patch.

They had dug it up a few days before and replaced it with really small squares that moved every time you put your foot on one.

To score the second goal he got against us that day - the good one - on a pitch like that showed what an absolute genius he was.

Germany carry multiple threats
I found out a few years after that famous match in Mexico City that the Argentina manager Carlos Bilardo had offered my marker Oscar Ruggeri several thousand pesos to stop me scoring.

Argentina won, and went on to win that World Cup but Ruggieri did not get his bonus.

Looking at the Germany team who Argentina face at the Maracana on Sunday, I am not sure who their manager would pay to stop.

Germany striker Thomas Muller has scored five goals at this summer's World Cup in Brazil
Thomas Muller is Germany's leading scorer and looking to become the first player to win two Golden Boots. I like Muller - he is a funny looking footballer who is slightly ungainly and falls over, but he sees things, makes brilliant runs into the box and he is a wonderful finisher.

But they have plenty of other people who can score too, as we saw when they demolished Brazil.

Miroslav Klose has scored more World Cup finals goals than anybody else but they have danger-men in midfield like Toni Kroos and Bastian Schweinsteiger and players like Mats Hummels who can come forward from the back at free-kicks.

With Argentina, teams look at Messi and say if we stop him we are really going to limit their opportunities - but with Germany it does not work like that.

The key thing for them is that they are a team, and a team of very strong players - especially their midfield area and going forward.

Khedira key to keeping Argentina at bay
Germany have played with a high defensive line in Brazil, which has been interesting to watch but the key to that working so well is that that since Shkodran Mustafi's injury against Algeria they have had to shift Philipp Lahm back to right-back, from defensive midfield.

Lahm is a great player but he is not a great defensive midfielder because I think he is a bit undisciplined and leaves them a bit open.

Germany got away with that in their group games against the United States and Ghana but they might have struggled against better opposition. Now, however, Sami Khedira is playing. It is one of those forced changes that happened to England at major tournaments in my time. You can call it luck, or call it what you like, but they have looked much stronger since Khedira came in.

Argentina are much better defensively than everybody expected and will keep things tight again in the final, but their forwards have not been on fire and the injured Angel Di Maria will be a big miss.

Di Maria has remarkable energy to go up and down the pitch and is their one player who can do that, especially with Messi not moving so well. Without him, they might struggle to hurt Germany.

I have said before now that football is a simple game: 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.

Again, this time I will be very surprised if they don't.

Good to see that none counting on Argentina. pressure is on Germans.

@tevezisgod, nice video. Brought tears to my eyes as well. I've been crying for a good 15 minutes after the penalties.

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 5:54 AM
My first post, after years of being a lurker here since the Offside days. My dear friends, this video along with the video posted by @tevezisgod summarises the mood we all are in now. I am sure many of us were too young too experience the glory day of 1986 and many have since experienced the miseries of the years that followed. To me, no matter what the result going to be tomorrow, this team has won over me. They gave me that enormous happiness by trying hard and pushing well above their limits. We just cannot argue that any one of them have given less than they are capable of till now, and for that reason alone, i just pray and wish they get that little more extra energy to perform the same for one more match. I am not nervous, i feel happy and accomplished already. I did not expect this to be honest. If we win, it will be one of the happiest days of my life. But even if we loose, it just wouldn't matter.

I'm from India and my native language is Malayalam. I saw this from a friend of mine on Facebook. This is in Malayalam and im sure many of you here could read this. I'll try to give my best to translate this in English. But it perfectly summarises my feeling right now.

"ജയിക്കുന്ന ടീമുകളുടെ ആരാധകരേ, നിങ്ങളറിയുന്നില്ല നിങ്ങൾക്ക് നഷ്ടപ്പെടുന്നതെന്താണെന്ന്. തോൽക്കുന്ന ഓരോ കളിയും ഓരോ ടൂർണമെന്റും കാണാനിരിക്കുമ്പോ കിട്ടുന്ന ആ ഒരിദുണ്ടല്ലൊ, അദാർജ്ജന്റീന!"
- To the fans of those teams who are used to see the winning ways, you just wont realise that feeling... that feeling, we Argentina fans have been going through in each tournament that we failed to win...

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 5:39 AM
Anybody noticed that...we have conceded just 3 goals in last 11 games..!!

Out of this 3, 2 came against Nigeria...and 1 was against Bosnia..! You remember how softly we conceded those..?? Fede & Gago were in mistakes those times. Both are out now. Romero doing well after that Bosnia error. Hope we will frustrate Germans...and will get goals on the other end..!

Posted on 7/12/2014 at 5:06 AM
Sabella's announcement has a clear message to the team:

"This is my last match, dear group, we came TOGETHER this far and you have been awesome. We experienced the best dream one footballer and a coach can have. Now it's up to you do damn you heart, your soul, for me, for the nation and for the fans. Play as it is your last match of your life.



Posted on 7/12/2014 at 4:28 AM
@Tevezisgod: You Sir, have some respect. I felt like you, but I didn't cry. I didn't even celebrate. But the volcano in me will erupt tomorrow.

Great video!
