    if Argentina doesnt change thier game style Belgium are very capable of defeating them
    We have yet to see Argentina play a game against a team that isn't parking the bus. Belgium will do the same and Argentina will try to score. Expect argentina's players to play close to their true level at some point.

    Lol why hate though, as a fan of football, I'm very happy and hopeful after what we've seen today. I dont care who, even if it was Pakistan I love seeing the rise of a competitive football nation handing it to established nations.

    I'm just messing , they did play well give it another 2 World Cups, USA will have caught up to Europe/South America IMO. If you keep working on that infrastructure & take advantage of football's increasing popularity, you have a great chance. I know for sure they've made more improvements than African teams have done.

    I dont think Belgium will park the bus. Belgians were soo confident about beating US and they are pretty sure Argentina will be a hard opponent but they will win that

    Belgium are more than capable of turning the game into a midfield dog fight and I think they'll try given how easily Argentina themselves seem to get drawn into that kind of game.

    If Argentina score early then it'll be very different though, one of those games.

    Lol I thought surely you can't actually mean that.

    Yeah Americans don't do anything half heartedly and I think an element of national pride will come into international football for them.

    They're slowly realising football is the truly global sport they can make a name for themselves in.

    Asia still ridiculously far behind, especially the two with those massive populations.

    If Belgium don't park the bus they will get trashed. Against messi you are obliged to park the bus. Especially if he's playing with di Maria and aguero.

    But but most importantly they need to keep Jurgen I cannot stress how important he is. He's needs to stay.

    Yep no doubt, they all appear to buy into Jurgen who also happens to be a really good coach, especially for a team like the USA who still look malleable.

    It will be an issue if Klinsmann leaves.

    isnt Aguero injured? I remember he got off earlier in the match against Nigeria and didnt play today.

    Belgians are young, fresh and determine to achieve sth after 12yrs of playing **** (seriously, Poland defeated them :O). But I wish they would let me sleep actually instead of making a vuvuzela fights -.-'

    Yup is it too early to say This is the best World Cup? Even my father who's been alive for longer and has seen more world cups even he claims that this is the best World Cup.
