  1. Mike,
    Sorry there was no more reply button lol. Yes i do think Mexico better choice. I feel like Mexico has that fear but i don’t see Venezuela has any fear at all. If we play in our potential than doesn’t matter who we get to be honest

    • That makes sense. But the Mexican team is looking on fire. And each of their games is almost like a home one.
      (My brother-in-law is Mexican, so I’m hoping that they don’t meet Argentina, just so he doesn’t feel bad when Argentina eliminates them.)

  2. Messi was just warming for rest of the tournament, nothing else. But someone needs personality to show he is a legend!

    Messi you are not a leader, but much more than a leader.

    • Well said. I believe too he is not leader like maybe Maradona used to be. Maradona is very vocal and Animated but Messi is opposite but he is majestic on his own way.

  3. Wow BOO it’s my relax. We won that’s all that matters. Messi played great and does his talking on the pitch enough said. I have seen Maradona and Messi play and I would rather Messi all day.. people have different opinions… now I haven’t been able to see Venezuela play, but I heard they have been doing well.. any feedback on this, since most likely that’s who we will face is if they lose to Mexico.

      • Oh really?? It seems like we always tend to struggle vs Venezuela and I have never seen them strong in a tournament like this. Can’t wait to see the Mexico game on Monday to see the competition

      • lol, rate Venezuela higher than Mexico? This Panama team would beat Venezuela, and by seeing how Panama play, they will beat Chile. Chile is down right horrible..Playing Venezuela is better than facing Uruguay. With Uruguay it’s always a rivalry even if we are better than them, this means, a dirty game and potential yellow/red cards for our players. Thank goodness we won’t play against Uruguay, they would have been nastier than Panama was against us. Neither Venezuela or Mexico is any match for Argentina. And it seems like their only good player Rondon is done for the tournament with an hamstring injury.

        • Didn’t Panama have several players who can’t play the next game due to yellow card accumulation? And the guy that got the red card? Can they still beat Chile with the reduced team?

  4. Messi is the heart of this Argentina Team for last 10 years. What a servant for the country. He never did anything to defame Argentina……….

  5. This is what Argentina has been missing in past tournaments. When your CB’s and midfielders are scoring goals in a tournament that is a positive sign of a championship winning team. Torres won a world cup without scoring a single goal and he played in every game for Spain back in 2010. I love the team spirit. Let’s be honest, the service to Higuain was not great in the first half, also, the Panama player took the ball off his foot before he tries to kick it at goal, that was not a miss chance, it was good defending from the Panama CB.

  6. You know i can speak 4 languages and i know what did he say. I am saying he should not have said now when he meeting with another stupid old man Pele. Obviously every argentine look up on Maradona and that’s how he paying it back.

  7. ITS A ARGENTINA SITE DOES YOUR JEWDUS WAYS NOT SEEM OUT OF PLACE

    TALK ABOUT AS MUCH CLASS AS ICARDI BUNCH OF MORONS

    A MEDIA SOURSE TOLD YOU SOME SHIT ASO YOU TURN AGAINST ONE PLAYER VS THE OTHER

    ARE U THAT BLIND SERIOUSLY

  8. You don’t need teach me what is Mundo is! I know better than you. We are not Messi fan boys. We love Argentina and bleed Argentine. You talk about Maradona all the time i started feeling that you are the SON who he didn’t want to have!

  9. IL SHUT UP WEN YOU GROW UP FAKE FAN

    IM VERY WEALTHY IL FLY ANYWERE ON THIS PLANET TELL ME TO SHUT UP IN PERSON U FAKE FAN

    THIS IS MUNDO ALBICELSTE NOT I WANT TO SUCK MESSIS DICK.COM YOU TWOT

  10. I did hold my emotions untill now. Whatever Maradona said he should not have said it because his team is playing in a tournament. And he making stupid comment with that RETARD Pele. What a nice way to answer. Leader doesn’t mean macho and talk stupid all the time legend. It means conquer with beauty too.
    Suck it Legend

  11. CAN THE MESSI VS MARADONA FANBABYS KINDLY LEAVE THE BL,OG AND NOT RETURN ITS A ARGENTINA SITE NOT A MESSI SITE

    MARADONA WON A WC ON HIS OWN LIKE A GOD

    MESSI SCORED A GOAL AFTER IT BOUNCED OF HIGUJOKES FACE HARDLY THE SAME THING

  12. Do you think Maradona is worried that Messi will win a Copa America, and maybe a World Cup and also be Argentina’s top scorer? That would make Messi more successful than Maradona, right?

  13. Messi made all the difference in a very, very mediocre team. He is head and shoulders above the rest of our team. A 5-0 win and still disappointed. The Aguero goal that was disallowed for offside was also great.
    Happy with the 3 points, enthusiastic about Messi performance, satisfied with Aguero and let down by everyone else.
    Hopefully the flattering result does not inspire false hope.

  14. Paradoxically we played better against Chile than we did against Panama in the first half. Messi made all the difference. We are lucky to have him.

  15. It’s bit more play acting from our guys but Panama players are allowing us to take advantages. Those silly Panama guys had every opportunity to win against Chile but they are ruining their own chances by picking up yellows after yellows.

  16. I hate system coaches for National teams, they live and die with their system, look at Tata he is hell bent playing 4-3-3,no matter what! International football is not like club football where you can sell and buy players that fit your system, you must work with what you have and play according to their strengths.
    Man we could be the deadliest team ever if we were flexible.

  17. That was pathetic to watch. It seemed we were down to 10 men not Panama. No creativity no ball control. How we reached to finals in the last two years . . . .
    And Di Maria,,,,,, not surprised at all

  18. Pastore should have started. I made this clear a long time ago. Higuain is isolated,his work rate is great but nobody is getting the ball to him. Get Messi and Pastore on the pitch. Augusto and Gaitan out.

  19. What a bad game. We are playing slow, predictable and are easily provoked. Balls bounce of shoes and passing is sloppy. We lose Di Maria again to injury, as usual. A good coach would immediately bring Aguero after the red card to put pressure on Panama defence. But now, we hold on to the same line up and tactic whatever happens. Both team and coach lack creativity.

  20. We are not playing well at all, what an ugly, physical game. And Di Maria, what on earth is wrong with this guy? He seemed to have gotten injured our of nowhere

  21. maybe I’m sleepy and am seeing it wrong but we are playing badly.
    the defense is shaky defensively and frustrating with this forced build from the back which leads us nowhere, makes us slow and leads to long balls that we never win, at least they can score goals what our forwards can;t do. midfield inexistent and so is the attack.
    one area where our team has become better is play acting, frustrating first half, and now di maria is injured, what a surprise.
    lamela who is not the fastest player looks like usain bolt out there.

  22. This is the third tournament di maria is getting injured. I have never seen him getting injured when he was at madrid. Can never trust jorge mendes client.

  23. It doesn’t seem like Di Maria injury was his hamstring. He walk off the pitch so hopefully he can recover for the later rounds.

  24. Amazing. Give Aguero 45 mins in one game here and we can add him to the injury list. These two players…..I am lost for words.
