Mauro Icardi scoring a penalty for Inter.

Mauro ICARDI scored two while Lautaro MARTINEZ missed one for Inter in their penalty shootout lost against Lazio.

With the score at 0-0 and the match in extra time, Ciro IMMOBILE gave Lazio the lead with a goal in the first half of extra time. At the 120+5 mark, Inter were awarded a penalty and up stepped the captain. ICARDI made no mistake, shooting to the goalkeepers left side and scoring.

The match now in extra time, ICARDI once more took a spot kick and this time with a panenka penalty scored. It was Lautaro’s turn to shoot but his penalty was saved. Lazio would go on to win the match.

  1. Throw in Messi, Icardi will start banging goals…
    Suarez is lazy…
    Aguero > Batigol
    Higuain > Batigol
    LOL!!!
    Mundo doesn’t fail to amuse you in anyway. Each day it keeps on getting better. Gem after gem.
    The constant crying of millenial babies and diva fan boys: Scaloni this , Scaloni that. Aguero, Banega,Rojo and rest of the “divas” this and that. Whoscored and Reddit comments/ratings this and that. Fifa and PES ratings this and that. Probability this and that.
    There’s no need to explain to the “divas fanclub” about anything as if it would give them any footballing sense, but still posting this anyway:
    1. Scaloni is tactically clueless and knows only how to park the bus
    These bunch of “diva” fanboys wants instant success. Sexy football overnight, solid defense overnight. They don’t care about anything. They think it’s a playstation game. Like football is played on paper. Pipe dreams like throwing star names would automotically guarantee trophies.

    It took Sabella a great deal of time to fix the defence which was our Achilles heel since this century and implement a counter attacking system. Neither of them were fixed overnight. Needless to say even after two years defence looked shaky. Slowly but gradually he built a strong defensive unit. I can’t remember how many games it took before we started seeing a fluent counter attacking display. It certainly took way more than 6 games.

    Scaloni had to do it from scratch , thanks to Tata Martino and his successors who had undone all the good work of Sabella. He inherited a mess. A team with no identity at all. It needed a complete overhaul. In fact it wasn’t a team at all after Sabella went, just a group of 11 divas who took “National Team” place as an “obligation” rather than “invitation” (like Menotti pointed out).
    And it’s only been 6 games. It’s literally nothing in international football considering the monumental amount of work Scaloni has to do in that short period of time. The selection being the main priority here. Giving players who were unfairly denied selection in the past a new chance was a big step. And experimenting the friendlies rather than treating them as “a cup final” is a refreshing and promising aspect. Those complaining (rather childishly) about the park the bus tactics need to know that he only employed that tactic in one game; that too against a far superior side, well balanced and well oiled. That was indeed the sensible move, a game we couldn’t afford to lose. In fact it worked almost perfect, limiting a superior side(playing together for almost 2 and a half years) to few clearcut oppurtunities. Brazil never looked like scoring, beating that stubborn Argentina defence. We too had our moments in goal but failed to take the oppurtunity. In that game Scaloni showed his tactical flexibility unlike most of Argentina’s recent managers who were intransigent. Against Gautemala, against Colombia, against Iraq and against Mexico it wasn’t park-the bus at all; and how could you say Scaloni is just park the bus tactician for one game of football?
    It’s just 6 games and it was all about experimenting(priority no.1 atleast). He’s doing the right things right now and is trying to build a “team” finally with a system( with the “right players” not just “star names”) rather than revolving around an individual. It needs time. It won’t happen overnight like some dream.

    PS: You guys should understand that club and international football are two different things(in modern era). There’s a gulf in quality between those two.

    • “In fact it wasn’t a team at all after Sabella went, just a group of 11 divas who took “National Team” place as an “obligation” rather than “invitation”

      Could you please name those ’11 divas’

    • > Throw in Messi, Icardi will start banging goals…lol

      so funny loololl hahahah lol hahaha jajjaajja.

      > Mundo doesn’t fail to amuse you in anyway. Each day it keeps on getting better. Gem after gem.

      yes, your comments are gems….keep em coming.

      > Scaloni is tactically clueless and knows only how to park the bus

      Yes Scaloni aka Mr Training Wheels is clueless so far. there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that he’s a great tactical coach. you’re living in a fantasy world filled with assumptions about what Scaloni “might be a few year”. come back to reality and acknowledge facts…low possession, no attacking cohesion, no attacking threat., piss poor passing. All this led to poor results against garbage team and we played horrible against the better ones. Im basing an option on facts, you’re living on pluto. You’re probably one of few twits that think we should throw away chances at copa and focus on the 22 WC. just amazing.

  2. Aguero vs Icardi fight is clueless, one is at career last best moment where other is yet to reach at his best, currently both Aguero and Icardi are in the top5 striker in the world and as a Argentinian fan we should feel proud for both instead of fighting, what’s put icardi ahead of Aguero is Age and Hunger

      • I love both. Icardi lack of goals is mostly on Scaloni. The entire attack is toothless and classic poacher like icardi cannot thrive. Throw Messi in the mix and we’ll see icardi banging in goals. I still think Kun has the edge though.

  3. Some are saying Aguero is lazy,not anymore,he has transformed himself a year before.He is the best center forward on the world right now with playmaker skills

    • If anyone, Luis Suarez is lazy.
      Higuain is Lazy.
      Lukaku is lazy.

      Not Aguero.
      He is one of the best 9’s and false 9’s in the Premier League. Of course, He’s no Messi in that role, but he’s very good at it as well.

      Seems Argentinians are the only ones that can decently play that role.

  4. Banega is playing well in LA liga that penalty was not weak but was a good save.Even he assisted one goal.But when Messi shines with team that become another thing.

  5. Aguero is 10 time better than Icardi…but the fact is that a lot of mundo people hates oldies.they are very contradicts supperter ,just judge a player by watching one or two good matches (if he is young) ,then he is a national team material.Their (not all) thinking is pure ignorant shit & full of contradictions.

  6. “Argentina played Messi, Dybala, Icardi to save WC Campiagn, nothing”

    Aguero scored only five goals in 2017&2018 put together. Where has he been hiding all those years? 😂

    Right now Icardi is light years ahead of Aguero and that’s undebatable for me, man. I know, lazy Aguero can score goals for Man Shitty but he can’t score goals for Argentina!

    • Aguero contribute more than higuain, i don’t see Aguero missed penalty or missed clear cut chances for Argentina only his injury cost not forget Aguero is best Argentina player in 2018 WC who wasn’t used properly though

    • See, the difference between my argument and yours, is I am using FACTS, not opinion.
      And the stats show, for TWO YEARS, Aguero has produced more than Icardi for the National Team.
      That is a FACT!

      Icardi has NOTHING on Aguero.

      Aguero has won
      – 3 Premier League Trophies
      – 3x English League Cup Winner
      – 1 Europa League
      – 1 Uefa Super Cup
      – 2x English Supper Cup Winner
      Oh thats with Man City, he has not won anything with Argentina!
      You sure about that?
      – 2x Under 20-World Cup Champion
      – 1x Olympic Gold Medalist with Argentina
      FUN FACT: Argentina have NOT won the U-20 World Cup since 2007, where Aguero (THE CAPTAIN) scored against the Czech Republic. So good luck this year U-20 squad!

      Icardi has YET to win a trophy in General, for anything LOL

      NO COMPARISON

      Aguero>>>>>>>>>>>>Icardi

      • Icardi is new to the team and came when the team was in its worst form and that is a fact that you are ignoring all the time. He tried his best to gel with the players and he never dissapointed. Argentina was defeated by Venezuela if it weren’t for Icardi’s positioning and pressure to their defense. If we LOST that game we would’ve said good bye to the WC.

        The team needed Icardi badly at the WC but baldy ignored him for reasons we all know. This guy is fitter, younger, and dangerous infront of the goal than Aguero.

        He didn’t score like a zillion goals for Argentina but he already opened his goalscoring account for the NT and will likely score 3 folds of What Aguero scored for Albiceleste if he is given the time and support.

        Coming back to Aguero, Scoring five goals in two whole years is what we expect from defenders not strikers.

        “See, the difference between my argument and yours, is I am using FACTS, not opinion”

        Your argument is a lame one since you don’t have any excuse for Aguero’s misfiring in entire two years.

        “Aguero has won
        – 3 Premier League Trophies
        – 3x English League Cup Winner
        – 1 Europa League
        – 1 Uefa Super Cup”

        Is this also part of your lame argument? Man, we are talking about Argentina, not Man City or Inter.

        • “Your argument is a lame one since you don’t have any excuse for Aguero’s misfiring in entire two years.”

          Ummmmm… That was a two year comparison for BOTH players.
          In TWO years, Aguero Scored Five Goals, Icardi ONE goal in TWO YEARS!
          Aguero played 9 games, from 20117-2018, and Icardi played 7 from 2017-2018!
          If Aguero is scoring like a defender, then what is Icardi? Scoring as a Goalkeeper? LOL

          “Argentina was defeated by Venezuela if it weren’t for Icardi’s positioning and pressure to their defense. If we LOST that game we would’ve said good bye to the WC.”
          LOL I’m Done!!! That’s your argument for him? LOL

          “and will likely score 3 folds of What Aguero scored for Albiceleste if he is given the time and support.”
          LOL! So he needs to be carried your saying? Not him carrying the team?
          For Inter he has 9 goals and 2 Assists in 18 games. Impressive right?
          Well, Aguero has 11 goals and 6 assists in 20 games!
          Aguero does not only score, he creates!
          Aguero HELPS THE TEAM, unlike Icardi, where the TEAM HELPS HIM!

          So Aguero is greater than Icardi, in goals, and in assists. He’s an all around foward.

          And he scored 2 of the six goals Argentina had in the WC. 1/3 of the goals was from Aguero.
          Won the U-20 for Argentina TWICE, and a Gold Medal!
          He has done a lot for the NT!

          Overall
          Aguero >>>>>>>>>> Icardi
          No Argument!

          • “Ummmmm… That was a two year comparison for BOTH players.
            In TWO years, Aguero Scored Five Goals, Icardi ONE goal in TWO YEARS!”

            One was at he WC and the other wasn’t (for the wrong reasons). And two of those five goals came at the WC. Are you comparing them?

            Truth be told, I stopped reading your comment halfway through. I thought you knew what you are talking about, but it’s obvious yoi have no idea of the stuff you are talking about. Hope you come up with a very strong excuse the next time you put yourself forward for defending Aguero and the rest of the oldies.

          • “One was at he WC and the other wasn’t (for the wrong reasons). And two of those five goals came at the WC. Are you comparing them?”

            So, he scoring at a WC means he’s… bad? Scoring at the World Cup is a bad thing?
            If you score in a World Cup, logically you should be in the Countries next competition.

            So….. yEA!

            Weak Excuses? Whatever dude! I respect your opinion but if you wanna turn a blind eye to reality it’s fine. But not once did you provide a reasonable counter argument for your boy Icardi. Aguero is more successful, more dangerous, more productive than Icardi in every aspect of the game.
            And he’s the best CF Argentina has. Period!

          • Gentlemen, this argument is equivalent to the Kardashian sisters bickering over who’s diamond is shinier. Icardi and Aguero are both incredible strikers.

            Aguero is on fire and I don’t give shit about his past performance when he was plagued with injuries. Recently he scored 2 crucial goals in the world cup, easily one of our best performers in the WC…very dynamic, and lethal in front of goal.

            Icardi unfortunately hasn’t shown what he is capable of but I’d argue that’s due to dogshit attacking tactics by Scaloni. Icardi is the most efficient striker in Europe and our team was incapable of providing service. Messi feeding icardi will be a beautiful thing!

            Overall, were lucky to have them as options. i couodnt be happier.

          • The people who doesnt know anything football just count the no of goals can think icardi is better than aguero.
            Augero always helps in the playmaking with his dribbling ablity whereas icardi come into notice only when he scores before it was like playing with 10 men.
            Aguero had given man city a premire leauge and recently what a performane against best team liver pool what icardi had done could not even able to take his team into knockout stage of CL.

    • “Right now Icardi is light years ahead of Aguero and that’s undebatable for me”

      At club Level, Aguero clearly is miles ahead of Icard.
      At NT Level which WE are concerned with, Icardi has not delivered, yet.
      Now, building a solid undebatable opinion on expectations and ‘future delivery for the NT’ is just an illusion.
      Ask 10 football fans, who are not Argentina followers which one of the two they would pick and 9 out of 10 will say Aguero. Not delivering for the NT has it’s own debacles. I would not blame any player who does not deliver for the NT but blame all the attacks in the media and the tremendous amount of pressure Argentina players are under, including Icardi.

  7. Banega misses a penalty…
    He should never be called back to the NT again!

    Lauturo misses a penalty…
    It’s fine! It happens to the best!

    Logic! It almost makes too much sense!

    You have to also take into account the keepers.
    Banega was shut out by Cillissen, a keeper who has played in a WC Semi Final, plays for one of the best teams in the World, training alongside Ter Stegen, and will play in the Nations League Semi-Final.
    Lauturo was stopped by Strakosha. You’d be lying if you say you knew who he was before the game!

    • Icardi struggles a few games to score a goal for the NT……..he had his chances and it’s over for him.

      Aguero struggles to shine for the NT…….no problem, the team needs his experience and must stay till Messi retires from the NT. What about this logic?

      At least Lautaro and the other youth are growing up and there is still room for improvement, but Banega and his friends are declining. That’s the difference, if you ask me.

      • Aguero for Argentina 2017-2018
        9 games (Chile, Bolivia, Russia, Nigeria, Haiti, Iceland, Croatia, Nigeria, France)
        5 Starts (Chile, Russia, Nigeria, Iceland, Croatia)
        5 Goals [Russia, Nigeria, Haiti (Didn’t start), Iceland, France (Didn’t start)]

        Icardi for Argentina 2017-18
        7 games (Uruguay, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico 2x)
        5 Starts (Uruguay, Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico)
        1 Goal (Mexico)

        With the same amount of starts, Aguero has produce more against bigger teams than Icardi has, with higher stakes in play. Granted he had two more appearances off the bench, but he is in decline so that shouldn’t be a factor.
        Argentina played Messi, Dybala, Icardi to save WC Campiagn, nothing.
        Argentina sub on Aguero to save WC hopes against France, scores

        Sooooooo…. yea
        Aguero > Icardi
