  1. all the national teams are playing their style of playing is more aggressive with speed like EPL except Barcelona, Spain and Argentina. now you see even guardiola also changed style of play. finally he understood bielse system is best suited for EPL.he learned after loss with liverpool.

  2. ronaldo is more better than messi because he brought two times champions to real simultaneously. now he showing the spirit in juve. but messi only playing in Barcelona not in other teams. why?, if he is genius why don’t he play and showing his skills with other teams?

    • This is not Juventus Or Portugal forum, go brag about your christina somewhere else.
      Some of Argentina players better than your boy:

      Kempes
      Batigoal(Batistuta), guess why they called him batigoal ?
      Crespo
      Aguero
      and the great Di Stefano
      and of course Maradona and Messi top 2 players in history. You can brag all you want about Pele and others, they are miles behind. Troll.

      • For me is incomparable both players messi
        Is miles ahead of Ronaldo
        I can’t deny Rolando has fighting
        Spirite and score goals which is
        Important but messi is different level
        To anyone else in world football
        He is unbelievable and joy to watch
        You will pay millions to watch messi
        He does everything in football
        Creat chances best passer on the
        Ball best team player most beautiful
        Goal score not heads or tapping like
        Cristiano …
        Messi will win trophies for Argentina with this new generation by coach
        Gallardo ….

    • @splendor: What is that for a joke u talk … ??? In Past the Players like Totti or Pupi Zanetti had the most Respect of teammates,fans,clubs becuz they stay every year in the same clubs!! no one said ever they should change the club , never ! now cr7 goes in a Seria A to a club who wins every game in past too, they was in champ.league finals twice , without him ! and now u say messi must play in other club ?? oh damn sorry but this are words from ppl they not watch soccer ! La Liga is still the best Liga in World, why should he change to others ? all is perfect for him ! why change ? just becuz cr7 did it or the newspaper writes it ? cr7 did becuz the problems with president and the Millions he hide from State Spain – not for an other new mission πŸ˜‰ !by the way … every player wins his Liga when u play in juve,bayern or PSG , isnt difficult.

  3. I DON’T WANT SIMEONE TO COACH ARGENTINA TEAM!!!! WHAT A COWARD PIECE OF SHIT!! FROM THE FIRST WHISTLE THEY PLAYED FOR A DRAW AND THEN WAS F***D BY RONALDO. HE IS NOW MOCKING THE GESTURE BACK TO SIMEONE. ONLY HOPE NOW IF UEFA PUNISH RONALDO!!

  4. You see the difference between Dybala and Angel Correa!

    Dybala bullying desperate defenders when they’re trying to get an away goal, showing good composure and skill…
    Correa meanwhile panicking and pushing Bernadeschi inside the box with 7 minutes to go? STUPID mistake that cost Atletico Madrid!

    Anyway…
    Aguero and Otamendi are in!
    Dybala is in!
    Rojo and Romero are in!

    We’ll see if Messi can follow up!

  5. Hard to believe ATM knocked out from UCL round of 16! Ronaldo simply destroyed this team’s sprit to face tough situations, first he done with Real and now with Juve! No question, a leader and a champion.

    Simeone for Argentina 2022 WC?
    Thanks, No!
