  1. “Finally “pedophiles’ can wake up from their dream worlds. Only Dybala and maybe Icardi are NT-materials right now (1993+)”.

    Why you judging by this potential of our young generation after our second set?
    Do not manipulate facts, man.

    You know very well that we have still behind DYbala, Icardi, Lanzini, J.Correa, Tagliafico, Mammana, Cervi, Kranevitter, Escalante, Vietto, Ruiz, Cartabia

    so why you are judging also players that aren’t in RIo?
    Besides some of the Olimpic players are NT material too. I the near future.
    First of all I see weakness of coach.

  2. I think we lost because:

    – The coach has little experience and had so little time with the team
    – The best players, i.e. Dybala, Icardi, Kranevitter, etc were not available

    I hate to say it but I’m not terribly disappointed because I had low expectations to begin with.

  3. Rulli has made a mistake and will pay for it…people are happy about this.
    I don’t expect anything from this team. The best players aren’t there and even if they were I would not expect anything.
    Because our team is surrounded with a lot of negative and bad things, don’t blame the players.
    Every tournament will treat as it is lost, expectations will be low by activating my self defense mechanism.
    If we actually lose then I have already made my peace earlier. If we win then it is a overly pleasant surprise.
    I suggest you to do the same, it saves you a lot of suffering.
    The self defense mechanism is free, jut try it.

    • I understand you are very sad, so am I…I think supporters are not happy to see Rulli consuming such goals..we had a lot of expectations from Rulli..and thought he can replace Romero..when something like this happens we the arg supporter gets frustrated..in fusutartion we say so many things..

      • Too many negative and bad things are lurking over our teams(All of them), we are in shambles right now so I think it is too much to expect from them if we think they are going to win. I hope they win the next games and go as far as possible.

    • why seniors would play this team , they would have played portugal senior team and they are current euro champions…who in this team we think is equal to renato sanchez..no one….our coach said he wants to spoil brazils party…these type of statement comes from ignorance and over confidence…he should focus on each and every game rather thinking of spoiling someone else’s party.

  4. Finally “pedophiles’ can wake up from their dream worlds. Only Dybala and maybe Icardi are NT-materials right now (1993+). Only without Masch and Messi it can be a catastrophe in Qualif.
    Rulli is a keeper with great reflexes, but these bloopers are his signature.

    • very much dis-heartened to see this argentina..calleri not nt material..soto showed promise…pavon poor…cannot even keep a volley within the doal where there is no marker to disturb..for Rulli nothing to say…if such doals are consumed in any form of the game forget winning any match…people wanted rulli against romero..anyways..i am really sad today

  5. Portugal played a better game than us; much more composed and better passing.
    There were few flashes of talent, already it is clear this team doesn’t come close to the ones in 2004 and 2008. At least we do not have to worry about losing another final. We need to win next 2 matches to advance. That won’t be easy unless we play like in the last 20 minutes.

    It’s too early too judge players, but Correa is a disgrace for the number 10 shirt IMHO.

    • agreed the no 10 is the seared shirt and for me cor is not at all worthy of it. he has a lot to do for me and should not be in the senior teams 23 squad at all.
      their is a reason sim got rid of him and sim so far is correct in doing so.

    • morning shows the day..people cannot even shoot at goal on volley..also spellbound to see Rulli consuming such a goal..with improvement also this team is not arg future..

  6. Correa loves the ball too much. Bring in Lo Celso! Also Calleri and Espinoza have been a waste of oxygen so far. Simeone Jr maybe?

  7. Our link up play don’t existence, cannot make 3 passes successively. Midfield is very weak forward, and strikers are selfish. Only Gomez is good.
    Lo Celso is a MUST, and Lucas Romero is far better passer than Ascacibar too.
    This is shit so far, only individuals. Olarticoechea is a clown, match after match his lineups get worse and worse.
