  1. First Brazil goal was a freak goal, the second Brazil goal was a penalty. Brazil physically taller and stronger. Argentina team looks technically better, good pressing but some naive loss of possession. No.15 with dyed hair looks very skillful. right at the end of the whistle, Argentine players ran after Brazilian players and there was a big fight. They handed over a cup to Argentine no 6, don’t know if it was runner- up cup or an individual one. Lot of promise in the way the Argentine kids played despite the loss.
