Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

The formation of 4-3-3 isn't working for Argentina because, as Rockhead pointed out, Argentina don't have the midfield strength of Barcelona. What makes it worse is that--Argentina is trying to play like Barcelona, with their ordinary midfield. The formation isn't working. The players are keeping the ball for way too long. They just cling on to the ball even when they should be passing. We had 4 strikers up front in the last 20 minutes, but we could barely manage to bother the Colombian goalkeeper. Argentina is sorely missing Riquelme in the midfield.

We should be sporting a 4-4-2 or a 4-1-2-1-2 (preferred) formation. The defense and goalkeeper were surprisingly good today. It's the midfield that failed us and obviously, we saw some flashes from Messi, but we also saw arguably the worst freekick ever--taken by Messi.

In the 4-2-2 formation, we could make use of both Di Maria in the left and Pastore in the central midfield role. The right winger position could be filled by Lavezzi or Aguero, with Messi and Tevez up front. In the 4-1-2-1-2 formation, we could have Pastore and Di Maria in the two RM/LM positions, with Messi in the CAM/CF and Tevez with Higuian/Aguero/Milito at the front. These formations suit Argentina the best, especially the 4-1-2-1-2 formation. 4-3-3 isn't working at all.

In the next game, which is must win for Argentina, I hope we play Pastore and Di Maria because both add midfield strength (especially Pastore), with an attacking flair (Di Maria).

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Romero saved Argentina, don't know what is happening to them, I know their defense is average but it was only about 4-5 months ago they actually kept the ball and started to look like a second Spain

Even Brazil's midfield to me is very average, where is the creativity?

I am cheering for Chile in this tournament btw

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Depending on how Brazil play in their next game, Chile might be my pick to win as well. They might have been up against a Mexico C Team but they showed the best brand of attacking football in the tournament so far.

Even in the WC, they played good football. I think Batista is getting it wrong. And Pastore not playing is fail.
