Jagielka is easily our best centre-back these days.
We look pretty bad atm, only Rooney and Gerrard seem to be able to create anything and pass the ball accurately more than 10 metres, and our left-side is non existant, meaning everything we have going forward is ending up with Milner getting the ball down the right. Ugh.
Edit: Gerrard cross, Rooney goal.

Actually, the formation is more like 4-2-4.
Argentina were fairly awful. Worst i've seen them play in ages. Chile ran the game, particularly before the first goal, played some great football, found acres of space in between Argentina's defenders. Sanchez, Medel and particularly Isla all had great games and they should've scored a couple in the first half. Di Maria was practically playing left-back at times and saved a certain goal, Zabaleta was torn apart by Isla all night long.
Doesn't matter though. Argentina's attack is just by far the best in international football. Messi with outrageous composure for the first goal, and Higuain's finish for the second was brilliant, with 3 players around him and on his weaker foot. Could've even scored a couple more if Aguero hadn't hit the post and if Fernandez was alive to Messi's disguised pass off that free kick.

Didn't see the game, but baffling he took the PK over Alonso and Cazorla, who usually take them for Spain when Villa isn't playing.
-> always buries his penalties as well.
Also I bet Joel was fapping at Brazil. Oscar was superb, again.
