Argentina looked literally incapable of defending any long ball what so ever.

So you mean to say Argentinas real golden chance would have been nullified by Iceland's hypothetical one.

It's a 90 minute football match, one moment doesn't change everything.

They lost the game because they (including Messi) weren't good enough over 90 mins and had more enough of the ball to change that but couldn't.

A missed penalty is just the footnote on the performance overall.

That's true to be fair. They also lost the game when Messi shot that freekick into the wall and they also lost the game when Messi skied that freekick and they lost the match when Messi ruined a promising counter attack when he ran into a single defender who was barely moving.
It's not just the pen.


Of course, i never said he was great. Just that his team mates shifted all the responsibility on to him.

Messi is 20 yards away and marked by another player where as another player is next to me and open? Nah pass to Messi anyway Laughing

Lack of balls on display was disgusting. They could learn a lot from good lad Pavon, at least he tried to do something.

Oh I actually agree with that. His team mates are horrible. It's hard to understand tbh. I could understand a 20 year old talent playing like that but some of these guys are proper superstars and still all they do is pass to Messi.

Like I said, everyone not barca/argentina fan will admit the issue. Other than BC who knows exactly what is wrong. There is clearly a problem and it has been a problem over the last 10 years.

Blaming the FA, players, coaches, managers, media can only take you so far.

Even in avengers infinity war it boiled down to one moment when thor didn't aim for the head.

Messi failed to convert the penalty. his team lost.

That's the reason i'm not going to be too critical of him, his team mates just stood around and hoped he could win the game for them and he couldn't.

How can you show balls when they the rest of the team is neutered to ensure Messi is the be all and end all? All this has been deliberate from start to finish and now you want some individualism? Argentina cannot have it both ways. In any case, Lionel is not the problem, making everything about him is.

Totally agreed with RG, they are trained to do this and this is the rewards of such training.

He had a bad game today but obviously it's a typical overreaction. The fact that some are trying to imply Argentina is better off without Messi is idiotic. The only reason they ever made it to 3 finals and qualified to this WC was because of him.

I won't deny he flopped today but let's not forget the long time period (2008-12ish) when CR was a renowned big game flop and Messi was consistently clutch. CR outperforming Messi in big games the last few years (although mind you he was awful in the CL final, the biggest game of this season) doesn't erase that, it just narrows the gap.

that's why aguero has the shovel, presumably

also should be worth noting that was aguero's first WC goal ever and he is in his 30s

Exactly. Also it's unfair that he has to play with a Biglia-Mascherano midfield at NT level and Paulinho-Rakitic at club level. He did have a bad game though, but everyone does, like Kommander in the CL final.

Not suprised that the creator of this thread is the infamous, spiteful and repulsive closet Madrid fan.

Sometimes playing against big teams are easier, because you got plenty of space in their defense. Small teams are pain in the ass. All of them will park the bus against Argentina and surround Messi with 4 players. This is the downside of being highly rated top team

Aside from all the things, i think CR's hat-trick before Argentina match affected Messi. Studies show that sleeping angry affects your energy level, performance and mood. If Argentina played before Portugal, we would see different Messi. Basically that hat-trick ruined Messi and i dont think Messi will be back in top form in this tournament again. Very unlucky schedule for messi and argentina.
Next match again portugal plays 1 day before argentina and if CR shines (scores hat trick) it puts big pressure on Messi and there is no time to recover
