While there is no doubt truth in what you say, Ze, there is more to Argentina's relative failure at the World Cup than meets the eye. Well the truth is that Argentina chose not to participate in 38, 50 and 54. One of the main reasons for this was the poaching of Argentinian talent by primarily Italians. The Italian team that won in 34 and 38 had three Argies in the squad: Luisito Monti, Raimondo Orsi and Enrico Guaita.Ze da Fiel said:Garrincha,
It's probably that without the help of generals or Maradona, argentina are nothing in World Football..
Did you know that from 1934 to 1974 they only reached the quarter finals TWICE, and never reached the SEMIS.
If you take Maradona's appereances in those pathetic tems (with the excpetion of 94)...... Argenitna 's perfomances have been really lame in World cups.
Considering that Montivideo is almost home also....there ercrd is even worst!
Just pure jealousy, as he can't get one line in none of his favourite players, as they must be all crying, waiting for the next humiliation in a world cup..... after all they have no more Maradona or generals to hlep them out!:tongue:
Your undestanding of what the 'worst team' is must be compromised by Argentina's pathethic and laughable performance in this World Cup. We have two of the top goalscorers in the tournament, we're in the semifinals, with six players among the best of the Cup.Assassin said:Garincha...don't be so happy about your lame team dude, till now they are the worst team in this world cup...along side with Korea...
Hey, great job at predicting the future. And who's going to be at the finals against Korea - Argentina?Assassin said:(...)I will tell you who is going to win it, KOREA.
By this rationale I gather you think Argentina from WC '86 suckked? They were the worst team, right? Because the ref helped them. And if the teams who gets helped are always "the worst" Argentina didn't deserve their 1986 title. Is that what you're saying? :rolleani:Assassin said:simply coz in my books the team who wins by refs help is the worst , if it is better than the other team I do not think it would need the refs help.
