As a South American is devastating to see our teams losing, but Peru was an illusion (now gone) Colombia incertitude, Brazil hope, and Argentina a miracle because they didn’t deserve to be there and Croatia showed us why today.
Argentina came into their second group stage game against Croatia today needing to bounce back from a frustrating, leaden 1-1 draw with Iceland. Instead, they got run off the pitch by a determined Croatia side, who spanked them 3-0 thanks to two horrifying defensive errors and one moment of world-class precision from Luka Modrić.
Argentina now face the very real possibility of a first-round exit, and they need several games to break their way in order to limp out of Group D. Whether or not that happens, let us not forget: this Argentina side is full of frauds, they’ve all let Lionel Messi down, and they deserve to go home. I was actually happy that Croatia kicked their butts.
I also celebrate the determination of Japan and Iceland.
It’s time to change the game. Congrats Croatia!!!!
