    The part of me who just "wants to watch the world burn" would like to see Iran beat Argentina.

    Argentina more in-sync and much more threatening than last game.

    Messi being manmarked by at least 3 guys every play, so anything that goes through him invariably opens up space somewhere else - hence he's been able to find Zabaleta to his right almost every time.

    But, can't do much when Iran parks dat der bus of 11 men in front of goal.


    So bad you culés want him.

    Iran is indeed playing a good defensive match.

    Why are Argentina bothering with defenders?

    If this ends on a draw, and Nigeria and Bosnia draw, then Iran draws against Bosnia and Argentina win against Nigeria , Iran advance !

    Iran did have that one stellar chance on the counter attack. This could have easily been 1-0 Iran with the mighty Argentinian striking machine all gummed up so far

    I thought Iran had made it safe - great effort on their part.

    Woah

    Messi saves them. That's what he's there for.

    Iran played so good. Extremely frustrating defense and Those counterattacks were gorgeous - this totally could have been three points for them

    No way we deserved three points there. Iran played an amazing game, and it's a shame they're not taking a point from this.

    Messi. You conflict me. All match I'm shouting at the screen about your abominable work rate, and then you go and take that one chance and hit the winner. :decisions:

    Sabella, WTF are you doing pulling Hig and Kun when you need that breakthrough goal?

    , higuain an kun weren't doing much. We needed some fresh legs. No sense keeping guys on the field if they aren't giving the team what it needs. This team needs to fricking move. You can't just stand waiting for the ball to miraculously find its way to you.

    Ghana putting up a very solid fight. Making me a bit nervous for Germany.
