I totally disagree with some of you guys. This is because Argentina was in control throughout the game until the rain caused the ball not move at all where it suited Honduras with long ball and shooting. And can I ask Mr pocoloco (canada), where did you get the physical game of Argentina from as that was what let them down towards the end of the game. In fact to confirm for your information, Argentina has never played a physical game in any level and I would love to hear one from you.

The level of Argentine football is to me on a kind of decline. Hopefully not permanent, but I just haven't seen the same level of play from them recently. And while yes they did win here today, the Hondurans did well to hold them.
