Im glad im half mexican and half spaniard.. Mexico is the best in its region and España is the best in there region.. I know that both of my countries can beat Argentina. The only threats are Brazil, Holand, and Ivory Coast! Viva la Furia Roja y Viva La Fuerza Azteca!

Argie62 I have doubt that Argentina has great players and the best one in the world in Messi. With the head case, I mean head coach depending on the group they get they may not even make it out of the first round.

"It was a tight match that we could have lost well before extra time. We never gave up, and that stood to us at the end. When you're a goal down, and you're hitting the crossbar and missing chances, it can feel like it's just not your day." Kwang Jong Lee, Korea Republic coach
