Team News and Game Preview
Following a sensational loss to Saudi Arabia in the opener of the tournament, Argentina caught its pace and went on to beat Mexico and Poland with the same result, 2-0.
Leo Messi missed a penalty, but that wasn’t a problem for the Argentinians, who looked much stronger in the back line than in the past. What was their virtue over the last three years, was perfect in these two events.
Australia looks like a limited team, but Graham Arnold’s crew may be the fiercest team in the tournament. The Aussies are madly brave, and they aren’t stopping for all 90 minutes, running up and down the field.
Counter-attacks and set pieces are their strongest weapon, and pretty much all of their three goals came like that.
