Serves them right. They showed amazing arrogance throughout. After winning the first game, they gave the impression that they would only have to turn up to beat England, because England hadn't won against them for twenty years. Having lost, they then appeared to imply that beating Sweden would be easy, saying that they were looking forward to beating England in the semi-final - as if there's any guarantee either side would get that far.

I watched the highlights after the England game, and Gonzalez should have been sent off for a professional foul on Larsson, but incredibly the ref booked him for diving. As for their goal, Crespo was encroaching so much on the penalty (he was level with the taker when it was kicked) it should have been disallowed anyway. Plus Sweden hit the bar.

No, I've no sympathy with them whatsoever. Their whole attitude was wrong. After the England game they refused to swap shirts, and two of them were shouting at Paul Scholes, calling him "bastardo" in the interview area after the game. They are sore losers, and believe they have a divine right to be in the final.

I do feel sorry for the Argentine fans though. They're having a tough time off the pitch as well, and we all know that football success lifts the country.

Things are getting easier and easier for Brazil to win the world cup, the only problem being the possibility of Italy in the final...

Yes, yes, and yes. What has become of that wonderful rule that the penalty box has to stay clear of players. Every single penalty in this tournament should have been repeated.

BTW, what was this red card for Caniggia who wasn´t even on the pitch? Don´t quite understand that one  Confused

Apparently Caniggia had a bit of a go at the fourth official. Not that it matters, anyway - he won't play at a World Cup again.

As for the encroaching, I quite agree. I suppose you can make an argument for saying it doesn't matter if the penatly taker scores (I don't agree though), but when it comes back of the keeper and the striker slams it in the net it's just ridiculous. By not taking action all the defenders will now also rush into the box and the whole thing will get very, very silly.

As Gary Lineker pointed out, it meant that the Argentine side were reduced to 11 men! Big grin

According to Claudio Caniggia, Argentina shouldn't be out of the World Cup (true, but it's their own fault), were unlucky (to an extent) and are much better than the other three teams (only one of whom they managed to beat, and one of whom beat them), which is just an incredible thing to say.

Being magnanimous in victory is one thing, being arrogant when you've been eliminated is something else!

Argentina didn't deserve to go through, they were out-classed by good attacking play from the other teams. Its been said here, that England only play well against better opposition. I think thats true, because they played crap against Nigeria, played very well against Argentina, and played well against Sweden until it looked like we would beat them too easily.

I think this opens the door for more 'real' teams like Brazil, Italy, Spain and perhaps Portugal. But at the moment Brazil are the only team who have really impressed all the way through, oh and of course Spain who won all three group games (?).

Bring on Denmark!!! Although I think they are probably stronger than us, but if we can pull it off then we can probably give the Brazilians a good run for their money.

Italy, Spain and Brasil remain as favourites. Not Germany and England, they are not good enough.

Well, I just watched the highlights of Argentina.v.Sweden, and Sweden were damn unlucky!! Nice goal to start, then Larsson was taken out by the last man, which was an automatic red-card, and he got booked for diving!! Then Ortega dived in the penalty area and won a penalty, then the pen was saved, but scored on the follow up.

Sweden shoulda won 2 or 3, same as England should've.
