How incredibly unprofessional football in South America is.

11 October 2008: Kevin Kuranyi is in the stands for a World Cup qualifier, almost 2 years before the World Cup was scheduled, and left the stadium at half time with his team comfortably winning 2-0. He wasn't the team captain. Result: Loew said he would never again nominate him to play for the NT, and he kept this promise.

27 March 2018: A few months before the World Cup, Argentinian captain Messi is watching Spain vs Argentina, with his team losing 6-1 and leaves the stadium. The captain abandons ship. The captain, who was supposed to be the one helping the coach remedy the situation, talk to his teammates, help improve morale etc, abandoned ship. Result: nothing, absolute nothing.

It's basic management that Messi needs to at least be stripped of captaincy. The players need to know that no player, not even Messi, is bigger than the national team. Instead they opt to instill an atmosphere of resentment and lower team spirit. Argentina's chances of lifting the World Cup trophy just took a huge dent, methinks. Team spirit is the single most important factor in tournaments like this, and Germany keep proving it every 4 years (or 2 if you count the Euro), and Argentina managed to make a mess out of it, because they consider Messi untouchable, and he can do whatever the f**k he wants apparently.

Something tells me by the way you are barking at the wrong tree that you have no clue as to what is going on behind closed doors.

And at the end of the day, Argentina failed to meet expectations at the World Cup. I still think Argentina should have showed that no player is bigger than the country and as captain you should not abandon ship.

Pobres(Boca) contra ricos(River). Once they used to be friendly clubs both founded by Italian immigrants in the same neighborhood, but when it had become too tight for two clubs in La Boca, River lost the match, ie Boca won for staying in the neighborhood, everything started to change.

The match is at 20:00 CET. It's gonna be awesome! Due to time difference, I rarely can watch Brazilian, Argentinian and Chilean football and derbies. When I was younger and a student 6-7 years ago, I knew sometimes to watch, on Friday or for the weekend from Saturday to Sunday when I stayed at home, their leagues and matches.

Really good game that. Not a great deal of quality but a close and intense battle. Don't see a lot of SA football as it isn't shown here much but this one being such a massive game between two iconic clubs was shown on BT Sport. Can't wait for the 2nd leg
