No Argentina Lost and Germany Scraped Through
What was pekerman thinking ? Any child will tell you that when a team and that too a host team is down by a goal, all they would do is to attack, attack and attack with renewev energy having the home crowd behind them. That being the case what was Pekerman thinking when he substituted Riquelme ? That he can get away by scoring a goal and then defend ? What kind of a silly tactic is that ? And what happened to Messi ? Who the **** is Cruz ? Some real questions for which Pekerman better have some answers. A dominant but hesistant first half, a pretty good and decent second half till the time they scored goal and then boom ! Out goes Crespo and Riquelme and in comes some total unknown designed to defned the goal. As long as they do not attack, no one can hope to win the game.
Thus, it was not that Germany won the game, the argentines gifted it to them on a platter !
