how crazy is it in mexico right now?

i live in california but my sisters are in puerto vallarta rn and their snapchat stories look so lit
watched a dude down an entire bottle of 1942
the streets and beach are fucking packed from what i can see
this is a massive fucking deal for mexico, a country with not even 1/8 the resources that youth footballers in germany and most of the rest of the EU have

I see what you mean. But you have to keep in mind that Argentina was 2nd at last WC and their current teamroster isn't bad at all.
Messi plays against the best teams in the world a lot, and in these games he can make a difference almost all the time. Thats what ppl expected him to do this WC as well. To do unbelievable things. Messi just being good isn't the Messi we know..

he literally had less touches in the first half than their keeper. coach wanted to run the offense through messi, players failed to get the ball to messi. it's like a venn diagram with nothing in the middle except tears and depression

also the messi/argentina thing isn't as straightforward as either side is making it out to be

on the one hand, jorge sampaoli massively tinkered with the lineup at a bad time, the argentine midfield got completely bossed, and none of their center backs other than otamendi could pass out of the back, so it's definitely true that service was not good. the team as a whole was disjointed.

on the other hand, messi spent half the game walking around rather than pressing (which the rest of argentina were doing), routinely ran directly up to other players to receive the ball rather than actually working to draw the defense out of position, and generally had terrible body language/failed to communicate as a captain. when caballero made that howler, it was a diff argentinian player (meza or perez? not sure) who went to console him, and who ran back to the center circle and tried to restart play on a positive note. messi spent the whole time sulking.

I've maintained for years that messi is clearly better than ronaldo, and it's not even a debate, so it pains me to admit this, but there's no way you'd ever see ronaldo that disengaged in the performance of his international team, particularly when given the armband. in fact, look at the earlier portugal games (such as the relatively ugly affair vs morocco) and you'll see someone trying his ass off and shouting orders/encouragement to his team

and Germany just showed what its like to consistently be one of the best in the world. Down a man with only 10 players and they had all the pressure.

They followed up with what I consider the best Free Kick in the whole 2018 World Cup so far (including Ronaldo's) for the game winner. What a fucking game between Germany and Sweden
