I'm not sure he would've saved the game, but he could be enough of a distraction to make things difficult for Germany. I think in the last game he played, he was attracting 4 defenders when he had the ball. I think without the GK's injury, we're looking at a different result -not only on PKs but even on the German goal.

Thats what I'm talkin bout , I know he's 19 Pablo , in fact you see today I'm turning 20 , and I look at that guy , and I tell everyone , you see that hairy kid , younger than me , still the best player of Argentina .

When I meant he would kill the game , it wouldnt be necessarily to get in do like Pele , but he wouldnt certainly save a lot of time and give some headaches to the german's defense

great start... 1-0

and then, 35 minutes of


if Italy can play like the first 10 minutes for a whole game, they should be champions... but they don't


it's actually really stresing to see a World Cup and really can't sheer for anyone, because, up to this point, no one deserves it...

Slow down mate , Italy got some good chances as well , but just coz they played a bit good it doesnt mean they can beat some teams that still didnt play 70% of what they can

A bit too much diving from the Italians in the first half, but man.....have they got everything under control?

This is Italy at their very best. Imagine if they could control the game against the Germans in the same way on tuesday

The best Italian team I've seen in a very long time. Hope they can keep up in the second half!

I fully agree, and just saw this commentary on Skysports.com:



Quote:
However, with the game entering a crucial stage, Pekerman made a host of baffling changes - opting to leave wonder kid Lionel Messi on the sidelines.

Pekerman did have his hands tied in that he was forced into bringing on Leo Franco for injured keeper Roberto Abbondanzieri after 72 minutes, but he still had one change left up his sleeve.

Rather bizarrely he took off Hernan Crespo, who had not had a sniff up front and ran his socks off, for the ineffective Julio Cruz.

...

Messi would have torn Germany apart, as he did when impressing off the bench against Mexico last weekend, but it was not to be as Argentina crashed out on penalties.
