Germany vs Argentina has a great history.
Prepare yourself for a real treat when these two old rivals meet.
Only 16 matches between them since 1958 – 5 of which have been World Cup games.
In 1958 Germany beat Argentina 3:1 – they won the game, but didn’t make any new friends 😉
In 1966 the teams drew 0:0 – no goals – but 32 fouls were counted in the match whereafter FIFA duly introduced the yellow & red card system and warned Argentina against their “crude pride culture” of play.
↑ Cufre vs Mertesacker
(this foul was performed AFTER the final whistle blow… 😕
(the Argentinias ABSOLUTELY HATE losing )
Germany played Argentina in a “Friendly”
on March 3, 2010
Germany was defeated 2:1 😦
Germany’s team has a much warmer (safer) home-coming waiting for them
than Argentina does – depending on who gets to go home…
If ANYBODY can teach the Argentinians a lesson in foul play – it is their own Nation 👿
(after a previous defeat in a World Cup quarter final the team had to disembark in Montevideo,
for fear of their ‘fans’ wrath in Buenos Aires 😯
In the words of their coach Diego Maradona “My Players are beasts” (I presume he means that literally too) 🙄
And Löw has his “Meine Jungs…”
I will certainly be waving this flag proudly for the ‘Boys’ tomorrow:
And maybe, just maybe it’ll be “Boys to Men” vs “Goucho go Groucho“
