We are likely to have a taste of the standard of World football for the first time in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The tension filled opener of Bafana Bafana vs Mexico was a cut above the drool of France against Uruguay. The group would understandably cautious with all four teams in that group not wanting to risk the point they have.
This afternoon’s fixture, the Super Eagles and Argentina is likely to be an open attacking affair. Depending on which Lionel Messi turns up today, we may see a fiesta of goals. The Argentinian Messi has not taken responsibilty like the Barcelona one. It could be he was saving himself for this stage. Even at his best though, I will not put my money on him unlocking the Super Eagles without reparcations. Joseph Yobo is always on call. Yekubu and Okamwinje will be a thorn in the flesh.
I admit, it will be an array of stars of Argentina against the pride of Africa. At this level, stardom doesn’t count for much, unless it’s an awesome talent Diego Maradona displayed in 1986. I wait to hear your contribution.
