Listened to Sabella's press conference.
His 1st priority is to stop Germany, and everything else will progress from that.
Never underestimate Argentina's will to play from the bunker; its part of their DNA.
This however is a different German team from 1980.
I think for me the key is Di Maria's fitness. Limped out of last training, which may or may not mean anything...
If he plays, then Argentina can play from the bunker and retain an attacking threat. If he doesn't it becomes a lot more challenging...
But there is space behind whatever wide area Ozil lines up in, and he has Lavezzi to exploit it, if not Di Maria
Germany has the superior squad, but I think the qualities of this Argentina team are being underestimated a little. They have Messi afterall...
Form is temporary; Class is Permanent!
Liverpool, European Champions 2005.
We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp
