It's a disgrace, says Maradona as he slams Argentina coach

It's a disgrace, says Maradona as he slams Argentina coach

"We'll play a good game against Argentina". He was part of the team in 1998 which eliminated England on penalty kicks, was there for the heartbreak of 2002 and the lost to the Germans in 2006 in Berlin.

But if Argentina themselves are embarrassed by such attention on their finest ever player, they will be also be red-faced by their stumbling stalemate with Iceland in their group opener today.

Ronaldo's Portugal meet Morocco next, while Messi's Argentina have a much more hard task against Croatia.

"I believe that on the wings of this win we will up our game and continue our journey in the way that we planned before coming here". Perhaps the best we've had, with big stars playing at Real, Barca and Juventus.

Messi denied that the draw would affect the team in its next Group D contest Thursday against Croatia, adding that "we have some days to rest and get well-prepared for the match".

Government acts to make ‘upskirting’ a specific offence
Victims said a specific law prohibiting the craze was necessary as current legislation was often insufficient to prosecute an offender.

"In the Argentina against Iceland game we saw just how much Messi needed the warm-up game against Israel", Liberman tweeted Saturday after Argentina and Iceland ended with a 1-1 draw.

Their disciplined, defensive tactics frustrated an Argentina side who enjoyed the majority of possession and they also carried a threat going forward from the start, with Birkir Bjarnason scuffing a glorious early chance. With what he said after the Iceland match and the fact he took the blame, you can expect a more engaged and eager club.

"To save a penalty in the first game of the World Cup is like a dream scenario. And to do it against a top team like Spain is even more precious", Ardiles wrote.

"I think these young players need time to learn, sometime they were a little bit naive on the set pieces but we will work on it". The only one that doesn't look certain, unfortunately, is Argentina.
