    Saudia Arabi is working over Argentina. Its pretty remarkable. They are playing like there is no tomorrow.

    You just have to see the highlights no amount of me talking about it will do it justice.

    the Saudi Defense is crazy.

    We got Martin Tyler down here in Aus, he gave it the enthusiasm it deserved.

    Argentina just did not show up in the second half, that was possibly the craziest first 20 minutes of a half I've watched in the WC

    Al-Dawsari's goal is probably the greatest highlight in Saudi sport history..

    I would say that guy will never have to buy a beer at the pub ever again but....

    Homie was ready to kill his own players to save the game. It was nuts. He almost killed his guy going for the ball.

    Messi side always with the weak crosses that find no one or just harmless high headers.

    First goal was a rather unclear penalty and came way too early.

    2 offside goals by Messi and Lautaro in the first half.

    Saudis efficient with limited chances and good shooting technique.

    That Saudi goalie saved the day several times. Poor Messi. But Argentina still looked good. They just got beat by a team that showed plenty of quality including making the post shake several times. Saudi was the better team.

    Going back to the US game...

    This is another Berhalter f*** up. He was trying to see out the game from a way too early point. And then to bring in Jordan Morris over Gio Reyna is a mistake I can't even begin to comprehend. Zimmerman's tackle on Bale was misguided but he and Ream ultimately played very well. My concern about the 2 of them against England is the speed aspect. But I think we need both of them in to win the aerial battles.

    I think Aaronson will need to start this game over Musah (or McKinney if he's hurt). We need him harrassing the hell out of Harry Maguire. Their back line is not fast. I think we can press them into mistakes and counter them well. Just have to remain disciplined on defense and not allow Bellingham and Saka to run free. I'm not concerned with Sterling and I think Ream can shut down Kane (as he did against Haaland just a couple weeks ago). Clearly Matt Turner is a better shot stopper than that garbage Iran put out but he's going to have to really step it up. Minimize the mistakes and take advantage of the opportunities given and we can win this game.

    Argentina is celebrating that Mexico and Poland tied.

    Mexican fans are pretty trashy, likes to chant their favorite gay slur
