FIFA World Cup quarter final: Argentina vs Belgium
Argentina, the favourites for the 2014 World Cup is set to clash against the dark horses of the tournament, Belgium, who have been impressive in the tournament so far. Both teams go into the competition having won all their matches in the run up to the quarter-finals. But, one team has to sadly pack their bags after the clash tonight, irrespective of their performance so far.
One look at the
squad of both the teams reflect the depth in their squad, which is
full of star players. Argentina comprises of players such as Messi,
Di Maria, Aguero, Mascherano, just to name a few. Comparatively,
Belgium possesses some of the best world
class stars of the planet,
which includes, Lukaku, Vincent kompany, Hazard, Fellani, Mirallas
But, the game is
not an individual sport, so all these players need to get their act
together and help their team reach the semis of the competition.
Still, Argentina would depend on the world's best player to come up
with another brilliant game as has been the case in Brazil, where he
has somehow jailed the team out in the dying minutes of the game.
But Messi is not
going to find it easy against the Belgium defenders as well, who have
only conceded two goals in the entire tournament, one against Algeria
and the US. On the other hand, the Belgium defense might not have
fought a tough opposition like Argentina and Messi, who can rip apart
quality players at disposal during the match, the game is expected to
be an entertaining one, where neutrals fans in Brazil would enjoy the
game. The team, which progresses into the final four stage would
await the winner of the Netherlands and Costa Rica game, which is
scheduled later tonight.
Many claim this
World Cup to be Messi's best chance of winning the world cup medal.
Belguim stands on his way.
