Spent a fair amount of time in Argentina - great place but the romantic view of the country (and south America in general - especially Brazi!) is so different from the reality - couldn't live there now for long. Going to football there is something else though - the passion is insane even compared to the rest of South America. Got to keep your wits about you though - away fans are banned for example. Don't see that side of their passion during WCs though... only us and a few other nations seem to turn up with our undesirables in tow (bar this WC for obvious reasons)Just watching a recording of Argentina v Mexico. The singing from the legions of supporters for both teams was immense. Argentina brought the intensity of a Boca crowd. Loved it.
Matterface and Dixon were awful, spending 90+ minutes telling viewers how awful Argentina were. Yawn.
I was wondering if we could blame the ball but this year’s sounds legit https://www.scientificamerican.com/...-al-rihla-has-the-aerodynamics-of-a-champion/
