    Never fails to amaze me how class players become Sunday league level when they put on an Argentina shirt

    Poor draw for the Argies, should have won by a couple. They really need someone else to start scoring for them other than Messi, Martinez missed some very good chances tonight aswell as others

    Never watched any of this before. Is it as serious as the Euros? Like under normal circumstances would every game be a full house?

    Yes and there is only 2 groups! They seem to place a lot of importance on where each club finishes in their group. For example first place in Group A will play 4th place in group B, so winning your group theoretically gives you an 'easy' game in the quarter finals.

    Ive not seen any of this due to the games being on at 1am UK time. I will watch some of the knockout games on BBC iplayer the following day without knowing the score, should be a decent watch.

    There is usually 3 groups of 4 as they invite in 2 other countries but Quatar and I think Japan it was had to withdraw because of covid hence the hastily arrange 2 groups of 5 teams this time round. I think Suriname and Guyana which are in South America are members of concacaf hence they cannot make things up to an even 12 teams even though they are part of South America.

    I'd love Messi to win it.

    Wait for Ronaldo fans to chime in with the Euros are harder to win...

    I've said it once and I'll say it again. In terms of footballing ability, Ronaldo isn't even on the same stratosphere as Messi/Maradonna. He's a ridiculously good goal scorer and finisher but in terms of actual footballing ability? He's not even close.

    FFS behave yerself. I’m a Messi and Diego fan above all but that is the most flippant statement I’ve heard about one of the greatest football players ever. :giggle1:
