Wonderful Brazil - poor Argentina

Brazil defeated Argentina 4-1 in the final of the Confederations Cup 2005, to win their second title in this tournament. Led by an excellent Ronaldinho, a dangerous Adriano and an amazing Kaka, Brazil was truly superior to Argentina in every aspect of the game. This might be less surprising than Argentina actually being that bad: Argentina has shown little in the tournament, and coach Mr. Pekerman should be very worried about the actual potential of Argentina for next years World Cup. Centering the game around Mr. Riquelme is simply too predictable, and Mr. Riquelme simply lacks the quality (that is why he never made it in Barcelona). Argentina will not get very far playing like this. Brazil on the other hand, should be heading to a new World Cup title - although it is all very early to predict...

I fully concur Erik. Brazil was really too strong for Argentina, and I surely expected a more equal game. However, it was a pleasure to see how well Brazil played. Mayby Argentina will win the FIFA World Youth Championship instead....
