If only....Argentina vs Chile

A few observations on the U20 semi between Argentina and Chile.

This is not the first time during this tournament that I looked forward to an Argentina game and was let down. The previous game against Mexico was as dull as dishwater.

Didn't it seem that Chile's shutout streak was the talisman that they were hanging their hats on and once that was broken, they shattered ?
And since I am using my 20/20 hindsight..if only the ref had yellow carded the Chilean player who kicked out and red carded the Argentinian player for rolling around clutching his head in the area of his eye when there had been no contact.....we might have had a contest.

Now both teams are playing on Sunday (one in the third place game and the other in the final). Should be an interesting afternoon.
