This was not a playing embarrassment like those at previous Copas & World Cups but Argentina have flopped again. His chances of ever winning an international trophy are dwindling lớn a maximum of two, three more attempts, and he looked a little jaded in Belo. It may now be time to step aside for the new guard. Brazil, with better finishing, organisation, and belief in themselves, are in the final và will play the winner of Peru & Chile. They must fancy themselves, though a mounting injury danh mục may be problematic. That was the pitched battle we wanted and expected, a classic of the genre.

That was a breathless half, và it ends with Lionel Messi asking questions of the officials. Brazil were the better team, but only just. Gabriel Jesus’ goal was the creation of the ageless Dani Alves but Sergio Aguero hit the bar with a header from a chipped Messi free-kick.

Come now, is there a grander, more historic international rivalry than that between Brazil và Argentina? There isn’t, you know. OK, both teams have rather lost their sheen these days, with Argentina essentially reduced to a cast of hapless clowns in Lionel Messi’s quest to lớn win an international trophy. Brazil might have won the Olympics in năm 2016 but theirs has been a tale of the rest failing to lớn live up to lớn Neymar, & being used as some kind of Harlem Globetrotters cash cow for the national federation. No Neymar, of course, this time around, but Messi is still huffing và puffing away, putting his hands on his hips and gesticulating as he does. & the signs of the 2-0 quarter-final defeat of Venezuela (ok, Venezuela) suggested that some other players might be coming to lớn the fore. Giovani Lo Celso scored late on after Lautaro Martínez scored again. Brazil needed penalties lớn beat Paraguay in their quarter-final, & they have been disjointed in attack though really quite decent in defence, having not yet conceded a goal. We know what fate awaits Argentina if they get to lớn the final losing lớn Chile on penalties as they did in năm ngoái and 2016 - but can Brazil make it through? They last won this tournament in 2007, whereas Argentina last won it in 1993. Both seem a very long time ago. The overall record between the teams is 45 Brazil wins, 25 draws and 39 Argentina wins. The trò chơi kicks off in Belo at 1.30 am UK time, 8.30 pm ET, 5.30 pm PT.
