World Cup 2018

What is with all the hatred of Argentina? Is it really down to Maradona's hand of God? If it is its pretty pathetic. Ireland were eliminated from a World Cup by a handball by Henry for France, I was upset with the player for a while, but to hate an entire nation for 30 years. I honestly don't know what to say. I also at no stage felt that it diminished his quality as a player.

Also, Maradona was caught using cocaine, a recreation drug so "drug cheat" is a load of @#/? and smacks of sore loser syndrome. The number of comments on here about Argentina and Germany over the last two weeks have done this site no credit, we should be bigger then this. A laugh at one of your big rivals losing is fine but there have been some really nasty stuff. Being Irish I like to see my team beat England (whats seldom is wonderful), but I would not sit and listen quietly to one of my friends talking about "disgusting English" I would tell them to grow up.

I would research the 1994 world cup then revise that nonsense.

I thought it was commonly agreed he had used a cocktail of stuff to lose two stone before the world cup but its a fair point. Wish I knew what he used as I could do with losing a bit myself.

I'm pretty sure warfare in the Falklands are behind it... much the same as in the war vs Germany.

To a degree but the concept of 'the auld enemy' suits England for some reason.

And in fairness, if you do talk to Irish about the troubles it can get very heated very quickly.

Hopefully that spurs Nigeria on to grab a winner , if it happens will be disappointed if there is not a caption under a photo of the penalty that reads  " Moses parting the Messsi"

Is anyone watching the Iceland game?

Croatia are winning, so for Argentina nothing has really changed with that Nigeria goal, as they needed a goal at 1-0, now they just need a goal at 1-1.

Maradona was on ephedrine. 

A banned stimulant that helps weight loss. So, not ‘recreational’ drugs.

Higuaín really the ultimate big game choker. Non existent again tonight apart from missing a good chance.

Di Maria has not been the same player ever since he left Real Madrid. A shame really as he was superb in the 2014 Champions League final.

Meza has been shocking in both games. How has he been brought on ahead of Aguero, Lo Celso and Dybala.

Because they rely on one player..great attack..poor everywhere else yet people always tip them for every world cup even though they have never been good enough

I don't know about giving a pen for this, if they do....looks like it bounced around the Argentine.

That's a fault of VAR, should be simply that the ref goes about his job as if without it and can be overruled by VAR.

These matches really get crazy if it's down to the last 5 minutes and a team faces elimination if they don't score.

All those that put the mortgage on Argentina at 33-1 might be getting a bit tense right now.
