Goodbye Maradona! Don’t come back

And yes. Maradona is gone. After losing to Germany four to zero he and the Argentinians have to hit the road and go back home.

I personally enjoyed each and every single one of Germany goals. Each of the them was like a slap in Maradonas face. Maradona was not able to move the bench properly, his team was a broken one, there was no midfield. Muller got to laugh on the first goal after Maradona refused to share the stage with him in a friendly match in Germany. On the third goal Schweinsteiger took the ball to the kitchen and then passed it for Friedrich to score. Take into account that the argentinian defense was formed by Higuian, Pastore and DiMaria. This goal was scored by the german central defender. This shows Maradona was a good player, but is not a coach and he certainly has a big mouth. He had no capacity to make the proper changes during the match.

Here is a small video of the match. It’s in spanish, but goals are a universal language.

By the way, happy Fourth!

World Cup 2010

Yes, we have another World Cup going on. I think asides from Germany playing Australia there has been no interesting match so far. It is true that this just got started and Brazil and Spain haven’t played yet. But I was expecting something more. We will see how this goes on.

People are really living this World Cup in NYC. I was at Nevada Smith this Sunday watching Germany and I must admit the ambiance was spectacular. People from a bunch of different origins watching the game. “Ghana is going to beat Germany” said one girl, not quite I think. Pictured below is a picture from Nevada Smith on Sunday right after the game ended.

Nevada Smith

There is this annoying noise from the bubuzelas. You are watching the game and there is this permanent noise coming from this things, you can’t listen to people singing anymore.
