    It's great to see the U20 team bounce back from a rough start. Normally you would expect our team to meltdown in such a situation, but they dug deep and found a way.

    He played less than 10 games lol. I'm talking about those that have a long elite career, like Messi, Agüero, Di Maria, Mascherano, etc

    Lautaro came on and saved the day for Inter. Another bad showing for Inter and Icardi was once again invisible.

    I dont think Inter has another player who could score outside those 2 . When those 2 aint scoring, its always zero goal for Inter.

    Lautaro will be better than Icardi, everyone with football knowledge can realize that. Inter should take the opportunity, sell Icardi for 100M and with the money build a decent team around Lautaro.

    I, for one, have really high hopes for Lautaro.

    I don’t know how to exactly say it, but he has a little something in his attitude, or mentally, which I really like.

    This despite his relatively up and down season so far.

    Comparing Icardi to Lautaro is like comparing Aguero to Crespo. Very different type of forward.

    He's more talented than Icardi in term of skills but not exactly same type if player.

    Inter rely solely on their goals for many weeks already and couldnt find a single goal when they're not scoring which is ridiculous.

    Icardi would easily hit 30 goals playing in team with tons of service like Real madrid or Bayern.

    City destroyed Chelsea 4-0 inside first 35 minutes. Aguero scored twice so far, second goal was 25 yard strike.

    He scored again for hat tricks in consecutive weeks. He is now tied with Alan Shearer for most premier league hat tricks all time.

    I don't know why some people don't want to take him to Copa. The guy is blazing white hot right now.

    Glad to see Dybala get subbed on in the 83rd minute when Juve is up 2-0.

    The time he stays fit for Argentina was in last year WC and we didnt make it count as a team. Starting him only in late minutes against Nigeria and France.

    I forgot our fav Argentine forward was in the game and got few good chances early in the game. Showed some slick footwork and acceleration.

    We are down a goal at HT to Brasil. We gave away a penalty and Roffo nearly got to it. Too bad, it would've hilarious if he saved it because the penalty was comedy-hour.

    We just need a draw to secure the title. Brasil will need to win by 3 goals to qualify.

    Can't believe we lost to those bottom feeders. We qualify but lose out on the championship.

    Tremenda pecheada. Sin excusas. Una más contra los brazucas.

    Batista armó mal el plantel, no podés llevar 3 nueves y sólo 3 centrales. Me hace acordar al hdp de Maradona en el 2010. Se nos lesionó uno, expulsaron al otro y nos jodimos hoy.

    Hey.... its just the damn Sudamericano. A few months from now no one is going to remember if we finished first or second

    At least we accomplished the real objective, which was qualifying to the WC. Brazil, on the other hand, were left completely empty handed and will be watching from home

    Plus, losing the clasico and the Sudamericano title will allow the staff and players to hopefully see their weaknesses. If we would have won it, they would have arrived to Poland with a “superior” attitude. At least now they are grounded and know that there is work to do ahead of May

    Yea, you’re right, loco. But we always show up with a superior attitude, no matter what. :D

    The kids clearly look disappointed but maybe this will set a fire in them to go and win it.

    We won this edition a couple tournaments back and went to the U20’s and that team was utter trash, freakin Humberto Grondona was leading that side. We drew to Panama and Austria and lost to Ghana. That was a frustrating side. But I think we’ll have a deeper side coming into this tournament . Perhaps the likes of Garré and Barco will also be taken, who knows.

    But I’m excited to have more football in the summer.

    In 2017 we qualified as 4th and still went out in first round of the WC. So, they didn't see their weaknesses that time.

    Yesterday was a huge pecheada, let's face it.

    Di Maria is out there trolling United fans and has two assists. Just as the situation with Kun, hope he stays healthy.

    And I find it a bit of a coincidence that Neymar got “hurt” again around the same time last year. Is he preserving himself for the CA, which will be at home? Who knows, wouldn’t surprise me.
