O jogo que surpeendeu a todos! Argentina Vs Arabia Saudita. Você também falhou ao advinhar esse jogo?
The Argentine team performed better overall, according to the graph above. Their ball possession was almost 70%, which allowed them to create a better game, with 11 shots inside the area. However, they failed to convert all that advantage into valid goals. On the other hand, the team from Saudi Arabia, which was worse in all aspects analyzed, knew how to take advantage of opportunities and convert them into goals.
O time argentino teve uma performance no geral melhor, de acordo com o gráfico acima. Sua posse de bola foi de quase 70%, o que permitiu a eles uma criação de jogo maior, com 11 chutes dentro da área. Entretanto, não conseguiu converter toda essa vantagem em gols válidos. Por outro lado, o time da arabia saudita que foi pior em todos os aspectos analisados, soube aproveitar as oportunidades e converté-las em gols.
Even with a better performance, the Argentine team had a big problem that cost them the match, the positioning of the team. The lack of teamwork and very long passes made them lose 2 goals due to offside. If that hadn't happened, the score would have been 3-2 for Argentina. In my opinion, I believe that the country's situation may have reflected on the players as well, making them not give their 100%, a player knowing that his country has almost 90% inflation, with 1/3 of the people below the line of Poverty must carry a greater burden.
However, we cannot leave aside the game presented by the Saudi Arabia team, who scored two incredible and powerful goals. Perhaps part of the victory, in addition to the team's performance, was playing in a familiar location, as the country is also from the Middle East. Thus, the players are already more adapted to the climate and have greater support from the fans.
Mesmo com uma melhor performance, o time argentino teve um grande problema que lhes custou a partida, o posicionamento do time. A falta de entrosamento e passes muitos longos lhes fez perder 2x gols por impedimento. Caso isso não tivesse acontecido, o placar teria sido 3x2 para a Argentina. Na minha opinião, eu acredito que a situação do país pode ter refletido nos jogadores também, fazendo com que não dessem seu 100%, jogador sabendo que seu país está com quase 90% de inflação, com 1/3 do povo abaixo da linha da pobreza deve trazer um peso maior.
Entretanto, não podemos deixar de lado o jogo apresentado time da Arabia Saudita, que fizeram dois gols incríveis e potentes. Talvez uma parte da vitória além do desempenho do time, foi de jogar em um local já familiarizado, visto que o país também é do oriente médio. Assim, os jogadores já estão mais adaptados com o clima e tem um apoio maior da torcida.

It is very possible all these economic factors played a role in the player's mind against them, yet it was evident the lack of team work as if this was the first time for all of them playing together, this is unacceptable for a team like Argentina, I hope they can improve in the next games, they should be able to!
Yeah I think we had a major amount of hive users voting for the argentina victory. However if we add this problems we got what happened. Yeah I also would like to see them playing better. 👍

I don't think economics had anything to do with this. Most of the Argentinian players are seriously wealthy and live outside the country. The same could be said of Brazil yet they perform consistently. The Saudi's had more hunger than the Argentinians and fought for the ball. If you have the wrong mindset in sport you will be punished as you have to put the other team away however weak they are. Saudi Arabia is not a strong team and outclassed the South Americans with the 50/50 balls.
Yeah I agree that they had more hunger they were really giving their all.
Did you know that because of the victory they even had a holiday after the game? 👀
I don't think it has anything to do with inflation, I am Argentinean. Players live lives of luxury, their families also, even those from River Plate(local league) earn millions of dollars a year.
What is true is that soccer in Argentina is taken very seriously.
So yes, a player from Argentina is always going to have more of a burden than a player from most national team in winning this type of championships.
I do agree that the Saudis had an advantage because they played slightly on their territory, they are used to the temperature, Argentine players were very worn out in the first minutes. Qatar is a small country surrounded by Saudi Arabia.
Regarding the fact that Argentina did not know how to take advantage of their opportunities, it is not that they had so much, they did not know how to generate play and they were played long passes where the opponents did a great job by moving forward the line and leaving off side.
Nice analysis, thanks for sharing. Also it is good to have a perspective of someone from the country.
