Argentina 2 - Cote D'ivorie 1

Quick note on probably the best matchup of teams so far. Argentina looked ruthlessly efficient and precise in the first half. If they continue to play like that they will be around for a while. However, the Elephants' speed and athleticism did cause the defense some serious trouble. If not for some bad finishing and luck, the Ivory Coast could have won the match.

The Ivory Coast looked very talented but they need to corral that talent. Clearly, the team was far more athletically gifted than Argentina but it did not have the precision and organization of Argentina. I still like the Ivory Coast to come out of this group.
