There seems to be a lot of legacy players in this tournament who are holding their teams back
Yeah, seen a fair few

Wales - Bale and Ramsey

Argies - DiMaria and Otamendi

Germany - Thomas Muller

Portugal - Pepe and Ronaldo

Belgium - half their team.

Uruguay - Suarez, Cavani, Godin, Caceras

Before yesterday you could of argued Maguire for england

No doubt a fair few more I’ve missed as I don’t know the African, Asian, Central and North American teams well Enough.

This match reminds me why I was not upset at the England performance last night.

World Cup football is hard - even for the best teams.

The important thing is getting through... and I don't think England will lose by 4 to Wales.

To be fair, Mexico don’t really have to commit. At some point Argentina are going to have to go for it, that should open up the game.

Will they really "go for it" though?
If backfires and they lose they're out. After 2 games.

If they draw, they just need to beat Poland by 2 goals. Imagine they'd rather take that scenario than blow it tonight and face the embarrassment of going home after 2 games.

Game needs an Argentina goal really. Mexico happy to just crowd it out in their own half and not really commit to a counter.
Mexico playing for a draw, need them to go behind to have to come out and do something.
