silvia.jpgHello all!

I'm Silvia from Buenos Aires, Argentina and... of course... my prays are for the team coaching by Diego Maradona... the number 1 ever !

Yes... I know we are very very football fans here and yes... we're feeling a sort of deep World Cup fever these days... but... it's sooo special...

We're all provided with TV screens at every school, every office, there is no place in this country where it's not a TV screen.... even at the parks we can enjoy all the matches from giant screens... All the streets are blue and white, shirts, flags, hats, scarves... etc etc.: vendors are very busy these days and people are buying all this stuff like if it was the last World Cup in their lives... LOL. That's funny.


The cities are empty when Argentina team is playing.. no one at the streets, no taxis, go to the supermarket if you wish...you'll be the only one there !! We stop all our activities for watching the match...

And so we Argenitinians are, people... yes... so we are...we were looking forward for this event,, we're living it with lot of passion.... we'll go crazy if we win and totally depressed if we... ( I don't want to write it ) lose...

We won our first match against Nigeria on Sat ... Argentina 1 - Nigeria 0 ... and we enjoyed a lot our players and our leader Lionel Messi... he is great,, isn't he ?

Vamos vamos Argentina
Vamos vamos a ganar !!


All the best for our team, my wish that this Cup will be a memorable tournament for all the Argentinians !

    Hello! I´m very glad about our last match between Argentina and Nigeria.Here we are great fans of our team and of our couch Diego Maradona.Every house, every street is a party. In all the houses families get together and share the fun drinking mate ( our national drink)and eating asado or "picadas" after the game. Nobody is in the streets, the pubs and restaurants full of people and "cábalas" everywhere. I wish we could win! Let´go Argentina!!!!!!

    Hello Silvia,
    Nice photos! I'm sure it has been a great time for Argentinians. It's been not different in Brazil. Wherever we are the only colours we can see is green and yellow.
    At the moment, people round here are anxious about the kick-off our team will take tomorrow against North Korea.
    There's one thing I would like to ask you... Brazilian players and fans (so many times influenced by the experts' opinion in the media) have Argentina as their great rivals, what I think is commom, since both football teams are among the best in the world. I wonder if it is the same in Argentina. Do Argentinian players and fans have Brazil as their greateast rivals?

    With Regards,

    Hello mirtucha and Jordão !

    Do you live in Buenos Aires like me or another city ?
    We have to get up early next Thursday so we can arrive to the office before the match and keep our place in front of the TV !

    yes, definetely, Brazil is our great rival and the team we "hate" in terms of football,, so the rules of football are, you know,, we pray for Brazil losing each match they have to play.... I guess it's the same there,, I heard of a bar there which was giving free beers for each goals made against Argentina..

    Hello Silvia, how are you? I can see that argentinians are very optimsts about the results of the team. That could even be very fun to see Maradona running around Obelisco with few clothes or even none as he has promissed. Well, in november I´m going to Buenos Aires, a city which I particularly love too much. I like to see your positiviness about your team. Good luck for you but I want more lucky for my brazilian team. lol

    Regards from Brazil.

    Hello Alessandro !
    We are all looking forward for YOUR match this afternoon,,, I'll tell you my point of view after the match....

    And yes,, Diego Maradona promised to run naked around the Obelisco,, and another people are saying they'll follow him if we win....
    MY GOD !!
    I strongly wish we'll win the Cup but I'm not sure if I want to see that show ;-)
    Anyway,, I can do nothing to stop them.. LOL

    Hi Silvia

    I am Gilberto, I am from Mexico City.
    I know that in Argentina the soccer its all, because really your team its good, I liked. I met the madness the soccer in Buenos Aires, in the year 2002 I went to Argentina of vacations, and I went the stadium of River, in this ocation played versus Boca Juniors, wwaauu!! it is incredible to see as much euphoria. But in this world cup Mexico team will be champion, jejeje! its a joke! In my country the soccer is very important, not as much as in your country, the cuestion is that our team almost always lost, but with all it, the mexican poblation we are with the hope, that may be in this cup the mexican team will have a better actuation. good luck for Argentina, and very good luck for Mexico......VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!! chau!!!

    Hi friends !
    Well,, having seen our classic rival, Brazil, this afternoon,, I must admit that they havent impressed me...I thought they were going to make more goals against the weak Corea and I didnt imagine that Corea will make a goal to them...Some people said it could have been the weather,, that it was very cold in South Africa and brazilian players arent used to play with cold temperatures.. May be they change next match,, but for what I have seen until now,, and apart from Argentina,, the other team doing good is Germany.

    Let me know your opinions !


  • Comment number 9.

    Hi Silvia

    With respect to the play of Brazil and North Korea, I think that the weather is not problem, because the players are professionals and they may play with cold or heat. The reason because the games have few goals is, in my opinnion because the teams are played very defensives, all the teams seek to win points before that goals, these are esencials to go the next stage....where will be the betters, such as Mexico and Argentina jejejeje or not??


  • Comment number 10.

    Hi giles !

    we have our second match tomorrow,,, Argentina against South Corea and Mexico against France,, we have a huge hope in our team,, a hope that increases even more when we see the few performance the other teams show...
    See that Spain,, which was supposed to be one of the favorites,, lost its match against Suiza,, I cant believe it !! What happened Spain ??? Ehhh ??


  • Comment number 11.

    Hi Friends:

    In this moment all the people and me to be really happies, today with the triumph of mexican team we are fill of illusion. Durinting to the game, was beautiful to see the faces fill up of joy, this was the better today, I liked the soccer, but I made happy to see so much pride for the our team.

    Although in my opinnion the team french today they showed much apathy, I saw a team french very by of low of their level, and with two goals doubtful today all Mexico to be enjoyed it....Mexico! Mexico! Mexico! Mexico! Mexico! Mexico! Mexico!

  • Comment number 12.

    Congratulations giles !!
    I enjoyed Mexico's victory very much !

    Well,, today it was a day of victories,,, what do you say about our victory Argentina 4 - South Korea 1 ????? Wasn't it great ??
    We got almost crazy with each goal ! This was a party !!

    Next week we're having our match against Greece and after that,, who knows ?? But, there are some chances that Argentina plays against Mexico.... that will not be easy...

    Keep in touch

  • Comment number 13.

    Hi Silvia:

    Of course!, I liked very much the victory of our brothers Argentinians, with it you will be the next stage, unfortunately with the possibility of play versus Mexico, uff!!, it will be very good, becouse those plays almost always are exciting, but first we have that win to Uruguay, if happens we will avoid play against you, I will prefer play versus Korea or Grece, teams less complicated that the great Argentina.

    Keep in touch

    Regarding of football,,, I've seen today that Spain woke up,,, Spain 2- Honduras 0 - they did like Brazil,, they both woke up in their second match
    Anyway, we are all expecting our 3rd match tomorrow against Greece...


  • Comment number 17.

    We made a great match today against Greece,, Argentina 2 - Greece 0
    and we are now thinking of Mexico....
    Since now,, as if you lose you go out,, wowwwww,, we all will suffer a lot !!


  • Comment number 18.

    Hi Silvia:

    aaaaaaaaahhhh!!! I may to say that all Mexico be really worried, this becouse we say that the next play against Argentina wil be very difficult. I belive that this its a great opportunity, because the team mexican will have revenge, you remember when the previous one World Cup Mexico were eliminated, with the excelent goal of Maxi Rodriguez, even in my memory, I and all Mexico to want that this ocation the things are the other way....Good Luck!! In case of lost with team argentinian, you can add with me a new fan of your team.

    Hi people !!!
    Wowwwwwwwwwww how much stress bcos of the matches of today !!!

    We all lived them with lot of passion,, I must admit that all argentinians celebrated the victory of Holland against Brazil,, we watched it at the office and all my mates and me prayed for Brazil to lose... That was our first goal..
    After that,, we watched Uruguay against Ghana, and we became all uruguayans,, we have an uruguayan mate at the office and we like our brothers uruguayans bcos they're friendly people and they deserved this happiness.

    Now,, we're very excited expecting tomorrow's match,, Yes,, I know Germany is a very hard team and I hope we will not suffer very much,, although I know that we will suffer...

    Thank you giles, yvette and hardrock !

  • Comment number 28.

    Hi hardrock,,,
    perhaps I go to sleep and when I get up this is not real..... but it IS indeed !

    Germany played MUCH BETTER than us... and we cant say anything more...

    They deserved the victory and maybe they deserve to be the champions...

    I'll pray for Uruguay since now,, it seems that our brothers uruguayans will do a better performance than us...

    I wish I were you but for now Enjoy your victory hardrock !


  • Comment number 29.

    hi silva
    do not be sad....
    luck plays its role in that match you must mention that also....
    i think ARGENTINA team has a special longing and race sense for goals ... for vectory .........
    organized team , and has famous players with diligent coach
    maybe in germeny meeting that sense was lost or not found!!!!!!
    was lost cuzof "earlly goal "
    that early goal at 3minuate make argantina is confused ......
    then the "referee" canceld goal for you.....
    and that effect in bad style on argantina players,and sure the decision was true , but i am talking about "bad effect "
    in the second round argantina controlled playground from 45--->60minuates
    the race was hot ......
    but the second goal which germeney scored it was "killing strike "
    that drive argantina out of champion ,,
    then match trace was changed ,,, .
    from all that analyze i wanted to indicate argantina lost by "luck role"
    bye (shadi)
