Argentina win 2-1. It was a very well played match, but Argentina was more effective up front and deserved to win.

I'm proud of the Americans, but now I'm worry that the same thing that happened from 1984-1996 will happen again. USA will get one win & 2 draws & because Americans are not attackers, they always miss going to the quarterfinals because of goal difference.

Well, McBride, Adu and Holden certainly make a strong forward trio.

The US still has a very difficult task ahead of them: Nigeria and the Netherlands are both teams that could beat the US. Honestly, thought, you got to feel for the Japaneses: so many missed opportunities...

Anyway, this could be a very interesting group stage, since there has already been a draw in every group.

I´ve been absent for a while.

to the topic:

I dont care about the mens football at the Olympics as there is no German team. But i closely follow the womens tournament. Germany is current world cup winner and many here in the press believe, that the team is a gold medalist. i totally disagree with that. the tournament is quite open. That said, only Brazil, US, Norway, Germany and North Korea have the chance to win a medal. All other teams are sh!t! Including New Zealand, Sweden and Canada.

I really cant understand how somebody can be satisfied with a draw against Japan. Come on, it is only Japan. New Zealand will be ripped apart by the US and Norway.

But it seems to me, that the US will struggle to keep the gold medal. I expect them to finish second in their group. That means they will face the winner of the Brazil, NK, Germany-group in the quarterfinal. They can win that match, no doubt, but it will tough.

For Germany i am hoping, that will finish also second in the group. That means they will play Sweden or Canada in the quarter. An easy job.
