    As someone who had money on Argentina, I was absolutely dumbfounded when they pulled him at the half. As much as a love Aguero he's been half-baked for six months now, teams need to rest him and let him heal properly before bringing him back. Lavezzi was their biggest threat for most of the first 45, shocking decision.

    At the time I just assumed it was an injury. Lavezzi had been their best player for the first 45. Hard to believe he could make such an obviously **** decision in such a big game.

    Sabella's clearly a hack and, one imagines, hacks promoted beyond their abilities are often either in thrall to their star men (see McClaren, Steve) or determined to stamp their authority (see Moores, Peter v 1.0).

    I'll leave it to the jury to decide which camp Sabella falls into.

    Yeah that was so stupid. I thought either Lavezzi was injured or Sabella didn't watch the first half.
