In an underdog story that everyone except the Americans and the English can get around, the tiny footballing nation of Argentina lives to fight another day.
This comes after Argentina managed to scrape a win against Poland this morning, taking them out of their group and into a do or die clash against titans of World Football, Australia.
The 2-0 victory secured Argentina’s spot in the Round of 16 at the Qatar World Cup, which has been hailed as an incredible achievement for the nation of 45 million people.
They now face an ominous looking Socceroos team, who comfortably dusted world number 10 ranked Denmark, in one of the most comprehensive displays of football ever seen.
Finished off by a brilliant goal from Matt Leckie who has undoubtedly been one of the many stars for the Australian team, the Socceroos easily progressed to the next stage without having to check the result from the French and Tunisian game once.
That victory, which was never in doubt, followed the huge win over Tunisa, with only an extremely unlucky loss against France costing the Socceroos from taking home the maximum 9 points from the group stage.
It’s believed the Argentines will now look to play a compressed game in the Round of 16 and try and grab a lucky goal off a counter attack through some of their lesser known stars like Lionel Messi.
The Socceroos are now set to face the United States or the Netherlands in the Quarter Finals.
If it is indeed the Americans we face, it’s believed we will just title the game the Soccer Cup and give them the result in line with our diplomatic positions on pretty much everything.
