  1. Aguierre says that Mexico was “treated badly” when they went to El Salvador, yet Mexico welcomes the Salvadorians with bees in their goal and laser pointers in the faces of the coach and goalie during gameplay.

    I have to admit, the goals that went in the “bee goal” looked pretty sick, like the ball was on fire.

  2. palermo missed three penalties in one game vs colombia ten years ago, hence why he was dropped back then. maradona gave him a lifeline by calling him back.

  3. I’d love to see Argentina make it to SA just to see Messi and Higuain together. But given Diego’s arrogance, I hope Argentina either has to battle it out in the playoffs.

  4. Jorge,”The one player, Gonzalo, Maradona refused to call initially saves Diego’s butt…”

    And I believe Palermo scores in extra time to save him for another contest. Couldn’t see, feed was too hazy.
    I think Argentina can still drop out of WC, 6th place, if they lose at Uruguay.

  5. So it looks the final round of matches in South America will be decisive. Argentina, Ecuador and Uruguay could all still make it — or not. One of those countries will go S. Africa, one will go into the playoffs and one will stay home. Any preferences?

  6. Glorious goal by ELV on the set piece. The dust/fire extinguisher residue exploding off the net accentuated the skill. Amazing…

    ‘nother Mexican goal as I type.

  7. El Salvador is playing very well at 66 minutes, great finger tip save by their goalie, some counters. They don’t seem fazed by ELTri, Azteca, or Killer Bees. Doubt they’ll get a point?

  8. I love Ibra and his skills, but he seemed to be always going for the highlight reels instead of the simple that may have got a Sweden result.

    I missed the start of the Mexico game but aren’t officials supposed to inspect both goal areas just before the match? If so, and they saw none, that means the bees were introduced shortly after kick-off?

  9. A bee infestation has completely shut the pitch down in Mexico. We’ve been idle for nearly ten minutes while extinguishers are sprayed on nets, microphones, and the crowd.

  10. Wow this is a first for me. Bees all over the place. Workers are spraying the goal post with fire extinguishers. There was a shot of a boommike, near midfield, covered with bees!!! Crazy Azteca.
