Argentina vs Portugal International Friendly Match:
Date: 09 February 2011, Time: 08:00 PM GMT
Two of the biggest teams in the Football with argubaly two finest players on planet in Messi and Ronaldo will be going head to head for the International Friendly match on Wednesday 09 February 2011. Both of these teams had a reasobable World Cup 2010 and with two players fighting for the big titles for their clubs now is the time to shine for their respective nations. Cristiano Ronaldo is the Captain for Argentina while Leo Messi will be spearheading the forward line for Argentina. Portugal have been playing some good football of late while Argentina had a fantastic World Cup 2010 untill the loss the suffer in the hands of Germany in the Quarterfinals but that is the thing of the past now they will be hoping to kickstart 2011 in grand style when they host Portugal in the Midweek.
This is going to be a explosive encounter and the media is building the hype in Messi vs Ronaldo scenario which will be the case on Wednesday, people will be analysing the putting their views on both the players, we will see the same scenario as we had before the Elclassico as Ronaldo vs Messi talk out played the clubs and from the looks of things same thing will be happing here as well. People should take it as just another soccer match instead rating players on 1 match performence only. In reallity both of these players have been playing some senstaional football and they just keep scoring goals for fun at the moment, ROnald oand Messi are going head to head in the La Liga top scorer race and it will be interesting to see whether they can keep the good run going in National team Colours.
Since both of these players are having great season, it will be difficult to say who will outplay the other but on paper Argentina looks better side and I will be going with a blue nad whites in this one as Portugal tend to struggle against South American sides but who can forget their performence against Spain in later part of the 2010 year.
