Soccer "Friendly"

Argentina and Germany played yesterday in Germany. Both teams are reorganizing under new coaches.. Germany under Klinsmann and Argentina under Pekerman (yes, that is his name i ain't making this stuff up).. Anyways I did not see the game as I live in a soccer-forsaken country but apparently the game was a great one with Germany leading the way with two first half goals... then Argentina reasserted itself and took over and drew 2-2 with two goals by forward Hernan Crespo who had been given up for dead last year but now is scoring goals like they are going out of style.. This team also featured Riquelme in midfield and seems to have worked allright... Encouraging news for both teams!

I know Argentina has let everyone down in the past few World Cups but hope springs eternal and I'm hopeful they can make a more impressive showing in the 2006 World Cup...Germany, as host, and with their World Cup track record has to be the favorite going in.
