‘This was our best game’
Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella said the match versus Belgium was the best game the Albiceleste has played so far during the tournament and highlighted the team’s defensive performance.
“This was our best game yet, as regards play and defensive timing,” Sabella told reporters after the 1-0 win over Belgium.
Argentina passed through to the semi-finals for the first time since Italy 1990, when a side lead by Diego Maradona went on to face Germany in the finals, and lost after a controversial penalty sanctioned for the Teutons by Mexican referee Edgardo Codesal.
