First they were called sluggish, now boring which is synonymous to dull. I don’t know what to say, this is not the Argentina that took over Brazil in the world cup.
Gerardo Martino coach of the Albiceleste has called his men boring following their win over Jamaica. The Argentines started the match on a high note, but that fire died down in the second half.
“We are lacking effectiveness,” Martino told a post-match press conference. “It is something we took out of the result against Paraguay, but you cannot legislate for players of the ability of ours missing so many chances.
“The fact we didn’t put the game to bed, coupled with the physical issues we are having towards the end of games, generated uneasiness.
“I thought we did alright in the first half, getting the early goal and then creating four or five chances to score. We also did well to control Jamaica’s chances to break. But the second half was boring, our ball control was tedious, the movement of the ball was too slow and we generally lacked speed in processing our play.”
