In the second half Argentina had better defense than the other team and they spread out, knowing that the Netherlands had to attack, and waiting for the counter-attack chances for their quick strikers.
The Netherlands could have instead of focusing on attacking in the second half they could have focused more on defense, as it was understandable that Argentina would try to get a second goal.
1. Passed the ball in many different ways at the start of the game to their teammates. 2. Knew which direction they should go to get the ball from the Netherlands. 3. Had a well figured out plan.
There was a movement off the ball. The other team tried to get the ball from Argentina but instead one of Argentina’s attackers had speed and one of the players tricked the other team by passing the ball through one of the mans legs in the beginning of the match.
It was a fun and funny game to watch. Netherlands got a yellow card which I believe they shouldn’t have because the Argentina player wasn’t even hurt when one of the other players tripped him by accident and it wasn’t even a painful trip, even though Argentina is one of my favorite teams.
