Messi v Ronaldo fails to inspire as Guerreiro seizes moment for Portugal

It was billed as the battle of the two finest footballers on the planet but Argentina v Portugal at Old Trafford barely rose above the ordinary

The story is too old to be commented.

Watched some of this before France's match, found it to be very boring...

75% of this match was played in portugals half.
argentina were clearly the better team. only thing portugal had going for them was a solid defence.
ronaldo was nowhere to be seen except for a few flicks and touches here and there. messi out wide, while active, is clearly not meant to play there.

the goal came in stoppage time when argentina called it a day and were ready to settle for the draw, their defense switched off and they got caught out.

nothing at all like the classic match everyone was expecting.
