Soccer Is for Babies

In case you didn’t hear this weekend’s big soccer news, Argentina won its 6th U-20 World Cup (for players under 20 yrs old) by beating the Czech Republic 2-1 in Toronto. Take a look back at my live commentary of the game on the The New York Times excellent Goal blog. Atlético Madrid striker Sergio Agüero scored his 6th goal in the tournament and earned the Golden Boot, but I was most impressed by Maxi Moralez, who plays for Racing in Argentina. Maxi had his head wrapped in bandages for part of the game, and it seemed to give him superpowers as he roamed all over the pitch dictating the play. Incidentally, David Beckham is not mentioned in the commentary.
