Brasil 4 – 1 Argentina

Brasil goleia Argentina e prova que é a melhor selecção do Mundo

Aos quinze minutos já o Brasil vencia por 2-0 com golos, aliás espectaculares, de Adriano e Cacá aos 11′ e 15′ respectivamente, resultado que se manteve até ao intervalo. Os argentinos não criavam perigo e na parte final do primeiro tempo mostravam desorientação com o árbitro a intervir e a mostrar vários amarelos, Sorin, Cambiasso e o mesmo Sorin a arriscar a expulsão por segundo amarelo.

Se um golo da Argentina poderia relançar o jogo o 3-0 que ocorreu aos 2′ da 2ª. parte resolveu o jogo. Cruzamento de Cicinho e Ronaldinho de primeira perto da marca de penalty a facturar. Lux (g. redes da Argentina) evita o 4-0 depois duma perda de bola inaceitável de Riquelme no meio-campo originando um contra-ataque de 4 contra 2. Finalmente o treinador da Argentina mexe na equipa fazendo entrar Pablo Aimar saindo Cambiasso aos 55′.O jogo estava aberto porque se a Argentina finalmente atacava, o Brasil não se remetia à defesa e as oportunidades sucediam-se. Um cruzamento longo da direita de Cicinho (grande exibição) proporcionou a Adriano um remate de cabeça sem hipóteses a fazer o 4-0 aos 62′

Aimar entrou bem e fez um grande golo de cabeça em voo depois duma boa jogada pela direita do ataque. Mais substituições de ambos os lados a Argentina agora afinalmente a obrigar Dida a trabalho mas o resultado não se alterou.

Vitória concludente do Brasil vincando uma superioridade inesperada e virando com juros o resultado de 1-3 que sofrera em Buenos Aires para a qualificação para o Campeonato do Mundo, há três semanas atrás, sem que a ausencia de Saviola possa justificar a diferença.

O árbitro esteve longe de estar perfeito: interrompeu várias vezes o jogo em benefício do infractor, podia ter exibido o 2º. amarelo a Sorin e também pareceu-nos haver um penalty não assinalado contra o Brasil na segunda parte.

Entretanto a Alemanha obteve o 3º. lugar ao derrotar o México por 4-3, no prolongamento, depois de 3-3 no final do tempo regular.

 

NOSTALGIA DEL PRIMER AMOR

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 6:57 am

Tu soledad de nieve reclinada,
virginal y sencilla, en mi memoria,
como agua fiel de fatigada noria
viene a regar mi voz enamorada.

¡Cómo recrea el alma sosegada
la penumbra y dulzor de aquella historia
con resplandores de tardía gloria
entre abejas y frutos constelada!

¡Oh, delicada llama, ardor primero
velado en llanto y celestial mirada,
par del trino, la fuente y la azucena!

Mírame combatido y prisionero
volver a tu ilusión breve y tronchada
como un temblor en la desierta arena.

Dionisio Ridruejo (n. 12 Oct 1912 Burgo de Osma; m. 29 Jun 1975 Madrid)
