Where Lies Argentina’s Attractiveness?

Previously, I have written many posts in ‘ imaginealljobs ’ regarding various subjects. Win and Defeat are part of human life. In plays / games is true also. You can win a game or loose it but after a long phase, your winning and loosing proportions should come to a standard ratio. This is specially true in case of Football / Cricket teams. They loose trophies in one season and in next season they win it. The season may be on monthly / yearly / longer than one one year basis.
What I am see today that world football is monopolized by Brazil which I clearly dislike. There are other teams like Argentina, Germany, England, Netherland, Portugal, France etc. to claim the world title or Copa America title but it is the Brazilian players who get the hype before the match and then they play getting support from the people. I clearly like Ronaldinho among the all the R ‘s of Brazil. But still I think, that there should be at least one team which will be able to defeat Brazil. In the past three World Cups, France has done that by beating Brazil twice. England also has the potential to prevent Brazilian strikers’ attacks. But they are all European teams. Where are the Asian, African and North and South American teams to play tough with Brazil? There lies the significance of Argentina. It is also a Latin American football giant like Brazil. Last time Brazil won Copa America final against Argentina. This time surprisingly, the stage of football was like earlier -- Copa America Final --- Brazil vs. Argentina.

And, unfortunately, the earth of football again became monopolar instead of becoming bi-polar . This time Argentina got all the publicity due the New Maradona, ‘ Messidona ‘ ( Lionel Messi ) factor. Tevez, Riquelme etc. were there to support Messi and to structure Argentinian attack. But Argentinians were totally ruined by the Brazil’s attack and Ayala’s miserable own goal. Also, Messi factor did not click on time. And Brazil, without their full strength, with Ronaldinho and Kaka missing, won the match 3 – 0 with a comfortable margin. Actually, Argentina didn’t loose to Brazil, it was the game, football, that lost to Brazil. The art of football lost to power football -- that is bad for the game. As a football lover may I request the Football God (if there is anybody! ) , to make Argentina win the Copa America next time against a particular team, named Brazil? And, may I request all the players in the Argentina’s team and the supporters of any teams other global team to play and defeat Brazil to keep the international football a Neutral, Balanced game ?
