Favourites Off To Impressive Start

Falling behind to an understrength USA did not unduly trouble Argentina last night in their Copa opener. They quickly equalised through Crespo and then shortly after half-time threw on Pablo Aimar for Cambiasso and notched up three more goals – Crespo again, Aimar himself and late substitute Carlitos Tevez.

The omens were good for Argentina – Crespo looked sharp, Messi hungry, Riquelme visionary and involved in three of the goals while Aimar and Tevez scoring after coming off the bench showed off their strength in depth. This was favourites confirming their status with category.

    Thought the Argies looked the best team so far. Also a mention for Heinze who looked more of his own self last night and was involved in two of the goals.

    The bookies seem to agree. One of them (no names, no packdrill!) now has Argentina at 10-11 favourites, and Brazil at 11-4. Paraguay seems like a decent punt at 14-1 – but Mexico at 6-1 is third favourite!!
