The plan went well and presented by the Arab Group The first surprise of the World Cup. A surprise that is hard to match. The reason? Next, the keys to the party.
The French coach worked for months for this meeting. With the patience of a craftsman, he painted every level of detail of his equipment.

Messi looked like he didn’t existPerhaps physical problems prevented him from taking responsibility for the situation. Angel de Maria In the first phase there were some unsuccessful individual arrests, such as Alejandro Gómez. De Paul isn’t even close to being a spiritual leader and Paredes isn’t even impressive. One of the main favorites for the title is too short.
