    Argentina to play Haiti for morale boosting. I see 6-10 goals in this match.

    • @Baijai007, Objection! (Just a joke, just pretending we’re in
      Student Assembly). Haiti may run away with a win. You never know. What if they have a solid defence and an excellent goalie?

        How na? Which win by Haiti? If Haiti should win then Argentina should not participate in the world cup please.

        Smiles! The Argies have suffered heavy defeats lately and would never want to reach Russia in a rattled mode, so they planned a whitewash party to boost their morale.

    Imagine this Argies. Looking for some funny match ups to boost their ego after resounding thrashings from our dear Super Eagles and Spain. Expectedly, I believe their coach will rest Messi again in this encounter.

  • I predict Haiti will beat Argentina 3:2. Argentina is not all that this year!

  • If haiti beat argentina, den people nor go pursue dem commot 4 wc

  • Read between the line folks. This game is the product of a master scheme. There are varied interpretations, but two versions seem the most accurate:
    (A)
    This is an ego boosting hunt. If the Argentines thrash Haiti, they will have a dopamine surge (the pleasure hormone which we all secret ourselves) and they’ll go to Russia believing they are unbeatable. (B) Sampaoli will ‘fix’ the match (there’s no money involved so he’ll go scott free). The Argentines will lose by 2-0, giving her opponents a false impression of their strength. During the WC proper, they’ll then prance at opponents like ferocious lions. Whatever, we now know the gimmicks. Any more interpretations?
