Argentina out, its managers continue

Although Argentina lost to Germany today (post forthcoming, I have alot of thoughts that I am having trouble getting down), Paraguay continues against Spain right now. Paraguay is coached by Argentine Gerardo Martino, and Argentine Lucas Barrios is a forward on the team.

Paraguay just scored a goal but it was wrongly called offsides so the game looks like it will go 0-0 at half. Unlucky, Spain has failed to create anything so far.

If Brazil spoke Spanish instead of Portuguese, I wonder if other countries would use their players and managers like teams use Argentines. This World Cup, off the top of my head, Chile and Paraguay had Argentine managers. Paraguay, Mexico, and Italy featured Argentines this World Cup as well. Trezequet played for France in 06 as well, though he quit because he disliked Raymond Domenech.

He looks pretty smart now, does he not?
