Ronaldinho couldn't beat Argentina
Brazilian players just admitted they were outplayed by Argentina which dominated their World Cup qualifier 3-1 Wednesday to guarantee their passport to the 2006 Cup in Germany.
"It was a good learning experience," Carlos Alberto Parreira told Pele's Web site. Crespo scored two goals and Juan Roman Riquelme added another one to give Argentina a astonishing 3-0 lead by the end of the first time. Brazil's Roberto Carlos narrowed the difference on a violent free kick in the second half, but it was too little, too late.
Ironically, Brazil was riding high after a convincing 4-1 victory over Paraguay on Sunday. Parreira maintained Brazil's high-scoring formation with Kaka, Adriano, rising star Robinho, and FIFA Player of the Year Ronaldinho. Barcelona's player couldn't do much for his team, even though he made a great move in minute 42 dribbling 6 argentinians. Now Brazil will have to fight hard theirs last 3 games to be in Germany 2006.
