Only a perfect performance will do: Sabella

Alejandro Sabella is looking relaxed. He may well be a bundle of nerves on the inside, but the expression on his face and the tone of his voice are conspicuously free from the jitters you might expect in the run-up to such a big match. Faced with the challenge of taking on a mighty Germany side in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Final, Sabella has the necessary worldliness to keep the ship steady, reports FIFA.com. Granted, this is his first post as an international head coach. However, he knows...

It was too much to take for Argentine fans. No match is easy and no opponents are weak in a World Cup. Yet, it may seem unfair for Argentine fans to go through a nerve-wracking, nail-biting win once more against a not-so-fancied opponent. The game came so close to penalty kicks! Switzerland missed twice...
