Group F: Is the entire competition fixed?
Argentina, ably aided by referee Milorad Mazic, who already showed how competent he is at apparently favouring big teams when awarding Germany a penalty against Portugal, yet denying Portugal almost a carbon copy at the other end later on, tops the group. How predictable, even if Messi and his colleagues do not deserve it.
