General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 FULL-TIME! ARGENTINA 4-1 VENEZUELA.
90' There will be two minutes added on at the end of this second half.
88' WHO'S THERE?! More Messi brilliance as the forward dances his way towards the touchline before producing an inviting pull-back towards the far post, but it runs all the way through as no one takes the initiative to attack it!
86' STAT: Argentina faced only 18 shots in the group stage (incl. blocked) – fewer than any other side.
85' J. Velázquez enters the game and replaces T. Rincón.
Jose Manuel Velazquez is the man to replace him.
84' Lovely scenes at Gillette Stadium as both sets of supporters applaud Rincon as he hands off the captain's armband ahead of his change. He slowly makes the walk over to the touchline, with time not really an issue at this point for either side. That's always nice to see - sportmanship in every sense of the word from these fans and players alike.
82' That looks a painful one! Venezuela's skipper pulls up and immediately clutches at his hamstring as he goes down in obvious pain. After a minute or so on the ground, he pops back to his feet, but he's certainly feeling the effects of this one.
80' Y. Del Valle enters the game and replaces J. Martínez.
L. Biglia enters the game and replaces É. Banega.
Banega is replaced by Lucas Biglia.
Josef Martinez's tournament comes to an end, but he can hold his head high after some excellent showings, as he's replaced by Yonathan Del Valle.
79' The tempo has understandebly fizzled out as we approach the final 10 minutes. Both sides have put in spirited and relentless performances tonight, so it should come as no surprise that tired legs are setting in as the two coaches prepare more changes.
77' S. Rondón gets yellow.
Rondon gets into a battle with Otamendi and sends the defender flying to the ground. He's shown yellow and reacts furiously! The referee warns him to calm down, and he should probably listen or his match will come to an early end.
