Okay, fine. Here's some context: The KICKTV crew flew down to Buenos Aires for Boca-River, learned about why it's the craziest rivalry in the world, and our friends from the Buenos Aires Fútbol Amigos even set up a mini-Superclásico the morning of the real match.
This afternoon in Buenos Aires, Boca Juniors play River Plate at the infamous La Bombonera. Argentina stops and drapes itself in blue and yellow or red and white. Buenos Aires beats to the drum of the two powerhouses.
Today, there was white smoke in the air. Whether you were interested or not, we found out the new Pope is Argentinean Jorge Bergoglio. We also found out that he loves the footy, thanks to the almighty power of the internet.
The night Roman returns. By Gonza Rodriguez x Dale con Comba.
The Argentine Clausura is in full force, but tonight Juan Roman Riquelme returns to La Bombonera to suit up for Boca Juniors. After a long spell of contemplating retirement, tonight will be the first time JRR is playing in 8 months, and for the occasion our two incrediblejefes capos artists based in South America created something special.
With the final international break of the European season now firmly behind us, we have a full programme of domestic matches from right across the globe to look forward to this weekend. Though campaigns in the Western hemisphere may still be in their early stages, there are a number of other leagues approaching their final run-ins.

Veinticinco años después de su victoria en la Copa del Mundo, César Luis Menotti y sus jugadores vuelven sobre este episodio ambiguo de la historia de la Argentina, comandada entonces por la junta militar del general Videla.
Veintiocho años después del Sudamericano por entonces Sub-16 disputado en el país, Argentina vuelve a ser sede el torneo de la categoría. Como es habitual en cada edición, este Sudamericano otorga cuatro plazas para el Mundial que se disputará en los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, del 17 de octubre al 8 de noviembre.
It has been said that World Cup qualifying in South America is more tightly-contested than in any other of the continental federations within FIFA. Pittingthe likes of Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, Ecuador and Argentina, who have all graced the top 12 of the FIFA World Rankings in the past year, against each other for a spot at the world's biggest sporting tournament, it is no surprise that despite only 10 national teams CONMEBOL consistently provides some of the most memorable matches during the qualification phase.
The living legend's finally showing up for his nation, and Argentina are swiftly on their way to qualifying for the World Cup. This past weekend, Lionel Messi was in fine form as Argentina beat Venezuela 3-0. TV Publica in Argentina had a camera on Leo the whole match, and while it's not Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, this compilationis just asmesmerizing.
Argentina visitó ocho veces La Paz por eliminatorias. Los 3604 metros sobre el nivel del mar del estadio Hernando Siles inclinaron la balanza a favor de los anfitriones, con 4 victorias. Argentina ganó 3 y empataron 1.

The "$1.35 Million Dollar Man"? You know how the old saying goes: "when one Argentine door closes, another Argentine midfielder opens up". Then they say something in Spanish. Then they complain about The Falkland Islands for a bit. Then we tango.
Hot on the heels of Toronto FC withdrawing (or vice-versa) from a potential deal to bring Argentine striker Maximiliano Urruti to town, a full transfer for Argentino Juniors' midfielder Matias "Don't make us do that nickname" Laba seems to be done.
No Pat... we said "Young DP" You can take his face off of the sides of those milk cartons - Kevin Payne was not missing after all. On the heels of Torsten Frings' almost emotional and extremely classy goodbye to TFC, the club president was finally forced to update his very concerned fan base about the lack of incoming players.
Playing tiki-taka with the interwebs Sebastián Driussi scores a beautiful overhead kick for Argentina under-17. Shades of Trevor Sinclair.

Newcastle United have had an injury-plagued season. Frenchman and creative midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa has been out most of the season, which has hurt Newcastle's attack. But, the injuries haven't stopped there. Yohan Cabaye, Steven Taylor, and Cheick Tiote are all key members of the side who have been bit by the injury bug.
Arguably the best goal you'll see from a teen the name's Sebastian Driussi this year. Probably the best goal you'll see this month. Possibly the most spectacular failed save in an under-17 match in some time, too.
But definitely a question as to whether the Argentina goalkeeper is actually Lionel Messi's older brother.
In just the third minute of Argentina's South American U-17 Championship match against Uruguay, Sebastian Driussi pulled off an exquisit overhead kick from just outside the box. Set up by a lovely cross, Driussi chested the ball up and then launched a powerful overhead kick past Uruguay's keeper.
The River Plate youth celebrated with the requisite T-shirt message, but instead of immediately requesting video of the goal so he could show everyone he will ever meet, he scored again in the 12th minute to make it 2-0 for the host nation.
Given the holy surroundings of Argentina's two greatest footballing products, Diego Maradona (having inspired the Church of Maradona) and Lionel Messi (the linear nature of Messiah and all), Pope Francis, also of Argentina and a fan of San Lorenzo, was bound to kick the internets into action. He did indeed, even inspiring some of Argentina's print editions.
Uruguay going out of World Cup as Suarez could face ban - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Luis Suarez always grabs the headline in one way or the other. The Liverpool forward is well known for his gift of sublime skills and extra-ordinary 'genius' abilities on pitch, but he has a darker side too which time and again comes into the forefront eclipsing all his good work.
I wore my Argentina shirt to work yesterday, as I was excited about Argentina getting revenge for the 1-0 away defeat to Venezuelan in the first round of the qualifiers. While Venezuela has been rising over the last years, the one thing they have still not achieved is to get a point in Argentina. And it was not to happen: Sabella's Argentina was superior to Venezuela in all respects, and in spite

Ahead of Argentina's World Cup qualifier against Bolivia tomorrow night, La Albiceleste have been enjoying a traditional "asado" (barbecue) with their cooks.An asado which is the Spanish term for 'barbecue' consists of beef alongside various other meats, cooked on an open fire. Javier Mascherano snapped that classic photo above with the proud cooks and posted it on his Twitter profile last night.
Generation Next: 10 Best Young Footballers at Al Kass International Cup 2013 is a post from: Just Football

Did you know that the newly-sworn in Pope Francis (or Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio) is a fan of Argentinean side, San Lorenzo?
According to a report in The New York Times, the Pope has been a San Lorenzo aficionado for "as long as he has been a Catholic". Interestingly, the name of the club comes from a priest named Lorenzo Massa, who founded the team by inviting young boys to come in off the streets to play football in his churchyard.
Jorge Bergoglio, el nuevo Papa, es hincha y socio de San Lorenzo de Almagro, un club que, al parecer, siempre estuvo ligado a la Iglesia. En base al texto publicado en Goal.com Argentina Definitivamente el apodo no es casual. "Cuervos", uno de los modos de referirse a San Lorenzo de Almagro, no viene del ave sino de la manera popular de referirse a los sacerdotes de la Iglesia Católica, cubiertos totalmente con las sotanas negras.
"Everybody's got a price!" (Argentine Virgil not pictured) "Young DP" hasn't been talked about this much since the unfounded rumours of a 'Young MC' sex tape all those years ago. Alas, "Bust A Move/Nut" turned out to be a hoax but that doesn't stop DP fever from hitting a crescendo in the TFC nether regions.
Mañana martes comienza la semana más movida del año para el Real Madrid. Si ya de por sí un Clásico entre los dos eternos rivales siempre levanta revuelo, que se disputen dos Barcelona-Madrid en cinco días despierta un auténtico morbo entre los aficionados al deporte rey.
