The Team were spared too much criticism after the Mundial simply because we could say we went to the World cup with a largely young team that lacked Experience. The game against Argentina was a case where the in experience showed so much. A more tested, matured team would not have lost that game. But we move on, We are now faced with Opposition that the entire football loving community will expect we win, so no excuses will be Tolerated if we fail to do so.
