It just takes one ball to be in the right place at the right time and you'll be in. Brazil had the better of the chances and if they continue in that vein they will win the match. Whatever happens it was the best half we've seen in this World Cup. You just couldn't take your eyes off it."

    This impressed the president of Newell's Old Boys, who put him in charge of Argentino de Rosario, effectively Newell's feeder club. His greatest success then came at Universidad de Chile, who he led to three national titles and the 2011 Sudamericana
