Coverage of Argentina's classification to the second round of the World Cup
After defeating Spain and Switzerland, and tying West Germany, Argentina looks ahead to the knock-out stages of the World Cup. The coverage is mostly positive, with a poor win over Switzerland the exception. Nonetheless, the recurring themes are that Argentina finally came together, that few would have believed such success, and that from now on the team will simply play with a chip on its shoulder (an "us against them" mentality aimed at critics and Europeans who do not respect South Americans).
