Title

La Atenas deportiva en sudamérica

Subject

Buenos Aires has become, according to the magazine, an "Athens" of sports

Description

Citing the success of Argentine auto racing, tennis, and especially soccer, Argentina has emerged as a sporting nation valued across the world. Players like Labruna, Di Stefano, Ricagni, as well as coaches like Stabile, are sought after by Europe's most prestigious clubs. In addition, Spanish and English players returned home marveling at the quality of Argentine players. No doubt this is a typical "fluff" piece but one that stands out for the concern that Argentines had towards foreign perceptions. While the article's thrust is that Argentina is at the apex of the soccer world, its value is only measured by how much European clubs value Argentine players and coaches.
