July 1 World Cup Open Thread

Angel di Maria and his side look to move on to the next round.

Ronald Martinez

Today's schedule brings us two interesting matchups. First, ADM and Argentina will take on a talented, but somewhat inexperienced, Swiss side while 'Merica will face off against Thibault Courtois and darkhorse Belgium later today.

Honestly, I hope Argentina loses pretty badly today for a couple reasons. ADM would go home and rest in advance of the coming season, Leo Messi wouldn't taste World Cup glory and I think this Swiss side is super fun when playing to their full potential.

Also, 'MERICA. 'Nuff said.
