Try fest for Pumas, one step away from the QF

I'm actually writing this from the Stade Velodrome where a huge Albiceleste crowd are cheering Los Pumas as they are comprehensively defeating Namibia in their third Pool D match.

Right now, the score is 63-3. The win and the bonus point are already in the bag and the only thing keeping us from reaching the quarter-finals is the match against Ireland (September 30 at the Parc des Princes in Paris).

A win and we are through, avoiding a clash against the mighty All Blacks. A draw and we are through. A loss with Ireland not getting the bonus point and we are through!

All and all, an impressive performance by Los Pumas in this World Cup, where they are the only team in the tournament yet to concede a try! (typical...I finish writing this and they concede it! haha! Hopefully not!).

OK, I'm off to try and interview some of the players.

Superb performance. Simply awesome. Now the only thing that is stopping us from topping Pool D is just one point.

I'm nervous here about the prospect of playing the Irish. You'll just never when they might explode after their disastrous start.

But confidence and passion is the keyword that represent our Los Pumas. These two elements will carry them further then anyone's imagination.

Now Seba, is their possible of publishing those interview on this blog :-)
