Basketball – Argentina vs. Lithuania
Just about the same time, Manu GINOBILI and his band of brothers will kick off their campaign against European heavyweight Lithuania. Not an easy game in my opinion but I believe Sergio HERNANDEZ has all the ingredients on his team that he can muster for this game.
I would not question about the Tall Albiceleste offensive but the defense will be put through to stern test. They must be able to contained Linas KLEIZA (Denver Nuggets), Sarunas JASIKEVICIUS and Ramunas SISKAUSKAS.
Overall, it would be close encounter but my faith is in our boys to come with a win. As you all know, our buddy Seba will be there reporting at the Wukesong Arena.
Field Hockey – Argentina vs. USA
The best possible chance for any of our ladies to win gold in this Summer Game. Winning the Champions trophy in Germany just a few months ago might prove to a huge morale boost for Gabriel MINADEO and his girls.
