Mourinho Slams Argentina Keeper After Costly Howler

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has slammed Argentina goalkeeper Willy Caballero after his massive howler in the Albiceleste's 3-0 shock defeat to Croatia.

The shot-stopper was at fault for Croatia's first goal in Thursday night's defeat, when, in an attempted clearance, he miskicked the ball to Croatia's Ante Rebic, who volleyed home.

Mourinho, who is working as a TV analyst for Russia Today during the World Cup, had some harsh words for Chelsea's second-choice keeper.

"One chance, one goal. Caballero in goal or myself would be the same because I would save the same as Caballero, there was not one single dangerous situation," he said.

Caballero was initially Argentina's reserve goalkeeper but United's Sergio Romero sustained a knee injury in the build-up to the tournament.

Argentina will now be keeping a close eye on the outcome of the other Group D clash between Nigeria and Iceland later on Friday. If Iceland win, they will have four points, and Argentina's World Cup would be as good as over after collecting only one point from their first two games.

However, if Nigeria beat the smallest nation in World Cup history, Lionel Messi and company will still have their fate in their own hands as they could progress with a win against the Super Eagles in their final group fixture.

Is this the worst Argentina team you have seen? Have your say in the comments section below.
