This post is rushed, sorry! I have to go to work. Last night I got home late after the game and uploaded all my pics from the game and before. I'll do a proper post when I get home tonight.

But here are some pics from the game that were posted online at the sports sites last night, plus a few of mine!

NO big name players for River! Except Matias Abelairas played all game, Rodrigo Archubi, Mauro Diaz and Lucas Orban played most of it. Augusto Fernandez was subbed on at 64 minutes. We got to see Erik Lamela too. He was subbed on near the end. Standouts were Leandro Chichizola in goal. He made some amazing stops, making the crowd "Ooohhh" and "Ahhhh". Matias Abelairas was really good, but the surprise for me was just how skilled Rodrigo Archubi is. He really wowed the fans with some spectacular plays and moves. He ran the most and covered the most ground as well. He has a patented back-heel pass that he used at least a dozen times and thrilled the crowd with. Everyone thought he was amazing.

The game wasn't so hot. It ended in a scoreless draw (I HATE that!) but since this was a cup tournament, it went to penalty kicks. Toronto FC was horrible at penalties (I thought as much) so River won 4-2. Leandro Chichizola stopped a pen! He was amazing! And Augusto Fernandez' hit the crossbar! *facepalm* I think he *facepalmed* too!

Okay, then, here is a teaser:

RIVER PLATE GAME PICS HERE! )

It looks like Falcao was all set to head out of Buenos Aires, except for a slight problem. It seems that River still owes him a lot of money, over 400,000 euros, which has stalled his transfer to Benfica in Lisbon, Portugal. Now it looks like Liverpool FC in England might be interested in him.

Below the cut are a couple of articles I reprinted.

I just ordered my tickets for the Toronto FC vs River Plate game on July 22nd! I'm so excited I can hardly type! Barring any problems (like my credit card won't be accepted or something - shouldn't happen but you never know) I should be receiving my tickets early next week! I asked for them to be Fed-ex'd to me so I'd have them in my hot, sticky little hands ASAP!!!!

Oh my GOD. I'll be seeing the likes of Falcao, Buonanotte, Gustavo Cabral and my favourite, Augusto Fernandez....IN PERSON!!!! Maybe even getting their autographs!!!! Oh god, I think I am going to faint!!!

(Actually, with my luck, none of those four will be here for the game!)
Mustn't be negative....mustn't be negative....LOL

Have you noticed that some teams are just prettier than others? Especially when they celebrate?
This picspam spans the past week, with Champions League, UEFA Cup and League action so far, up to and including Saturday. (It excludes Real Madrid because I posted a separate picspam on them.)

BEST PICS FROM TODAY )

River has been doing extremely well during this Clausura, and sit at the top of the league, tied on points with Estudiantes. The battle has been awesome, with 6 teams so close on points that almost anything could happen! The table looks like this currently:

River - 30 points
Estudiantes - 30 points
Velez Sarsfield - 27 points
San Lorenzo - 27 points
Independiente - 26 points
Boca Juniors - 26 points

I can't believe that Boca is in sixth place! But since they are only 4 points out of first place, like I said - anything could happen. Boca and San Lorenzo are still alive in the Copa Libertadores, but after the first leg, both teams are at a disadvantage going into the second leg.

Anyway, just because River Plate has been such an exciting team to watch during the Clausura, and have some of the cutest, most talented players, I want to devote a picspam to them. All pics are from games during April and May this year.
