Teams on Tour-Part 7 (Argentina’s Tour of 1984)

Carlos Salvador Bilardo had been appointed as the National Team Manager of Argentina following Cesar Luis Menotti’s exit after the 1982 World Cup.
His task was to prepare a Team for the 1986 World Cup.
Since his more defensive tactics were at odds with his predecessor, many of his predecessors’ choices were not adaptable to the new tactics (and/or were at the end of their cycle).
This meant an exit for the likes of Alberto Tarantini, Jorge Olguin, Daniel Bertoni, Americo Gallego, etc.
In 1983, Bilardo oversaw Argentina’s disappointing participation in the Copa America. In early 1984, his new look Argentina participated in the Jawarhalal Nehru Cup in India.
As part of the Team’s preparations, Argentina was to tour Europe in Late August/ Early September, book ended with matches at Colombia and Mexico.
The matches in Europe would be against Switzerland, Belgium and West Germany.
The likes of Superstar Diego Maradona, Jorge Valdano, Daniel Passarella and goalkeeper Ubaldo Fillol were still in favor, but Bilardo was restricted in calling them up since many played in Europe.
Maradona had just transferred to Napoli, Valdano had just joined Real Madrid and Passarella was still in Fiorentina.
Bilardo was building a base of a team from mostly home based players, playing with a more prosaic approach that had not pleased neither the fans nor the critics.
His team would be based around just recent Copa Liberatdores winners, Independiente.
Club Captain as well Bilardo’s initial choice as Team Captain would be Independiente defender Enzo Trossero. A few years before Trossero had a spell in Europe with French club Nantes but was now firmly back and established at home.
The lynchpin of the Team (in Maradona’s absence) would be another Independiente star, hard working midfielder Jorge Burruchaga. He would be the cornerstone of the Bilardo era and one of his set players throughout his tenure.
Other Independiente players included were veteran midfielder Ricardo Bochini (a favorite of Maradona) and Ricardo Giusti, another one of the able lieutenants of the Bilardo era.
Fillol’s unavailability gave opportunities to Nery Pumpido and Luis Islas to lay claim for the number one jersey for the Tour.
The other players who would feature prominently for Bilardo in the coming years were defenders Oscar Garre (Ferrocarril Oeste), Julian Camino (Estudiantes), Oscar Ruggeri (Boca Juniors, soon to jump ship to River Plate), Jose Luis Brown (a rarity on this tour, playing outside of Argentina at Colombia with Atlético Nacional Medellin) and Marcelo Trobbiani (Estudiantes).
Argentina’s tour commenced on August 24th in the worst possible way in a violent clash at Colombia. This was the first meeting between the Nations since 1972 and in all the previous encounters (five in total) Argentina had been undefeated.

The match in Bogota’s 'El Campín' was won by the home side, when Miguel Prince scored from a header in the 56th minute (Hernán Herrera supplying the cross).
Argentina had a poor match with only one clear chance through Ricardo Gareca midway through the first half.
The rest of the match was marred by the sending off of four players (including three from Argentina).
In the 59th minute, Ricardo Giusti and Colombia’s Alvaro Escobar were both sent off after a scuffle.

In the 80th minute, Argentina’s Captain Trossero was sent off after elbowing Pedro Sarmiento. He was followed a few minutes later by Ricardo Gareca who was sent off for kicking Carlos Ricaurte.
This incident started a general fight and the police had to intervene to restore order.
The home crowd booed the Argentines and debris was thrown from the stands on the Argentines.
The Colombian crowd shouted insults such as "Argentinos maricas!", "Argentinos animales" and "Argentinos Ilorones"  (crybabies).
Many players had wounds due to fighting and/or being struck with projectiles such as Trossero and apparently Bochini was hit by two coins.

After the events in Colombia (where they needed police protection), it must have come as a relief to leave the continent and head out to Europe.
The first match on the old continent was against Switzerland at Berne on August 29th.
In the days leading up to the match, Argentina Federation President Julio Grondona had made it clear to the players that incidents like the ones in Colombia would not be tolerated.
Argentina were missing the sent off trio from the previous match (Giusti, Trossero and Gareca).
Luis Islas, who much to his dismay had been left out of the Colombia match, got the nod to start in place of Pumpido and earn his first cap.
In defense, Julian Camino started ahead of Eduardo Saporiti.
Jose Luis Brown replaced the suspended Trossero, while Miguel Russo replaced Giusti.
In Trossero’s absence, Bilardo showed his faith and confidence on Burruchaga in naming the youngster as Captain.
For their part, the Swiss hosts were missing goalkeeper Erich Burgener and Lucien Favre.
Argentina impressed observers with its display and raced to a two-goal lead in the first half.

In the 7th minute, Marcelo Trobbiani’s cross evaded Marco Schallibaum and Jose Ponce chested it down and scored.
In the 34th minute, Jean-Paul Brigger’s pass to Roger Wehrli was intercepted by Oscar Dertycia, who went past Wehrli and scored.
The disappointing Swiss could have lost by more. They did tighten up in the second half and no further goals were scored.
Bilardo had been impressed and stated that  ‘for an hour we were perfect’.

Next match on the Tour was against Belgium at Brussels on September 5th. The two sides had last met in the opener of the last World Cup (1982) where the Belgians had surprisingly won (1-0).
This Belgium was still recovering a disappointing UEFA European Championships in France just months prior. They had been weakened from the after-effects of the Standard Liege/ Waterschei that had led to the suspensions of its Captain Eric Gerets and Walter Meeuws.
In addition starting goalkeeper Jean-Marie Pfaff missed this match through injury. Belgium Manager Guy Thys experimented by handing out a debut to forward Marc De Grijse.
For Argentina, Islas retained his position in goal. Trossero was back in the side, in place of Oscar Garre.
Ricardo Gareca was also back in the lineup, in place of Dertycia.
Jorge Burruchaga retained the captaincy for this match and rest of the tour.
Just like the previous match vs. Switzerland, the Argentines raced to a two-goal lead by halftime and held on to the (2-0) scoreline.

In the tenth minute, Jorge Burruchaga, from the left side crossed just outside the box and Marcelo Trobbiani trapped and volleyed home.
In the 36th minute, Jose Ponce took a corner from the right side and Oscar Ruggeri headed in the second goal.

Ruggeri would be sent off near the end of the match to bring the number of sending offs on the Tour to four.

Argentina’s performances had improved in these two matches but the biggest test lay ahead the following week on September 12th when they were to meet West Germany in Dusseldorf.
This was Franz Beckenbauer’s first match in charge of the Germans.
The Germans were missing regulars such as Captain Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Hans-Peter Briegel and Karlheinz Foerster.
Beckenbauer recalled Felix Magath and installed Hans-Gunther Bruns as Libero.
Bilardo chose to start with Pumpido in goal for this important test.
He also picked Giusti in place of Julian Camino and Oscar Garre started in place of the suspended Ruggeri in defense.
There had been attempts to include Ruggeri for the match. DfB President Hermann Neuberger had notified his Argentine Counterpart Julio Grondona that he had not received any notification from FIFA, but that the correct thing was not to play him due to article 11 of the regulation, that states an Expelled player is automatically suspended.
Once again Argentina took a quick two-goal lead in the first half and impressed observers with their technique and quick passing.

In the 5th minute, Ditmar Jakobs fouled Ricardo Gareca outside of the box. Jose Ponce scored from the ensuing free kick.

Ponce doubled Argentina’s lead in the 36th minute. Ricardo Gareca from the left passed it across to Burruchaga who then released Giusti on the right side. Giusti crossed into the goalmouth and Ponce sidefooted it in.

Argentina scored the third goal in the 58th minute.
Gareca received a long ball on the left side; he beat Jakobs and crossed for Burruchaga who tapped it into an empty net.

West Germany scored a consolation goal in the 79th minute, when Jakobs headed in a Magath free kick, taken from the left side.

The Germans could have scored another, but Lothar Matthaus’ attempt struck the post.
For the Argentines, Pumpido and Bochini had been impressive along with Trossero, Gareca and Burruchaga.
Felix Magath in particular singled out Pumpido, Bochini and Ponce.
Afterwards Beckenbauer was full of praise for Argentina.
He also stated that, he had watched Argentina’s matches against Belgium and Switzerland and had told his players exactly how they played. The Argentines played as he had predicted but his players had not listened to him.
He was nevertheless satisfied with last half hour and said ‘we have a lost a battle but not war’.

The European Leg of Argentina’s Tour had been a resounding success. The Argentines had just one more trip to Mexico on their way back home.
Some had questioned the wisdom of playing yet another friendly on a different continent after the success in Europe. Many had feared that physical and mental exhaustion would lead to injuries.
Islas and Ruggeri were back into the side in place of Pumpido and Brown to face Bora Milutinovic’s Mexicans at Monterrey on September 18th.
It turned out to be a balanced match with a goal from each side in the opening quarter hour.
Jorge Burruchaga enhanced his growing reputation in the side by opening the scoring for the Argentines in the 12th minute.

(September 18, 1984, Mexico 1-Argentina 1)

Jose Ponce crossed into the box; the ball was pushed out by the Mexican defense just outside the box to Burruchaga who took a hard shot into the goal.
Just three minutes later, Mexico tied up the match. Manuel Negrete took a direct corner from right side, Islas tried to handle it and hold it, but the ball crossed the line.
Afterwards Argentina appeared tired and not as motivated. It had after all been a long tour.
The score remained unchanged and Argentina ended its tour.

Despite the glow of the victories, it should be pointed out that the European Teams had just started their seasons and were perhaps not yet ready, while the Argentines had been playing for months.
In addition, the Germans were playing for the first time under a new Manager in a new system.
The one negative aspect of the Tour was the first match vs. Colombia. In some ways this match would also foreshadow some of the excesses of the Bilardo era. Argentina would resort to cynical tactics and violent play if needed under Bilardo that was plain to see by the 1990 World Cup.
Nevertheless, the tour was perceived as a success, especially because of the positive results in Europe. Most notably the victory over West Germany had given much hope to the Argentines.
They could only grow stronger once the likes of Maradona, Passarella, Juan Barbas, Fillol and Valdano were back in the fold.
Bilardo had also a clearer idea of the home-based players that he could call upon.
Many players who took part on this Tour would feature in the 1986 World Cup winning squad. These included Burruchaga, Giusti, Ruggeri, Garre, Pumpido, Brown and even the veterans Trobbiani and Bochini (who were able to make brief appearances).
This Tour had strengthened Bilardo’s position as Manager and given much needed exposure to up and coming players that was clearly beneficial for the then near future.
