Argentina losing that big is some news.. but read this before u ask yourself why they lost... here are extenuating circumstances. Bolivia’s national stadium in La Paz stands at 3,600 meters, or 12,000 feet, the highest arena where international soccer is played on earth.

The air is thin, the heat of the afternoon was appreciable, and Bolivia’s extraordinary tempo was sustained for so long that the ill-prepared Argentines were reduced to exhaustion long before the end.

Bolivians are used to play on that kind of height and the advantage is probably the biggest reason of that high result..

I am hoping for all former Yugoslavian teams to make it ..

if not this time then the next qualifications..
