 Football | England v Argentina - A history
The very notion that football would become the ruling passion of Argentine society would have seemed as implausible to Watson Hutton as the discovery that, 90 years after he brought the game to Argentina, a couple of Argentine players would be taking English football by storm.
But, mad as the Brazilians are about football, they are not as serious about it, ultimately, as the Argentines; they are too in love with the aesthetics of the game, with the choreography and the dance, to invest it with the gritty solemnity of purpose one finds in England and Argentina.
Because of all the crises Argentina has endured in the past 50 years, since the days when it used to be one of the 10 richest nations in the world, the one it is enduring today is the worst of all.

Canada - lacrosse is the official summer sport and ice hockey is the official winter sport, but hockey is by far the sport most closely followed, and most closely linked to national pride.

Professional football arrived in the country in 1931, following the success of the national team at the 1928 Olympic Games and the 1930 World Cup Finals; on both occasions, Argentina were runners-up to their great rivals Uruguay.
Argentina's achievements did not go unnoticed in Europe, and many members of the side were lured away from the domestic league by the greater riches on offer in Italy.
This had a knock-on effect on the national side: to avoid a repeat of that poaching, Argentina sent a third-rate side to the 1934 finals (in Italy, ironically) and did not make a serious challenge for football's greatest prize until some 40 years later.
