Brazil 3 - Argentina 0: Signalling the end of the classic "passing" game?

Argentina wanted to play the game with the classic passing style, but it came unstuck against Brazil's rapid counterattacking offense and a compact defense. And, not to forget the 37 fouls to interrupt the fluid passing game. Football has taken more of a physical nature over the last couple of decades, and this seems to have left many of the south-american nations behind. Argentina, the most popular of such nations, and the team I have been supporting ever since I was a kid, will keep searching for their trophy while still playing their way! History will tell us if they get there or change their style. As a football (soccer) fan, I just hope the classic passing game comes back in a big way :).
