The thing I remember the most is that it was absolutely freezing. There was snow and ice on the ground. I remember doing a tackle and sliding right off the pitch across the ice.
On 25 May 1991, a friendly match between the two teams was played at Wembley. Argentina, now under the management of Alfio Basile, were preparing for the forthcoming Copa Amrica 1991, which they went on to win. The South Americans had a new generation of players mainly playing locally, replacing the very successful group of the previous two World Cup tournaments. The game was mostly under the control of England, but near the end, Argentina came back from two goals down to draw 22. Daro Franco and Claudio Garca scored with headers.
At the end of the game, England's Steve Hodge swapped shirts with Maradona, a shirt Hodge would later loan out to the National Football Museum in the 2000s. Maradona praised the English as they did not use rough tactics like the other teams that frequently fouled and knocked him over.
The rivalry is unusual in that it is an intercontinental one; typically such footballing rivalries exist between countries that are close to one another, for example FranceItaly or ArgentinaBrazil.

At the club level, matches have also been heated. Argentine and English clubs have not had many chances to play against each other, but when they have done so there have been notable incidents. The most memorable matches happened in the now defunct European/South American Cup. In 1968, Estudiantes de La Plata played against Manchester United for the Cup, then known as the "Intercontinental Cup". The first leg was in Buenos Aires, where Estudiantes' supporters were highly vocal and the game was played in a very physical manner with a disputed red card and physical injury. Manchester United could not recover the 10 deficit in the second leg and Estudiantes won the title.

Argentines such as Mauricio Pochettino and Marcelo Bielsa are presently managers at English clubs.
Half of Japans 20 outfield players are 22 years old or younger, and only three players are older than 28. Last years U-20 team, featuring four players now on the main squad, took home the countrys first-ever title in the U-20 World Cup, so the youngest Japanese players do have some big-game experience. But this team will rely heavily on elders like captain Saki Kumagai to provide composure and maturity through the knockout rounds.

Much of the colour and intensity in this rivalry is added by the fans themselves. While matches prior to the 1982 Falklands War generated interest and emotion, it was the war itself that fuelled passions and elevated this rivalry. Before the 1986 game fans from both countries had a fight in the Mexico City streets and into the stadium too, which included English flags stolen by the Argentine fans and a lot of Englishmen injured by the Argentine barras bravas.
