the truth is I never left you,
all through my wild days,
my mad existance,
I kept my promise-
don't keep your distance..."
-From Andrew Lloyd-Webber's musical, "Evita".
A country that shouldn't cry for Eva Peron (despite that the historical Eva never said that).
The Argentinean population is of European descent: Italian, Spanish, German, French, etc. We don't pretend to be europeans. Although because of the european ancestry (btw not common in the rest of Latin America), we feel closer to the european culture than to the latin american one. at lest thats how i feel.
And yes, there are arrogant people and cheaters, just like everywhere else, but not everybody's like that.(and i bet the one who said we cheat at football is english)
Competent in sports, said to have arrogant natives, with an economy always "recovering amazingly from" or "sinking in" crisis, plenty of great beef, but that should always be remembered for the hotness and sluttynes of its women.
"Years before the Argentines won in 1978 and 1986"
"What team did England play against when Beckham was red carded in 1998? That's right, Argentina."

Beginning in 1865, foreigners from Wales, UK made a settlement in the Patagonia region of Argentina. It is still there today and the people there still speak Welsh. Apart from Welsh people's, Argentina is home to Germans, French, Dutch, and Polish people. Spanish, Italian, and French descendants make most of the population. 6% of Argentines have Indigenous backgrounds, mostly compromised from the Salta and Jujuy region in Argentina bordering Bolivia and Paraguay.

Most, if not all, southern countries wish to be like Argentina, including Brazilians who are envious of Argentines in every single way. This has led to Argentines being some of the most conceited and egocentric people in the world.
