* ABOUT ARGENTINA: It had a tougher time than expected in its opener against Japan, winning by only 1-0 on a goal by Gabriel Batistuta. Injured defender Jose Chamot is expected to return.

* ABOUT JAMAICA: The Jamaicans acquitted themselves respectably in a 3-1 loss to Croatia. They’re not afraid of anyone, but the only points they get might be for audacity.

* OUTLOOK: Argentine coach Daniel Passarella said his team has more to offer than it showed against Japan and was merely nervous in its debut. Jamaica, needing points, is likely to take some risks. Argentina is fully capable of exploiting every mistake the Jamaicans make.
