Argentina WC qualification squad


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

The home based players will be named at the end of the month but when you look at the list below you have to wonder whether they need anyone else. That is until you realise two of the players are from Newcastle...........

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (AZ Alkmaar), Juan Pablo Carrizo (Real Zaragoza), Mariano Andujar (Catania)

Defenders: Nicolas Burdisso, Javier Zanetti (both Inter Milan), Gabriel Heinze (Olympique Marseille), Fabricio Coloccini (Newcastle United), Nicolas Pareja (Espanyol)

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Liverpool), Fernando Gago (Real Madrid), Maximiliano Rodriguez (Atletico Madrid), Jonas Gutierrez (Newcastle United), Jesus Datolo (Napoli)

Forwards: Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid), Carlos Tevez (Manchester City), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Napoli), Diego Milito (Inter Milan), Lisandro Lopez (Olympique Lyon)

Atomic forward line, average midfield and a decidedly poor defense.

Unless they score plenty, I don't see them doing much.

EDIT: G4, completely agree about Maradona. We (Bulgaria) tried the same with Stoichkov and it was a disaster. The huge ego and lack of experience won't do him much good.

How the hell did Coloccini get in the team? He's an absolute f**king liability, even at Championship level.

Same with Gutierrez, he's just a crap Dirk Kuyt (and that's saying something!).

Famous last words... they've both been pretty good the last two games.

A case of that player finally finding their level. If Newcastle were smart, they will give Colocinni away assuming they get promoted next year. He was lost this past year, a truly terrible CB.

But then again, Newcastle have a way of turning serviceable defenders into laughing stocks

Argentina are still only 4th in their qualifying group (which is the last qualifying spot) and play Brazil (who are top) at home next. If Brazil win (here is hoping they do with a blatant hand ball - yes I'm STILL bitter) and Ecuador beat Colombia then Argentina drop to fifth which is the play off position (they do make it easy for Brazil and Argentian don't they).

For all reasons of petty revenge I would take great schoolboy pleasure out of Argentina failing to qualify for the World up whilst Maradona is in charge.

I'm watching the Paraguay - Argentina match atm. Argentina are a shambles, with no cohesion whatsoever. Paraguay have been all over them, save a couple of good instances of personal brilliance (they do have Messi, after all).

The Argies are 1-0 down, and Veron got sent off after 50 minutes.

All 10 teams in the group play each other home and away and the top 4 teams qualify automatically for World Cup 2010. The fifth placed South American team will play off with a team from Concacaf (Caribbean, Central and North American Confederation)

October 14 2009

Brazil v Venezuela

Chile v Ecuador

Paraguay v Colombia

Peru v Bolivia

Uruguay v Argentina

October 10 2009

Argentina v Peru

Bolivia v Brazil

Colombia v Chile

Ecuador v Uruguay

Venezuela v Paraguay

If they do finish 5th, they will probably play either Honduras or Costa Rica- (outside chance it could be Mexico or El Salvador) -over 2 legs on the 14th and 18th November.

Wonder what the Argy press are saying about it all ?

The Argies scraped past (bottom of the table) Peru in Buenos Aires, with an injury time winner.

If they dont beat Uruguay (away) in the last game, the best they can do is 5th place (play off position), but if Ecuador beat Chile (who have already qualified for the WC) then the Argies will be out of next years tourney. :(

ive seen a couple of the chile games and they are a good outside bet for the 1/4 finals at least for me.

apprently they have had 73 different players in the squad over the campaign. Ridiculous. Maradona isn't good enough as a coach....eg that time he took them to Boliva (i think it was Bolivia) to a high altitude on the day of the game.
