Argentina's best team: My opinion

World Cup Argentina

comment on the article

Maradona has done a bad job at a great nation with great players, but all he needs to do is pick his best team, instead of experimenting EVERY SINGLE GAME! This team would beat Uruguay, he only has to realise it:

------------------------------Romero-----------------------------

Zabaleta---------Demichelis-----------Heinze---------------Insua

-------------------Mascherano----------Gago----------------------

-----------------------------Riquelme----------------------------

Tevez-------------------------------------------------------Messi

------------------------------Aguero-----------------------------

They will destroy Uruguay, and qualify for the WC2010, unlike my Sweden :'(

You would have to stoned on a kilo of Coke to think Argentina can achieve anything in the next World Cup.

They must give it out by the truck load every time it gets close to a world cup in England.

They have so many great attacking players but lack in defence.

Gk - No-one especially good.

RB - Zanetti - ageing, Zabaleta - average
LB - Heinze - ageing, insua - uproven at top level
CB - Demichelis - very good, Gonzalo - good, Otamendi - unproven,

CM - Cambiasso ,Mascherano, Gago, Lucho - all quality.

AM - Riquelme, Veron,Aimar - all quality

WINGERS - Maxi, Messi, Di Maria, Lavezzi - all world class

Up front - Aguero, Forlan, Higuain - all world class. Tevez very good and Palermo average.


So much choice - just a question of picking the right players for the right matches.

Having achieved this milestone, Maradona should quit now and preserve his legacy. His poor team selection and tactical ability will result in an early exit in SA.

Really and trully they should have finished behind brazil, best brazil 11 Vs best argentina 11 should be close, but Brazil has a lot more strength and depth in there squad and a way better coach
