The La Albiceleste probably has one of the best offensive line-up in the 2010 World Cup Soccer. Their coach Diego Maradona was having a real tough time in deciding what three forwards will he be playing in his starting line. But the wait is finally over. Maradona announced that he will be spearheading the Argentinean attack with Carlos Tevez, Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain for their World Cup opener in which they encounter Nigeria on this Saturday.
The Argentinean coach is trying to cut down on the media spotlight from his team in order to hush up their last minute practices and strategies. Very few journalists were granted permission to watch the match between their Star 11 and the team’s substitutes. The match was won by the Star 11 with a 2-0 victory after Higuain and Javier Mascherano combined to score the goals. In another match, Argentina defeated a rookie team with a lone goal by Sergio Aguero.
The La Albiceleste is the most likely candidates to come out as victors from Group B which also consists of Greece and South Korea. Although in a tough group, but their qualification round suggests that they better be cautious in South Africa.
The most likely approach by Maradona to start the match would be with Sergio Romero goalkeeping between the posts. Along with him, defenders Gabriel Heinze, Martin Demicheli ช่องทางเข้า ufabet มือถือ s and Walter Samuel will make sure that the defence is further fortified. The midfield will be controlled by Jonas Gutierrez, Angel Di Maria, Mascherano and Juan Sebastian Veron.
Defender Heinze stated that Maradona had ultimately straightened everything out and the team looked well prepared for the football world cup 2010. He also clarified that the plans will no longer be as confusing as before. An unpredictable Maradona went through 107 players to make sure what his final 23 men will be like for the World Cup in South Africa this summer.
Heinze told while talking to media that Maradona had prepared them well for the tournament. He said, “We’re all really good without any problems and fired up to get on the field. We’ve been practicing at a very good level, and you’ll see it on Saturday”.
Critics are complaining about Maradona’s controversial tactics of training the team in his notorious attempts to further unite them and prepare the lot – both physically and mentally. On the contrary, the players have shown full confidence in Maradona, claiming openly that they had their doubts in the beginning about their coach’s capability to manage the team. Nevertheless, all the Argentinean players have in fact become close friends.
