Bundles of talent up top but defence is a worry and midfield a bit of a lottery. Wouldn’t write them off for a bit of run though! angry fan 16 May, 2010 DEFENCE IS POOR! midfield is average, forward line is world class, NOT enough to WIN the world cup! able to make it to the last 8 only! KEYNO THOMPSON 17 May, 2010 I THINK GABRIEL MILLI TO SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN ARGENTINA WORLD CUP SQUAD BECAUSE HE IS A GOOD DEFENDER AND HE IS JUST COMING OFF AN INJURY AND HASN’T GET HIS CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF. marc 19 May, 2010 i think argentina are goin to win manjul kc 20 May, 2010 i am great fan of maradona but if he didn’t put pablo aimar it will be sure argentina lose…….. Dr.Shaswata Dhar Samrat 20 May, 2010 Gabriel Millito and Zanetti should have been included in diffence.Cambiaso,Gago,Riquelme should be in midfield.I am great fan of Argentina but sorry to say diffence is so poor,lack of experience in midfield. schizo 24 May, 2010 ….defence seems too much fragile..midfield is filled wid whimsically lazy, n inexperienced stuffs….forward is too bright! but, u gotta pass n make d ball availabl to d forwards…alone forwards jus can show their danglin balls 2 d rival gk…this is realy pathetic 4 a fan like me 2 accept…n i hate dat m. palermo shit. Faisal 24 May, 2010 Requelme was necessary. Too many strikers so it will be difficult for MARADONA to select. Messi & Tevez will be perfect……… midge123 25 May, 2010 No Zanetti. Why? How? stevan 28 May, 2010 why not zanetti and cambiaso.. not perfect squad badal 29 May, 2010 no pablo aimar requelma how come? argentina lose……………………………………..ha maradona why u forget pablo aimar requelma …….u crazy!

Can anyone compare Javier Zanetti to Clemente Rodriguez ? ofcourse Javier Zanetti is better .. and can anyone compare Veron to Esteban Cambiasso ? Cambiasso is better ! and I also don’t know why did he take that Martin Palermo !?? and didn’t take Lisandro Lopez ?? Awhhh They’re surely gonna lose these players ! Manny 3 June, 2010 This should of been our year we have so much talent but thanks to a jackass maradona Idon’t think it will happen GABA 6 June, 2010 I’m a big fan of Argentina National Team, but surely they are going to miss this one again thankx to Diego Maradona Team Selection, it wont go anyway, wat a disastrous team, old men are chosen who are supposed to have retired/rested, Maradona is just like France coach, he is clueless. BONY ADAM 6 June, 2010 god is with u DIEGO, go ahead and goal…… justino 6 June, 2010 But maradona why!! confused or biased!! No zanneti, camiaso, lisandro lopez, aimar, riquelme. whoever did this selection is purely sentimental and will do Argentina no good. crazy maradona What the ell ? 6 June, 2010 Maradona was not even near to be the greatest footballer in history, sad. People just try to make of him a legend, while he’s not. Argentina’s team is pretty good in my point ot view. But they’ll not win, once again. Reza 8 June, 2010 go ahead like tiger. you will win the cup. Farhad 9 June, 2010 Maradona is my soooooooooo much favorite player. Good luck Boss, Good Luck Argentina.

ARGENTINAAA WINNERRRR victorea 2 July, 2010 ARGENTINA ARE THE BEST Devraj Singh Rawat 3 July, 2010 My favourite team Argentina will wash GERMANY Maradona will win the cup 2010 messi is great Max 3 July, 2010 Sad but true Maradona lost it out by taking pathetic defenders to this World Cup. It’s been 24 years since they won and today was was Maradona’s worst master stroke because they were pathetic every where. Veron would have been better to run the play instead of Maxi because it would have freed Messi. Man Maradona should have realized that he is not God and certainly not Fidel Castro’s blessings. Nisy 3 July, 2010 Yeah!!! We win!!! We wash argentinia!! Germany will win the cup 2010 because we have miroslav klose, thomas müller, bastian schweinsteiger, mesut özil and our great coach jogi löw!
