The start for my favourites – Argentina with a decently strong side Nigeria. Match # 3 Day 2 of the FIFA world cup.
Argentina – The country known for their dedicated football talent and this year is all the more brilliant because of the form that Messi is in and the team is under the coach Diego Maradona, star himself and who has seen the similar situations in 3 world cups in good form – 1978, 1982 and the epitome of success 1986 world cup. this team is absolutely charged and I hope they would be going Romero in the poles. the current team allows them both the classic 4-4-2 combination and also 3-3-2-2 combination for the versatality of jonas gutierazz. So the Albicelestes are back and will be be back with a bang and can maradona be the carlos bilardo of 1986. Lets hope and wait and watch.
Stars to look out for – Maradona himself, Messi, jonas gutierazz, walter samuel, demishelles, veron, maschereno,
Uruguay – Their rivalry on the field with Argentina starts from the 1930 worldcup where they beat them 4-2. they have won the next worldcup in 1950 against brazil. Can they repeat the same form this worldcup? They have a good ammo in their team too.. no one can match the technical expertise and experience of nkankowa kanu. We cannot discount the ability of odemwingie and martins.
Stars to watch for – obi mikel, martins, odemwingie, etuhu
I am not expert to judge between the legends. I am going very careful in taking a draw or a win with Argentina for this match.
