The legendary Gabriel BATISTUTA gave his thoughts on the Argentina National Team and stated that the only number 9 we have is Gonzalo HIGUAIN.
Gabriel BATISTUTA knows a thing or two about scoring goals. He also knows a thing or two about scoring goals at a FIFA World Cup. Speaking with Tiempo de Colombia, the former Argentina international spoke about HIGUAIN and the National Team. Here’s what he had to say:
“The only number 9 we have is HIGUAIN. One of the skills that a complete number 9 must have is to be able to adapt to his team mates. The number 9 wants to score goals but before anything, he wants the team to win. What he was missing was luck.”
Gabriel BATISTUTA on Argentina not winning the World Cup:
“If we think that not being champions is a failure, we are wrong. Today, we are not a machine. And when we were a machine, we exited in the first round (the 2002 FIFA World Cup). The World Cup is not always won by the best, even though Germany always make the semi-finals.”
Another former Argentina number 9, Hernan CRESPO posted the following picture of himself alongside Gabriel BATISTUTA.
