  1. Our problem is our Argentinean style of play. Its great but not as affective in Modern day football. It looks good and i still love it but no result. It has to change and for that we need European coach to bring a variety in our style of play. Kinda like fusion. We keep our style but add up different tactics. We prolly have and had the best players in the game for the last 20/30 years. Its not Maradona era anymore. We have to move forward.

  2. What a bottlejob, the team that won U15 Sudamericana final from 2 goals deficit, and had to win against Brazil with 3 goals on U17 Sudamericana…chokes. Just like U20 ARG team they beat themselves, psychologists ASAP…btw Palacios passing is world class, 2 surreal through balls but Zeballos-Velasco change cost us the match…he was the most dangerous player…plus Godoy with 2 big wasted chances…

  3. Arg u17 – 2 goals up
    A good team. Zeballos, Godoy and Amione are very impressive. Unfortunately Amione (CB) will miss the next match if we are thru. But 1 player who is very especial, he is Matias Palacios, He reminds me of Requelme. Very good on the ball and a true playmaker. This team will be another golden generation.

  4. Palacios =kovacic
    De Paul = Vidal
    Ocampos left midfielder with freedom to run in wings
    Lb unfortunately tagliafico who is yet to prove in nt but I prefer acuna over him
    Cb duo quarta and pazella(need better option than pazella) ,rb foyth
    Parades deep lying playmaker
    Upfront messi and lautato with subs dybala and alario
    And now we need someone like fabinho and jorginho as cdm who are modern destroyers with good passing skills ,can tackle ,intercept , anticipate opponents attack ,start attack

  5. I think many mundo fans here should realize Lo Celso is not a 8, that’s why Setien used him as half 9 or 10 when he played in Betis and that’s why he was so good with around 15 goals and same number of assists. If you ask him to get the ball from a very deep position and hold it until he finds a target like Verratti or Xavi, it’s not his stuff. He likes to receive the ball in a more advanced position and then use short dribble or his vista to make the difference, same kind of player as Pastore. Last night he was used in this position and Alli was more box to box, with 2 powerful holding midfielders, it worked quite well.

    I believe that Scaloni should put a real CM(Palacios, Zaracho, Nico) or box to box winger(Acuna, Cervi, Buendia) as the 3nd midfielder next to his proteges Paredes and De Paul, then let Lo Celso in the playmaker position behind Messi and Lautaro. That makes more sense.

    Some may argue that it should be Messi in 10 but the truth is Messi is not a natural playmaker even though he can do the job. There is 1 necessary quality to be a playmaker that Messi doesn’t have, is to know how to play for the others.

  6. I may be wrong but with Messi there, every other left footed Players who play in the right side may struggle to find space or playing time, (Dybala, Lo Celso, if Nacho is picked ever), All these left footers operating space is invaded by Messi, because he is Messi He can do better than any other player in roaming around all over the pitch. Bar Acuna and Di Maria (Who both have to play in the Left wing) Its strange. Again I may be wrong. I always though 2 great players can easily operate together, but that came wrong with Messi and Dybala. They haven’t shown any spark together I guess till now.

  7. I said before and I’m saying now
    Gio lo celso is the best midfielder player
    Argentina have righ now I hope scaloni
