The winner will face Mexico. Lose and you’ll play against Portugal. A draw and it’ll be Tango vs. Tequila.
Unlike the previous two matches, Jose PEKERMAN is playing hide and seek and a couple of hours before the game, our lineup was yet to be confirmed.
But now we’re ready to go with these eleven men:
BURDISSO, AYALA, MILITO, CUFRE (a surprising move by PEKERMAN, leaving SORIN out of the team)
MAXI RODRIGUEZ, MASCHERANO, CAMBIASSO, RIQUELME.
And up front, the People’s favourite: TEVEZ and MESSI.
A great mix and some surprises, but no doubt PEKERMAN wants to win the group and the ‘Atomic Flea’ Lionel MESSI is making his first start in a World Cup. Here’s hoping for him to have a great romance with this tournament like the great Diego, who will be cheering him from the stands as our number one supporter!
I’ll be watching it, of course, but if you want, you can join me here and we can comment on the match as things happen.
