Just when you started to forget about it, Argentina´s first friendly match of 2007 is just around the corner.
We are just two weeks away from the attractive clash between France and the Albiceleste at the Stade de France in Saint Denis (Paris).
While we wait for COCO´s squad to be announced by the manager himself later today, there is strong speculation around one big name that could be making his return to the national team.
It’s not under the happiest situation but he might be recalled due to a number of injuries in players that cover his position.
I’m talking about Javier ZANETTI. We have to wait and see but knowing that BASILE likes to play with classic and traditional defensive backs, PUPI has every chance of earning yet another cap and prove PEKERMAN wrong after the former manager didn´t give him a ticket to the Germany World Cup.
I think that this is a great chance for ZANETTI to prove he is still an elite player.
As for the rest of the squad, I´m hoping to see Diego MILITO getting the call and I would like to see Sergio AGUERO in action too.
MESSI, TEVEZ, Leo FRANCO, SORIN, Fabricio FUENTES and Pablo ZABALETA are all out with injuries so I expect at least a couple of surprising names to be pulled out of the hat by COCO.
Don´t know if I´ll be online when COCO announces the list so I trust any of the readers of this blog will post it in a comment below.
