Edgardo BAUZA loves to talk and this time, he revealed who his starting number 9 will be.
As Argentina prepare to take on Peru this week in the South American World Cup Qualifiers, there were question marks as to who the starting striker will be. Gonzalo HIGUAIN, Lucas PRATTO or Lucas ALARIO. Speaking with TyC Sports, BAUZA revealed who it would be. Here’s what he had to say:
“If he’s well, the number 9 will be HIGUAIN.”
“Playing a bit behind (the number 9), he can have a great match. In place of MESSI, it could be DYBALA or Angel CORREA. I’ll decide once I see them.”
“I’ll see how KRANEVITTER is and if he’ll start with MASCHERANO in the midfield. KRANEVITTER isn’t the same as BANEGA, but tactically speaking, they’re similar. Peru attacks with a lot of bodies and Argentina will have to be well organized.”
Talking about the famous list of 60 players:
“I’m paying attention to all the players. There’s a lot of them playing at a very good level. We have a list of 60 players we are following. There’s players doing really well at the moment, like ACUNA and BELLUSCHI and we are following them.”
