It seems like everybody and their grandmother’s are talking about Argentina, including the great RONALDINHO who has now commented on the team.
Argentina possibly missing out on the 2018 World Cup has the footballing world talking. Including two Brazilian players, who have come out and commented on the situation. Brazilian and football legend RONALDINHO has came out supporting the Argentina National Team. Speaking with GianlucaDiMaria.com, RONALDINHO had this to say:
RONALDINHO compares Argentina to Brazil:
“What’s going on with Argentina? I had a similar thing happen to me before the 2002 World Cup. We had a lot of difficulties qualifying and after that we won the title. Football is like this. Maybe that can happen to them.
The legend also spoke with Fox Sports Argentina where he simply said:
“I hope Argentina make the World Cup”
One person who is currently in the Brazil squad, MIRANDA, also commented on the situation. Brazil play their final World Cup Qualifying match at home to Chile and there has been speculation and fear from many that Brazil would throw the match or make it easy for Chile to win or draw. Brazil have never lost a World Cup Qualifier at home. With that said, MIRANDA had this to say about the entire situation:
MIRANDA on Argentina situation:
“Our goal is to play well and win the matches. A World Cup without Argentina, Germany or Brazil loses its charm. Our obligation is to play football and win. When we were playing badly, no one helped us. We conquered everything through our own merit. If they qualify, it’ll be because they earned it.”
