Argentina veteran Javier MASCHERANO has spoken about the upcoming World Cup and the situation with the National Team.
“We hope the group will be an easier one. A World Cup begins from the strongest to weakest and we hope to avoid Spain (in the group stages) because they are a National Team that can be uncomfortable to play against for us and they are one of the candidates.
“If Argentina would not have qualified for the World Cup, many of us on the team would have stepped aside. The National Team would have undergone another cycle with a new generation of players. Although I am not sure about the coaching staff.”
