Fernando BATISTA has selected his Argentina U20 team for next month’s South American Youth Championship.
The newly appointed coach selected his final list of 23 players. Here is the list:
Pedro DE LA VEGA
Francesco LO CELSO
Was hoping benjamin garre in the lineup
Hope to catch some games. I qm a big fan of Almada and Maxi Romero. Lets see what de la vega can do. Barco, Balerdi, Almendra.
I guess the favourites are uruguay and brazil is same level as Argentina and behind them venezuela
Four CFs is too many. Lack of wingers and defensive midfielders
Julian Alvarez plays rather SS in River, 4 DM/ZM is not enough? Vera, Insaurralde, Santiago Sosa, Almendra…is Moreno an attacking midfielder?
I’m talking about No.5. Only Vera and Insaurralde are type of No.5 Almendra, Moreno are not No.5. Rather box to box. So had played during COTIF as well. Also Sosa from River is more offensive even as volante (read here:https://www.goal.com/es/noticias/quien-es-santiago-sosa-la-nueva-apuesta-de-gallardo-en-river/1y0d1sjfgyw3w1n8oosydy3a1h)
Julian Alvarez is striker. Borre was the SS. Alvarez may play SS but not as winger. I’ve said this team lack of wingers.
Of course in this age every player might be adapted to slightly different position. That’s more doable with these CMs but harder with forwards to make them wingers. 4 strikers is too many. 2-3 optimal.
4 strikers is unnecessary: DM-ZM—Almada/Alvarez-Barco/Moreno-De La Vega/Almada—CF
3 LBs and only 1 RB (Mura)? Barquett and Lautaro Morales CB’s?
If I remember correnctly Barquett may play also RB. Morales is GK. But as you’ve said here is 3 LBs (Pereyra, Ortega, Medina) and again not enough CBs unless Batista will adapt one of the fullbacks to the role.
Anyway it doesn’t looks completely balanced unless Batista have his own idea for switching some players to new positions.
