  1. WC U20 2019 :
    21 players each team
    3 GK
    Players who were born 1 Januari 1999 – 31 Desember 2003 can play for this WC U20 2019

    Now…, lets choose the players for our dream team.🥇🏆🇦🇷

  2. The 11 for WC
    ..Almada/barreal……..La vega

    Subs:-Roffo,Avila,barquett,ayala, maroni, barco, Romero

    • Perfect line up.

      I just think there should be somwhere place for AM Cristian Ferreira from River. Remarkable talent. I would not sacrifice none of Barreal/De La Vega. Maybe in Moreno place. Moreno was growing during the tournament though.

      • To be honest I dont where Ferreira’s playing position is, I read that he is very good in river reserves. Moreno was a surprise to me, he really shined in the final rounds

        @Csabalala So who do you have in mind as no.9? Believe me Romero missed chances too. I have watched almost all matches of COTIF tournament and Colidio missed too many chances there( colidio is very calm and composed when taking penalty I will give him that). Now if you are thinking about Carranza as no.9 sure he has potential but he is not better than the above 3

  3. And Gaich here we go again, with a better centre forward this Copa would have been easily winnable, he started in 6 matches, played in 9 and scored only in 1 match….the most important till WC to find a good centre forward avoid another group stage disaster

    • Csabalala

      you are biggest enemy of yourself. Whatever you say quickly turns on you.

      You are not good even on your stats. According to you that was “must win game for Argentina”?!

      How? They needed just draw to win the tournament, and that draw target attitude since beginnings of the game was our blunder.
      In fact, that was must win game for Brazil. If they have beat us by 3 goals the could got the WC spot. So stop talk bullshit.

    • Who is the better striker than Gaich?
      Colidio? The guy got some minutes yesterday and quickly missed 2 good chances. So was in his previous game. He was missing good oportunities. Gaich did that too. But Gaich is good on every other thing. He is superactive hardworker. With him team plays better. He creates opportunities. He is everywhere on the pitch unlike invisible Romero. And did you even watched the games with Romero. How many good chances he missed too? How many chances missed Maroni, Alvarez. That was our main problem in this tournament after poor selection and still we were so close to win the tournament.

      There’s no better No.9 in this category than Gaich. At least so far.

      He score most goals for us on COTIF tournament and most goals on SUdamericano. Coincidence? He missed many chances but if only will able to improve his finish he will be complete striker. Strong, tall, good pace, good ball control, decent passing, inteligent, very good off ball.

        • You should decide your judge on Lautaro Martinez because you are ambiguous in judging him. Last time, yesterday, I heard from you he will not be good penalty kicker…

          Carranza, Chancalay are good ones but
          I bet Gaich will be our starter during WC if will stay health

    • You should keep silence man. Where you were with your comments when our team won COTIF? Where you were after our wins against Colombia, Venezuela, Uruguay?

      How about De La Vega? He was our best player of the tournament along with Gaich and Roffo. Was not you the one who’ve said before tournament that he should not be there, as well as Barreal, as type of brainless runner without creative abilities?

        • several times, i always alleged him as underperformer in big tournaments, and you protected him, but dunno why? his performance was 10times worse than any of our centre forwards, old, washed up, weak headed, so i think its clear that you never ever want this player in the NT again,when young forwards Piatek and Milik is avalaible, right? maybe they will offer more

          • So bring my comments about him to prove.
            There’s no such defending comments.
            It’s only you, who thinks Lewandowski is “mine” because he is Pole. I never touch the theme of Lewandowski first because I don’t like even the player. He is good nothing more.

  4. We need an european coach to win a Trophy… Enough with local coaches, we suffered a lot in the past cz of poor selection & wrong headed coaches.
    Also we need world class gk & defenders.
    What do u think mates?

  5. this arg u20 is not deserve to be part of wc2019. they r not playing as good as Brazil, Venezuela. by luck they deserved the place.

    • Yes, we deserved the place. Don’t judge them after the game. Brazil was much more motivated. That was must win game for them.

      We were second best of the tournament no doubt. Even with this poor selection and other hard to understand coach decisions.

    • We well deserved under circumstance
      We were .
      We didn’t have manager till December
      I believe Argentina tried to play
      Right way most of the other teams
      They were physically much stronger
      Than us . It’s true Brazil were more
      Motivated than us plus we had our chance
      Last minute header I don’t know about you People but me.
      I’m really exciting what is coming for
      Albicelestes next few years
      A lot of good young players re
      Raising again trust me next generation will win.
      God willing

  6. Thank you, GOD.. It’s a good result for Argentina in this championship.. Hopefully, Argentina will become a champion in WC U20 2019 and Pan American Games 2019.

    Vamos Argentina! Go Tango! Be the champion!

    GOD bless.. Support the NT no matter what….
