Where are those who has been critic
To gio lo celso.
Again he was the only bright spot spurs had
Tonight. if he was Brazilian some
Will claim we need this kind midfielder
Thanks god he is Argentine.
Pick up one more time gio real baller lo celso.
For sure….Lo Celso was awesome. Needs to work on his corners though.
Lamela replacing Delli was also significant. I love the grit and energy he ads to the midfield. i actually really liked Lamela and Lo Celso playing together, they should start more often. Lloris was also great.
Scaloni should and must call Lamela for RM back up and Papu Gomez for LW position. We lack good players at LW while we have a fantastic player-Alejandro Gomez
Pablo Zabaleta getting a standing ovation from the ManCity crowd
Lo Celso starting for Tottenham against Leipzig in CL. Lamela and Gazzaniga on the bench. Lo Celso is being played as RW in a 4-2-3-1 formation
Argentina produce more talent in attack/forwards where Brazil produce more talent in defense #fact
Haaland is away more talented than anyone else, only 19 and sure he will rule in Europe just like Cristiano did.
Reports from Argentina say that Wanda is leaving Icardi for Halaand. Lol
Next week from romance “Haaland is the worlds best striker”
I love Wanda
This Dortmund-PSG was a very good tactical example. 343 is definitely a very complex formation for any team usually play with 4 men defense. When a coach like Tuchel doesn’t understand that and we see how it was easy for a team like PSG to turn to be very vulnerable in defense and in attack. Just like what Sampaoli did in the past with Argentina against Croatia.
Tuchel panicks and try to overdo and losses.
AFA should convince Giovanni Reyna of Dortmund. What an attacking prospect. Playing in top level with super quality. We actually don’t have such talent of that age. We may argue a lot but truth is Haaland, Sancho, Reyna, Mbappe are young and superstars. Reyna is only 17, playing in UCL knock out match and performing.
It would indeed be a shame to lose him to England/Portugal/USA only to see him turn in to a phenomenal player. Problem is that CAM/Wing spot is heavily contested… Will be interesting to see what happens
very low probability. less than 1%. he’s born in england, his father born in usa and possibly greatest US player ever, his mother is US, the family moved out of argentina more than 50 years ago. this is just a dream for AFA.
as mongol said due to the family lineage he is highly unlikely to join argentina besides no one wud ditch the quality living of america n europe also he wud earn higher wages there. and the US NT have a talented group of players coming up with pulisic n sergino dest leading the way
An Argentina shirt has a more value than the entire USA football. If he is invited to the team properly I don’t think he will have any reason to refuse that offer. I have more faith on Reyna than AFA in regard to playing for us.
He must choose USA because his father played for them, If he choose Argentina then surely to win the World Cup. Messi rejected Spain for Argentina otherwise 2 World Cup and 3 Euros in his kitty.
This season La liga mid table and low table teams are playing very good so that is why La liga’s champion league teams are playing so good in champion league because they were forced to raise their level by those underdog teams of La liga.Barcelona Atletico and Valancia will surely shine
Velez lost to Aucas in Copa Sudamericana 1:2. The goal of Almada.
But they go through to next stage
i hope almada can repilcate the heroics barco did for independente
damn haaland’s potential is immense i fear he might be more talented n productive than el toro
He is actually
I said some months ago he is Gaich on very hard steroids…
Impressive this guy, so fast and powerful, everything looks easy with him
Haaland isn’t 22 yet
And the guy is faster than everyone in our national team. PSG had a corner and Dortmund counter attack. Haaland started on his own goal line and was in 10,4 seconds in the opposite penalty area. Except for Ronaldo and Caniggia I haven’t seen that speed on a football pitch.
anyone noticed liverpool vs atletico there were 5 brazilians on the pitch fabinho,alisson,firmino,renan lodi n almeida all of their positions different compared to one argentine attacker correa
That Lodi guy is complete full back and he is just 21.
We need Lodi kind of fullbacks
If any team can knock Klopp’s Liverpool out, it is the giant killer Athletico!
Credit to El Cholo Simeone for being bad all season but stepping up when things matters. The best Liverpool in decades facing the worst Atletico in years. Knows how to handle Reds with his parking bus.
Unfortunately, this mark that Simeone is not the right candidate for Albiceleste manager ! Not suitable for Tango style play
Rumor that Paredes and Tuchel disputed so Paredes didn’t even make todays bench. Dude needs to gtfo.
Being rested due to his poor form
Verratti of PSG will miss the second CL match against Dortmund. Time to shine Leandro Paredes!
It’s telling that he didn’t even make todays bench. He probably ain’t gonna shine there any time soon.
He was not a part of the game today because he was injured from the game against Amiens. He will be fit for the next one in 3 weeks
not injured per say, but he did have some pain in his thigh, so Tuchel opted not to bring him.
Tuchel will play rather with Marquinhos Gueye duo in midfield, mark my words, nobody faith in argentine midfielders on the highest level.
La liga 4th rank vs premiere league 1st rank
Ligue one first rank vs 3rd rank Bundesliga
Dybla is also a good free kick taker.So Dybla should take all close range or short range free kick while Messi should take all long range and medium range free kick.Argentina has all in their team.There are best free kick or dead ball taker.Pezella, Otamendiand Aguero are great in header.So Argentina also have skilled player other than open play.They just need to convert their chances.
What do you people think?
is there any chance of Simeone’s atletico against mighty Liverpool?
There is always chance for Cholo’s team
But I think players get tired of his high
Demanding intensity defending.
However liverpool are overwhelming
Favourite this match but never rule out
Cholo simeone team.
Yes if somehow Simeone is able to turn his team to old version of Simeone’s atletico then may be a surprise waiting for.
Not rite now when Simeone is going through his lowest phase as Atletico coach even though I would love an upset. I hate Liverpool but I still say this team under Klopp is one mean machine. Best in the Last 3 decades.
there is always chance. i believe on Simeone.
in same time i believe Spanish team can look in eyes the English team.
sure Atletico is not favorite team to qualify but it will not be easy for the English.
On paper PSG looks very strong team but i do not like their 4 2 2 2 formation.It is impossible for Paredes to replace Verrati there.4 2 2 2 formation is preety predictable for opposition teams.
My current 23 squad for Copa America
GK: Andrada, Benitez, Romero
RB: Montiel, C Romero (?)
LB: Tagliafico, Acuña
CB: Pezzella, Quarta, Licha Martinez, C Romero
DM: Paredes, Ascacibar, Licha
CM: Palacios, De Paul, Lo Celso, Dominguez
RM, RWF: Ocampos, Buendia, Messi
LM, LWF: De Paul, Ocampos, Buendia, Acuña
CF, SS: Messi, Lautaro, Dybala, Aguero, Alario
I haven’t seen C Romero play as RB, but Transfermarkt says it’s his secondary position and I can imagine him being decent as a backup there, since Foyth and Saravia aren’t playing anymore..
Pezzella, Dominguez and Alario could be changed but the rest should unquestionably be part of the 23 for Copa
nice lineup u cud add otamendi maybe since he is getting game time n also the u23 kids nehuen, medina n valenti. for right back its montiel or if not him we shud look into the superliga talent pool surely there must be bright talented right backs
Paredes isn’t selected for Dortmund game in the 21 man squad for psg.
jeez his career is turning from a fairy tale to a disaster he shud have stayed at roma
He didnt leave voluntarily. i may be wrong but Roma needed to sell at the time to free up wages.
Leo parades is injured that is why
He had to came out around 60 minutes Saturday game.
But still need to leave psg
roma finisht 2nd place tat season so i dont tnk wages were an issue n also it was his breakthrough season so i dont tnk he had a huge wage bill no argentines are paid a lot at first unless they have excelled like lo celso ,messi .,etc
maybe paying debts were a reason but still paredes had a choice to decline n join elsewhere where he cud earn regular play time in a competitive environment i tnk juve were interested tat time
Don’t forget Balerdi on Dortmund
as if u tnk he will play
He is still on the team. When did I mention that he will play?
Interesting assumption on your end.
just saying either way it dosnt make sense adding him to the list lol cool man
marcos rojo utter shambolic defending against defensa y justicia. scaloni musnt even refer his name one bit it wud be another disaster fr argentina
