Gerónimo Rulli of Villarreal set to start for Argentina in World Cup qualifier


Gerónimo Rulli of Villarreal is set to start for Argentina against Ecuador in the World Cup qualifier.

Rulli is expected to get his third start for the Argentina national team. According to Hernán Claus, coach Lionel Scaloni will opt for 29 year old Rulli instead of Juan Musso of Atalanta.

The Argentine has played twice for the national team. The first in a 3-0 win vs. GUatemala where he played the entire match. The second match in a 2-0 win vs. Mexico where he played 59 minutes and was substituted for Paulo Gazzaniga.

As we reported earlier, here is the rumored eleven:

Musso or Rulli; Montiel, Pezzella or Martínez Quarta, Otamendi, Tagliafico; De Paul, Guido, Palacios or Mac Allister; Messi, Julián Álvarez and Nicolás González or Ángel Correa.


  1. Nigeria is out. In late 2017 when Nigeria beat us 2-4, a Nigerian guy came in this forum and trolled Argentina. He stayed in the forum for a few hours and never came back. We had the last laugh coz we beat them in Russia WC. I think that same troll was mocking Ghanaian fans somewhere in the net earlier today, but the joke is on him now 😀

  2. Poland leading 1-0 against Sweden. One country that I hope to be in the same group with Argentina is Poland. I want the world to finally witness how mediocre Lewandowski is.

  3. So 2 of the 50-50 are confirmed: Rulli instead of Musso and LM Quarta instead or Pezzella.

    If Rulli starts. I see Armani as Scaloni’s main back up and Rulli/Musso competing for the third goalie.

  4. Argentina next friendlies:
    1. June 1st vs Italy
    2. Vs Israel (June, time to be confirmed)
    3. Vs Australia (June, to be confirmed)
    4. Brazil (June or September)
    5. Mexico (September)

    No Europeans yet other than Italy and Israel so far.

  5. I rate juan foyth as good center back. It won’t be bad idea to start him as cb tonight cuz Ecuador are very fast.
    I know he had some blunders before but who doesn’t likes Sergio Ramos, John stones, even otamendi to extend made bigger mistakes than him. Remember before C. Romero came to the scene foyth was supposed to be next big cb for arg nt yrs to come. One thing for sure foyth is beast in 1v1 situations plus he looks more mature now under Emery.
    Uai Emery counts foyth the big matches that say a lot about him .

    • I don’t think none of the above mentioned center backs made blunders as frequently as Foyth. Does Emery play him in CB in a four-man back line, which is how Argentina plays? Had we played back three, I wouldn’t have mind to give Foyth more chances on the right side to see if he actually has matured.

  6. Guys don’t need to open any account. Just go to totalsportek website and every Argentina( or any team) game will be there. There will be like 30 links to watch and only go from recommended one in the top. Twitter is not good cause it always get blocked in the middle and stream suddenly off. Same goes for all social media apps.

  7. Happy Eliminatorias day, MA Fam!!
    Guys- any legit links that anyone can possibly share would be greatly appreciated.
    Futbolibre seems to have too much traffic now, very difficult to stream the game on there..

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    Vamos Argentina CARAJO!!!

      exactly how it’s spelled there. They post links to matches on the story and if a link glitches they then post other backup links. It works on mobile but I doubt it does on computers. I connect it to my TV with HDMI. You can test it out right now with the Egypt Senegal game or the later European matches

        • Hello, its not the posts on the bottom but its on the profile picture of the account I mentioned. Click on the profile picture and then you can tap through different “stories” and find the one with the Argentina game. Not sure when it will appear but soon for sure
