  1. I would like Mascherano to be in the mindset of kingmaker and a craftsman helping create the next Arg. Masterpiece like Messi or Diego M. He should work closely with senior team coach to mould youngsters in the same NT philosophy so they can slide into the first team and integrate quickly… he has a huge responsibility of developing the next Argentine messiah…

  2. I see Mashcherano is very busy leading to the Youth WC tournament. I wouldnt be surprised if he creates a champion’s team by that time.

  3. So the big three: Luka Romero, Soule, and Garnacho skipped this tournament. It is quite fair I think since they have yet to get a rest and in a couple weeks, the European futbol already entering the pre season.
