Diego Maradona appearing to go with 3 strikers for Argentina
Maradona is widely expected to start the following team: Sergio Romero in goal behind defenders Gabriel Heinze, Martin Demichelis and Walter Samuel.The shame about this formation is that it is tailor-made for Cambiasso to play in the role that has been assigned to Jonas - a wide player being shoehorned into a holding role. Wouldn't Cambiasso/Mascherano (or even Zanetti)/Veron make SO MUCH MORE SENSE?
The midfield will be Jonas Gutierrez, Angel Di Maria, Mascherano and Juan Sebastian Veron. They will be joined by the three strikers [Carlos Tevez, Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain].
I guess the thinking is that Jonas can cover more ground, being a more athletic player. But why start over-thinking things with this much talent? Put the extremely capable (Champions League winner here, people!) round peg in the round hole.
Gah! It boggles the mind.
