Lautaro MARTINEZ could be called for March friendlies

Lautaro Martinez Argentina

Lautaro MARTINEZ could be called-up for the friendly matches in March.

With Claudio TAPIA confirming that the Argentina National Team would be playing two friendly matches against Italy and Spain in March, rumors have already surfaced about who might receive a call-up.

Racing Club’s Lautaro MARTINEZ is the name being mentioned in the press. With the first match confirmed to take place in Switzerland, the second match against Spain will be played at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid (Atletic’s stadium).

This would be MARTINEZ’s first call-up to the senior team having represented his country at the U20 FIFA World Cup last year. MARTINEZ has been linked with a move to Europe but a few days ago he announced to the press that he would be staying at Racing for a little longer:

Lautaro MARTINEZ on his future at Racing:

“I’ll stay here until June, after that, we’ll see.”

Both Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are interested in signing him.

    Watched Nantes-PSG, Real Sociedad and Alaves-Sevilla. Very poor games, obviously for watching our players.

    Mercado: decent game, he did his job.

    Banega: he started the game in a much more advanced position than usual, like a playmaker. He seems a little lost in the first 30 minutes and gradually getting better. He’s definitely better in a deeper position under less pressure.

    Pizarro: A bit disappointed by his performance, he didn’t make the difference in the midfield battle.

    Lo Celso: PSG wanted to buy a holding midfielder during this winter but cannot due to the financial fair-play. Lo Celso took his chance and he has been doing well in his new role during the past few games. Last night he was good in the 1st half, but he looks tired in the 2nd half which had a direct impact on his team. Was Nantes too intensive for him? Maybe, Nantes is trained by Ranieri. From what I saw last night, he needs more playing time to be more regular. Still a lot to improve.

    Di Maria: The only attacking player dangerous, Cavani and Mbappe were transparent last night. Other than his goal, he missed 2 big opportunities. Otherwise his team would have killed the match.

    Sala: hard for him. Impossible to do anything if your entire team stays behind.

    Rulli: above average but not great enough. I didn’t see any interesting safe, against a team like Barca, you’d better to be at 100% of your full potential.

    Messi: Suarez’s first goal is a very classic one with Messi, who likes to dribble in the middle and attracts 2-3 defenders, then he send the ball either to the left winger or to the right one for the finish.

    1. fanOFargentina

      Rulli was a joke

    2. Mik

      I Think Banega-Biglia-Enzo Combo may work for us. Remember Banega performed greatly in Copa 2016 along with Augusto-Masch combo. One of his best performances for us was at Copa 2016 if i m not wrong. There is a True number 5 Biglia, A Box to Box player Enzo, And a Deep lying play maker Banega in a 3-3-3-1 formation,Just an opinion.

  11. Maxilopez830

    I said that and I am gonna repeat it, our coaching staff is making a very big mistake by keeping trying new players. It’s the time for consolidating the ideas not to try news ones. Martinez will not even a 3rd choice so why wasting time while we could’ve experimented messi-dybala combo or aguero-higuain combo. If Sampaoli calls new players and tries them in friendlies I won’t have any trust in him anymore, he would prove that he is overrated.

    1. KidultHood

      I think Smapaoli is aldo looking ahead to the 2022 world cup in terms of the young new players. He is setting the table for the transition after the 2018 world cup when majority of the current roster will hang up their boost irrespective of the outcome at the 2018 world cup. Only one young player right now I see making it to the world cup and that is Lo Celso. There are so many people ahead of Lanzini, he has no chance. Sampaoli already told Lanzini he is for future plan post 2018 world cup.

      1. Mik

        Well as you said above Realistically speaking i don’t see so many new names added to our Line up with only 2 Matches left before selecting the WC 23. But with Sampaoli you never now. He is a hothead guy. Rather Unpredictable.

      2. Dadir10

        “Only one young player right now I see making it to the world cup and that is Lo Celso”

        Wooow just woow! And now you have turned your attention to Lo Celso?

        Guys, wait for two months or so and you will hear something different than this from Mr.Inconsistent KidultHood.

        I really like Lo Celso, but Lanzini and Pavon are the ones who have more chance than him at the moment.

        Lanzini could’ve easily been part of the of the squads for the last two qualifiers and friendlies but he was injured at that time and wasn’t fit for selection. And the Boca star, Pavon, has already cemented his place in the squad travelling to Russia.

        “There are so many people ahead of Lanzini”….like who? Is Banega one of those? Lol

        1. imtiaz

          @dadir10,
          I m not sure about Lanzini either. I have read some good reaction to Lanzini from English pundits over the years & I know WestHam are having a bad season, but for me, Lanzini never looked like a player who could boss Argentine midfield. IMO he is an average to good category player who might have a peak season ahead.we r overhyping him a bit. Banega on the otherhand is a player with great quality, but Banega only plays for a 15-20minute spell.then he completely disappears.Banega has helped us with nothing over the years & someone new should get a chance this time. But I still think Banega will make the final squad.

          1. Dadir10

            “Banega has helped us with nothing over the years & someone new should get a chance this time”

            @Imtiaz, I completely agree with you on the point you made on Banega. The new face that needs to get the chance is Lanzini.

            “No other player reminds me of Luka Modric as much as West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini”- Slaven Bilic. This is a coach who knows the potential of the player he is talking about.

          2. imtiaz

            @Dadir10,
            As I have said, I have heard a lot of good reviews on Lanzini from English pundits & I respect their opinion.
            I have been watching EPL since Tevez joined City.Tottenham was City’s main rival for UCL spot back then.So trust me, I watched Modric a lot & I always feared to face him.He was even better at Tottenham than he is at Real. Lanzini is nowhere near that level. Lanzini isn’t even close to Tottenham’s another top but underrated player Christian Ericksen.

      3. Gonzalo.

        “There are so many people ahead of Lanzini, he has no chance” – well, ‘Roma locuta, causa finita’. We will see.

    2. imtiaz

      I think Sampaoli is looking for an alternative to Aguero. I m a huge fan of Aguero but he has a record of getting injured during tournaments. He isn’t exactly consistent for longer period either. If Icardi/Aguero is selected as no.9/ false 9 role, we need a replacement for Aguero.

      1. Dadir10

        Imtiaz, I respect your opinion a lot but I think you don’t constantly follow West Ham’s games week in week out.

        If you watch West Ham regularly you would know how fast Lanzini is progressing although his team is going through difficult times. He is the one carrying the team on his shoulders more than any other West Ham player.

        Lanzini directly involved in 11,(7 assists and 4 goals), goals this season and no other West Ham player did that.

  13. guled

    It will be Lo celso not lanzini who will start in midfield for argentina & he is playing regularly for psg now.

  14. Dfox1942

    Rulli learned first hand what Messi has been doing for YEARS……what a goal!

    1. Csabalala

      That Sociedad defense, pathetic…poor Rulli, i hope he will go to Napoli

      1. fanOFargentina

        3rd goal was another poor error by rulli..He is error prone ..He shouldn’t be selected

  15. imtiaz

    Why is my last comment being subjected to moderation while this russian guy is allowed to keep posting gibberish in russian language?

    Ever Banega is One of the 10 Best Passers In Europe, Xavi Praises his guy again, Why the Hell is he not performing well with the NT its an enigma. But sadly and painfully have to see this guy getting sidelined. Because he is not performing like we all wanted. Have lost the trust in him. ENZO is more disciplined so is AUGUSTO. Bilgia well does what he is asked to do very well He is the Number 5 for us, true Defensive Midfielder a player with heart. ENZO – BIGLIA Combo at least offers defensive stability.

    1. Dadir10

      Xavi is a great player and he can praise whoever he likes but that doesn’t necessarily mean the player he likes would get an international recognition in football circles.

      Roberto Baggio likes and thinks that Ricardo Centurion is his heir. Since Baggio likes Centurion, could we say we need that guy in the NT ASAP? The simple answer is NO!

      Argentina has midfielders who are better than Banega and the first one who comes to mind whenever this discussion is started is Manuel Lanzini.

      The current season Banega has assisted 5 goals and scored 6 in 31 games, while Lanzini has scored four times and assisted seven times in 20 games.

      Keep in mind that West Ham is in trouble this season and doesn’t have a strong team like the one Sevilla has. What do you think if Lanzini joins a big team like Liverpool? His place in the NT will be untouchable.

      1. Csabalala

        He would be a benchwarmer in Pool,plus the Pool want a lot of players (Draxler etc) more, than him.

        1. Dadir10

          Draxler who? Isn’t he the German guy who is the benchwarmer at PSG?

          PSG are ready to sell him but unfortunately the only team that showed real interest in him is Arsenal and they don”t want to buy that guy for more than $30m.

          Lanzini will do real magic if he joins a big club in this transfer window or the one in the summer. Stats talk for him and no one would doubt in his ability.

      2. KidultHood

        You always comment here with a bunch of uninformative comments. Banega is not going anywhere, get that through your head man! And no matter how many times you spew irrelevant comments here on Mundo about Banega, it still doesn’t affect his spot on the Argentina national team. As my man Mik said above, Banega is one of the best passer in European football this season. Other than Di Maria and Otamendi, Banega have had the most appearance under Sampoali tenure as coach. All these nonsensical makeshift Argentina NT lineups with players who have little to no international caps and experience on football biggest stage doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. No coach for Argentina is going to select 5-6 players to start at the FIFA MEN’S WORLD CUP with less than 15 cap between themselves and zero international goals or assist.

        And it’s not only Xavi who show admiration for Banega as a player, if you watch Sevilla games, you will hear all the Spanish and English commentators (who are all former players) saying the same thing as Xavi with regards to Banega. Banega start almost every game at Sevilla, and for some reason he shouldn’t be on the national team? Banega is one of the best midfielder in La Liga and he is not supposed to be on the national team? What gives here man? The talk around here is that you need to be playing for your club in order to be selected for Argentina, now why is the standard different for Banega who is actively playing well in La Liga, the UCL, and The Kings Cup in Spain?

        Dude just shut up if you don’t have any relevant input when it comes to football. It’s also silly to make comparisons between Banega (a two time Europa League winner) and Centurion. Banega have European club and international football experience, and he’s not supposed to be on the Argentina national team? SMH

        Keep the PlayStation lineups and the stupidity talk to yourself. Xavi have spoken over and over again for his admiration of Banega. Sampaoli like Banega which makes your opinion irrelevant. NO PLAYER IN ARGENTINA OTHER THAN MESSI IS AS GOOD ON THE BALL AS BANEGA, this is a FACT!! Lanzini will never play for Liverpool or any big club for that matter. Lanzini is average for Liverpool standards. How many European games have Lanzini ever performed in? Nobody cares about Lanzini performance against relegated threaten Huddersfield in the EPL. Banega have already feature against Brazil, Singapore, Venezuela, Peru, Russia and Nigeria. The reason Banega didn’t start against Uruguay was because of yellow card suspension, and the reason he didn’t feature against Ecuador either was because of disciplinary reason for partying with his wife after the Peru WCQ game. So out of Sampaoli eight games Banega have played in six of them. How many games have Lanzini feature in since Sampaoli took over? None of what you say on here is based on reality. I’m a realist, and some of the players being mention here are in no way going to the 2018 world cup.

        1. Dadir10

          Mr.Inconsistent KidultHood, do you know that you and Banega have the inconsistency attribute in common? Lol

          Oh, sorry! I didn’t want to say sh*t about the king of all Argentine midfield players (Banega).

          A few months ago you were praising Lanzini but unfortunately you quoted “Lanzini? the guy who scores once in a blue moon?” from a British fan who knows nothing about football.

          You really are inconsistent in every sense of the word.

          I really missed your very, very long comments that you used to explain in them how Banega has become a better player than Requelme, Redondo, and all Argentine midfielders. If you have one of those pls post it I want to read it and enjoy. 😀

      3. Mik

        Well I already have the Answer there in the post itself.

        “But sadly and painfully have to see this guy getting sidelined. Because he is not performing like we all wanted”

        Everybody is destined to have their own Opinions, Like Cr7 Said he is the best player, We cant take opinions seriously. I know, But XAVI is a Master of Midfield, He wont praise anyone vaguely i guess. Out of all Argentine Midfielders he only said Banegas name,May be everybody have certain preferences, But fact is Banega One of the 10 Best Passers In Europe as per statistics. Even then that alone don’t make him a great player for our NT, He is rather inconsistent while playing for us, But would have loved to see him play well for us.

        According to me Banega is the best Midfielder we have right now,But its just my opinion only. Had he replicated his club form for our NT, we would have way less Headache in the Midfield position.As i said above because of his inconsistency have lost the trust in him. And about Lanzini, I cant say anything regarding him until he plays for our NT, Its not easy to play along side Messi, Is there time for new midfielder to be inserted, I don’t know. We will get a better idea after March friendlies till then there is hope for all, Because Sampa is monitoring nearly 60 Players as he said. So everybody has chance.

        I would like to see more of Belluschi though and Nacho too in our Midfield

    2. imtiaz

      Xavi praised Jean Michael Seri last summer and publicly asked Barca board to buy him. I watched him vs Napoli in UCL playoff. He was pretty bad.Barca considered meeting his buyout clause but the coach opted for Paulinho.
      Xavi recently said Kevin De Bruyne has Barca DNA.I first noticed De Bruyne in WC quarter final against us when he came in the 2nd half and immediately improved Belgium. I have been following him since.Never heard any praise from Xavi until Guardiola’s City started setting records. I think Xavi “assumes” a lot and rather go with the flow. My point is don’t take Xavi’s comments seriously!

  17. Mik

    Who will be the Jordi Alba or Dany Alves for our NT in WC, Thats gonna be the key for Messi’s Success. DI MARIA and ACUNA are almost locked to do the Role of Alba, And i think PAVON and SALVIO are the ones who are locked the Role of Alves(Which he used to do with Messi). The Wingers are going to be so important for us in the WC.

    DIMARIA-MESSI-AGUERO combo has to click this time for the last time. They go way long back playing together. So they must convert. I m not sure about the Midfield combo of BIGLIA-ENZO by the way. Defense is gonna be MERCADO-OTA-ROJO i think.

    Will Augusto Fernandez make. A Great addition if he makes it to the WC a solid player like Enzo. AUGUSTO-ENZO combo how it will be ??? No creativity but 2 tireless Warriors in middle.

    Its almost sure Sampa will go for 3 at back. He is confident in that ideology so it is what it is.Lets hope for the best.

    1. canadien royal

      On the right, I agree with you, should be pretty safe for Salvio and Pavon.

      However, on the left, very tough. 2 places for Di Maria, Acuna, Papu Gomez and Perotti. Very closed their level. Papu has been exceptional for a couple of years in Calcio. Maybe the best in term of dribbling and pace. Perotti is essential in his club, very creative player. Acuna did great job in the last few games of qualification and he has the highest workrates comparing to the other 3. Di Maria is the most experienced, his long passing and his corner kick is the best.

      1. Mik

        Realistically speaking DI MARIA will be there at the WC if there is no injuries for him, Whatever Form he is in dosen’t matter because he is DI MARIA, All the Coaches sees something in him with all his inconsistency too.

        ACUNA started playing as a Left Back so thats an added advantage because Sampa most probably will play 3-4-3. DIMARIA & ACUNA at left will offer Defensive stability both covers so much ground too. Either one of them has to play the role of Alba.

        PEROTTI well is added to the setup way too lately he should have already played so many matches for us, A player who can play in both wings & comfortable in both Feet would have been way useful always.

        GOMEZ i think is a Character like LAVEZZI was, He will be selected most probably because every team needs one Funny Character too, Very good player too. Also he can play as a Second striker & as an Attacking Midfielder too i guess..

        1. canadien royal

          I agree that in any case, Di Maria and Acuna should be the 1st choice.

          After Sampaoli may eventually choose an additional left winger and sacrifice one of the midfielders because he may need to switch from 3-3-3-1 to 3-4-2-1 or the other way during the game. This gives him more option.

          To me, if the team plays in 3-4-2-1, then the 2 wingers got to do defensive work as well, the pair Acuna-Salvio seems to be the most obvious solution. Both of them can defend, dribble and score.

          If Sampaoli choose to switch to 3-3-3-1, the 2 wingers can have more freedom and play in a more advanced position. Then I may go for Papu Gomez/Di Maria and Pavon, they are more creative players.

          1. Mik

            I think 3-3-3-1 is a better formation but in that case we may need an important Midfield player who should be creative too apart from ENZO & BIGLIA, That 1 player i think Sampa still haven’t found yet, Banega? Lo Celso? Paredes? Lanzini? Really don’t know who will be gud for us.

            If its 3-4-3 then its rather sure ACUNA-BIGLIA-ENZO-SALVIO but the wingers has to do the Defending & do the creative work because apart from Messi & Di maria there is no other creative player when its 3-4-3

      I like it. Bustos, Lanzini and Battaglia are must as for me.

    2. canadien royal

      Quite smart, you put an additional defensive player like Bustos to keep the midfield balanced. There are almost 8 players in the midfield which allows to defend high and ensure the ball possession style. I said 8 because Otamendi always stays high when the team attacking, Messi and Aguero usually drop deeper and play as playmaker from time to time. The other midfielders like Acuna, Battaliga, Bustos and Lo Celso are very high workrates players.

    2. canadien royal

      Your 4-1-4-1 looks good and it is actually quite balanced. But it’s hard to get the best of Messi with that because Messi is not a winger anymore for long time and he needs an attacking fullback or winger playing next to him in order to cover him so that he can have the freedom to cut inside. Mercado is more a RCB.

      Without many changes, to keep your 4-1-4-1, I will use Messi as false 9 instead of Icardi and use either Pavon or Salvio on the right. On the left, I like Perotti but I prefer Papu Gomez.

  21. Arjunanmessi

    somebody have doubt about lanzini… here but i dont considder where he plays.. in psg you can have 85 to 95 % pass sucees rate… in lower team like west ham… it is very dificult to have high percentage pass rate… he has 85%.. and he never loose easily like banega( he have great ball control some time loose the ball in danger area… xavi never loose ball in dificult area.. lo celso and lanzini can help defensively… compare to pastore and banega… and they are young … i hope we can have both of them in the midfield… like silva debrune for city.. we can have lo celso and lanzini

    1. chalz

      👍👍

    2. canadien royal

      I don’t think many people here doubt about Lanzini’s qualities. The problem is not really him because his selection really depends on which system that Sampaoli will finally use. It’s quite hard to have both of them in the starting XI:

      – in 3-4-2-1: most likely Sampaoli will use a defensive midfielder + Enzo Perez in front of the defense and then Messi + 1 attacking midifielder like Lanzini or Di Maria. But we saw that during the last 3 qualification matches that they struggled with that. That’s why Sampaoli tried 3-3-3-1 in the last 2 friendlies.

      – in 3-3-3-1: Sampaoli can go for either 1 DM + 1 box to box + 1 holding or 2 box to box and 1 holding in front of the defense. Lo Celso can be 1 of them, but behind the forward, there will Messi + 2 wingers. The only way to get Lanzini inside this system is to use Messi as false 9 and Lanzini will then play his usual role. But in this case you sacrifice Aguero or Icardi.

      I understand the fans frustrations on Lanzini because he’s been doing really great in PL and it’s a waste not to use him.

  22. vimaldass

    Lanzini with 2 good goals for west ham. Going for his hattrick now

  23. kavindrs

    Sampoli will play 3-4-3 and it will turn into 3-2-2-3 with Biglia holding midfielder and Enzo Perej as box to box and other two will go for attack may be lo celso and Lanzini/banega.Lanzini is premier league player so he is physical and fast.Sampoli wants to play in opposition’s half.

  24. Rhaelyn

    Apparently Pastore is not moving away from Paris.

    1. anuparno

      Pastore will not be selected for Russia at least he will not play any match there

  25. anuparno

    Play lanzini lo celso for god sake the two most talented midfielders around though I have some doubts about lanzini but Mundo members like him a lot that indicates he is talented

    1. mamoun elpipita

      The one you should have doubts about is Lo Celso not Lanzini. Celso is undoubtedly talented but he’s still way too raw as evidenced by his Argentina matches, so he needs to prove himself in paris and get regular playing time and maybe by the time the WC rolls around he’ll be ready.

      1. anuparno

        But I don’t have doubts regarding lo celso he is playing superbly recently for psg and in Nigeria friendly he was good in 1st half but lanzini playing for west ham and for quite some time and no big teams interested in him makes me think plus west ham mayb rarely make creative chances that’s also worrying if he can’t inspire west ham to decent position in premier league how he can change our midfield problems and make Argentina midfield compete with midfield of Croatia midfield Spain Germany Brazil etc?? That’s my doubt

        1. mamoun elpipita

          Celso played well in the last PSG games but remember that Celso is playing with one of the strongest teams in europe against lowly ligue 1 teams while Lanzini is playing with a lower team against often better opponents, the comparison isn’t fair.
          And how do you know that big teams aren’t interested, Liverpool is apparently showing alot of interest.
          For me atleast Lo celso is still raw and he’s already gotten a couple of chances while Lanzini is yet to get a real chance by Sampaoli (singapoure doesn’t really count) even though lanzini should be ahead of Celso is the pecking order.

          1. anuparno

            According to you he can change our midfield??? I love to see him play in march friendlies then I can judge him how is lamela according to you?? We need 4-5 good defenders to compete in Russia

          2. Som's Palchow

            @mamoun … agree with you Lanzini is better than Lo Celso as he is playing in EPL one of the strong and challenging League in football and good news is he is consistent performer for last 2 or 3 seasons [The famous goal against Tottenham], Even Liverpool thought him as a replacement of Coutinho. Lo Celso is good but not much experienced in tough situation. I would prefer Lanzini over Lo Celso .. Celso is future he also knows that… like so many other talented players

          3. mamoun elpipita

            No one player can change a midfield, what is required for a midfield to function is for all the pieces to fit together.
            Lanzini is just one of the pieces, he’s very versatile and he can play midfield but he’s best when he’s up the field in the 10 role IMO.
            I would try lanzini in the following ways:

            1. as part of a high 4 man midfield behind a central striker

            —-Mammana——-Fazio———–Otam———Tagliafico

            ———————Battaglia/enzo——————–

            —-Cartabia——Nacho———–Lanzini——Acuna—–

            ————————Messi—————————-

            2. right behind a pair of strikers in a 4-3-1-2 formation

            —-Mammana——-Fazio———–Otam———Tagliafico

            ———————-Battaglia/enzo———————

            —————- Nacho———–Paredes—————–

            ————————lanzini————————–

            —————–Lio————-Icardi/dybala———–

            As for Lamela, well coco has always been a talent and he’s hardworking to boot but he’s still getting back into the swing of things so lets just wait and see.

          4. Csabalala

            Battaglia-Nacho-Lanzini-Cartabia-Acuna midfield? Wow crazy lineup, be a little bit more serious, just 2 of them played Champions League football (with not much success)and none of them in CL last stages, this group have combined 5-6 NT games? A high chance there Cartabia will never an NT player, Nacho no more, Battaglia? None of us know, maybe one day, maybe. Lanzini? Perhaps after the WC. Acuna? Not a starting lineups materia. Cmon we want to win the damn WC right?

          5. Csabalala

            Or if this is just your team after the WC for the next 4 years era, then OK, but imo very few questions left in Sampaolis mind: GKs-Romero, Guzman, Rulli or Marchesin, CBs-Mascherano, Mercado, Otamendi, Fazio, Rojo, Funes Mori or Tagliafico or Mammana, DM’s Biglia, Kranevitter or Pizarro, ZMs-AMs Enzo, Banega, Lo Celso, Paredes or Lanzini or Pastore, wingers Di Maria, Salvio, Acuna, Pavon, SS Messi, Dybala CF Aguero, Icardi, (Higuain or Lautaro Martinez, in this case minus one man from somewhere else)

          6. mamoun elpipita

            [Wow crazy lineup, be a little bit more serious, just 2 of them played Champions League football (with not much success)and none of them in CL last stages, this group have combined 5-6 NT games?]

            I’m totally serious a 4-1-4-1 formation is a quite tricky but with a skilled, disciplined, energetic squad it could work wonderfully and no matter what, anything is better than a 3 man backline that has an over the hill mascherano anchoring it, which is sadly what sampaoli is doing right now.
            If merely playing in the CL was a guarantee for WC success then Spain would’ve made it to the WC final in 2014 easily instead of embarrassingly being knocked out of the group stage. Also look at Argentina in 2014, how many of them were in the CL knockout stages? 5 to be exact (messi, kun, maria, masch and zaba) with Kun and maria getting injured BECAUSE OF being overworked with league and CL duties.

            [A high chance there Cartabia will never an NT player, Nacho no more, Battaglia? None of us know, maybe one day, maybe. Lanzini? Perhaps after the WC. Acuna? Not a starting lineups materia. Cmon we want to win the damn WC right?]

            See this the problem with today’s football fans, alot of em don’t even bother to watch actual games, they simply pass judgement on a player based on whether said player plays regularly in a big team.
            I put Cartabia there because he is ideal for the 4-1-4-1 system that I suggested. If you follow the guy you’d know that he’s skilled going forward and is diligent in defense. Is is a world beater? I don’t think so but he is the right player for the above system.
            Same goes for Nacho, not a world beater but the right player for a system that requires the player to play attacking and central midfield simultaneously.
            Regarding Acuna, you say he’s not NT material, really? where the heck were u in the venezuela game when he created the equalizer out of nothing? where were you in the peru game when he was one of the most creative players on the field? where were you when he played a very effective full back against Ecuador? or is just because he’s not playing for Real or Barca or Bayren then he should be discarded?

            In your list I see you have Biglia, who hasn’t had a genuinely good match for the NT since the WC 4 years ago. You have Banega who hasn’t had a consistent run of good games since copa cent in 2016. You have Celso who was average at best in the friendlies and isn’t even a starter for his own club. You have Lautaro Martinez who hasn’t even had a good full season in Argentina for god’s sake and don’t even get me started on Pastore who is by now almost as injury prone as Gago.

            I will say this again, give a player a chance before you pass judgement on them regardless of what team they play on, otherwise you end up like kidulthood who says the primera is s**t even though he probably wouldn’t be able to tell whether san lorenzo is an argentine club or a brazilian one.

          7. Gonzalo.

            Battaglia is best No.5 we have. Actually someone more than just No.5 as he is able to play as energetic box-to-box. That will be big blunder from Sampaoli if he won’t take him for WC. Nacho IMO should be in NT but I start to doubt he will do anymore. Sampaoli is inconsistent – as he didn’t called him up again after good game against Hong-Kong. Nacho has fantastic instinct to attack, always play forward, as like just few others.

            Mamoun, I just prefer Bustos on RB over any other of our players on the position.

          8. mamoun elpipita

            @Gonzalo yeah Bustos is good but Mammana offers something that few other players do as he can play CB and RB, he has experience playing in Russia and he’s fast and he fits the 3 man backline that Sampaoli is obsessed with.

    2. canadien royal

      I am quite a big fan of both. But I think Lo Celso will have a better chance than Lanzini because:

      – Lanzini is a playmaker like Pastore, so if Argentina plays in 3-3-3-1 then it means that there is no such a role for them. In the central of 3, Sampaoli prefers to use a deep-lying playmaker like Banega or Lo Celso instead of a playmaker because there are only 3 guys behind and he need his midfielders to stay deeper in order to keep the ball and protect the defense, a better balance.

      – I can only see Lanzini as Messi’s backup, but he will be in competition with Dybala and Pastore. No doubt on Lanzini’s talent, he’s been doing great this season but unlike the other 2 guys, he does not have any experience at high level like champions league yet.

      – In this holding midfielder role, I can see Banega, Paredes and Lo Celso as the top 3. If Lo Celso stays in the starting XI of PSG, then I think it’ll be him and Banega in the national team. He is already ahead of Draxler and Pastore in the hierarchy of his club.

      True that comparing to Germany, Spain, Croatia, France and Brazil, our midfielders may seem a bit below, but don’t forget that we have a bunch of talented wingers, lead by Messi in the middle, we play almost with 6 players in the midfield, if Sampaoli finds the right dynamic, I think we can compete with those teams in this zone.

      1. Som's Palchow

        @canadien I like your comment … but want to add some point … Lanzini is in better position now compare to Pastore and Argentina need a playmaker like Lanzini …who can be Provider to Messi[ Dybala might be use as false 9]… I know Lanzini is not tested yet completely but he knows how to forward pass and how to score goal as well ….this season already he is having more than 5 assist. and for current update if you saw today’s match you can understand he can score as well … A complete player in my opinion.

        And for holding midfielder role I guess Banega, Paredes are fixed … Lo Celso will consider as play-maker instead of holding midfielder

        1. canadien royal

          Thanks mate, yes we both agree that Lanzini is a playmaker and me 2 I am quite a big fan of him since he joined West Ham. But as I said, in a 3-3-3-1, in his position, you have already Messi and Dybala. Unless Sampaoli switch to 3-4-2-1, so that the wingers got to play deeper and then yes, we can expect either him or Di Maria playing with Messi behind the forward.

          In this moment, we don’t know yet which system Sampaoli will use. Maybe we will use both depending on which team they play against.

  26. Principe

    In the World Cup, it is nearly impossible to expect our team to win all games. In today’s game, a very strong team like Netherlands in 2014 had to face PK shootout situation against a lowly Costa Rica.

    Brazil had to face PK shootout against Chile in the QF.
    We had to face PK shootout against Netherlands in the SF and was just a few minutes away to also face a PK shootout against Switzerland in the second round.

    If you think of the past:

    In 1990, We had to go through 1 miracle against a very strong Brazil.
    Then we had to face 2 PK shootouts in a row against Yugoslavia and Italy in the QF and SF. If you still remember, our legend, Goyco saved Diego Maradona’s PK failure against Yugoslavia by saving 2 Yugoslavian’s PK.

    Even if you remember our last trophy, which was Copa America 1993, our beloved Goyco again won 2 PK shootout against Brazil and Colombia.

    So we can not deny that there is a strong possibility that our team will face PK shootout in the World Cup.

    We actually had a pretty good record in the World Cup history when it comes to PK shootout. The last defeat I could recall was the one against Germany in 2006.

    Who are our best PK takers?
    Who are our best GK in penalty saved?
    If we face PK shootout, who you would like to be the first 5 to take?

    Allow me to give you the complete statistics of our players full record in the PK situations in their football career. I will start with our best PK takers AND those who realistically have a chance to be among the World Cup squad:

    1. Enzo Perez
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/enzo-perez/elfmetertore/spieler/56066

    4 PK goals and 0 missed
    100%

    Surprisingly Enzo is our best PK taker. Although it is a very small sample, but he has yet to miss a PK in his career.

    2. Diego Perotti: 15 PK goals and 2 misses:
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/diego-perotti/elfmetertore/spieler/54984

    88.2%

    For me Diego is a must. He has more pace than Acuna on the left wing side. He and Di Maria can play together. One as a left forward, one as a left winger. He can be our Jordi Alba, Messi’s favorite teammate. Not only that. He is currently our best PK taker. He would be a perfect sub for Di Maria or Acuna if we are about to face PK shootout. The only negative thing about him is that 2 of his PK missed happened this season.

    3. Paulo Dybala
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/paulo-dybala/elfmetertore/spieler/206050

    17 PK goals and 3 missed
    85%

    Dybala’s PK technique is almost flawless. However, just like Perotti, he missed 3 PK in his career. 2 of them were of this season. For me Perotti and Dybala are a must sub if we are in the knock out stages and if the score is still a draw.

    4. Ever Banega
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/ever-banega/elfmetertore/spieler/12249
    8 goals and 2 missed

    80%

    Yes he failed for us against Chile. But he actually a pretty good PK taker. He already scored 2 this season.

    5. Sergio Aguero
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/sergio-aguero/elfmetertore/spieler/26399

    36 PK goals and 9 missed
    80%

    When you think of Aguero’s PK, we think it is a bit inconsistent. His record is actually pretty good. He scored 4 this season and missed 1. So just like his percentage: 80%

    6. Gonzalo Higuain
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/gonzalo-higuain/elfmetertore/spieler/39153

    18 PK goals and 5 missed
    78.26%

    Wait who? Higuain? I know he missed a crucial PK for us. Maybe that miss against Chile affected him psychologically. But he has yet to miss a PK in 3 years. Still, I still think twice if I were the coach to trust him to take the PK because of the psychological reason. Gonzalo’s technique is great actually, but he has tendency to shoot the ball high.

    7. Lionel Messi
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/lionel-messi/elfmetertore/spieler/28003

    78 PK goals and 22 missed
    78%

    Messi’s PK is not too convincing to me. He needs more power to it. But whenever he tries to add power, sometimes he skied it. But of course, he will be our PK taker no matter what.

    8. Mauro Icardi
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/mauro-icardi/elfmetertore/spieler/68863

    17 PK goals and 5 missed
    77.27%

    Icardi is always an excellent PK taker. His 77.27% seems a bit too low for me. This season, though, he scored 4 and missed 1.

    9. Lucas Biglia
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/lucas-biglia/elfmetertore/spieler/26721

    13 PK goals and 4 missed
    76.47%

    Biglia also had missed for us. His technique is not that good. If I were the coach, I would not trust him.

    10. Manuel Lanzini
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/manuel-lanzini/elfmetertore/spieler/135853

    3 PK goals and 1 missed

    75%

    I don’t think Lanzini will make the squad, but he is a pretty good PK taker.

    11. Papu Gomez
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/papu-gomez/elfmetertore/spieler/20005

    6 PK goals and 3 missed

    66.67%

    Papu’s PK record is questinable. This season, for example, he has missed 2 and scored 2.

    12. Angel Di Maria
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/angel-di-maria/elfmetertore/spieler/45320

    2 PK goals and 1 missed

    66.67%

    Di Maria’s is never a regular PK taker. I remember he took one for Argentina in a friendly and scored, but still I don’t think he will be our first 5.

    Then there are 3 other players with 100% record, but I would not count them because they just take 1 or 2 PK’s in their career. Those are
    1. Eduardo Salvio 2 PK goals and 0 missed
    2. Javier Mascherano 1 PK goals and 0 missed
    3. Leandro Paredes 1 PK goals and 0 missed

    Mascherano’s has also scored one for us in a PK shootout last year I think.

    How about this. Who is our best goalies among 4 in saving PK?
    1. Geronimo Rulli
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/geronimo-rulli/elfmeterstatistik/spieler/229604

    10 PK saved and 23 not saved
    30.3%

    Wow Rulli is actually better than Sergio Romero. And let’s not forget that he saved one from CR7.

    2. Sergio Romero
    https://www.transfermarkt.com/sergio-romero/elfmeterstatistik/spieler/30690

    10 PK saved and 24 not saved
    29.41%

    Unless there is an injury or something, Romero’s will be there playing all minutes in the World Cup. He has a pretty good record actually. However, he has lost 3 PK shootout in a tournament (All in Copa America) and just won 1 in the World Cup. Is he worth the trust?

    3. Nuhuel Guzman
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/nahuel-guzman/elfmeterstatistik/spieler/87859

    6 PK saved and 20 not saved
    23.07%

    Actually this guy is my favorite when it comes to PK shootout situation. Why? This season he had saved 3 PK and just conceded one.

    4. Agustin Marchesin
    https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/agustin-marchesin/elfmeterstatistik/spieler/54534

    8 PK saved and 35 not saved
    18.6%

    Not only for me, he is a bad goalie, he is a bad PK goalie too.
    For me I would rather take Rulli as our third goalie. It is at least good for Rulli’s experience wise.

    So who will be your 5 PK takers?
    For me (in order): Messi, Dybala, Perotti, Enzo Perez, Paredes.

    This is quite likely because Dybala or/and Perotti (if called) should be subs by the World Cup. As is Paredes.

  27. kavindrs

    Lautaro Martinez in NT is a good move.He dribbles well,shoots well,assists well loves possession of ball.

  28. PabloTenBV

    скважин на воду

  29. Cleanball

    Sampaoli have many option with the strikers Pavon,Martinez , Correa and Icardi beside the veterans Kun and Higuain. Pick up the one who can score a lot for N/T. However we have to appreciate to Sampaoli for his trial and effort to bring the best one.
