Sebastian Garcia (Seba)

Sebastian Garcia was born just a few blocks from the place where a certain Diego Armando Maradona first kicked a football. Regretfully for this Argentine sports journalist, he arrived to this world in the year 17 AD (After Diego) and all the talent and ability were already captured by the greatest player in the history of mankind. From then on, Sebastian had to make do with punching some keys and writing about football.

He worked for Clarin newspaper and ESPN in Buenos Aires before taking part of Press Operations in several major sporting events such as the Beijing Olympics (watching Argentina winning Gold at the Bird's Nest and shaking hands with El Diego), the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympics, the Turin 2006 Winter Olympics, the France 2007 Rugby World Cup and the Rio 2007 PanAm Games amongst others.

Some of Sebastian Garcia's freelance work was published in several newspapers and magazines such as FourFourTwo (England); Offside (Sweden); ESPN (Mexico) and GloboEsporte and Placar (Brazil).

Sebastian appeared in a few episodes of the Soccernet Podcast as a South America Correspondent and also wrote a blog for Soccernet about Argentina in both of the last two World Cups. After Germany 2006, he thought of creating a new blog called Mundo Albiceleste and was later joined by John, Roy and Ziggy who all helped him make of Mundo Albiceleste the best website in the world for Argentina fans.


Ziad Ziadeh (ZiggY)

Born in Lebanon '81, Ziggy has been a passionate supporter of the Albiceleste ever since following the likes of Maradona, Caniggia and Batistuta in the early 90's. His love for the game and loyalty for the Blue & White shape a big part of his life and anyone that gets to know him can attest to that.

Football aside, Ziggy currently works in Lebanon as a lead Software Solutions Architect and is currently finishing off his MBA. Being Microsoft Certified, specialized in Web Development, he has an almost equal passion for developing web applications.

On April fool's of 2009, the day his beloved Diego & Argentina suffered a humiliating defeat to Bolivia in La Paz (which he still thinks was a prank), Ziggy found Mundo Albiceleste and quickly became a regular visitor. Mundo has ever since been the perfect niche for Ziggy to share his views, contribute ideas, discuss tactics, vent frustration/anger... just like any other mad supporter.

During the 2010 World Cup, Ziggy thought of combining his expertise with his love for Argentine football and so he approached the Mundo Albiceleste team with the initiative of lifting the site to a higher level. He then joined the Mundo team and went on to develop the site into what it is today with all its exciting features.


Roy Nemer

Born in Lebanon but raised in Canada, this life long Argentina fan joined the Mundo Albiceleste staff in 2009.

Living in Canada for most of his life, attending an Argentina match seemed improbable. But Roy finally fulfilled his dream of watching the Albicelestes live at the stadium. That match being Argentina vs. Korea DPR at the U20 World Cup in 2007 where Argentina won 1-0 courtesy of a Sergio AGUERO goal.

Roy stumbled upon Mundo Albiceleste a few months prior to the 2007 Copa America and he was instantly hooked. The Copa America came and went but Roy stayed in Mundo Albiceleste for good.

Finally, in March 2009, Roy joined the Mundo Albiceleste staff and contributed not only via posting news, but also by adding his own little twist on statistics, adding graphics to the website, taking care of the "Players" section and more.


Sivan John

Born and raised in Malaysia but his heart and soul has always been about Argentina. Ever since he witness Diego Maradona lifting the World Cup in 1986 as a six year old, it was a life changing experience and there was no turning back for this lifelong Albiceleste fan.

John first discovered Mundo Albiceleste (back when it was called Vamos Argentina) during the 2006 World Cup in Germany. It was here where he found the perfect place for him to talk about his all time favourite subject.

Since then, he became a regular visitor of this blog and often sharing his own views and giving comments at the same time with fellow readers. Keen to write and express about his true passion, he joined force with Sebastian Garcia as a co-writer in March 2007.

Along the way, he has provided many great ideas as a well finding out about even the smallest of events involving an Argentine athlete, as well as the latest videos of goals, smashes, putts, tries or three-pointers with Albicelestes in action anywhere in the world.

    On this day in 2006, Lionel MESSI scored his first ever goal for the Argentina National Team. MESSI scored his first goal for Argentina on March 1, 2006 in a friendly match against Croatia. A match which ended 3-2 in Croatia's favor. 
    The media in Argentina has been reporting that the AFA has not paid Tata MARTINO or his coaching staff since October. 
    On this day in 2012, Lionel Messi scored his first ever hattrick for the Argentina National Team vs. Switzerland. February 29, 2012 marked the day Lionel MESSI scored his first hattrick for the National Team in a 3-1 win against Switzerland.
