In a recent interview, Alejandro SABELLA spoke about Carlos TEVEZ, Juan RIQUELME, Javier PASTORE as well as other players and previous matches.
"We have to find alternatives for MESSI's game. For that we have players like SOSA, DI MARIA, HIGUAIN and AGUERO."
"I'm now going to follow TEVEZ more closely. RIQUELME is a very cerebral and an intelligent player. The two will be watched, like everyone else. At first, the team was down because of the Copa America but eager to take revenge and seek a victory. The victory against Colombia away from home, after trailing, did very well to the team. In the match against Chile, we didn't have much of the ball but we were very strong, the opposite of the game against Venezuela."
"Against Bolivia, it was a game where we had several chances to score, but didn't convert. Although we were not as explosive, we deserved to win. In the first half against Colombia, we were solid, but we didn't have an offensive game. In the second, we were quick to get creative and scored."
"I often think about putting MASCHERANO as a CB, it's like having two players in one. He reads the game very well. There's also the possibility that PASTORE or DI MARIA play as as third forward."
It has also been confirmed that Argentina's World Cup qualifier match against Ecuador will be played in Buenos Aires at the Monumental. In October, when Argentina plays against Uruguay (World Cup qualifier), the match will be played in Mendoza while the qualifier against Paraguay in September will be in Cordoba.
