Rojo too, but i dont consider him even a b team player. Dinucci (Argentina) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 5:11 PM 0 Not only was the penalty a bad call, the first goal was pure luck. Dfox (United States) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 2:59 PM 0 I keep hearing 2nd team, No Messi, Kun, Higuain, DiMaria, Garay, Gago, Mascherano, hell even el pocho.. and that's 2nd team! dmjo (Kenya) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 2:04 PM 0 Viva argentina with the second team they played really well more especially Biglia,palacio and federico fernandes this trio were outstanding,sabella has done great job so far and argentina are tittle contenders in brazil 2014,but there are some issues here need to adressed,like calling news players such as cludio yacob,lucas ocampos,nicolas otamendi,willy caballero,and salvio or gaitani.i feel pitty for federico fernandes and romero 4 not playing in the 1st team for their clubs yet we depend on them for argentina. argentine (Ghana) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 10:10 AM 0 i never like Romero on post for argentina,we should consider malaga goalie. arg2014 (Canada) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 10:03 AM 0 @trini, you are correct, the formation now makes it even harder to Sabella to select his subs.....not to mention playing some players in a different position than theirs. trini (Trinidad And Tobago) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 9:48 AM 0 @canadienroyal. Dida in 2002 was also the keeper for AC Milan. He was World Class. Lets not compare Romero to him. Brazil used a 4-3-3 formation with Ronaldihno Rivaldo and Ronaldo. They played to their strengths just like we need to do in order To have a chance to win the WC. Hence I cannot understand why Sabella did Not stick with that formation to see who can play in it and thus help Him with his selection . We are not going to win the WC playing a 5-3-2 or a 4-4-2. Simple! KidultHood (United States) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 8:53 AM 1 Uruguay 32% possession --- Argentina 68% possessionshots 16 ( 4 on target)--- shots 12 (6 on target)Fouls committed 22 ------ Fouls committed 13corner kicks 7 ------- corner kicks 4Saves 4 ------- saves 1Argentina dominated a first string Uruguay team with their second string team..But the guys did well though, what I like though is that the team kept their tempo not getting unnecessary red cards that's a good thing going into the finals. yo (Malaysia) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 8:23 AM 0 @ abs i am really cofused with call up--- Brana, Somoza, Dominguez, and Sosa.. What was he thinking ?lol yo (Malaysia) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 8:08 AM 0 bad defending... Kenneth (United States) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 2:24 AM 0 Did Lugano touch the ball on the first goal? If so wouldn't it be offsides? Johnny (United States) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 1:42 AM 0 Mano y mano with Cavani. Can't blame that one on Romero. He came out last match and got lobbed. Damned if you and damned if you don't. Abs (United States) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 1:35 AM 0 @Batigol9:Why Romero didn't move where exactly ?If he goes forward then we could've witnessed another loop, and other than that he couldn't do a shit ! asjbest (Indonesia) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 1:33 AM 0 @flaco: I believe our midfield and forward is super now... I always concern on the defense... Still should try Cabalerro and add up otamendi for defense to try pairing with garay.... just try it, when it is not good just give it up... Batigol9 (Estonia) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 1:23 AM 0 Terrible goals!1st Urugyay goal - awful defending by Argentina1st Argentina goal - awful defending by Uruguay2nd Uruguay goal - Suarez dive2nd Argentina goal - awful defending by Uruguay3rd Uruguay goal - awful defending by Argentina (and why Romero didn't move???)And yes, Romero is bad canadienroyal (France) Posted on 10/16/2013 at 1:09 AM 0 totally agreed with abs, can't say better. I saw conca playing few games as I lived in China for a while and he's amazing on the ball. frankly if sosa can play for NT, I don't see why conca can't. seems to me that romero is going to be the GK and why not winning the wc with him? Remember Brazil won in 2002 with Dida. Besides, I think the ultimate solution for fixing the problem of left back may be moving Zaba to the left and use campagnaro on the right. or even moving to a system 3-4-3(may sound dumb), using campagnaro-fernandez-garay , zabaleta-maschereno-gago-di maria, messi-higuain(or aguero)-ricky alvarez. a bit like brazil in 2002. flaco (Canada) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 11:49 PM 0 IF you watch the game on BeInSport you can hear everything. Sabella called someone son of a gun. thats the pg term for what he said. and He was asking for a yellow card for one of the uruguayan player. lol flaco (Canada) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 11:45 PM 1 @ Asjbest i wouldnt describe the defense as awful. if you consider the impliment of dominguez in there. i believe he was the weakest link. overall i think they show some poise of some one on one situations. the first goal came off a cramble no one knew where the ball was, and forget about the second one, because SUAREZ was up to his tricks again. But you can blame the 3rd on the bad pass by FF. but i think the reason why they got exposed its because Sabella plans was to be offensive. if you notice CAMP AND BASANTA move up more often then any other games in the qualifiers. In my opinion ,i think it was a test by Sabella. asjbest (Indonesia) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 10:22 PM 0 bad romero... the penalty should be easily blocked... auww awful defense... i can think of when we face germany with 11 players.... oooowww danger if sabella does not make a change in our defense... Ayrton18 (United States) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 10:15 PM 0 Zaba,FF,garay,camp would be a better line up than 85%teams defence line ups Abs (United States) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 10:12 PM 2 I couldn't catch the game before the 60th min, so all my comments will be based on that plus the highlights. I chose not to give ratings, coz otherwise I'll be giving 2s and 3s..First of all my focus will go on Sabella for calling Brana, Somoza, Dominguez, and Sosa.. What was he thinking ?Brana: Got injured without even playing ?! So, when you know these two games wouldn't really matter, then why call old dead bodies ?!Somoza: I'll be unfair to say anything bad about him, but to call someone to play him for 20mins, then why not give the call to a young potential player like Yacob ?!Dominguez: I don't know where to start, the guy was hardly moving in the field, and it pissed me off that he actually have Roncoglia on the bench .. Wake up Sabella !!Sosa: What does he see in him, I don't know .. The guy lacked everything about football, wrong passes, idiot shot, no positioning, can't control .. They guy plays in Ukraine Metalist,I am not sure if he even get mins there .. And Sabella, if you wanna call random players, then there s a guy called Conca who plays in China, maybe you can call him for the national team. At least he does something with his team, and they reached their contenant Champions League final. Oh, and he is younger than Sosa.Now back to the players..Basanta: I am not sure if he is a natural LB to begin with, and he isn't such an upgrade to Rojo. So Sabella should really put his effort in finding a LB. (Hint: Ansaldi, Insua)A. Fernandez: Not a national team material, and he won't add anything to the national team. In the world cup, you'll have only 20 players, 10 starters, and 10 subs, and we need to optimize that the most. the subs should be capable of making a difference.Maxi: Too bad he couldn't score the a hat-trick .. Always liked this guy, and I hate that he left Liverpool, but he really needed playing mins and he is one of the good subs. Age is scary, but at least he is better than most of the others.Lamela: Clearly screwed his chance, hopefully Sabella doesn't cut him off, coz I believe with time he'll be capable to add something.Palacio: I know I agreed with @Johnny about him being in the national team, but god, if he won't play as a CF then NO .. There are better options, I would call Saviola ahead of him. To me, he is just not up to it, no matter how hard he try.Icardi: You got the game, now see you in 2018On the positive side..Romero: He'll be our 1st GK, like it or not. Stay behind him. He isn't bad after all.Campagnero: I am glad we have him in the national team, coz even with his age the guy can play anywhere at the back, and can be on par with anyone else.FF: Clearly missed Garay at the back line, need to focus more on the counter attacks.Biglia: Not a hardcore DM, but get the job done, and a good sub for our midfield.Banega: The kid is creative, and have a vision, need to work on his fitness and be consistent.Again, we only have 10 subs, and we need to be very careful with that. The starting 11 are confirmed, and the remaining spots are limited (after including Camapagnero, Biglia, Banega, Maxi, Lavezzi, and unfortunately Palacio) .. So Sabella need to pick them wisely, and not be convinced with Colo, Basanta, Lamela, and Fernandez. Dfox (United States) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 9:52 PM 0 Uruguay didn't impress anybody with their full squad and playing at home. LETS GO JORDAN. Sol (United States) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 9:50 PM 0 Too bad they couldn't hold Uruguay to one point. The difference was the abysmal PK call for Suarez? It was a only half-hearted flop and he still got the call. Dfox (United States) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 9:43 PM 0 you heard that too some supporter, that was funny as HELL hehehe some supporter (Argentina) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 9:41 PM 0 So THIS is the team where Rojo belongs.Lots of mistakes, they weren't focusing on the game, Uruguay's third goal started because of horrible passing from the "defence." Nice to hear Sabella openly insulting through the ambient microphones though, was kind of funny and relieving (hey, at least the man knows that defense blows.) Dfox (United States) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 9:41 PM 1 C+ team is more like it and they played great against a full Uruguayan squad playing at home, nm the bullshit Penalty. Dinucci (Argentina) Posted on 10/15/2013 at 9:37 PM 1 Out B TEAM played a really good game.
