Estben CAMBIASSO being watched by SABELLA

Esteban CAMBIASSO is being watched by Alejandro SABELLA.

Esteban CAMBIASSO could make the Argentina team. Alejandro SABELLA has stated that he has been observing a player who he has not yet made his team and there are very strong rumors circulating that the player he is talking about is Esteban CAMBIASSO.

The reason for this seems to be because of Fernando GAGO's troubling injuries.

I am not thinking about the wc final. I am just thinking about the squad against Romania. Let's take one match at a time :) Vamos

Kid, yes the draw favored us and I'm optimistic but playing 7 matches in 4 weeks is way different from playing 18 matches over two years. The physical toll on the bodies is much higher, no matter what continent the WC is in. I just pray that our medical staff use advanced recovery programs. By the way, I watched all the qualifiers we played. South American teams are brave. They come out to play, I didn't see any team parking the bus. European teams do that when they fear their opponents and hit on a counterattack. That's one situation I'd like to see before the WC starts coz this team never really came across that situation so far. I might be wrong but i can't recall any. Even the defensive teams that came to Argentina didn't defend with 9 players. So until we are in the semis, I ll keep my feet on the ground and won't be carried away by theories based on assumptions.

Freeman E I think the conditions will suit Argentina fine, they're playing in the most Southern parts of Brazil which will be basically home games for us..You think its coincidence that Argentina get to play all their group games and second round games in Belo Horizonte which will also be their base? FIFA want to guarantee that all Argentina games are sold out, so they make it more convenient for the Argentinian fans.The group stage games and second round game are going to basically feel like Argentina was playing in Buenos Aries..Their is a big difference between 2002 and 2014, the other teams will have to do the bulk of the traveling and Argentina will have sold out stadiums cheering them on..This team is way better than the 2002 squad..Compare to the teams in group G like USA, Germany, Ghana and Portugal. These teams have to travel up to 90 kilometer between games..Argentina has it more favorably than all the European teams..The games in Group B, Group D and Group G will burnt out the players before they even reach the round of 16.

Our players played world cup qualifier on the same continent for a little over 2 years, what fatigue problem you think the players will have after qualifying through the brutal South American qualifiers? If Argentina could go to the, blazing hot, high altitude stadiums like La Paz, Quito and, Lima I don't see the players having no fatigue or conditions problem in Brazil given their group and the locations, that problem will be for the European teams to work out..

SulaV, that's exactly what I'm talking about, winning the WC is not only about having the best players. If the team switches off for few secs in a KO match things can go wrong. Yes the draw favors us but There many are other factors like player morale, player fatigue & conditioning, self-sacrifice, luck, suspensions, our tactics and the opponents tactics when it comes to winning the whole thing. In 2002, our adversaries parked the bus and we weren't prepared for that. We didn't even experiement Batistuta-Crespo attack just to see how it would have worked and we paid for the naivety. So let's respect our opponents and take game by game. Assumptions won't win the WC for us.

Everyone was talking about Argentina v France Final, only to see the same two leave in the preliminaries. And I suffered for weeks, coz I startedbelieved Guys don't count the chicks before the eggs hatch the WC bring joy and despair at same time. Let's stay level headed and hope we make the semis then, we can start dreaming coz Argentina never lose in the WC semis. What's important is that we win the first 2 games ( Bosnia and Iran) then we can start to talk about how far we can go WC.

Aimar played well in charity match lol even buritto ortega scored an amazing goal in a charity match recently if that is the case lets pick him in the team. Demi omg. There is a feeling for many fans that to earn a call up a defender must play for a well known/top european side. Demi was an integral part of bayern for many years and he hasnt done anything good at international level. No disrespect to aimar, buritto or demi

@kid: lmfao dude..spain are the current world & european champions. the last three major international tournament titles are theirs.
portugal also beat spain 4-0 after the worldcups. then what happened in euro 12. although in shootout, spain beat portugal & went on to win euro thereafter.
we beat germany 1-0 before the worldcup & guess what happened in the worldcup?
Iniesta is known for creating goals rather than scoring goals. Writing iniesta off is barbaric. No one can get the ball off him.
Spain maybe poor in scoring goals,but they know how to win a tournament. They can really up the game where it wants.
You are way too addicted to friendly results kid. It cannot win worldcup for us. Time & time out it has been proved.

The spain 4 vs 1 argentina result was right after spain won the world cup in 2010 . They just won the world cup . did they need to prove anything right after world cup?? the answer is no . argentina was just thrashed 4 - 0 to germany . so in that case argentina had to prove they are a big team.

It's funny people doesn't mention that we have drawn with saudi-arabia in sabella's coaching tenure . Does that mean saudi arabia is equal to argentina ???? or ecuador is equal to argentina lately??? NO WAY......

Our current squad is capable of beating spain . thats it . but its hilarious that people give this kind of childish logic. lol

Most recent result between the two teams. Argentina 4 vs Spain 1 played in Buenos Aires..

Argentina is a greater football nation than Spain so end of story man..Spain was nothing before 2008..Iniesta? Well 2 - 3 years back Iniesta would have been great for Spain but now, he's ineffective for both Barcelona and Spain. Do you even see this guy lately playing for Barcelona? he's slower than a snail and he barely score goals. Spain is poor at scoring goal, end of story, no matter the names you try to come up with.

Baker sorry, but the game changer against Germany/Brazil will be Messi, it don't matter who comes off the bench Messi will have to play a role in any decisive play..

Pique, Ramos and Arbeola against Messi, Aguero, Higuain and Di Maria, that's plenty of game changer right their..Especially with Jordi Alba flying up the pitch, Di Maria will have a field day on that flank..Sorry I'm not trying to underestimate anybody but I just don't see Spain has a big threat to Argentina, their game is way too predictable and slow now, Spain got no flamboyant players in their squad that can take the game to their opponent single handily...

Argentina main threats are Brazil, Germany and Colombia..

aimar may be good or bad at the moment is out of question ..

the reason why sabella looking for cambiasso is for 2 main reasons.
1:sabella is concerned about gagos injuries
2:he doesnt feel banega will be a ideal replacement for gago [finallyu he is considering him as AM]

so here we are looking for good DM who can partener mascherano...? and aimar wont help in this situation

@baker: I've watched cambiasso lately in the hellas verona game and the matches against roma & atalanta. He wasnt worthy of any call up. For your record, you have to remember the big games he played for Argentina where he flopped. He cannot live upto the nt expectations. He can neither contribute in attack nor in defend.
As for aimars case, I ve not seen him since he left benfica. However his performance in charity games along with messi was splendid. the point is that he can still make impact coming from the bench if plan a doesnt work.

hmm yes , he plays slower than our other wingers such as maxi or dimaria.
but ricky has some dribbling skill and one on one passing skill which may be good in the last minutes of the match.

and we need the energy of messi/dimaria in later stages so i want ricky or maxi to come of as sub for them

Fuck cambiasso. He shitted in every big games. He was a total flop. No point of calling him.
As for Aimar he can still make impact coming from the bench. He can certainly change things when plan A is not working. Cambiasso could neither make impact in defending nor in attacking.His big match performances say so..

I don't get people on here sometimes, they complain about our defensive problem yet Cambiasso is a bad idea? Why do we need Aimar now? He's over the hill if you ask me, and Pastore is not getting any playing time at PSG of all places, I mean he should be starting in that league 95% of the times yet he's on the bench..

5 players I see that Sabella should solely concentrate on before the final 23 man squad is selected, and they're; Caballero, Gonzalo, Cambiasso, Yacob and Orban..These are the only players that Sabella should be fixed on, well if another LB from somewhere around the world is taking his league by storm then Sabella could look at such option, but for now I see these 5 players as our top priority..

@kidulthood : i like your line up , but i dont rate willy as much by other mundo fans , but on place of romero surely i will do.


well as per your squad , we have 8 defenders and 4 DMs ,
its a more balanced but we are lacking some depth in attacking midfield option thats where ricky will come in place he can play in dimarias role or maxis role effectively.
so i will sacrifice one of the defenders and include ricky. and if cambiasso is there , i am pretty much ok with that.

and for offense , lamela is not there in my list too

Cambiasso may be slow but he has a brain for the game, and he is ideal for how Sabella wants the midfield to play.

He would be a great add to the team. Don't be surprised if it is at Banega's expense instead of Biglia's though.....

My 23:
GK
1.Caballero
2.Romero
3.Andujar

DEFENDERS

4.Zabaleta

5.Garay

6.Fernandez

7. Campagrano

8. Otamendi

9. Rojo

10. Basanta

11. Coloccini or Gonzalo or Demechelis(I put an extra defender in for an attacking midfield player, so Lamela got left out of my final 23..I also add Demichelis as a wild card, because let's say Man City won the league, Demechelis will play a huge role so I think Sabella is watching his progressing in the BPL this season.)

MIDFIELD (DM)

12. Mascherano

13. Gago

14. Biglia

15. Cambiasso

MIDFIELD (AM)

16.Di Maria

17.Ever Banega

18.Maxi Rodriguez

FORWARDS

19. Messi

20. Aguero

21. Higuain

22. Lavezzi

23. Palacio

This for me is a more balance squad..we have like 3 players in our squad that can play different defensive role, and that's Mascherano, Campagrano and Basanta.

Also I can name 6 possible PK takers: Aguero, Maxi Rodriguez, Messi, Higuain, Di Maria and Mascherano. This will be my first PK 6 but I pray God with the fire power we possess, we don't have to even go down this route at the world cup.

I know some people still have a question sign about Rojo,but its about time you guys move on, because I don't see Sabella dropping Rojo from the final 23. And guys I don't see Yacob making the cut either, I would love for him to make it, because he and I have similar name; My name is Jacob and his name is Yacob... :D

I don't like Cambi, he's gud but very slow. He's not a physical beast of a DM. I'd rather see Lucho Gonzalez over Cambi if he's looking for experience. He's more versatile player coz he can play DM/CM/AM position, he's an aerial threat and he's a better suited to Sabella style.

I don't know how to console you or say something to makes you happy, but maybe some other guy in Mundo can give you special words and telling you how good Romero will be in Brazil and how very special he is to the people in this harmonious squad, and that we shouldn't forget how Romero have saved us so many times before.

You can have a goalkeeper that never plays for his club but you cant have a genius playing regulary in the malaysian league? Aimar is still the best. He can add the spark coming on as a sub.

Once he keeps his form and fitness he is a good person to have on the team. For those who were saying he is SO OLD? Guinazu etc were the same age and some players were even older and people were ok with that.
This is not even a confirmation but if the world cup was tom Cambiasso would be on my squad. As for the Future...when you are this close to the world cup. You have to pick your best team. Time for development and experimentation is over. That is for after the world cup when the next cycle of qualification begins.

It seems perfectly logical to have players like Cambiasso on the books...this is not even confirmation he might go but it shows me that Sabella is already planning back up plans etc. I am one of his biggest critics but in terms of this he seems to be using his head.

Lamela and Alvarez are our future and they have time and they will shine for Albiceleste in the future.

But at this moment I am more comfortable with Maxi and Cambiasso in the WC Squad.

Our Mid Field.

(DM)Masch, (DM)Gago, (AM)Dimaria, (AM)Maxi, (DM)Cambiasso, (DM)Biglia, (AM)Anyone of 0f(Banega/LAMELA/Alvarez)

Cambiasso was always on the cards. Thank you, Sabella.

Yes Cambiasso deserves to be there. His experience is needed to the team and can be proved in advanced stages when it gets locked on our strikers!

I wish he was few years younger but he's not and we need to move on.
Yup, Totti, great player but again, it's the world cup and there is no room for such mistakes.

Dfox I know, that's for one reason Prandelli didn't pick Totti because he's 40 and will be 40 plus at the world cup..

He's blessed and class personified but he's 40 plus and this is the world cup!

I think Zanetti problem is the age factor, if he was 5 - 6 years younger he would definitely be pick..At Zanetti age I don't think its a good idea for him to play in Brazil under the warm conditions..

Yup I agree this time with Mr Sabella. I would rather have someone who have experience in World Cup such as Cambiasso rather than someone new in the tournament to be in the midfield spot. I am very happy with Maxi Rodriguez already in the team. Cambiasso are very much welcomed....any chance we could see Zanetti??? Ansaldi?? What about Caballero??? Just don't bring back Tevez ;)

With Cambiasso, Mascherano, Biglia, Gago as our rock, along with our creative midfield players like Di Maria, Banega and, Maxi Rodriguez in our squad, its clear to say our midfield is solid and in good shape...

It's about fucking time. Going in to the World Cup with all our chips on Gago and Banega is a huge mistake. Even with Ansaldi, Cuchu brings experience and futbol. A welcome addition if it happens.
