Alejandro SABELLA spoke about Lucas BIGLIA, Sergio ROMERO and more.
Alejandro SABELLA spoke on the radio and commented about players. Here's what he had to say:
Lucas BIGLIA and Fernando GAGO:
"He's coming here for his medical check-ups, he looks okay to me, he won't have problems (getting to Brazil). It's probable he'll be short of football because of a period out of action and due to a lack of full movement of his knee. BIGLIA could play in place of MASCHERANO just like he can play in place of GAGO".
"Against Romania, there were 26 who were called and from there, 4 more will be added to the 30."
"The objective we need to aim for is to be in the last four where Argentina have not been for some time. We must go step by step, getting there is not easy and in the last 16 or quarter-finals you can get more complicated opponents, you can have a bad day and those teams can send you home."
"Generally, Argentina have gone to the World Cup with an aura (of favourites), there's the passion, the desire and forecast that they could be world champions, I think it's always been like that. This time a bit more so because MESSI's has been in his splendour in the national team and because we're playing in our neighbour's backyard and can almost feel like we're at home."
SABELLA also stated that Sergio ROMERO will be the starting goalkeeper at the World Cup.
