You brought it up right!Like Messi said about the remaining matches of the league:We will do whatever it takes to win la liga, we're not gonna waste the given chance!Then he should say:We are going to Brazil for Glory. Be the champions or die tryin!I already participated and failed in two, but the third is mine! Abs (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 9:22 PM 0 @Mr. Khan:I thought Rojo is on his way to England, and most likely Liverpool. Tizeboule (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 2:03 PM 1 Though this Brazilian teams is very young, Brazilian's passion for this world cup outweighs any weakness this team might have. To be successful on any sport especially in soccer passion for the game is crucial, pride in the national team, its histoy, its glory is very crucial. Unfortunately, that's what Argentina lacks now. Despite all the weapons we have, we don't believe we are the best and that weighs on the team confidence. To be a champion, a team must be ready physically, technically, and last but not least mentally strong.We lost a copy america 3-0 against an inexperienced Brazilian team ! Wagner love!! Who is that. Yes before the game the coach told them believe you can beat this Argentinian team and play hard,they did. We lost with a healthy riquelme messi tevez gago aguero hheinze Samuel ext on the field.So the injuries of our current players is not the only problem.Who's job is it to inspire these players to win a world cup? SabellaHe needs to say it out loud that our goal is to be champion not aiming for semi final because Argentina hasn't been there in decades.He needs to tell messi that he's getting old and this might be his last healthy world cup and just as Brazil wants to win in order to erase the 1950 disgrace, this team wants to erase 2002 disgrace, we want to dedicate this cup for batigol Balbo veron riquelme Redondo almeida Ortega crespo quilly gonzalez ectCome on Argentina it's been 28 freaking years you haven't won Nada theAbNorMalOne (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 12:33 PM 0 One man can be a direct replacement for DiMaria.He is the first ever argentine to win a league title,UCL and a worldcup trophy in the same year,who also got a statue on allianz arena front gate,got standing ovation in San Mames.Guess who??? haman (Bahrain) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 11:34 AM 0 Cool, its THC free then. BooM >> KidultHood (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 11:30 AM 0 Pradi Gago and Banega has been with Sabella since he got the coaching job..Did you even see Banega goal vs Italy? or Banega goal away to Bolivia at high altitude? All these guys are proven under Sabella, so picking guys like Gaitan and Cambiasso is not wise for the team chemistry at this point..If Gaitan were to be apart of the team it would have happen like 2 years ago, I definitely don't see it happening now..Argentina have rack up the most goals out of all national team, trust me, Sabella doesn't need Gaitan at this point..Finalizing the defense and goalkeeper position are Sabella only concern at the moment..Sabella have said time and time again, that the team for him is good from the midfield upward, so why constantly bringing up players names that wont be on the squad? I can't wait for Sabella to select the wc squad so we can move on from team selection debate.. Pradi (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 11:15 AM 0 Really i feel gaitan n perez shud be in team... The imprtnt thing is back up to di maria... 2nd injury concerns... Earlier i felt about kun that he is over concerned about WC... Bt nw feel he had really some issues, everytime wen he com back frm injury he is struggling aftr a good run... Against tottenham, barca n now this time... We can risk him in the squad coz he is valued dat much but i m not sure on including both gago n banega... 100% sure gago cant play full games, also not sure hw banega works, so inclusion f perez will b a brilliant option... If anything happen at that time it will really turn out to a helpless situation... Sudhirfadi (Japan) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 10:17 AM 0 Athletico- champion league,real madrid- copa del rey and barcelona- liga VVBA that what i see.... Finally all argentine will hang a medals this season in spain SulaV (Canada) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 9:59 AM 0 @vimalYOU mixed some herbs with that tobacco didnt you? :D what i mean is to get flavours like strawberry , orange... :P :P.. vimal (Malaysia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 9:49 AM 0 hahahaha....tats jz shisha bro...oh yeah with tobacco innit lol...i seriously think sabella has to include gaitan in the team..hv u guys been watching him play in benfica recently?? he is fantastic..no words..silky dribblin skills with pace..great for counter attackin football..rarely loses d ball..he looks dangerous in front of d goal too..definitely a must..direct replacement for di maria..he cud play in d group stages to gv di maria a rest guled (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 9:37 AM 1 great news to hear , still sabella needs to consider one of the benfica boys as back up we don,t have any backup for di maria Aslam (Qatar) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 9:27 AM 0 Glad to hear...it is just a minor one...Dimaria is going through his best ever season. Both in terms of goals and assists. He has improved a lot. Hope he is in career best shape at world cup. Sudhirfadi (Japan) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 9:22 AM 0 Really great news...... Now di maria should rest against celta vigo.......according to ole , "man city may loan out zaculini for his further betterment. Zaculini recent form is not so good." Khan (Bangladesh) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 8:51 AM 1 Barcelona is looking for sign Marcos Rojo. Talks are going on... Pradi (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 8:50 AM 1 Truely a great news.... haman (Bahrain) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 8:45 AM 0 Vimal- You gotta be glad, since you're puffing on some!What are you smoking dude? vimal (Malaysia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 7:56 AM 0 omg...glad to hear that....thx guys :) baker (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 7:54 AM 0 hope RM doctors are not desperate to make him in to the squad. Batigol9 (Estonia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 7:47 AM 0 Õu jee!Great news. And hopefully Di Maria can rest before CL final, that would be good for Argentina baker (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 7:44 AM 4 Glad newsssssssssss guyssssssssssssss"Angel di Maria has undergone some tests have ruled this morning that a muscle tear. The player has a small edema in the pectineus, a muscle up to the groin, because of bad gesture Pucelle last night hunting a fumble. No breakage, so if all goes as expected, reach the final in Lisbon. Vigo is ruled out and will evolve depending on how it could be playing against Espanyol. In addition, the hip rotadura you have very sore, but you're dealing with the physios. The Argentine therefore relieved breath and his coach, Ancelotti, who may have one of their titularísimos in contention for the Tenth.

Caniggia (Hong Kong) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 6:37 AM 0 I hope Dimaria doesn't win the champs league so he will feel more hunger for the WC like Messi and Aguero. Boudou (Lebanon) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 6:29 AM 0 on the 13 of May Aslam (Qatar) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 6:01 AM 0 When is Sabella going to announce the team ? Batigol9 (Estonia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 5:51 AM 0 @DinucciI think, Di Maria has at least TOP3 long pass accuracy in football right now Batigol9 (Estonia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 5:43 AM 0 “I don’t think Cristiano’s problem is a big thing, but Pepe didn’t end the game in good shape and we will see with Di Maria, although that shouldn’t be too serious either,” said Ancelotti.Let's just hope, this is not serious and he just can get his well deserved rest Batigol9 (Estonia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 5:41 AM 0 holy shit.well, now I pray.. vimal (Malaysia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:56 AM 0 :( vimal (Malaysia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:55 AM 0 http://hereisthecity.com/en-gb/2014/05/08/manchester-unitd-and-arsenal-handed-boost-in-di-maria-pursuit/ cleanball (Indonesia) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:54 AM 0 Angel Di Maria is just fine, he will be in the WC and play for Albiceleste. Di Maria is on fire and much needed by club and N/T for lifting the ECL and WC trophy, since his transformation to be a 'play-maker' and his great assist. Pradi (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:46 AM 1 wtf...!!!:-( Bt it look like a pain on stretching only... Bloody hell... Toby (United Kingdom) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:43 AM 1 It's extraordinary how Di Maria has turned our opinion of him around. A few years back, he was public enemy no. 1, and now look. Good on him :)P.S. Maybe this means that Jose Sosa will be our star player come 2018 :P Saikot (New Zealand) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:43 AM 0 I DONT THINK WE HAVE AN ALTERNATE FOR DI MARIA. IS THERE ANY UPDATE NEWS ON HIS INJURY baker (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:25 AM 0 Now barca will also stretch hard in next two matches .i dont want another injury :( FIL (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:20 AM 1 There is no concrete information regarding this injury....just rumors..hope he will be fine before wc Amlan (Bangladesh) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 4:07 AM 0 The most important player for us in the world cup. Even more than Messi when we play some physically strong teams who have a specific plan to shut Messi down.We need Aguero, we need Di Maria, we need Pipita. We need all of them fully fit and ready for the mission. Aslam (Qatar) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 3:30 AM 0 And that would be the end of our third title hope if he miss the WC..i value him more than Messi in this Sabella's team....what a disaster for Argentina.. joji (Kenya) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 2:56 AM 0 Like i said,mistakes done by previous argentina managers will hunt them again.leaving out inform players.salvio and gaitan are not world cup material.solution get tevez,iturbe and icardi.but not sabella pride is the argentina downfall.if de maria is out ,then that is it.argentina just may be will reach quater finals.otherwise world cup is gone Johnny (Thailand) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 2:47 AM 0 Gaitan is the one for one replacement for Di Maria, but he isn't half as good. Despite that, he is a fine footballer. theAbNorMalOne (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 2:46 AM 0 I think Sabella will use a 4-4-2 formation to counter DiMaria absence.So Maxi-Masche-Gago-Ricky looks promising and defensively sound sacrificing flair and pace. Abs (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 2:34 AM 0 @Baker:Hopefully we won't need a replacement, because if that's the case then it won't be pleasant. Since the player who should replace Di Maria will be the same player who will replace Kun (who won't be 100% fit every game in the WC)That been said, Nico and Salvio should be considered as an option to replace Di Maria, since Ricky, Maxi, and Augusto are only good subs. SulaV (Canada) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 2:08 AM 0 we dont have a replacement for di maria. sad but true. ! haman (Bahrain) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 1:50 AM 1 HS.. It didn't look serious, though!I think he has time to hale. Now Sabella shouldn't even hesitate of thinking about Gaitan, the best replacement for Di Maria. Note that he recently played in the same position for Benfica as a left sided midfielder, where he excels in all aspects!GWS Noodle! Richard (Netherlands) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 1:21 AM 0 Damn. DiMaria was the only one of the fav4 in top form. With Aguero injury prone and Higuain missing games due to injury and Messi not at his best, we're in trouble. I am afraid Lavezzi and Palacio will be getting a lot of playing time at the WC. DM's replacements in the expected 23 are not even half as good as him... Damn. theAbNorMalOne (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 12:57 AM 0 I think it's pure mind game from Ancelotti.What will someone think about ucl final now.Now he will be making strategic tweaks in his plans.So he will change the plan in next two league matches.What will it feel like for him,he prepared for a volcano but have to face a tsunami.Tata did the same to ancelotti by playing messi on wing and made him look amateur. Sudhirfadi (Japan) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 12:38 AM 0 Baker, maxi rodriguez and ricky are only the option to replace mighty maria. KidultHood (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 12:38 AM 0 Baker Argentina can manage in the group stage without Di Maria but he will definitely be needed for the knockout stage..lets just hope he can recover in time..I don't even want to imagine Di Maria not starting for us in the first round.. baker (India) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 12:29 AM 0 guys on a side note , i am sure he can be fit my WC . but if he may miss some of the matches . who can fit in to the system..? KidultHood (United States) Posted on 5/8/2014 at 12:19 AM 0 Messi genius- Unfortunately Di Maria will never get the respect he deserves at Real Madrid..I hope Di Maria will sit out the rest of Real Madrid season so he can be fresh and ready to go at the world cup..Di Maria is the hardest working player on that Real Madrid team, why you think Ancelotti played him in so many games.. baker (India) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 11:48 PM 0 Yesterday i watched the match till 70 min and went for sleep , just now i opened my laptop and as usual i checked mundo , @Roy: please please dont post such hear breaking headlines , i am still in shock . some one please tell me it is not that serious . He is most important player and with out him we will struggle guled (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 11:41 PM 0 Di maria is killing him self for Real Madrid but yet they don't respect him , he should take it easy SulaV (Canada) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 11:25 PM 0 better 3 weeks than 3 months!! Btw is he going tho be fully fit in 3 weeks?? Joshua Nickalson (India) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 11:03 PM 0 He's vital for Argentina's counter attack, hope he recovers soon. Johnny (Thailand) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 10:36 PM 0 Love it that RM stubbed their toe. Hate it that Di Maria is injured. Maybe Messi and Aguero called Di Maria and got him on board their "we're hurt and we can't play too much" bandwagon. Abs (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 10:25 PM 0 If it is Di Maria or any one from our starting 11 plus the useal 5 subs then we are screwed, simply because Sabella refused to give chances to any other player from the list of 16 !! mmh007 (Argentina) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 10:09 PM 0 Di-Maria will be ready for WC. But further news will be updated xtreme (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:48 PM 0 3 weeks seems very long, I don't think it's that serious to be honest. If it really did take 3 weeks I think it was just to make him miss the rest of the season so he could prepare himself for the world cup and not risking world cup, not even for champions league final. Sol (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:47 PM 0 Wow... What a gut punch Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:39 PM 0 So his season with RM is OVER! cleanball (Indonesia) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:35 PM 0 Keep my finger crossed that Angel Di Maria is just fine and ready for the WC. He's one of the important and core figure that Albiceleste can't miss. No replacement for this guy.However, Sabella need to open his envelope and review the players names list again and make sure to brings a high spirit and gallant players. Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:19 PM 0 exactly San Isidro San Isidro (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:17 PM 1 Hip San Isidro (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:17 PM 1 For the record, does anybody care about who wins anything if it costs argentina players in the World Cup??? I think not. Let's just hope all our guys get there healthy Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:16 PM 0 Injury type? San Isidro (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:14 PM 1 More news is coming out. It looks like he will be out about 3 weeks but will know more Friday. http://ios.clarin.com/#Di-Maria-termino-tocado-lesion_0_1133887050 argentuban (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:09 PM 0 If Atletico wins their match prior to meeting Barcelona, it won't be a must win for them. A draw for them would suffice. And that assumes Barcelona doesn't choke against Elche. Simeone may not want to risk too much of his team given that he can just park the bus. Barcelona fail miserably against any team that does that anyways.If Atletico Madrid win their next match, Real are out of the title race. Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 9:04 PM 0 I don't think Messi enjoyed playing against AM this season since his initial injury, the game where that....Godin was urging one of his teammates to hit him where it hurts. xtreme (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:56 PM 0 I don't want messi to play the final game either but I think messi will be fine if he plays safely. Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:37 PM 0 I don't know about the rest of you, but I do NOT want to see Messi play against AM when its a must win for both teams. argentuban (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:24 PM 0 Barcelona win their final two matches they win the league. They could actually salvage something from this season. argentuban (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:21 PM 0 If it's one of those hip injuries its iffy.Remember that Madrid don't give a shit about DiMaria's World Cup aspirations, and that why haven't really been very supportive of him in the past. IF he is injured, they will push him to play for La Decima regardless.Hopefully it's minor...or even better he sits out. Khan (Bangladesh) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:20 PM 2 Off topic: After the lost points of Real Madrid, Liga BVBA is wide open now. Tata has got a chance to win a tittle! Khan (Bangladesh) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:18 PM 2 Without F4, I don't think we have a chance after Q.Finale. Fantastic 4 : Argentina's 4 Aces.. Dinucci (Argentina) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:15 PM 0 @xtreme exactly Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:13 PM 0 Dimaria is extremely important, they ALL are and all are needed to be in tiptop shape to have a chance to lift the trophy. Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:11 PM 0 I hope his season is over at this point.Nobody on their sorry team worked harder this season! SulaV (Canada) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:10 PM 0 Just found out that madrid drew their game and immediately came here to type some anti madrid hate comments and found this news and i nearly got a heartattack!!!... and kudos to my fellow mundo members for sharing the news regarding Angels's injury and for saving my life !! Hopefully he is alright!!DiMaria is equally important as messi if Argentina is to win the Wc. We need him more than ever!!!! xtreme (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:07 PM 0 Di maria might be taking the long free kicks with a chance of header but the short range ones belong to messi for the direct goal scoring chance. DO YOU KNOW JESUS? (Ghana) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:06 PM 0 ooooh noo again!!! u know? when anything good is coming, this is what happens. AFA should just pray to God. No matter what argentina will win the world cup. Dinucci (Argentina) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:05 PM 0 I really hope di maria shares the free kicks with messi in the wc. His crossing is insanely accurate xtreme (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 8:00 PM 1 *sore hip that is, just about right. I bet angel will be included in RM upcoming game, hopefully he will sit out though. he desperately needs a rest, been playing load of games. Dinucci (Argentina) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:59 PM 1 Di maria injury not so serious. Madrid seem more worried about pepe. Ronaldo also seems ok. Toby (United Kingdom) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:59 PM 0 Fingers crossed. Vital for our chances. mamoun "elpipita" (Iraq) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:58 PM 4 I'm not panicked or stressed, why? because until we hear something concrete there is no reason to assume that Angel's injury is world cup fatal (I'm a 'glass half full' kind of guy).And the reason why I'm not stressed is because even if Di-maria's is set to miss out on the WC it doesn't mean the end for the albicelestes, not THIS ablicelestes group. Rarely has the team played with fab 4 and the full squad and they've done just fine; the team survived without kun and Gago for long stretches of time and we all saw that even Messi absence doesn't mean the absence of winning for this team.Am I bumped about Angel's injury? you bet I am! he's integral to the team but non of you should under-estimate the chemistry and comradery that Sabella has built into this team in the last 2 and half years and I believe that this Argentina can handle any obstacle in it's way.p.s. I remind all of you that we still have no offical word on Angel's injury so lets just try to wait and see before pushing the panic button. xtreme (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:56 PM 1 that was just retarded, i saw di maria went down for like 30 sec without anyone touching him, and then get back up running again, didnt even need medics to come lift him out, and he could be out for the world cup? This is just beyond dumb haha. mmh007 (Argentina) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:54 PM 0 Fucking knew it San Isidro (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:50 PM 2 This is horse shit reporting. Here is the report on canchallena , if you cannot read use google translate. Quit scaring people with rumors and lets get the facts.http://canchallena.lanacion.com.ar/1688519-real-madrid-angel-di-maria Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:50 PM 0 FUCK THE Champions League and I hope AM destroys your club 10times over. xtreme (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:44 PM 2 ancelotti said he does not think it was serious, and where the hell rumor came from? They know better than the manager? I hate the fake news trying to scare people, may god bless Angel. Batigol (Hong Kong) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:37 PM 1 Pray for Angel...We need him in the World Cup. KidultHood (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:30 PM 0 'We believe that Di Maria is not serious,' said coach of Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti, at press conference. The problem is that the injury occurred in an area that is more difficult to cure than usual. That must wait for Friday to make studies. Just so you know exactly what it is, although it is a fact that Angel may not be present in the final of the Champions League. We pray to make it the only thing that is lost. Dfox (United States) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:09 PM 0 WTF!! Khan (Bangladesh) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:09 PM 1 @Roy, Please give some official info... pablo.d (New Zealand) Posted on 5/7/2014 at 7:07 PM 1 this is just not fair, gago, kun, di maria, maxi all with injury problems.3 of them are key players for us.
