With the ongoing debate on what should be the best formation or approach by Alejandro SABELLA, all eyes could also be on player who is bound to reach personal milestone for the National Team.
Should SABELLA name Javier MASCHERANO in the starting line-up in this weekend match against Iran, he will officially gain membership into the Club 100 for Argentina. Yes! It will be his 100th cap ever since making his debut against Uruguay on the 16th of July 2003.
In the history of the Albiceleste, only three players has achieved this feet; Javier ZANETTI (145 Caps), Roberto AYALA (115 Caps) and Diego SIMEONE (106 Caps).
As Diego MARADONA once said "the Argentinian player who is closest to the idea I have about the Argentinian shirt – sweat for it, sacrifice for it, being a professional, being close to the team-mate".
All I can say is that MASCHERANO has been one of our best servants to wear the blue and white shirt for the past 11 years and here’s hoping for more great years from him especially in the six matches
