Following Argentina’s morning practice session, Pablo ZABALETA and Gonzalo HIGUAIN took their turn to attend the press conference and address to the media.
The following are several quotes from them
Pablo ZABALETA on what he felt about the team’s performance this far
"We played against three teams with three different characteristic. The important thing is we are learning. Beyond the nine points we got from our group matches, we know that there is still room for improvement. Now comes the most decisive stage at the World Cup as the games are more like life and death"
On what he thought about the team’s attacking potential "We have a very good attacking line up and we know we must position ourselves & create chances"
Meanwhile Gonzalo HIGUAIN was asked about his feeling on not getting his name on the score sheet and that only Lionel MESSI is scoring "We must not feel despair, we know we have the ability to create chances to score anytime. We know MESSI is capable of winning a game for us anytime, he is a key player for this team"
On the prospect of playing against his Napoli teammates, Valon BEHRAMI, Gokhan INLER and Blerim DZEMAILI
"I know them very well; it will be very complicated as they are quality players. The Swiss team is a strong team which has qualified for the next stage of the World Cup. We watched every game, know their strengths and weaknesses".
HIGUAIN also believed that the team has tremendous potential; if it continues to grow we will be successful.
