Oh, I would rather finish second in the group and I could make the trip up north for the QF game.
And the USA group, Klinnsy better start looking for a new job.
any idea when tata will release roster
Disappointed Argentina aren't playing anywhere near me.
So then, who will we lose to in the final this time, I reckon it will be to Brazil.
You could always support another team...
Nah, I've been supporting Argentina since 1978 so I'm stuck with them.
Preliminary list (to be reduced to 23 players)
Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero, Nahuel Guzmán, Agustín Marchesín, Mariano Andújar
Defenders: Pablo Zabaleta, Facundo Roncaglia, Gabriel Mercado, Jonatan Maidana, Nicolás Otamendi, Ezequiel Garay, Mateo Musacchio, Ramiro Funes Mori, Marcos Rojo, Leonel Vangioni, Javier Pinola, Emmanuel Mas, Martín Demichelis
Midfielders: Javier Mascherano, Matías Kranevitter, Augusto Fernández, Enzo Pérez, Lucas Biglia, Javier Pastore, Éver Banega, Ángel Di María, Erik Lamela
Forwards: Lionel Messi, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Nicolás Gaitán, Sergio Agüero, Gonzalo Higuaín, Paulo Dybala, Ángel Correa, Carlos Tevez, Lautaro Acosta
There isn't one pleasant surprise from his selections.
There's bigger chance Argentina will be in final again and Brazil not. But off course we will probably fail to score again or lose on shootout, you just have the feeling its going to be the same story. 2004, 2006 (QF) 2007, 2014, 2015..... although I always support them. For me its Argentina or nothing.
The likes of Lavezzi, Tevez and Banega... they're out of date. Demichellis ? wow.
Luckily Messi and Masche dont have to play CL semis and final. But then again...there are many Argentines on that list that made it to the last four.
LOL.. The Mexicans did a similar promo last year for the Gold Cup, but this one is a little bit better done I think.
How they don't play near Miami/us is typical of the morons who run this sh1t show.
Yeah. California makes sense, but Seattle and Chicago? WTF.
No surprises here.
And where is Garay?
I was wondering the same thing, is he injured?
Makes sense to keep Dybala for the Olympics hopefully he can be the star turn at that event.
For those that missed the final list....
So it appears Dybala and Correa have been saved for the Olympics... I'm kinda looking forward more to that tournament to be honest, just to start seeing new faces.
Vangioni and Pinola both forced out of the list due to last minute injuries. Sucks for them, specially Pinola who had been in great form for a long time now.
Victor Cuesta, who didn't even feature in the original preliminary list, has been selected to replace Pinola... Kinda surprising that he's going and not Mussachio (who was on the preliminary list) or even Garay. Go figure...
No Zabaleta... it will be our first tournament without him since, what... World Cup 2010? Lets see how the new guys do... One assumes Mercado will be the starter, with Roncaglia as the alternative.
No Demichelis either... it seems the old generation is finaaaalllly starting to die out.
Guzman is a disaster... Romero is no Buffon, but for our sake lets hope he remains healthy because Guzman really is that bad. Still amazing that Barovero and Rulli aren't even considered as one of the 3 keepers while these clowns regularly get called up.... makes you realize the interests there are in football.
VAMOS ARGENTINA CARAJOO!!! La copa es nuestra!
It's incredible that Romero is still our no.1 goalie even though he hasn't been first choice at club level for years.
I am sick to the stomach about Dybala and Correa not getting called up. I know they are probably going to the Olympics, but Copa is a senior tournament.
I was hoping to see Messi-Dybala-Icardi partnership at sometime....looks like we get to see Higuain and Aguero one more tournament.
I hope Higuain brings his Serie A form to this tournament --- Messi will again be the only creative outfit, seemingly.
Icardi deserves a call up, I know he's a dick but it's his footballing ability he should be selected on, not his personality.
It's interesting what the current Napoli manager said he told Higuain before the start of the season. He told him he was lazy and could be so much better. It clearly worked, let's hope he brings that form to the Copa. Vamos Argentina.
He always score for Argentina too you know... he always saved the best prior to the final.
and then the final came, he'll miss a tap in, a volley and a penalty.
But I hope he'll score a bicycle this time from halfway line.
