    I read something recently about Ayala being part of Argentina's 2004 Summer Olympics squad as an "overage player". Is this true? I mean, he was already over 30. Seems a bit old. Can anyone Los Che supporters confirm this?

    I believe the rule on the Olympics is as follows:
    Each team is the country's U-23 team, but they're granted 2 (might be 3?) players that are older than that.

    Ayala was selected to play as one of Arg's "overage" players, but I can't remember if he did or not. Was he injured?
