Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Plus, I hear Tevez has become quite attached to the bench.

Tevez has been pants for Argentina, did you watch Argentina at the World Cup, or even the build up to the World Cup? Higuain is pretty much the only Argentinian striker with a decent goal scoring record. He is also in superb form at the moment, he got 3 hat-tricks in 4 games, and he & Messi completely destroyed Chile. In terms of ability, Tevez is probably the fourth best Argentinian striker after Messi, Higuain, and Aguero - but then you've got to consider the way they play, 1 striker and 2 wingers, 2 strikers with Messi behind them (what they did at the World Cup), or just 3 strikers? I'd go with the first - Messi is capable of playing on the right wing, Lavezzi is the best left winger in Argentina, and then it's between Higuain and Aguero as to who plays in the middle. Crazy that Tevez is their 4th best striker, yet is easily a top 10 striker in the world, but Argentina still suck.

I’m from the school of thought that believes you should fix something when it’s broken. If a team is playing ass, I don’t care about the one player that stands out. All Higuain can do is tap the ball in. Messi, Tevez and Aguero form a front line that can pop up all over the field. I’m not looking for a goal sneak, I’m looking for a high work rate. Argentina should be dominating possession against all opposition. Higuain isn’t nearly half as good on the ball as Tevez. You want to talk about goal scoring records? Pick Crouch ahead of Rooney whenever you name your team. You won’t? Well, it’s the same for Higuain. Tevez is easily a top 10 player in the world (not just a striker), on his day.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

In the Argentina & Real team it works to have Higuain the centre piece of a forward three as finishing is his main attribute. When he's got Ronaldo & Messi feeding him, it's not exactly difficult to score goals especially in La Liga with Real. There's no way in hell Higuain could've done what Tevez did for City last season, carrying the entire team and winning games pretty much all by himself.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Romero

Zabaleta - Mascherano - Burdisso - Zanetti

Banega - Cambiasso

Pastore

Messi - Higuain - Di Maria


That'd be my Argentina team.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Mascherano at centre back? It might work at Barca but never at major tournaments for Argentina.
