Well, the mystery did not last very long.
Maradona decided to go with Andujar as the starting GK against Colombia.
Andujar will make his national team debut on Saturday in the midst of a highly important game and critical moment in Argentina’s WC qualifying campaign.
Andujar is without question in outstanding form but is it a good move by Maradona to throw a GK with no national team experience straight into the fire and pressure cooker of WC qualifiers?
Especially, when the GK who has been the starter is not injured and has not shown a loss of form.
This is a move that could seriously backfire.
For Carrizo, he has been relegated to the bench, undeservedly.
Unfortunately for him, he is paying the price for his situation with Lazio.
Let’s hope that Andujar has a great game against Colombia and helps Argentina secure a much needed win.
