Palermo called up for Brasil game

So, we might see Palermo upfront with Messi and Schiavi as one of the center backs against Brasil.

Speechless…………

Diego Maradona llamó a Palermo para jugar ante Brasil

Además convocó a Rodrigo Braña y Rolando Schiavi.

El entrenador del seleccionado argentino, Diego Maradona, convocó esta noche otros tres jugadores del ámbito local: Martín Palermo, Rodrigo Braña y Rolando Schiavi, para los próximos partidos por las eliminatorias mundialistas.

Maradona, antes de los encuentros frente a Brasil y Paraguay, sorprendió con las nuevas convocatorias, porque a los tres jugadores mencionados los pudo haber llamado ayer y no lo hizo.

El DT argentino se había mostrado muy preocupado por las lesiones de varios jugadores importantes para su esquema como Jonás Gutiérrez (Newcastle), Juan Sebastián Verón (Estudiantes) y Sebastián Battaglia (Boca Juniors), con distintas lesiones y molestias.

Apenas finalizada la segunda fecha del Apertura, Maradona había llamado a siete jugadores del medio local. Se trata de Mario Bolatti de Huracán, Juan Sebastián Verón, Sebastián Battaglia, Eduardo Salvio de Lanús y Emiliano Papa, Nicolás Otamendi y Sebastián Domínguez, tres de los cuatro defensores de Vélez.

Argentina enfrentará a Brasil el 5 de septiembre en Rosario y luego viajará a Asunción para medirse el miércoles siguiente con Paraguay. Sus dos rivales en esta doble fecha de Eliminatorias están por encima de la selección en la tabla de posiciones.

    No, it is not.

    I think this call up is a clear reflection of Maradona’s inability to put together a functioning team, a team with an identity.

    I see the call up as a sign of desperation too.

    I can’t believe that Maradona would call up Palermo and not have him in the lineup.

    I think Palermo will play, if not at the start, then at some other time during the game.

    it is a sad day if this man plays over any of Kun, Tevez, Licha, or Milito. Outside of Argentina, he is known for missing 3 penalties in one game. He didn’t cut it at the national team level when he was at his peak, no chance he can perform at that level now.

    He called Palermo and not Crespo? Good God. I wonder if Batistuta is in relatively good shape. He’d be better than Palermo.

  5. Chris says:

    Trust me, i would Take Bati over Palermo any day.. even if he is 40 !
    we all need to face it. there will never be another Striker like Batistuta … sad, but true.. I wish we did, i think in a game like this, its important, all the defenders for Brazil are monsters compared to our little guys up front.

  6. Argentinafan says:

    i think ortega will be called up for the next round of qualifiers. i’m completely serious, and i’m frightened. Maradona is on the powder again, and I’m more sure that Maradona will call el burrito. the man has lost the plot
