The starting eleven against Brasil – UPDATE

The second practice session was held today and Maradona had the following lineup on the field:

Mariano Andújar

Javier Zanetti
Nicolás Otamendi
Sebastián Domínguez
Gabriel Heinze

Maxi Rodríguez
Javier Mascherano
Juan Sebastián Verón
Jesus Dátolo

Lionel Messi
Carlos Tevez

Maradona did not confirm the starting lineup for the game but there’s very little time left.

Interesting that Maradona might go with Velez’s starting center backs.

At this point and with what’s available, that might be the best option. They are both outstanding players and know each other well.

Tevez might be, afterall, in the starting lineup. I don’t think he has done much to earn that spot.

    Messi and Tevez alone in front. I’m sorry, but two munchkins won’t work.

    Well, I think that Messi needs to be in the lineup because he is the only Argentina player that can create something out of nothing and win a game with a magical play. With Messi that possibility is always there.

    But I do agree with you about Tevez.

    I think Argentina would benefit more by having a center forward that can battle it out with Brasil’s center backs and give Messi space to make his runs.
