Barring any last minute surprises this will probably be the starting lineup against Peru.

    im maybe 90% satisfied about this line up, i wish we did somethign about jonas,Schiave, and Heinze, those are the ones i would definetly replace..
    I haven’t seen much about Enzo Perez before, any one have any feed back or thoughts about the guy ?? sorry i dont know much about him.

    I agree with you. I would also add Romero.

    Moving Gutierrez to the right-back position, a position he’s never played in is ridiculous. Why invent a position when it is not necessary?

    Maradona calls up a good defender like Pareja but then leaves him out of the lineup and instead goes with two dunces like Schiavi & Heinze.

    Enzo Perez is a good defensive player that can move up and down the flank but I really would’ve liked to have seen Lucho Gonzalez on the right side of the midfield, he can help with the play buildup and link up with Aimar.

    Oh well, all this said, if Argentina can’t beat a team that is in last place in the WC qualifying standings, then Argentina really does not deserve to be in the World Cup.

    i actually think this is the best team maradona has put out since hes been coach. i’d take enzo perez over gago any day of the week. i’m also so excited to see el pipita in action for the senior team. i rate him as a player much higher than tevez. i hope he can take his quality over to the national team, i know there will be alot of pressure on him in his first game and considering he will be playing in his home stadium. di maria is also a huge step up over datolo (even though he scored) and Aimar in my opinion has ALWAYS been better than Veron for Argentina. So often El Payasito was kept out because Roman was in the team, yet Veron got to start with Roman, which never made sense to me. I would have loved to have seen aimar and riquelme play together in the copa america 2007 and the 206 world cup more than they did, but I’m excited to see him link up with messi, di maria, and higuain
