It’s all kicking off this week and not just with AFA president Grondona calling the English “pirates” and offering us a FIFA vote in return for the Falkalands!
There’s internationals all over the gaff; friendlies versus Nigeria and Poland, but not the first choice Argentine squad. It’s the ‘B’ squad of European-based players who (bar a few exceptions) won’t be playing in the Copa America (squad list released yesterday) and are largely under 25.
I will be doing a piece on the upcoming friendlies soon so won’t go into the ‘B’ team now but here’s your Copa squad. Otamendi is out through injury and major story here is that Tevez and Aguero have patched up differences with Checho, and will now be going to the Copa.
