Finally, after almost 2 decades (as much as I remember) Argentina seems to be fielding an awesome team. How many years have I waited for this moment? Just to see my favorite team play like champions and not like some second rate team labeled as ‘also favorites’.
Phew! And now I am not worried if Argentina loses in the knockout stages, but I will be heavily DISAPPOINTED if they lose. Ah!
My three stars of the Argentine team:
1) Lionel Messi – the explosive and incredibly talented forward and playmaker for Argentina. What will we do without you, dude?
2) Diego Maradona – the legendary Argentine forward and a demi-god for soccrer fans and soccer players all over the world. Without your charismatic and eccentric leadership Argentina has but a smaller percentage chance of lifting the Fifa World Cup 2010.
3) Gonzalo Higuain – I never believed it until I saw him drive in the goals in the last two matches. A goal poacher who rarely misses, finds his sweet spot just in time for the Fifa World Cup 2010. I know how valuable it is to have a really good goal scorer in a soccer team. They are the ones who have the natural instinct to help the football find the net. Brilliant!
Special note: Carloz Tevez – This man will do MAGIC along with Messi and have the potential to become the unbeatable duo in Argentine football history.
