Prepping for the World Cup 2010

Nick here again with another quick post about fútbol…

One of my favorite sports blogs did a nice preview of the Argentine team for this year’s World Cup in South Africa.  It strikes me as just a little crazy that Maradona brought up around 70 players for his qualifying games while most other teams are finalizing their lineups.  Is he trying to create an atmosphere of competition within the players or does he simply not know who to go with?  Who knows?  After all, this is Diego Maradona we’re talking about.

Maybe his strategy will work and maybe it won’t.  It is decidedly different from what previous coaches have done, that is for sure.  We’ll just have to wait and see what kind of magic the Selección Argentina can come up with under their enigmatic legend of a coach.
