An overview of Argentina

Let’s take a look at the attacking players that Argentina coach Diego Maradona has at his disposal.

Best player in the world, Lionel Messi.
Champions League final game-winner, Diego Milito.
$70M Man City star Carlos Tevez. Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higain who scored 29 goals this season. Finally there’s Maradona’ son-in-law and Europa League winner with Atletico Madrid, Sergio Aguero.

Astonishing, isn’t it? So how come this team struggled to qualify for South Africa, only securing the South American section’s fourth spot and getting thrashed 6-1 by one of the continent’s worst teams, Bolivia?

The answer probably lies in the coach. Maradona is one of the greatest footballers of all time, but has little coaching experience.

He doesn’t even seem suited to being a coach. As a player he was a free spirit, a maverick, a pint-sized package of passion and pure skill; all the things that most of the world’s great coaches are not.

Under Maradona, Argentina is disjointed, defensively weak, and totally relying on their stars to deliver.
