I'm sure many of you would have read about the Albi-Malaysian gang experience watching the Futsalbiceleste in action live on their previous two occasions here in Malaysia. Plenty of fond memories for all of us. For the record, I saw them defeating Brazil for the first time back in 2003(thanks to one hell of a freak goal)!
Argentina is placed in Group C alongside Ukraine, China, Guatemala and Egypt. Their will open their campaign against China on the 1st October. The following are the full squad list that will travel to Brazil:-
I still remember some of the names very well. Particularly seasoned veteran players such as Carlos SANCHEZ, Javier GUISANDE, Leandro PLANAS & Esteban GONZALEZ (all of whom were in Kuala Lumpur back in 2003). Their experience will be vital to the team especially on SANCHEZ who is playing in his fourth tournament. Then there are the likes of CORAZZA and RESCIA whom will bring youth and energy.
About our chances? Well it's pretty much hard to say as the likes Brazil, Italy and Spain are overwhelming favourites. A place in the semi-final sounds quite realistic and then we'll see how things go. Nevertheless as always at Mundo, our support will go out to them all the way.
