The first official squad list without RIQUELME

The RIQUELME situation is dominating the headlines in Argentina, but at the same time MARADONA is working on a preliminary list thinking about the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers at home against Venezuela (28 March) and away to Bolivia (1 April).

With Sergio ROMERO injured, MARADONA has to call up new goalkeepers to become back-ups of out-of-favour Lazio's number 1, Juan Pablo CARRIZO, who is Diego's first choice in that position.

Estudiantes de La Plata's Mariano ANDUJAR and Atlante's (Mexico) Federico VILAR, will be the second and third choice keepers when Diego announces his 26-players list on Friday.

Inter's Nicolás BURDISSO will also be sidelined because of injury and his place in the squad will be covered by up and coming Boca Juniors youngster Juan FORLIN.

To the usual suspects from the domestic league (ANGELERI, PAPA, BATTAGLIA and MONTENEGRO), MARADONA will add the aforementioned ANDUJAR and his team-mate at Estudiantes and former Manchester United star: Juan Sebastián VERON.

From Europe, one of Serie A's topscorers, Diego MILITO (Genoa), should earn a place instead of out-of-form Napoli striker, Germán DENIS.

I just can't wait to see the complete list from Diego. There is a lot of names to be considered though by now, we will have rough idea how his team is going to look like.

I also feel there is positive vibe from the RIQUELME saga. Now I believe the message is clear to all the other players. Diego means serious business when it comes to the National Team. Nobody is going to play the fool with him.

All the ego and personal interest is out at the door, when each of them enters the dressing room.

Diego is after all a World Cup winner and know what it takes to be one. I'm sure he expects the same from his players.

Hello all,
I didnot this type of drama from my beloved team. I like Maradona and same way I like Roman also .He is the rid of Argentina football team .Diego also knew that. ButiRiquelme is somewhat special type of social animal.He lives on his principals and his Ehics and if someone touch it then he would react in his own way . We have seen it from past history. Till now I don't know whome to blame ,after all its our teeth and its our lips . I will keep my finger cross . We dont afford to losse Juan So easily .
Lets hope for the best ..
