Lionel MESSI, Juan Sebastian VERON, Javier MASCHEREANO, Javier ZANETTI, Gabriel HEINZE, Fernando GAGO and Emiliano PAPA are all on yellow cards. One more yellow card means they will be suspended for the Peru game on October 11 in Argentina. Maxi RODRIGUEZ is also on a yellow card but as more and more news comes out, it's clear he will not take part in the match against Paraguay.
It seems pretty much all but certain that Diego MARADONA will give Sergio ROMERO his first International Cap on Wednesday night. For those of you who are not familiar with ROMERO, here's the quick rundown. The former Racing Club and now AZ Alkmaar(the Netherlands) goalkeeper has won 2 titles in junior level. The first one came in 2007 when Argentina won the U-20 World Cup in Canada. The second title came a year later at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing where he was the back-up goalkeeper to Oscar USTARI. However during the Quarter Finals against the Netherlands, USTARI suffered an injury and ROMERO came in to replace him. He finished the tournament playing 2 crucial matches, the first one against Brazil in the Semi-Finals and the second against Nigeria in the Final itself. He made crucial saves and at 22 is already an established goalkeeper with AZ Alkmaar.
In the 2008-2009 season, ROMERO played a huge part in AZ Alkmaar's first Dutch League title in over 25 years. During the course of the season, ROMERO had a stretch of 11 consecutive clean sheet matches. He has been called-up several times for Argentina, but if he starts(and all signs point that he will), then this will be his first International Cap.
On a quick personal note, I've loved ROMERO ever since I first saw him at the U-20 World Cup and was happy to see him at the Olympics. Oh and the kid has a knack at saving penalties.
Here's a video of ROMERO in the 2008-2009 Season.
