What a great shot, would love to have a jumbo poster of this on my wall. Will definitely have to get me a 2010 world cup shirt to go with my 2006 shirt. Will support you all the way Argentina. You bring great joy to my life.

Sebastian said...

Victor...you said 'Asian TEVEZ'??

What about Kun? Or better...what about GARCE??? Who is nicknamed 'Chino' (Chinese, or Chinaman) for a reason!

No wonder the Albiceleste are so big in Asia!

What do our Asian readers think of this?

Thang Nguyen Cong said...

Hey guys, why did Bilardo is not in the picture ?

Allan said...

I don't find anyone of them Chinese/Asian looking at all... Even Uruguay's Alvaro Recoba did not really look Chinese to me.

But I did notice Messi looks like Christian Bale (Batman).

voili said...

Beautiful photo!

salvio supporter said...

Bilardo isn't there for the same reason Grondona isn't.

GK said...

There was an article in a Cadadian newspaper yesterday (The Toronto Sun), titles "Maradona hoping for dream summer".

It is a very short piece and basically explains why Garce is on the 23 man roster. Here is an piece of the article....

Garce's surprise selection to the team came as a result of a dream where Maradona's team was lifting the World Cup but the only face he could remember was Garce's.

Interesting.

salvio supporter said...

GK > that rumour is circulating here in Argentina too. It wouldn't surprise me if it were true... but at least, it's the least dramatic reason why Maradona would call Garcé up (considering "some other things" that are usually said about el Chino).

I have replaced my laptop "wallpaper".
Instead of Palermo celebrating his goal against Peru I have the NT. Great pic. I hope this holds me in good stead with the Palermo haters.

Another bit of info: Michael ESSIEN (Ghana) is out of the World Cup.

What a terrible piece of news this.

I can't think of another player that is more instrumental for a team's chances than ESSIEN right now.

I think in a way, he is more important to Ghana than MESSI to Argentina. If you know what I mean.

I would rather have MESSI on my team, but I think ESSIEN is irreplaceable for Ghana and we've got so many options up front...

Personally, I'm gutted. I like African teams and this is a huge blow for one of them.

Sebastian said...

I can talk to you again then Johnny! hahaha!

Anonymous said...

well, if Michael ESSIEN is out of the wc, germany will be happy. which makes me unhappy. however i would prefer ghana rather than nigeria. nigeria is huge, i can't belive they don't have quality players.

This is our year!!! Vamos Vamos

Mohd said...

well, our friend crespo has some ideas...i think sadly he's right:

http://www.goal.com/en/news/1863/world-cup-2010/2010/05/27/1945659/world-cup-2010-argentina-coach-diego-maradona-will-keep

hastaelgolsiempre said...

I think Wayne Rooney's a lot more central to England's chances than Lionel Messi is to Argentina's, Seba (fortunately for us, Fabio Capello is as central to ours as Diego Maradona is to Argentina's...).

I love how, in both of these photos, there are one of two differences but Seba Verón's grin is identical. It's almost as if the only purpose of growing that beard has been to frame his teeth in this photograph.
