Argentina's World Cup 2010 Squad

Maradona declared that it has been six years since he last took drugs. It's a relieve!

However, after he announced the World Cup squad, many were left wondering whether he is still on drugs. There is no Riquelme, it's understandable since the friction between Maradona and Riquelme are well documented but he seems to have forgotten the likes of Cambiasso and Zanetti who are having great season with Inter.

Cambiasso wasn’t quite a surprise as Maradona still hasn’t called him up, for some odd reason, despite being one of the best central midfielder but the snub on Zanetti is unacceptable. This indicates "The Great Maradona Circus" has begun earlier than expected. At least he remembered Messi and Veron.

Does the "Hand of God" has what it takes to deliver the "Holy Grail"?
