Maradona – Madman or Mastermind?

The 23 man squad is named and after great anticipation Diego Milito is in, as is Martin Palermo. This may surprise a few football observers around the globe but after all nothing has been less than surprising about Maradona’s road to South Africa 2010.

6 attackers have been named and most countries would salivate at the luxury of options Maradona has going forward. Only time will tell if he is simply a lunatic or a genius coach in the making.

There’s been many questions over Maradona leaving out Cambiaso and Javier Zanetti. If defies the logic when form is concerned, although Cambiaso's form has been near perfect for Inter but he was not included due Argentina's rich of talent in midfield.

Zanetti though, poses a completely different scenario. This is a player whose lack of inclusion simply baffles evryone as it is at the back that Argentina look most vulnerable.

Although a solid clean sheet against the Germans away a couple of months ago suggests that they have a plan, contrary to popular belief the Argentinians are beginning to look organized and have great team spirit.

The World Cup is built around characters like Maradona and hopefully Messi will rise to the occasion and become even a greater charecter than Maradonas's 1986.

After hitting a journalist accidentally this week in his car and calling him an arsehole (pretty standard)… Its Maradona the Madman Mastermind (and to achieve great things you need a bit of both) that has a squad assembled and is ready to unleash upon the world, starting with Nigeria June 12.

Buena Suerte Argentina!
