Maradona Writes off super eagles

Published

ARGENTINE soccer legend, Diego Armando Maradona has written off Nigeria
and other group opponents and tipped Albiceleste to defeat the Super
Eagles in their Group F match on June 25 in Porto allegre and go on to
win the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Argentina, Nigeria,
Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran have been drawn in Group F, with the Lionel
Messi-captained side hugely tipped to secure the top spot in what
observers see as a relatively easy group, when compared with others.

In
their three previous confrontations with Argentina at the World Cup,
the Eagles ended on the losing side and despite a resurgence in the
attacking play of the African champions, Maradona, insisted that the
current South American giants have enough firepower to see off all their
prospective opponents in Brazil.

Speaking in an interview with
TyC Sports in Argentina, Maradona said “I do not see any team in group F
beating us. We are too strong for them. We are going to win our third
World Cup. It is going to happen again in Brazil. Argentina will be
champions of the world, but they are going to have to fight against the
‘morochos’ [Brazil]. They are very tough.. The success of 1986 will be
repeated and it will be in Brazil.”

Taking a look at the other
top teams that can give Argentina a good run for their money, Maradona
said “Germany and Holland are in good shape, Italy not so much and Spain
are getting bored of their own tactics. They go forward and forward,
but cannot convert.”

Meanwhile, in order to get the team in top
shape for the World Cup, football officials in Argentina confirmed last
night that Argentina will play a friendly match against Slovenia on June
1, which is expected to be the team’s last match before their first
Group match against Bosnia-Herze
govina.
