    ARGENTINA 2014

    Even though the Argentine team crashed out in the Quarter Finals, a young side with an abundance of attacking talent has every reason to feel confident going into the first South American World Cup since 1978 - where the Albiceleste came out on top on home soil.

    Current coach Diego Maradona is still umming and aahing his position with the same spectacle and media-friendly soundbites with which he has conducted his entire reign. Whoever is in charge come 2014, however, will find the most pressing worries come in defence - positively calamitous against Germany, there will be more questions posed with the unavailability of Walter Samuel, Gabriel Heinze and Javier Zanetti. The rest of the team will have a rather familiar look to it:

    Goalkeeper Sergio Romero did nothing to disgrace himself in South Africa, and at only 27 next time around will have more bigtime experience under his belt. A possible contender could be Independiente's Adrian Gabbarini, who had a great season for the Rojo and is an interesting prospect.

    Cristian Ansaldi, Clemente Rodriguez and Emiliano Insua are all possibilities to fill the problem full-back slots, which were never really resolved in this World Cup. In the centre, expect a savvier and more streetwise Nicolas Otamendi to become a defensive titan, while Martin Demichelis and Nicolas Burdisso will still be on the scene. Keep an eye out for Boca's Matias Caruzzo, who will be 29 in 2014 and was immense for Clausura winners Argentinos Juniors.

    In midfield, if Argentina decide to abandon Dieguitos 'Ataquen ataquen ataquen' mentality and adopt the 4-2-3-1 setup of Spain and Holland, they have two ready made pivot men in Javier Mascherano and Mario Bolatti, who will be 30 and 29 respectively. This will leave Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Javier Pastore and Lanus talent Sebastian Blanco to fill the 'Lionel Messi plus two more' space in front.

    Up front, Diego Milito will be gone, Gonzalo Higuain will need to prove that he can score goals in the real crunch international games after disappearing against the Germans. The Real Madrid man is still a baby and has plenty of time to prove himself as real world-class; the likes of Ezequiel Lavezzi, Franco Jara, Lisandro Lopez and young Racing man Gabriel Hauche will be more than willing to step in should Pipita fall by the wayside.


    (4-2-3-1)


    Romero (27)

    Otamendi (26) - Caruzzo (27) - Burdisso (33) - Ansaldi (27)

    Mascherano (30) - Bolatti (25)

    Messi (26) - Pastore (25) - Tevez (30)

    Higuain (26)


    Substitutes: Gabbarini (28 ) , Demichelis (33), Insua (25), Blanco (26), Di Maria (26), Aguero (26), Lavezzi (29)

    OFFICIAL:

    Argentine Football Federation Will Not Renew Diego Maradona's Contract

    The AFA have confirmed that Diego Maradona will not continue as Argentina's head coach, in a short statement released on their website.

    "The AFA President, Julio Grondona, informed the members of the executive committee about his conversations with Diego Maradona, exposing the important points of the meeting", the communique released on Tuesday evening begins.

    "The executive committee fully and unanimously resolved not to renew the contract of Diego Maradona as head coach of the Argentina national team."

    Maradona, 49, took charge of the Albiceleste in late 2008. After a bright start his charges lost 6-1 in a farcical match in La Paz, but qualified for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa thanks to a late win over Peru in terrible conditions in Buenos Aires and another last-gasp victory in Montevideo against Uruguay.

    Diego's World Cup campaign was ultimately to end in misery: three wins from three in a weak Group B was the least that was expected of Argentina; a win over Mexico in the Round of 16 was very much welcome, but a 4-0 demolition by Germany in the following stage saw to it that Diego returned home to an uncertain future, even though fans seemed to still be on his side.

    The footballing authorities, however, opted not to retain the services of the former Napoli star, and his brief tenure in international management thus comes to an end.

    Maradona made it clear that he will continue only if the backroom staff's are also retained. AFA s not ready for that and that paved the way. Marcelo Bielsa will be a good choice I think.

    Tevez hits out at AFA

    Argentina striker critical of Maradona handling

    Carlos Tevez has accused the president of the Argentine Football Association of breaking his word by sacking Diego Maradona.
    Maradona left his role as manager of the national team in late July, following weeks of speculation about his future after the World Cup.
    Argentina had impressed in the early stages of the tournament in South Africa before being thrashed 4-0 by Germany in the quarter-finals.
    They are now preparing for life without Maradona, starting with a friendly against Republic of Ireland on Wednesday when Sergio Batista will be in temporary charge.
    But Tevez has criticised AFA president Julio Grondona, saying Maradona had been told his job was safe after the defeat to Germany.
    Lacking

    "Mr Grondona said Maradona could do what he liked (after the World Cup)," Tevez told TyC Sports as he joined the squad in Dublin.
    "In the changing room (after Argentina's elimination) Don Julio told Diego he would continue (as coach).
    "If (Grondona) holds a meeting and I can say it to him face to face, I'll do it.
    "There's a lot lacking in the AFA's word ... I say what I think and feel, I don't care if for the next match I'm in the national team or not."
