Great season for Arg players in Europe!

May 15th, 2000, 14:07
This year many Argentinean players have won Championships or are on the verge of winning Championships. The list is as follows:

League Champion: Lazio-Players: Veron, Almeyda, Simeone & Sensini.

League Champion: Monaco-Player: Gallardo

League Champion: Sporting Lisbon-Players: Duscher, Quiroga, Acosta & Hanuch.

League Champion: We'll know next week, but if Deportivo La Coruna win, then a couple of Argentinean players, Flores & Scaloni would win medals.

With the European Cup Final coming up on May 24th. Argentineans that play for Valencia- Lopez, Pellegrino, González & Fagiani have an opportunity to obtain a winners medal. In the event that Valencia lose and I hope that they don't, then Redondo who as we all know plays for Real Madrid, will obtain his second winners medal in this tournament.

The second leg of the Italian Cup, will soon be disputed Lazio have a slight edge going into the second leg (2-1) Lazio, are on top of the world at the moment, so they are riding on a wave of positive momentum. I see further medals for Veron, Almeyda, Simeone and Sensini. In the event that Lazio lose out in the Italian Cup, then Inter Milan with Zanetti will collect a medal

In Italy Batistuta finished the season with 23 goals (2nd after Shevchenko) and one more than Crespo who finished the season with 22 goals (3rd after Batistuta) None of Batistuta’s goals came from penalties while Shevchenko had at least 4 goals from penalties. If you discount Shevchenko's penalties, Batistuta would have finished the Seria A as top goal scorer!!

Regardeless, Batistuta scored a hat-trick on Sunday and took his total number of goals with Fiorentina in Serie A to 152, one more than the club's great Swedish striker from the 1950s Kurt Hamrin. So, Batistuta broke a record that had been standing unmatched for almost fifty years!! At 31 he is truly an incredible player.

We have a lot to be proud of. Our players have performed at the highest level, and have earned great recognition for their efforts.

So, I would like to congratulate my fellow Argentinos in Europe for a truly tremendous year. Thanks for making us so proud!!

I am sure that next season will also be another successful one for our outstanding players!

Los jugadores Argentinos son todos campeones!

czar, i totally agree with you...we ruled the world this much more success to come for us.

as for the italian scoring race:
sheva 24(8penalties)
batistuta 23
crespo 22(5 penalties)

i am so proud of those 2 that i think they deserve the award more than sheva.

Thanks, Jordanian Guy, I really appreciate your kind comments :) Actually, my Mother is Argentinean, so that makes me half Argentinean. I also lived in Argentina for about 3 years, and I still have a lot of Family there, I try to go back there as often as possible to visit. I speak fluent Spanish, as I grew up with Spanish being spoken in my home.

Are you from Amman? I was in Jordan for a few days about 6 years ago. I really enjoyed your country. I wanted to visit Petra, but I didn't get a chance.

I hope Argentina will continue to progress. As we say in Spanish "ojala" or as you say in Arabic "inchalla".
