Coach: Henri Michel

Team News:

Suspended: None

Injured: Neither team has any serious injury worries although Argentina's Gabriel Heinze has only just returned from a knee ligament injury sustained in September

Doubtful: None

General:

Argentina must overcome the disappointment of 2002 and coach Jose Pekerman believes it is high time they made up for the lack of a major trophy in well over a decade.

They are at full strength but will keep the talented trio of Lionel Messi, Pablo Aimar and Carlos Tevez on the bench for inclusion later in the match if the attack falters.

Ivory Coast are playing their first match at a World Cup finals and the fixture will bring back worrying memories for Argentina who painfully lost to African opposition in the shape of Cameroon in the opening match of the 1990 World Cup.

Key quotes:

Argentina defender Gabriel Heinze: "Marking (Didier Drogba) is based a lot on the concentration and positioning we have to have... He waits for diagonal balls or lurks behind the back of the central defender furthest from the ball."

Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure: "I believe in this team. We have so much quality. We know we can score at any time. We are not here by accident -- we don't need to be scared. I am not being pretentious but I think we can really do something fantastic at the World Cup."

Key stats:

Argentina have lost one World Cup game against an African team when as title holders they were upset 1-0 by Cameroon in the opening match of the 1990 tournament in Italy. They have since defeated Nigeria twice, in 1994 and 2002.

Although Ivory Coast are playing their first match in a finals, their French coach Henri Michel will be competing at his fourth World Cup having coached France (1986), Cameroon (1994) and Morocco (1998). Only Bora Milutinovic (five countries) has coached more teams at the finals.

Previous World Cup meetings:

None

Next matches:

Argentina v Serbia & Montenegro June 16 Gelsenkirchen

Netherlands v Ivory Coast June 16 Stuttgart

Netherlands v Argentina June 21 Frankfurt

Ivory Coast v Serbia & Montenegro June 21 Munich

Argentina's players feel the pressure ahead of Ivory Coast clash

AFP
June 8, 2006

HERZOGENAURACH, Germany (AFP) - Argentina's players admitted they were trying to soak up the pressure two days before a tough opening World Cup match against the Ivory Coast.

Despite claims that the west African team is potentially the weakest in Group C in only its first World Cup finals, midfielder Javier Mascherano insisted the team had huge respect for their opponents.

"Ivory Coast is a strong opponent physically with good quality players. We're not underestimating them," said Mascherano.


The Corinthians (Brazil) player, who was celebrating his 22nd birthday, predicted a "tough struggle" for control of the midfield. "But I'm sure they also respect Argentina," he added.

Argentina let the media see the tail end of a particularly committed training session for the first time since the sqaud set up its training base at the Adidas headqaurters in the southern town of Herzogenaurach.

"We're really motivated and looking forward to the first match. We're stifling the anxiety with a great group," said Roma defender Leandro Cufre.

"We are figuring out what the team will look like, we all have high hopes and want to be prepared for the first game," said Cufre.

Coach Jose Pekerman has given little hint of his tactics and there were signs from the training session that some slots in the team were still open.

Argentines alive to Kezman threat


By Rex Gowar

HERZOGENAURACH, Germany, June 12 (Reuters) - Serbia & Montenegro striker Mateja Kezman is a moody player but can be extremely dangerous when on form, Argentina's World Cup winger Maxi Rodriguez said on Monday.


The two are club mates at Atletico Madrid, but will be on opposite sides when Argentina face the Serbs in their second Group C match in Gelsenkirchen on Friday.

"He's a fastidious player," Rodriguez said.

"Sometimes his chain comes off," he added referring to Kezman's difficult character.

"But when he's okay you have to be very careful," he told reporters as he looked ahead to the next match following Argentina's 2-1 win over Ivory Coast in their group opener in Hamburg at the weekend.

Argentina and Netherlands lead Group C after the Dutch beat the Serbs 1-0 in Leipzig in their opening match on Sunday.

"Kezman is a born goalscorer, he's got his eye on goal all match," said Argentina's reserve goalkeeper Leo Franco, who also plays for Atletico.

"He tries a shot whenever he's got sight of goal, unlike some players who look for a better angle.

"He's very important to his team."

Reserve centre back Gabriel Milito, who has marked Kezman playing for Real Zaragoza, said: "He has mobility, he's fast, he's a fighter. He fights for every ball, he chases every ball.

"He and (Savo) Milosevic complement each other, they're different types of player," he said, referring to Serbia's two main strikers.

IVORIANS FASTER

The side from the former Yugoslavia will be a quite different hurdle to Ivory Coast in the tournament, the Argentines said.

"They don't have the speed of Ivory Coast, but perhaps they have other virtues," Milito said.

"Serbia need to go for a result and Argentina can take advantage of that."

Rodriguez said: "They are a very organised side in defence but if you score against them they lose their shape and start going up in numbers."

Argentina went two up against Ivory Coast in the first half but were forced on to their back foot in the second, holding on after Didier Drogba pulled one back for the African Nations Cup finalists, who showed they will be no easy prey for the Dutch in Stuttgart on Friday.

Argentina call up Gonzalez for Cambiasso


By Rex Gowar

HERZOGENAURACH, Germany, June 15 (Reuters) - Luis Gonzalez will replace Esteban Cambiasso in the only change to Argentina's side for the World Cup match against Serbia & Montenegro on Friday.

Group C leaders Argentina meet the Serbs in Gelsenkirchen after starting their campaign with a 2-1 win over Ivory Coast in their opening match in Hamburg last Saturday.

Gonzalez, more of a ball-player than the tough-tackling Cambiasso, will give the team extra fluidity in midfield, coach Jose Pekerman told a news conference on Thursday.

"The idea is to have the circulation (of the ball) that will allow us to continue getting up (to the opposition box)," Pekerman said.

Argentina, having taken a 2-0 lead in the first half against Ivory Coast, relinquished the initiative for periods of the second and allowed Didier Drogba to pull one back.

Pekerman denied his thinking was to give Juan Roman Riquelme more freedom, though he said the playmaker was predominantly on the left against Ivory Coast to help contain the attacking runs of Didier Sokora.

"It's not exclusively for Roman. It's important we have equilibrium in all sectors," he said.

"It's not about giving Roman more liberty."

GREAT MATCH

Pekerman expects the Serbs to be tough to beat despite losing 1-0 to Netherlands on Sunday.

"Argentina are ready to play a great match whatever way Serbia play," he said.

"Not only do they have (Mateja) Kezman up front, there's also (Savo) Milosevic and (Nikola) Zigic, whose height can be a deciding factor."

The Serbs could opt for the 2.02-metre Zigic rather than 99-cap skipper Milosevic to provide extra aerial threat.

Argentina team (4-3-1-2):

1-Roberto Abbondanzieri; 21-Nicolas Burdisso, 2-Roberto Ayala, 6-Gabriel Heinze, 3-Juan Pablo Sorin; 22-Luis Gonzalez, 8-Javier Mascherano, 18-Maxi Rodriguez; 10-Juan Roman Riquelme; 7-Javier Saviola, 9-Hernan Crespo

Argentina 6, Serbia-Montenegro 0

By STEPHEN WADE, AP Sports Writer
June 16, 2006

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) -- Two-time champion Argentina is starting to sense something special.

Jubilant cries of "Ole, Ole" and "AR-gen-tina, AR-gen-tina" were deafening Friday in FC Schalke's closed-roof stadium, where Argentina routed Serbia-Montenegro 6-0 -- the most lopsided game so far in the World Cup.

"This was an incredible performance," said midfielder Maxi Rodriguez, who scored two first-half goals. Substitute Esteban Cambiasso added another in the first half, with Hernan Crespo and youngsters Carlos Tevez and Lionel Messi finishing it off late in the game when Serbia was a man short.

Argentina, which opened the World Cup with a 2-1 victory over Ivory Coast, reached the round of 16 with the victory and the Netherlands' 2-1 win against the Ivorians. The Argentines play the Dutch on Wednesday for first place in the Group C.

The loss eliminated the Serbs.

Diego Maradona brought Argentina its last World Cup title in 1986. Now Argentina's chief cheerleader, Maradona was on his feet Friday, swirling the sky-blue and white Argentine jersey above his head and chiming in as one chant was screamed over and over:

"We're going to leave as champions, just like in '86."

Sure, Serbia was undermanned -- key defender Nemanja Vidic was out with a knee injury -- and the team was short-handed the last 25 minutes after Mateja Kezman was sent off. And there was open feuding on the club. Still, this is a team that gave up only one goal in 10 World Cup qualifiers and finished ahead of Spain in its group.

"It's shocking," Serbia-Montenegro coach Ilija Petkovic said of the loss, the worst for the Balkan nation since the former Yugoslavia fell 6-1 to Uruguay in the semifinals of the first World Cup in 1930.

Argentina didn't just score goals Friday, it created several masterpieces.

"When everyone does it together, it's like that," Tevez said.

Tevez, only 22 and a coming star with the 18-year-old Messi, praised the teamwork -- the deft passes and perfectly timed shots. With only four players back from the 2002 team -- humiliated in a first-round ouster -- this side is young and a pure product of coach Jose Pekerman.

Seventeen of the 23-man team played for Pekerman when he coached Argentina to three World Youth championships: 1995, '97 and 2001.

Pekerman, a 56-year-old who looks and talks like a college professor, seemed intentionally low-key.

"We can't take this game as the final measure," he said.

Argentina got a perfect start with Rodriguez scoring in the sixth minute. He finished off his shot at the end of perfect passes down the left side from captain Juan Pablo Sorin and Javier Saviola.

Argentina made it 2-0 in the 31st, a classic goal by Cambiasso, who entered in the 17th minute for injured Luis Gonzalez. Argentina held possession with a string of two dozen passes. At the finish, Saviola found Cambiasso, who passed to Hernan Crespo, who back-heeled the ball for Cambiasso's left-footed finish.

"It couldn't have gone any better," Cambiasso said. "The moment I came in, one of the first balls I touch is a goal.

"We're really working well as a group," he added. "This team is solid and we are very confident. We know we haven't achieved anything yet. We have to stay relaxed on the path we want to take, because it's a long road and it's hardly just begun."

Rodriguez's second involved more grit than guile.

Saviola stole the ball in the right corner, then took a shot breaking for the net. Serb keeper Dragoslav Jevric made a sprawling save. The ball rebounded off the goalpost to his right, with Rodriguez slipping the shot home in the 41st.

To celebrate, he did a flying somersault.

With Serbia down to 10 men after Kezman was sent off in the 65th for a harsh tackle on Javier Mascherano, Crespo broke through in the 78th off a pass from Messi. It was the 18-year-old Messi's first action of the tournament and he punctuated it with the final goal in the 88th.

Tevez scored in the 84th, curling the ball into a wide open net as the Serb defense remained leaky.

On a clear, sunny day, the game was played under a closed roof at FC Schalke's stadium -- a move to give TV a shadow-free field.

Maradona fined for speeding on German autobahn :dielaugh:


ARNSBERG, Germany (AP) -- Diego Maradona was fined for speeding on an autobahn after police clocked him going 37 mph above the legal limit.

The Argentine star, who led his team to the 1986 World Cup title, failed to slow his Volkswagen van on Thursday in an area where road work was underway and special speed limit signs were in place, police said Saturday. Normally, people can drive as fast as they want on Germany's autobahns. Police said he was driving 87 mph in a 50 mph zone.

"He paid his $120 and the matter was taken care of, like it happens a million times a day," said Guenter Noll, coordinator for the autobahn police in Arnsberg.

Maradona was pulled over by police near Gelsenkirchen, the day before Argentina beat Serbia-Montenegro 6-0 there.

Maradona's energetic dancing and cheering in the stands has proved a magnet for television cameras during his country's wins against Ivory Coast and Serbia-Montenegro.
