Sounds ok, but I hear that we didn't play too well. The match was divided in two 40 minute intervals. Crespo started as our CF but the match was 1-0 at halftime with Pochettino scoring for us in the 4th minute. Bati started the second half and smashed in 4 goals!! Gustavo Lopez played well and assisted on all of Bati's goals. We have 10 days until our debut so I'm confident we'll sort out whatever we need to improve on.

We play two more friendlies against Japanese opposition next Tuesday.

Match synthesis is as follows.

Kashima Antlers: Takashi; Narahashi, Ikechi, Fabiano, Augusto; Kumagai, Honda, Aoki; Nozawa; Motoyama e Hirase.
Suplentes: Kato, Shuto, Ushida, Ishikawa, Otani, Hasegawa, Nakamura, Fujita, Ichimura.
DT: Toninho Cerezo.

Argentina: Pablo Cavallero; Mauricio Pochettino, Roberto Ayala, Walter Samuel; Javier Zanetti, Cristian González; Juan Sebastián Verón; Ariel ortega, Hernán Crespo y Claudio López.
Suplentes: Germán Burgos, Roberto Bonano, José Chamot, Diego Placente, Claudio Husain, Juan Pablo Sorin, Pablo Aimar, Gustavo López y Gabriel Batistuta.
DT: Marcelo Bielsa.

Goles: PT 4m Pochettino (A). ST 1m Nozawa (K) y 4m, 15m, 37m y 38m Batistuta (A).

Cambios: ST Burgos X Cavallero (A), Chamot X Pochettino (A), Placente X Samuel (A), Husain X Zanetti (A), Sorin X Claudio López (A), Aimar X Verón (A), Gustavo López X Ortega (A) y Batistuta X Crespo (A). Ushida X Honda (K) y Hasegawa X Motoyama (K).

I believe Bielsa can tell now, who the mots in form striker is...IMHO Batistuta is winning the race with Crespo, even tough both are great, Bati should be the starter..

BTW, after the match, a lot of comparisons were made of Veron to Cerezo (Antlers coach). Thats not a bad comparison. Cerezo was a magnificent midfielder, perhaps the best Brazil ever had. Recall 78 although 82 he screwed up bad on an errant pass picked off by Rossi who then scores.

I hope Bati's 4 goals will put as the starter in our WC matches.
BTW, G.Lopez replaced Ortega in the right, so maybe he will not have the chance to play in that role when Cani will be ready and fit to play.

I think bati was pissed because he was a sub, so he came out on fire and with lots of anger , therefore his four goals...

Maybe we should continue to bench him until the 2nd half so he can score a few more of those goals in the WC:D ;)

yes yes bati hits four ....... very good goals

ahahahahhaa, good news, bati scores four goals where crespo had given chances to play, he could not even score a single goal, Now i am not affraid of bati anymore, Bati play in second half or as a starter because in either way bati will scores goals a lot of goals, but crespo will never even score just like last world cup. bati bring argentina the world cup hopes

I think Crespo is not having a very good time right now, maybe it should be the other way around, with Crespo coming on in the second half, and scoring goals, like the first game with Colombia back in 2000.

It seems that Bielsa still dont know who will be our 1st choice GK and the striker.
