I can't recall the last time Mexico did anything worth mentioning when playing against Argentina in their 'other' home. One thing's for sure -- I already have my ticket.

It seems that Pekerman will use alot of the U-20 NT players like Ustari, Zabaleta Diaz and Garay. He might also call Ledesema and Lisandro Lopez, also Mascherano and Lucho will be back, Farias and Cardozo might be called up too.

It was obvious that Peckerman would add to his first list. Great chance for Lux to show his skill and continue his good (scoreless) streak with the national team.

Lucho and Mascherano are obvious choices. Both of them could very well start on the 'A' if they're given the chance.

probable line up:

-------------LUX
----------Diaz--XXX
--romero-------------zapata
------------masche
--lucho---------------belluschi
-------------Insua
----Roly Zarate-----Palacio

Not a bad team at all, even though i dont like the defense and Insua as the playmaker.

I heard that Pekerman's idea is to play the next match of the qualy in La Paz (Bolivia) with a team of players based in Argentina, only.
For the following match in Bs As against Colombia (if my memory serves me well) he will use the foreign legion.

I will like to see Sosa as playmaker, and better can be a Lisandro, Palacio fowards duo, is not orthodox two support strikers, but thei are really young and promising to see if they can have a real chance.
I hope no: Castroman, Zapata, runners without brain, and no useless Crosa, Tuzzio, not for their quality, because of their age, and lack of caps, this match should nbe a TOTAL test for younger players...
I heard Lucho is not going to be allowed...
