FIFA World Cup Qualifying: Venezuela 3 Peru 2

https://www.youtube.com/…lh8lI-NzcWQ

Venezuela have kept alive their slim hopes of progressing to the World Cup finals in Brazil, with a 3-2 win over Peru.

Uruguay´s 2-0 win over Colombia meant the hosts at Puerto la Cruz needed to win their final two games to be any chance of sneaking into the South America qualifying play-off spot.

And things went even more awry early when Peru took a lead against the run of play, when Paolo Hurtado completed a fine run with a powerful strike from the right past the on-rushing Venezuela goalkeeper Daniel Hernandez on 20 minutes.

But the home side responded well, taking control of the contest at least in general play and creating numerous chances before Salomon Rondon converted with a sharp right-foot stab past Peru keeper Raul Fernandez eight minutes before half-time.

The goal dashed Peru´s hopes of keeping a clean sheet, although that was already looking unlikely, after Fernandez had earlier tried to clear a ball by punching, only for the ball to go backwards and only just fly over the crossbar.

The sides were level at the interval but it was all Venezuela from there onwards with Yohandry Orozco forcing a save out of Fernandez in the 46th minute to signal the hosts´ intentions.

A 62nd-minute penalty then shattered Peru´s hopes of a comeback, as Cesar Gonzalez confidently stepped up with a well-taken spot kick to put Venezuela ahead. Carlos Zambrano had conceded the penalty when he handballed in the area.

Romulo Otero then wrapped up the three points with a delightful low strike from the edge of the area, with the right-foot shot to the bottom right corner needing to be inch perfect to beat a diving Fernandez.

It was deserved reward for Venezuela, who looked the only team likely to score after the two sides emerged from the dressing rooms.

Zambrano tried to atone for conceding the spot kick, when he pulled a goal back in the shadows of the final whistle but it would not be enough to salvage a point for Peru.

The win leaves Venezuela three points behind Uruguay, who have a game in hand.

The former would need to win their final fixture against Paraguay and hope the Uruguayans lose to both Ecuador and Argentina, all the while making up a differential of six goals.

Peru´s qualifying hopes were slim prior to kickoff and the loss extinguished any chance they could reach fifth place, ensuring their Brazil dream is officially over.

FIFA World Cup Qualifying: Paraguay 2 Argentina 5

https://www.youtube.com/…hPMrzm-uAWQ

Argentina have booked a place at the 2014 World Cup after a 5-2 win over Paraguay in Asuncion on Tuesday.

Alejandro Sabella´s men were the dominant side at Estadio Defensores del Chaco, winning thanks to a brace of Lionel Messi penalties, plus goals from Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and Maxi Rodriguez.

Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero´s howler gifted an equaliser to Paraguay in the first half through Jose Nunez but Di Maria and Messi put the result beyond doubt shortly after the break as their side stayed top of CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.

Roque Santa Cruz scored a late consolation goal for Paraguay, who cannot qualify for the World Cup.

Now seven points clear of fifth-placed Uruguay with two games remaining, Argentina join hosts Brazil as the two South American teams with a place booked at the 2014 tournament.

Argentina struck first on 12 minutes after a fast counter-attack led to Paraguay being exposed on the break.

It was a three-on-one break and Di Maria´s pass found Aguero at the back post, with the Manchester City forward brought down by the advancing Roberto Fernandez.

Messi stepped up and placed his penalty into the bottom corner as Fernandez dived the wrong way, giving him his 36th goal for Argentina.

The goal sent the Barcelona star into clear second on the all-time leading goalscorers list for his country, ahead of Hernan Crespo (35) but still some way behind Gabriel Batistuta (56).

Argentina´s lead only lasted five minutes before a howler from Romero gifted Paraguay their equaliser.

Nunez flicked Miguel Samudio´s cross goal-ward and Romero should have dealt with the effort but it bounced over the diving goalkeeper and into the net.

Argentina should have restored their lead three minutes later, but – with an open goal to aim at – Inter striker Rodrigo Palacio put his header wide from close range.

Paraguay captain Santa Cruz was denied by Romero on the half-hour mark, with the goalkeeper tipping the Malaga striker´s header over.

It was the combination between Messi and Aguero which led to the latter giving Argentina a 2-1 lead, just moments after another nervy moment by Romero when he dropped a cross.

Messi cushioned down a pass with his chest for Aguero, who took a touch before firing into the bottom corner with his left foot.

Argentina were being given far too much space in the attacking third and Messi had two strikes at goal saved by Fernandez before half-time.

Aguero thought he had given Argentina a two-goal lead on the stroke of half-time but he was correctly ruled offside.

If Paraguay held some hope heading into the second half, it was dashed inside eight minutes after the break.

Di Maria netted in a one-on-one with Fernandez after a lovely Fernando Gago pass before Messi scored from the penalty spot again.

It was a soft penalty awarded against Salustiano Candia for a foul on Messi but came after Paraguay were again left exposed and outnumbered at the back.

Messi chose the other way with his penalty – shooting to Fernandez´s left – but the Cerro Porteno goalkeeper was still unable to keep it out as the 26-year-old scored his 10th goal of the qualifying campaign.

Di Maria was denied a second when he had a shot cleared off the line by Oscar Romero after exchanging passes with Messi on the hour-mark.

Romero kept out Nunez with a fine save as the tempo slowed but there was still time for Paraguay to score a consolation goal through Santa Cruz, who tapped in Samudio´s cross in the 86th minute, while Rodriguez capped off the rout for Argentina when he scored four minutes later.

International Friendly: Brazil 3 Portugal 1


http://www.youtube.com/w…HdAexrh_px4

Barcelona forward Neymar has starred for Brazil in their 3-1 friendly win over Portugal in Massachusetts on Tuesday.

The former Santos man scored once and provided an assist, while also having a hand in Brazil´s third goal, as the upcoming World Cup hosts recovered from a shock early concession.

Raul Meireles, who had hit the woodwork six minutes earlier with a header, put Portugal in front in the 18th minute at Gillette Stadium, after making the most of a defensive howler from Maicon.

The Roma right back was attempting to send the ball back to his goalkeeper Julio Cesar via his head, but Fenerbahce midfielder Meireles was quick to realise the opportunity - with the former Chelsea man intercepting with a touch, before tucking away the opener past the helpless Brazilian gloveman.

But Neymar came to the rescue, putting in the corner that found the forehead of Thiago Silva, before dribbling into the box and tucking away into the left-hand corner of the net to put the South Americans in front at half-time.

Just four minutes after the break, Neymar put through left back Maxwell, who crossed for Jo, who scored his third goal of the week after a brace against Australia.

It was very crisp passing from the Brazilians, who were putting on a clinic for the American fans, and Jo was handed another international goal on a platter after Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio was drawn off his line.

Meanwhile, all of Portugal´s chances were being blown by winger Nani, who struck two free-kicks well over the crossbar, and had another two audacious shots from range that were not close to bothering Cesar.

The result saw Brazil stay unbeaten in their past three clashes with Portugal, winning the two friendlies, while the other result was a 0-0 draw at the 2010 World Cup.

CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Wrap: USA and Costa Rica qualify

Honduras were pegged back late to a 2-2 draw with Panama but the result was enough to see the USA and Costa Rica qualify for Brazil 2014.

Anything but a Panama victory would have seen both the Americans and Costa Ricans advance to next year´s World Cup finals, and despite a late equaliser from Panamanian Roberto Chen in Tegucigalpa, the Hondurans held on for a point.

The draw did cost Honduras the chance of virtually sealing their own place at Brazil, while Panama kept theirs alive, as they remain three points behind third-placed Honduras.

The top three teams in the six-nation group qualify automatically, while fourth - Panama as it stands - go to the intercontinental play-off versus New Zealand.

Honduras paid the price for failing to hold onto a lead on two separate occasions on Tuesday, after Carlos Costly put them ahead on 28 minutes.

They lead by that goal at the interval, only for Gabriel Torres to equalise on 50 minutes for the visitors.

Wilson Palacios restored Honduras´ lead 11 minutes later and they held that buffer into injury time.

But the hearty Panamanians rained on the parade, as Chen earned them a point in the second minute of additional time.

The result sealed a spot in Brazil for the USA, who earlier defeated Mexico 2-0.

Eddie Johnson and Landon Donovan were both on target in Columbus, as the Americans climbed top of the qualifying group over the Costa Ricans.

Mexico remain fifth on eight points, level - even on goal difference - with Panama in the race for the play-off spot.

Costa Rica were kept to a 1-1 draw away at Jamaica´s Independence Park with the hosts earning just their fourth point in eight qualifying games.

The Costa Ricans were on target for victory but an injury-time equaliser from Jermaine Anderson gave the Caribbean nation something to savour.

Five things we learned from South American qualifiers

Posted by Tim Vickery

1 -- ARGENTINA KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING

The first team from the continent to book their place in Brazil, Argentina´s qualification might seem predictable enough - but it looked anything but in the early stages of the campaign, when coach Alejandro Sabella´s side lost to Venezuela and drew at home to Bolivia.

Since then, though, the side have made enormous progress. They are not perfect. Sabella is aware that there is a price to pay for fielding two strikers plus Lionel Messi, and Angel di Maria as part of a midfield trio; it means that the team can be very vulnerable down the flanks, a weakness that was exposed in Tuesday´s hour of triumph, the 5-2 win away to Paraguay which sealed qualification with two rounds still to play.

The positive side of the equation, though, is that the team have powerful and exciting attacking firepower. Their rapid counter attacks were too much for a bewildered Paraguay defence. Di Maria´s capacity to surge from deep makes him ideal for this type of game, and, crucially, Messi is housed in a structure which gets the best out of him. He has an excellent understanding with Fernando Gago behind him - so often Messi´s supply line. And in front of him he clicks naturally with Sergio Aguero.

There is still work to be done on the balance between attack and defence, but over the course of the campaign, Sabella´s team have worked out a well-defined and attractive identity.

2 - COLOMBIA AND ECUADOR HAVE GONE OFF THE BOIL

Neither of these teams were anywhere near their best in these two rounds, though Colombia´s win over Ecuador means that barring a mathematical miracle, they have made it to their first World Cup since 1998.

But in neither round did they show the spark that was burning so brightly a few months ago, when the players seemed to be enjoying themselves so much it was as if they were experiencing a collective childhood. Laboured and a little lucky against Ecuador, in the away match against Uruguay, the Colombians were worryingly passive and lacking width. Like the days before coach Jose Pekerman took over, they found it very hard to get behind the opposing defence and thus get the best out of centre forward Radamel Falcao Garcia. Pekerman needs to do some thinking. What is his best starting eleven?

Ecuador have had to endure the tragic loss of striker Christian Benitez, which has understandably shaken morale. It could be that they are also suffering from the defensive deficiencies showed up in June by a second string Germany side, who were four goals up before the half hour mark. Confidence has been undermined, and having to settle for the play-off slot has become a real possibility.

3 - CHILE ARE FLYING

Coach Jorge Sampaoli´s side recorded their fourth consecutive win in the campaign with Friday´s 3-0 triumph over Venezuela. They are playing the most exhilarating football in the continent, full of pace, movement and attacking intent. And then they confirmed their good form by coming within a few seconds of beating world champions Spain in a friendly in Switzerland. Only a stoppage time goal secured a 2-2 draw for the Spaniards, who were the latest victims of Chile´s incisive attacking play. A place in Brazil next year now beckons - one win from their remaining two games will be enough, and the worst-case scenario is a two legged playoff against Jordan. Neutrals should be cheering them over the line, for they will surely be an asset to the World Cup.

4 – URUGUAY ARE NEVER MORE DANGEROUS THAN WHEN THEY HAVE THEIR BACKS TO THE WALL

A few months ago it looked a tall order for Uruguay even to finish fifth and make it to the playoff. That is now all but assured - indeed, coach Oscar Washington Tabarez can now set his sights firmly on an automatic qualifying slot. Uruguay are level on points with fourth placed Ecuador, but with an inferior goal difference. In the next round, in a month´s time, Uruguay climb the Andes to meet Ecuador in their mountain fortress of Quito. The altitude makes it very hard for un-acclimatised opponents. But Uruguay are making a habit of coming up with big wins when it matters most.

Their triumphs away to Venezuela and Peru were hard-fought affairs of vital importance - these are (were in the case of Peru) the two rivals for fifth place. And then the sky blues topped it off by coming up with two late goals to beat Colombia on Tuesday.

After a dreadful 2012/13, Tabarez has got his mojo back. He has worked out that his team are at their best when they sit deep, with the defence and the midfield lines close together, and look to slip Luis Suarez into space to break on the counter-attack. Vastly experienced, they are a good tournament team - and it is looking increasingly likely that they will have the chance to show it in Brazil next year.

5 - A NEW GENERATION IS EMERGING TO CARRY VENEZUELA TO THE NEXT LEVEL

The Venezuelans can cling on to a far-fetched mathematical possibility of snatching fifth place. They need to win their one remaining game (at home to Paraguay), hope that either Uruguay or Ecuador lose both theirs, and also overturn a significant goal difference deficit (six goals against Uruguay, 10 against Ecuador). It is not going to happen. Venezuela´s brave campaign will end in disappointment - mainly because they have scored fewer goals than anyone else.

Coach Cesar Farias has stopped them being a soft touch, but it came at a price. Going into Tuesday´s game against Peru they had scored just four times in six home games - nowhere near good enough for a side with serious ambitions of making it to the World Cup.

On Tuesday, then, Farias was a bit more adventurous. He paid a price for picking a midfield with a more attacking balance - it was a factor directly responsible for Peru taking the lead. But by the final whistle he must surely have been thinking that he made the right choice. The goal that ended up winning the game illustrates the point, since two of Venezuela´s promising youngsters combined to score it. Little left footed Yohandry Orozco cut in from the right flank to set up the similarly diminutive Romulo Otero for a well-placed finish. These two talented attacking midfielders carry with them the hope that Venezuela can build on this impressive campaign, and that lack of goals and creativity will be less of a problem next time round.

Same old Mexico

It shouldn´t have been a surprise that the USA beat Mexico 2-0 in Columbus, Ohio, at Crew Stadium. While it´s not preordained, it is standard for the home team to be victorious in CONCACAF qualifying. Aside from their last match, the Americans had been playing well, and though Mexico had chances in the scoreless first half, the players lacked persistence against the USA´s stalwart goalkeeper, Tim Howard. In the second half, goals by Eddie Johnson and Landon Donovan doomed Mexico to their loss.

Losing to the USA isn´t the great failure some pundits made it out to be in the aftermath of the game. It´s no shame to lose to another strong team. Mexico´s real failure was to be in a position where the loss to the Americans could hurt so much. Those earlier matches with dropped points that too many kept excusing as being inconsequential. In the end, El Tri suffered death by a thousand cuts in losing points to the likes of Jamaica and Costa Rica and yes, even the USA at home. The loss to Honduras was perhaps the worst failure of all, given how Mexico led in the match and would have won with greater defensive discipline.

What was surprising was how many were optimistic enough to hope that the switch to Luis Fernando Tena would change things when he had been alongside Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre for Mexico´s decline all year long. There was little chance that things would change when only one coach out of the regular team was gone. Tena, who had the golden touch at the Olympics, hasn´t had the same influence with the players in this squad.

The Mexican federation needs to shoulder a fair share of the blame for the situation. It was odd to see the self-congratulation of the administrators this year, proud of themselves for backing De la Torre and allowing his "proceso" to continue instead of dumping the coach in the usual trigger-happy style. They broke with tradition and stayed the course, refusing to panic. Or, in another view, they lived in the past of De la Torre´s previous wins, took for granted that CONCACAF qualifying would be simple, and steered the El Tri ship straight for the sirens of its destruction.

It was almost amusing to see administrators who spoke about how the players had forgotten the tradition of Mexico and how to win. It´s been standard for a long time for underperforming coaches to get yanked from El Tri, big contracts notwithstanding. What made De la Torre so special that he got a pass for so long? Perhaps the idea in the heads of many was simply that there was no way Mexico would be any lower than third in qualifying.

Now Mexico sits fifth in the Hex standings after Panama salvaged a late 2-2 draw with Honduras to move into the fourth spot.

Ultimately, the results on the field are created by the players in the game. Perhaps distracted by European games or big competition in the Confederations Cup, too many players on El Tri failed to prioritize the local competition. When Christian Gimenez, the team´s newest arrival, seemed the most excited to pull on the jersey and jump into the trenches with his teammates, it didn´t bode well. It´s one thing for people to criticize Carlos Vela and Guillermo Ochoa for not coming to help the team. It´s another thing for so many not to realize that others were playing like they didn´t want to be there, either. CONCACAF games often aren´t glamorous competitions against teams in FIFA´s top echelon. They are gritty, gut-wrenching contests of endurance and nerve, and the Mexico players who were successful in the past were ready and willing to do what it took to defend the pride of their nation.

Pride, of course, has a flip side of likely being the reason that so many connected to Mexico were blind to the problems festering in El Tri. Pride led to a tragic underestimation of the competition and a refusal to believe in the improvement of the CONCACAF region. Pride in Mexico´s early triumphs under De la Torre and Tena blinded the FMF to how ineffective the coaches had become. Pride in Mexico´s long-standing tradition of World Cup play probably prompted Andres Guardado to state in a recent interview that he didn´t understand why fans were so upset and negative. Pride shone through De la Torre, when, shortly after the loss to Honduras, he opined that failure was actually defined by resigning, not by his or the team´s lack of positive results.

Mexico has a long tradition in CONCACAF, and the label of "giant" was earned by the hard work of previous players. But when the giant Goliath laughed at little David, that story didn´t turn out so well for the giant. Other CONCACAF nations, especially Honduras, have knocked down proud Mexico. What the USA win has done, securing their own passage to the World Cup at the expense of their fierce rivals, is to kick salt and sand into an already festering wound.

Mexico must show courage to stop the bleeding and humility to take the needed actions, however drastic, to earn their own ticket to Brasil 2013. The first step is to take Panama´s challenge very seriously. The next, if it comes to it, is not to overlook New Zealand, either.

Demystified Azteca now hosts Mexico´s last stand

Oct. 11 will serve as Judgment Day for a Mexican national team that has just eight points in an equal number of World Cup qualifying matches, its worst output to that point since the Hexagonal system was instituted by CONCACAF.

Once a sprawling fortress that intimidated opponents with its sheer architecture and atmospheric rarities, the Estadio Azteca has turned from Mexico´s biggest strength to a looming nightmare. With even interim coach Luis Fernando Tena doubting his own continuity as El Tri´s boss, the Mexican Federation has huge decisions to make in the coming hours.

Ratifying Tena at the helm would continue a process started under Jose Manuel de la Torre that has brought out both the best and the worst from Mexico in a relatively short period. A weighted gamble that seems more and more ludicrous as time goes on, considering the latest string of results. Then there´s the option of bringing someone else in, from the outside.

On the domestic front, Tomas Boy, Victor Manuel Vucetich and Miguel Herrera look to be frontrunners. All very decent options, all, sans Boy, proven winners in the Liga MX fold through their respectively lengthy careers. Looking abroad, one man stands head and shoulders over the rest as the most tantalizing candidate: Marcelo Bielsa.

Whether it be one of the five men (including Tena) previously mentioned or a candidate out of left field who takes the reins of the Mexican national team, the task at hand will take place under a veritable pressure cooker. The sporting, social and economic domino effect stemming from Mexico potentially missing the World Cup would be a travesty for the entire nation, and even some international organizations.

Changes on the pitch are a must. Mexico has been carrying dead weight for months now, and players such as Andres Guardado, Carlos Salcido, Gerardo Torrado, Giovani dos Santos and Javier Hernandez, who seemed vital not too long ago, are big question marks moving forward. Whoever is in charge must also institute a set style of play, not a rotating mess in which players float about in a 4-4-2, 4-5-1 and even a 4-2-3-1 without a sense of why they´re doing it and what they need to do to make their strategy work on the pitch.

More so than tactical adjustments though, whoever´s in charge needs to recapture confidence and motivate players to achieve what is expected of them. Panama´s golden generation has already vaulted them to this point, a win or go home situation that they´ll be more than ready for, with visions of two Gold Cup upsets racing in their heads as they step onto the pitch next month. Talented or not, underdogs or not, the Central American side will not be an easy target by any means.

Mexico has to understand that even with its innate advantages, it will be stepping into a dog fight. Ninety minutes of pure gut-wrenching drama that will essentially decide its fate as the calendar races toward 2014.

And they will fight not just for their right to play in the next World Cup, but also to re-establish the reputation of the Estadio Azteca as one of world soccer´s temples. A place that has haunted so many in the past, where a Mexican victory was a virtual certainty before the anthems were even played. A building they could turn to when times were tough. A symbol of hope.

Smells like Garra Charrua

Goals from Cavani and Stuani brought Uruguay back from the brink of disaster. Uruguay is no longer that team who will miss the World Cup, no longer that team who will see Venezuela leap-frog them in the standings. Uruguay now looks more like a team who are playing like a team and a team that wants to win.

And here Tabárez has to be applauded for fixing 2 to 3 things that were wrong with the team. Technically this is still the same team that lost a whole bunch of games last year but the mood is decisively different. Who knew that out of the 3 new players Tabárez capped for the Poland Friendly (Aguirregaray, Stuani and El Chori Castro) it would be Stuani who would change Uruguay’s luck. Lodeiro who had a solid game in that Poland friendly was absolutely dreadful against Colombia. Stuani picked up right where he left off against Perú and it may be that Tabárez may have found his new False 9. Does this mean Uruguay doesn’t need Forlán anymore? No, but it means Tabárez’ left-field picks ––and Stuani was about as far-left as you can get –– aren’t as crazy as we believe. Bringing in new personnel was important. Using the Confederations Cup as as mini-boot camp was also important. Combined, these two factors allowed Uruguay to rediscover the right temperament to employ in these qualifiers.

Before the game was even played, some in the press were hoping for a draw… a draw is perhaps the dirtiest of words. It’s a curse word. Given the circumstances though, a draw, given this opponent would’ve made sense. Yet this is a born-again Sky-Blue squad we’re talking about here. A draw wouldn’t have made sense, not with Venezuela hanging around like a vulture in the sky. And out of all the teams ranked 3 to 6, Venezuela is still the snake in the grass Uruguay needs to watch out for. Don’t trust them – keep winning, strangle them in their sleep. Tabárez has realized this. That 5th place spot to face what we now know will be Jordan had given Venezuela and Perú too much hope – Target Ecuador instead.

And this is precisely what’s going on. Uruguay’s 2-0 defeat of Colombia has allowed Uruguay to draw even with Ecuador on points, setting up a heavy-weight showdown on October 11th. Ecuador who came back from La Paz with a point is technically still in 4th place based on goal average but now have to face this streaking hot Uruguay. Not much separates 3rd place from 5th place. A draw outside of Bolivia is equal to a loss anywhere else. Right now Ecuador does not want to face Uruguay. Not this Uruguay that’s for sure.

Uruguay is still not out of danger. 5th place for now is still 5th place. To get to 4th, they have to take out Ecuador. A draw in that CONMEBOL sponsored armpit would mean Uruguay would need to win against Argentina on the last fixture to qualify directly, we all remember how that went last time around. Tabárez has to continue feeding the machine. They like to win now. The draw is the ugly girl at the dance, leave her where you found her and get back to winning.

Teo Gutiérrez se reintegró en River

BUENOS AIRES -- El delantero Teófilo Gutiérrez se reintegró a los entrenamientos de River tras jugar para el seleccionado colombiano y el domingo será titular en el partido ante Arsenal, en Sarandí, por la séptima fecha del Torneo Inicial.

En el estadio Monumental, Gutiérrez hizo movimientos regenerativos junto a los futbolistas que el martes jugaron para la Reserva en la victoria 2-1 sobre Tigre.

El entrenador Ramón Díaz comenzará a definir el jueves el equipo que jugará el domingo, pero todo parece indicar que en el ataque pondrá a Manuel Lanzini de enganche, y a Gutiérrez y a Federico Andrada como delanteros.

En tanto, Eder Álvarez Balanta, quien se recupera de una distensión en el isquiotibial izquierdo y tendrá para entre una y dos semanas de parate, trotó alrededor del campo de juego.

Su reemplazante ante Arsenal sería Jonathan Bottinelli, quien jugó todo el segundo tiempo en el triunfo 3-0 del domingo ante Tigre.

Una formación tentativa para jugar en Sarandí el domingo a las 21.15 sería con: Marcelo Barovero; Gabriel Mercado, Jonatan Maidana, Bottinelli, Leonel Vangioni; Carlos Carbonero, Leonardo Ponzio, Ariel Rojas; Lanzini; Andrada y Gutiérrez.

El mediocampista ofensivo Jonathan Fabbro se reintegrará el jueves a las prácticas luego de haber jugado el martes 54 minutos en el partido que el seleccionado argentino le ganó 5-2 al de Paraguay, al que representó por tener la doble nacionalidad.

Por otro lado, el presidente del club, Daniel Passarella, regresó este miércoles al país tras pasar cerca de dos semanas en Europa, donde intentó vender a Álvarez Balanta pero al parecer sin suerte.
