Costa Rica: Hopefully Argentina Not Revive
Costa Rica does not want to release the tickets for quarter-finals of Copa America 2011, which is already in sight. Ricardo La Volpe made a team that will play aggressively to reduce the Argentina game, which the two last match appeared disappointing.
Therefore, La Volpe hope Argentina will again performed poorly in all three games. Thus, Costa Rica could beat Argentina to advance to the quarter-finals. Two teams that will compete on Tuesday morning GMT.
"May they not rise tomorrow. They have three wings with (Lionel) Messi and (Gonzalo) Higuain. They must be more aggressive," said La Volpe as quoted from the official website of the Copa America 2011.
Addition Higuain , there is also Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria. These players that warrant concern by Costa Rica.
La Volpe asserted, however, lies heavy pressure on Argentina coach, Sergio Batista. Because, if you draw or lose, the host 2011 Copa America will be eliminated.
Batista himself will certainly alter the strategy for his team against Costa Rica in the final game in qualifying Group A Copa America 2011. Batista will sacrifice duo Carlos Tevez and Ezequiel Lavezzi for to put Lionel Messi up front.
This is done because Tevez and Lavezzi failed to become the spearhead of a productive after Argentina produced only one goal in two games. Both duet also it less cohesive and blunt.
"We rebuilt the team and I'm sure we can do. We changed the whole system so that Messi could be a playmaker with the strikers," said Batista in AP, Monday, July 11, 2011.
In addition to overhauling Tevez and Lavezzi, several other players will also be modified by Batista. Predicted midfielder Esteban Cambiasso and Ever Banega will be back in the match against Costa Rica. The changes are quite striking considering Cambiasso is a seasoned player in Argentina. Their position will be replaced Fernando Gago, Gonzalo Higuain, and Angel di Maria.
