Zanetti: "Argentina, a team without ideas and soul"
Javier Zanetti was unable to hide bitterness after witnessing his country only managed to get a draw against Iceland.
“Let’s say that Argentina as a country is not happy because nobody expected this result in the first game, especially for the performance and of course the missed penalty (Messi). I saw a national team without ideas and soul and this worries me a lot about the games to come.
“In defense, the only consistent player was Nicolas Otamendi. This team was slow and predictable. Messi and Maradona comparision? Why do we even have to do it? Maradona was the best in his era and Messi is in his. He does not need the World Cup to be the best player in Argentina.
“Icardi? He deserved to be here but Jorge Sampaoli made other choices by bringing Higuain and Dybala, choices that must be respected.”
