Buenos Aires - Argentina's coach Alejandro Sabella believes Nigeria will be
intimidated by the quality of attackers at his disposal in this summer's World
Argentina are favourites to progress from Group F which also
comprises of Nigeria, Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina. And Sabbella is confident
that with the plethora of striking options at his disposal, all he needs is a
stable defence to enable his side go all the way in the competition.
Sabella noted that his team are currently one of the best in
the world, but cautioned that expectations should not be carried to high in
order to avoid complacency.
"Our rivals will fear us. Argentina has an amazing
front line," Sabella said on the national team’s official website.
"It’s very hard to be World champions. We don’t have to
believe that we are the best. In fact, we know we’re not the best, but we are a
candidate. We can’t go into the tournament thinking we’ve won it.
"I don’t know if I’ll take seven or eight defenders.
Depends on whether I include another midfielder. The best thing is to try and
cover all the areas. Almost certainly those who are here now will be making it."
