Maradona To Debut In Argentina, Venezuela Matchup

soccer-jerseyLegendary soccer star Diego Maradona may have seen and done it all in the world of football. But the always entertaining sports supernova will make a big debut Saturday when he takes to the field as the coach of the national team.

Maradona’s coaching and management prowess will be on display for the first time as he leads the “selección” in a World Cup qualifying match against an inferior squad from Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela.

The teams have met 15 times over the years and each time Argentina has won, scoring a total of 62 goals compared with just 8 for Venezuela.

Argentina is currently ranked third (behind Paraguay and Brazil) out of 10 South American teams trying to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The top four teams in each regional category qualify.

Tickets for the match, being played at River Stadium, are selling out quickly, though scalpers will surely have some available at the gate. The game starts at 7:10 pm local time.

“I want the River stadium to explode and for the players to be applauded,” Maradona said Thursday in comments to reporters. It’s a pretty good bet this is exactly what will happen.

It should be an interesting match. With the rift between Maradona and Riquelme, will the team be affected by the departure of such a key and/or controversial player?

How come’
14 BLOCKS OF PEOPLE WAITING TO GET THE TICKETS.
Many of them since 4 in the morning.
ALL THE 60 pesos tickets are gone, now they only spend 130 or 600 pesos….a lot of money.
In many cases 600 pesos is a whole retirement check.

130 pesos can buy milk and bread for the kids, plus meat, and food for a basic table of a week.
All these young people doesn’t work.
They spend the whole morning of a working week day doing nothing, just waiting for a irresponsably stay in la cancha to see DIOS. Communicating with relatives through first level cellular phones.
At least one thing they have in common with the rich and filthy oligarchs of del campo.
They all get up at 4 am. At the same time that the people get up milking the cows, the other ones they get up just to buy a footbol ticket that we all stupidly pay.
something has to be changed.
