The Strange Selection Made By Diego Maradona In The 2010 FIFA World Cup

Nobody can doubt that Diego Maradona is one of the best footballers ever. Speaking about the great, making online betting Nigeria is the best on 1xBet, which punters can also use to wager on the Argentinian national side.

However, it is also undeniable that his spell as manager of the Argentinian national team was far from
good. In fact, even some ardent fans of the legendary player argued that, while being an exceptional
footballer, he was not up to the managerial task. Right now making online betting is the best
experience on the 1xBet Nigeria website, where punters can wager on the best coaches.

Meet Ariel Garcé

As manager of the Argentinian national side, Diego Maradona needed to select the 23 footballers that
would play the 2010 FIFA World Cup. If you want to wager on other matches from this major
competition, you can use 1xBet app for iPhone to wager from the comfort of your phone.
There were some interesting names in that team, such as:

● Ángel Di María;
● Javier Mascherano;
● Sergio Agüero;
● Lionel Messi;
● and Ariel Garcé.

But wait. Who is Ariel Garcé and how did he find his way among names like Messi, Agüero and Di
María? The Argentinian national football team is an excellent team to wager by using the 1xBet app
for iPhone devices too.

A squad that caused a lot of skepticism

On the surface, Argentina’s squad was quite good. After all, having names like Messi or Agüero is a
true luxury. However, there were other names that people were quite skeptical about having in the
team. Some of them were Martín Palermo or Juan Sebastián Verón. On the virtual betting website
1xBet you can also wager on the best Argentinian footballers too.

Both Verón and Palermo were exceptional footballers, but their age also meant that they were past
their prime. But the question of Ariel Garcé remained.

He was a good defender from Argentinian team Colón. However, many argued that Argentina had
plenty of other defenders that could be selected ahead of him. Even his number was quite strange. He
was assigned the number 12, which Argentina normally assigns to a goalkeeper.

Some Argentinian journalists came up with a theory. It states that Maradona had a dream a few
months before the FIFA World Cup. In that dream he saw himself lifting the World Cup trophy with the
rest of the Argentinian squad. According to them, in that Dream, Maradona apparently saw Garcé
wearing the number 12 shirt.

The superstitions that some people have around football can’t be underestimated. Because of this,
there is indeed a possibility that this was the actual reason for Garcé’s selection for the World Cup. On
the virtual betting website offered by 1xBet you can also wager on all major FIFA tournaments.
