Biglia Tips Argentina For World Cup Success, Rues Romero’s Absence

Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia has said the Albiceleste will do everything possible to have a memorable 2018 World Cup.

Argentina go into the World Cup in Russia as one of the favourites having emerged champions in 1978 and 1986.


They are in Group D in Russia with Nigeria, Croatia and Iceland.

Biglia, 32, and his Argentine teammates almost won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but lost 1-0 to Germany after extra-time.

“We are going to shoot our last shot as accurately as possible,” Biglia told Ole on Saturday.

“We hope to put up a fight and to have the best World Cup possible.”

Biglia who was in the Argentina U-20 side that beat Nigeria’s Flying Eagles 2-1 in the final of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in the Netherlands, expressed sadness that Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero will miss the World Cup due to injury.

“We are very sad because Romero is a reference point in the national team.”

And on what to expect from him in Russia, Biglia said: “I know very clearly what my role is. I do what the coach ask of me and my teammates, nothing more. What interests me the least is being the protagonist.

“I want the best for the team, the personal achievements do not interest me.”
