Just curious, how come Zanetti isn't the captain? He's got more caps than Masche
The captain isn't decided on the basis of caps. Mascherano was captain material for the national team ever since he was captain at youth level. Strangely, when he became captain - under Diego - which was overdue, he was reluctant to take it because he is not a vocal leader.
Zanetti is a legend, but he was one of many poor players against Bolivia, he offered no support down the right to Lavezzi in an attacking sense. One of many reasons we constantly looked isolated any time we attacked.
Probably will get married in the middle of the tournament so all his teammates are forced to attend
If we keep playing like we did against Bolivia, the middle of the tournament will be getting on without us and Gago can have his wedding free of any football committments.
