Basile still flirting with Aimar

Argentina coach ‘Coco’ Basile is still flirting with the idea of dropping Cambiasso and starting Pablo Aimar alongside Verón and Riquelme in tomorrow’s opening game against the USA.

Aimar is a firm favourite of many Argentine fans but his international career has been hampered by injuries. But after a season at Real Zaragoza in which he stayed injury free and played some of his best football in years, his shining form in training has caused Basile to consider the ultra-creative option of Verón-Aimar-Riquelme playing behind Messi and Crespo. Argentina’s team for tomorrow’s opener:

Abbondanzieri

Zanetti, Ayala, Gabriel Milito and Heinze

Verón, Mascherano and Cambiasso or Aimar

Riquelme

Messi and Crespo.
