Tevez Set To Start Tonight Against Mexico

The overwhelming choice of Argentina’s hinchada Carlos Tevez will start tonight upfront alongside Lionel Messi in the semi-final clash with Mexico in place of Diego Milito.

Tevez came off the bench to replace Milito in the quarter-final against Peru and quickly led his teammates through the Peruvian rearguard. Within minutes of taking the field he set up Riquelme for Argentina’s opener and set up two more as well as seeing a header come back off the crossbar.

Since then the calls for his inclusion from the start have reached a crescendo and now coach Coco Basile is finally prepared to abandon his preference for a more traditional target man – Milito was the replacement for the injured Crespo – and go with two small but extremely mobile front men.
