Argentina Leave out Zanetti, Gamble on Heinze

Former captain Javier Zanetti was left out of Argentina's World Cup squad on Monday while Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze, who has been out all season with a knee injury, was included.

Coach Jose Pekerman also selected Valencia playmaker Pablo Aimar, who recently suffered an ankle sprain followed by a bout of viral meningitis, and forward Javier Saviola, who has refound his best form with Sevilla this season after two years of uncertainty.

Nineteen-year-old Oscar Ustari was included as the third-choice goalkeeper but there was no place for his club-mate, 17-year-old forward Sergio Aguero, regarded as one of Argentina's most exciting prospects.

Argentina, who fell at the first hurdle four years ago, face Ivory Coast, Netherlands and Serbia & Montenegro in their first round group.

Zanetti, 32, played for Argentina at the 1998 and 2002 World Cups and was present in most of the 18-match qualifying campaign for 2006.

He said earlier on Monday that Pekerman had called him to tell him he would not be going to Germany.

"Nobody told me I had done anything wrong but I'd known for the last week I wasn't going to be in the squad," he said.

The Inter Milan player, who can play on the right side of either the defence or midfielder, has lost his place to West Ham United's Lionel Scaloni.

Pekerman took a gamble on the fitness of Heinze, who has not played a competitive game since suffering cruciate ligament damage in the Champions League match away to Villarreal on Sept 14.

Meanwhile, central defender Roberto Ayala, who missed out on the 2002 World Cup through a last-minute injury, only returned to action for Valencia in March after knee surgery.

"We repect the players ... and of course these decisions are painful, there's never going to be a logical explanation," said Pekerman. "This is the squad in which I have confidence."

"This is a top level squad with desire and hunger to bring back a little bit of happiness," he added. "I hope everyone gets behind this group which gives me hope and great confidence."

Pekerman was previously Argentina's under-20 coach and more than half of the players chosen have played in one of the teams which he coached to victory in the World Youth championships of 1995, 1997 and 2001.

"There's been a constant renovation of players and I'm enthusiastic about this," he said. The other surprises were the inclusion of Boca Juniors forward Rodrigo Palacio, one of only three home-based players in the squad, and Inter Milan striker Julio Cruz. Squad:

Goalkeepers: Roberto Abbondanzieri (Boca Juniors), Leonardo Franco (Atletico Madrid, Spain), Oscar Ustari (Independiente)

Defenders: Roberto Ayala (Valencia, Spain), Gabriel Heinze (Manchester United, England), Juan Pablo Sorin (Villareal, Spain), Fabricio Coloccini (Deportivo Coruna, Spain), Gabriel Milito (Zaragona, Spain), Nicolas Burdisso (Inter Milan, Italy) Leandro Cufre (AS Roma, Italy), Lionel Scaloni (West Ham United, England)

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano (Corinthians, Brazil), Esteban Cambiasso (Inter Milan, Italy), Luis Gonzalez (Porto, Portugal), Juan Roman Riquelme (Villareal, Spain), Maxi Rodriguez (Atletico Madrid, Spain), Pablo Aimar (Valencia, Spain)

Forwards: Hernan Crespo (Chelsea, England), Carlos Tevez (Corinthians, Brazil), Lionel Messi (Barcelona, Spain), Javier Saviola (Sevilla, Spain), Julio Cruz (Inter Milan, Italy), Rodrigo Palacio (Boca Juniors, Argentina)


阿根廷队出征2006年德国世界杯球员的名单于15日正式对外公布。令人意外的是,效力于意大利国际米兰队的前队长萨内蒂意外落选,而本赛季因伤缺席了整整一个赛季的曼联后卫海因策的入选同样令人感到吃惊。

据路透社15日报道,现年32岁的萨内蒂代表阿根廷队参加了1998和2002年两届世界杯,并参加了18场德国世界杯预选赛中的大部分比赛。在接受采访时萨内蒂表示此前阿根廷队主教练佩克曼已经电话通知了他落选阿根廷队的决定。“没人告诉我究竟我什么地方做错了,”他说:“但从上周开始我就知道不可能去德国了”。

效力于意大利国际米兰队的萨内蒂多在右边路活动,既可以胜任后卫也可以司职前卫。在德国世界杯上,他的位置将由目前效力于英超西汉姆联队的斯卡罗尼顶替。

而效力于曼联的海因策在去年9月14日欧洲冠军联赛曼联客场同西班牙比利亚雷亚尔队的比赛中十字韧带拉伤,本赛季因此没有参加一场正式比赛,他的入选表明了佩克曼敢于冒险的勇气。

“我们尊重这些球员。当然做出这些决定是痛苦的,而至于谁入选和谁落选的话题,永远也没有一个合乎逻辑的解释,”佩克曼表示:“我选择这些球员是因为我对他们有信心。这是我们所希望的一支高水平的球队,他们都渴望从世界杯上为国民带来一些快乐”。

佩克曼此前曾经是阿根廷队20岁以下青年队的主教练。在这份阿根廷队23人名单中,人们不难发现其中有一半以上的球员都曾经参加过1995、1997和2001年世界青年足球锦标赛,而那时的阿根廷青年队正是由佩克曼执教。

以下为阿根廷队出征德国世界杯的23人名单:守门员:罗伯托·阿本丹泽里(阿根廷博卡青年队)、莱昂纳多·弗兰科(西班牙马德里竞技)和奥斯卡·乌斯塔里(阿根廷独立队)

后卫:罗伯托·阿亚拉(西班牙瓦伦西亚)、海因策(英超曼联)、索林(西班牙比利亚雷亚尔)、科洛奇尼(西班牙拉科鲁尼亚)、米利托(西班牙萨拉格萨)、布迪索(意大利国际米兰)、库福雷(意大利罗马)和斯卡罗尼(英超西汉姆)

中场:马斯凯拉诺(巴西科林蒂安)、坎比亚索(意大利国际米兰)、冈萨雷斯(葡萄牙波尔图)、里克尔梅(西班牙比利亚雷亚尔)、罗德里奎斯(西班牙马德里竞技)和艾玛尔(西班牙瓦伦西亚)

前锋:克雷斯波(英超切尔西)、特维斯(巴西科林蒂安)、梅西(西班牙巴塞罗那)、萨维奥拉(西班牙塞维利亚)、克鲁兹(意大利国际米兰)和帕拉西奥(阿根廷博卡青年队)
