The former coach of Argentina national team Alfio Basile(nickname: Coconut) talked about the forward Gonzalo Higuaín recently and he said that it was Higuaín that resulted largely in Argentina’s failure in the 2014 World Cup.
Basile said:“The most impressive player at that time was Higuaín, but everyone didn’t want to remember that. Because when it comes to the 2014 World Cup, everyone thinks that Higuaín lost the chance to score a goal at the beginning of the game and we finally missed the championship.”
“I didn’t know what happened to Higuaín at that time. He could shoot by thousands of ways, but he lost it.”
“We couldn’t say that he resulted in our failure, but he indeed did it. Higuaín was under tremendous pressure. It may be a goal that will help Argentina national team win the FIFA World Cup Trophy and will create an immortal history.”
In addition, Basile also said something about Sampaoli, “I didn’t know him before. I knew him when he helped Chile get the title of Copa América in 2015. I was surprised that he could serve as head coach of Argentina national team.”
Argentina national team once won Copa América in 1991 and won again in 1993. Basile was the coach at that time.
Jorge Luis Sampaoli Moya(born 13 March 1960) is currently the manager of Argentina national team. He was appointed as the head coach by the Argentine Football Association on 20 May 2017. His first game was a friendly match against Brazil on 9 June in Australia. Sampaoli was named South American Coach of the Year and IFFHS World’s Best National Coach in 2015 and La Liga Manager of the Month in October 2016.
