Diego Perotti gets called up by Maradona

Diego Perotti has been called up in a last minute request to Sevilla for Argentina’s friendly with Spain this Saturday. As soon as Maradona realized that Jonas Gutierrez & El Kun Aguerro would not be available he made the SOS call for the young 21 year old Perotti. It appears Maradonna has had his eye on Perotti since the beginning of the Season which doesn’t surprise me given that Perotti has been a outstanding asset with his 2 goals, 1 assist. His very aggressive offensive style has helped position Sevilla in 3rd place right behind Real Madrid. He has total command of the left wing but can play other key offensive midfield positions very much a la KAKA.

Hernan Crespo keeps scoring goals

Crespo continues to produce for Genoa with two great goals containing his classic signature style. His two goals were critical in Genoa’s 4-2 win over Siena. He seems quite hopeful that Maradona will keep him in mind for one of Argentina’s key striker positions. See all the goals in the clip below.
