This Is What Martin Palermo Can Do!

Argentina boss, Diego Maradona in his desperation has called up Martin Palermo into his Argentine squad for the crucial World Cup qualifier against Peru and Uruguay. The last time Palermo was called up was ten years ago, when he was 25. To say this is a waste of national caps may be too judgemental but I would have thought that there could be better alternatives to Palermo as replacement for the injured Diego Milito.

Even then, Martin Palermo is a larger-than-life personality and perhaps that is needed to bring some spark and enthusiasm back into an Argentine national team lacking in cohesion and confidence.

Check out this 40-yard headed goal by Palermo from Off The Post.

Also his infamous three penalty misses in a single match!

Hopefully, Argentina gets back to winning ways as the World Cup 2010 will be so much poorer without the delightful skills of Messi and Aguero.
