Gender Male
Ethnic Argentinian
Job Argentinian Footballer
Desc Javier Zanetti wasn’t your typical South American full-back. He didn’t bomb forward with reckless abandon, nor did he rely on the fabled ‘dark arts’ to succeed. What set him apart was his supreme technical prowess and scarcely-believable consistency, as his lofty standards rarely dropped right e way up until his retirement in 2014. Despite making 144 appearances for Argentina, Zanetti only played at two World Cups, as he was inexplicably left out of the 2006 and 2010 squads, much to the bewilderment of supporters who had grown to love the Inter legend

[Javier Zanetti speaks about La Albiceleste’s embarrassment of riches going into next year’s World Cup] There’s been a lot of change in personnel. Until recently, Pipita [Gonzalo Higuain] was the undisputed No 9. Now Mauro Icardi has got his chance, which is richly deserved because of what he’s doing for Inter Milan. Mauro can be useful for the national team, but that doesn’t mean Higuain shouldn’t be in the squad. Argentina are lucky enough to have an embarrassment of riches up front, from Pipita to Icardi, Paulo Dybala, Lionel Messi and so on. They’ve got so many options. I hope they can all go to the World Cup because they’d give the squad great strength in depth
