With Nicolas Otamendi’s recent form for Manchester City not being very good, Argentina fans had a pretty big reason to be worried about their defence against Germany.
What they probably didn’t expect was that it was another centre-back who would be the worst player in the team. That’s Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo.
Olé, the biggest sports newspaper in Argentina, has given the player a rating of 3 out of 10 for last night’s game. More than that, they had a story just to talk about how poor he’s been.
The big reason why Rojo is being blamed is Germany’s second goal. He tried to nutmeg a player on the left wing, and once he lost the ball, the defence was obviously wide open.
Olé goes heavy on him, wondering why he’s still getting minutes for the national team, even after being absent for a while.
They show he hasn’t been playing a lot for Manchester United, especially because his performances are ‘unstable’.
Despite calling it a ‘fatal mistake’, Argentina ended up not losing the friendly, with the game ending with a 2-2 draw.
