Is it just my impression or he can't play smf anymore? In WC he played in there vs Bosnia and he seemed lost and pretty bad overall, that's probably why Sabella didn't use him anymore. I think he could be a good option vs Germany replacing Lavezzi or Enzo, using him as a kind of wf.
he played as ss and didn't good match, played really away the box, tried some dribbles without much accuracy but pretty useful to make some diagonals to the sides to leave an empty space to other mate. His kp is amazing and he's a really good penalty taker, has really good kp/st
Again he scored showing a good response to 'steal' that ball or better said, score.
He's so class, 5 goals in 10 matches so far (did he play all of them?)...sometimes I think he does need *Scoring...his goal rate is just insane for a midfielder. Also it's true he's playing more as striker or wf.
And again...his conversion rate is just ridicolous, he's been showing awesome consistency and for sure is 7.
It seems he probably leaves Newell's in december, some teams from Mexico and also Boca wants him. I can't imagine him leaving Newell's but it seems his relationship with the crowd isn't as good as it used to be before the lost derby.
Sometimes I feel he could have even better response, his reactions in the box are just like the best goal poacher cf. He's in a great level, he's the only Newell's player who kept Tata Martino's era level.
ts doesn't seems to be over low greens, also he didn't give half shit to defend last night leaving insua 2 or even 3 on 1 all the time, scored a good goal but was gassed around the 60' after touching the ball like 3 times
