Argentina star and Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero is still waiting to find out if he will be Argentina’s No. 1 at the World Cup.
Argentina starting keeper Sergio Romero at the 2014 World Cup, was lost when the Albiceleste finished runners-up to Germany, to a knee injury during the country’s preparations for the tournament in Russia.
Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli is expected to start Caballero in goal ahead of River Plate’s Franco Armani and Tigres UANL’s Nahuel Guzman.
“The three goalkeepers have a feeling of being starters,” Cabellero said in a news conference at Argentina’s headquarters in Bronnitsy.
“Until we don’t hear the list from the coach, we will not know.
“I played the last game but we are still competing for that position each day. I think Argentina or Jorge [Sampaoli’s] style of play demands for the goalkeeper to play more with the feet.
“We adapt to that and we try to do the best to play, to have more of the ball. We need to realise that we are also part of the team’s play creation. For us, this makes us better players.”
Caballero made 14 appearances for Chelsea last season and started in Argentina’s 4-0 friendly win over Haiti in the team’s final warmup game for the World Cup, while he also played for Argentina at under-20 level and won the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship.
