England vs Argentina derby on Saturday

Share |

Traditionally enemies, England and Argentina will play a high tension match on Saturday. England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson plans to field a strong lineup and hopes that Ledley King will recover sufficiently from a knee injury to take his place in the deep midfield role behind Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

Owen and Wayne Rooney are set to line up in attack.

Argentina coach Jose Pekerman has most of his big stars available, although 18-year-old FC Barcelona striker Lionel Messi will miss the game through suspension.

Hernan Crespo is likely to face Chelsea teammates John Terry, Lampard, Joe Cole and Shaun Wright-Phillips

"This game is special not only for me but for everyone," said the striker whose future at Chelsea appears in doubt after a reported fallout with coach Jose Mourinho.
