Argentina football team pities Georgians for money2011-01-10 12:47
There haven't been many nice things for Georgia recently. There are awards and titles Georgia offers others receiving nothing in exchange. One Latin American country decided to set things right with the so-called New Year gift for Sakartvelo. Argentina national football team proposed a friendly match with Georgia. Since Georgians don't have many achievements in European or world tournaments, even one meeting with pros from Argentina might add festivity in the life of Georgian citizens.
The situation of Georgia national team in Group F of Euro 2012 qualifying tournament is nothing but pitiable. The team's only victory is over Malta, now at the bottom of the standings. Three other matches ended in a draw. What they must do now is to defeat the headliners and come to Poland and Ukraine in shining armor. It is unlikely that Croatia and Greece, left with nothing at the last championship, will miss the chance to demonstrate what they are really capable of.
On the other hand, Georgia has been unlucky with passing qualification to European and World Cups since 1994 when it stopped playing under the flag of the Soviet Union. It is clear that a bad workman often blames his tools. Apparently, for this very reason Argentina football players made this generous proposal to Georgians considering all pros and cons.
Argentina has already submitted an official address to Georgia Football Federation. Still, to the regret of elating Georgian authorities, the proposal is not at all gratuitous, as it might seem at first sight. The team is ready to come to Tbilisi for a match on February 9 if paid EUR 1,200,000. Besides, the Argentine delegation must be granted 45 hotel suites. If the requirements are met the capital of Georgia will see fabulous Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez, a Milito brother (or both brothers), Sergio Aguero and other stars of Argentinean football.
One question: is the Argentine team going to win or lose to Georgia for this money? As the Football Federation informs the amount asked by the Argentinean side is extremely big, and the federation is applying best efforts to make the Latin Americans cut it down.
