Angel di Maria captains Argentina win over El Salvador

by Sam Peoples

Angel di Maria captained Argentina to a 2-0 win over El Salvador in their international friendly.

In Lionel Messi’s absence due to a bruised foot, Di Maria was given the armband which was great to see.

Although his performance wasn’t show-stopping, it’ll still push him towards the right direction because something has certainly got to change with his attitude back at Manchester United.

Here’s a few pictures of him in action against El Salvador:

Di Maria’s muted form is starting to worry Man United fans. When he came on against Liverpool, he almost made the team worse as his decision making was all wrong.

While a return journey to USA won’t do anything to help Di Maria’s fitness, fans are hoping it will kick start a change in his approach and form, starting with Aston Villa next weekend at Old Trafford.

At the start of the season before injuries plighted him, Di Maria looked every bit worth the club record £59.7m fee paid for him in the summer. He has already shown what he is capable of and, as they say, form is temporary and class is permanent but fans are desperate for him to re-find that match winning ability.
