PRETORIA (AFP) - Carlos Tevez said on Tuesday that he and his Argentine teammates were solely interested in winning the World Cup, rather than just putting in a solid showing in South Africa.
"A good World Cup for Argentina will be to win it - nothing else will do. If we get to the quarters, the last 16, or whatever - that will not do," said the Manchester City striker at a news conference in Pretoria.
Tevez also said he was right behind coach Diego Maradona, a controversial choice to take the reins midway through an unconvincing qualifying campaign.
"A phenomenon," exclaimed Tevez, when asked to describe the 1986 World Cup-winning skipper.
