Diego Maradona wants his Argentina team to stay focused on the job at hand rather than worry about who they may or may not meet later on in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™. The South Americans took a major step towards qualification from Group B with a commanding display against Korea Republic on Thursday as Gonzalo Higuain scored the first hat-trick of the competition in a 4-1 win in Johannesburg.
"We've seen my team play, we have evaluated the players, we've taken a look at what may be in store for us, but we want to concentrate and go on playing this way," said Maradona. "We want to follow this path. We don't want to think so much about possible opponents and other teams we could perhaps meet afterward. I think the competition as such is important and also to have a certain competition amongst the players to see how we work as a team in the World Cup instead of looking at the other teams."
