Dumped Bauza believes Argentina will make World Cup

Bauza joined the national team in August but the Argentine has won just three of eight games, with his team scoring just nine goals in those games.

Argentina have made the decision to part ways with manager Edgardo Bauza following a poor run in World Cup qualifying.

Argentina are fifth in South American qualifying with four games to play, and only the top four are assured of spots in Russian Federation.

The next coach of Argentina will carry a massive weight on his shoulders: after coming heartbreakingly close to victory in the 2014 World Cup, this football-mad nation is demanding nothing less than the trophy in Russian Federation.

There is, of course, the extremely unlikely appointment of Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone, but he remains committed to Atletico.

Argentina sit fifth in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, which would see them drawn into a play-off against an Oceania side.

"We've reached an agreement, we've told Bauza he's ceased to be the national team coach", the Argentine FA's recently elected president Claudio Tapia said.

Captain Lionel Messi was handed a four-match ban for abusing an official just hours before their last match ended in a 2-0 defeat in Bolivia.

"Many don't value the sacrifice they make, a generation who despite having lost a final or two have always given their utmost", said Bauza, whose two Copa Libertadores victories had earned him the job.
