Maradona: Argentina have 'no idea'
Diego Maradona says he worries about Argentina's World Cup chances as they are short of ideas on the pitch.

Despite reaching the quarterfinals -- where they meet Belgium on Saturday -- the Albiceleste have often struggled in Brazil.
Lionel Messi has had to come to the rescue on more than one occasion, and Maradona -- who captained Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986 and coached them in 2010 -- feels they will need to up their game if they are to progress any further.
"My team were a lot more offensive than this one. It looks bleak for us if I'm honest.
"I wish the team played differently, that it exploited all the ability its players have.
"We haven't seen the best from them neither tactically nor individually and this worries me."
Maradona also hit out at the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Fernando Gago for their performances in the win against Switzerland.
"Watching the match against Switzerland, I was alarmed that Higuain didn't have enough forward movement, that he moved inside the central midfielders," he added.
"I was worried about Gago's tiredness, that [Javier] Mascherano had to cover all the ground.
"This was a stuttering Argentina. It needs to change its rhythm."
