Argentina striker Carlos Tevez insists he is fully prepared both mentally and physically prepared to lead his country’s forward line at the World Cup.
Tevez and Argentina struggled in the qualifiers and only scraped into the finals courtesy of a 1-0 win over Uruguay in their final match amid a storm of criticism.
However, the Manchester City forward claims they will do much better in South Africa, where they face South Korea, Nigeria and Greece in Group B.
“This is a World Cup,” Tevez told Clarin.”Who can not been motivated when they have this opportunity?
“In the qualifiers everything was a lot more difficult. Injuries didn’t allow me to be fully fit, something that’s not the case today. Honestly I feel 10 out of 10.
“I am a lot more focused than four years ago, I’m preparing myself very much for the first game. Since I got on the plane from England to travel to Argentina and join the group, I have been thinking about the opener against Nigeria.”
