Diego's des 'rez

Jonas Gutierrez's chances of going to the World Cup were boosted by another 90 minutes for his country on Wednesday, his Argentina side pulling off a 1-0 friendly win in Germany - no mean feat. The fact that he appears to be a fixture in the national side despite only coming up against Championship defenders in his day job suggests that manager Diego Maradona really rates him.

Gutierrez certainly had a more successful stint of international duty than three other members of our squad: Bigger Lad played as England U21 went down 2-1 at home to group leaders Greece in a European Championships qualifier; Leon Best came on as a sub and fluffed a good chance in Brazil's 2-0 victory over the Republic of Ireland; and Tamas Kadar was red-carded for Hungary U21 as they went down by the same scoreline in Italy.
