Argentina to target Robben

09 July 2014, 22:22

Rio de Janeiro - Netherlands winger Arjen Robben could be in for some rough treatment from Argentina during Wednesday’s World Cup semi-final showdown.

Robben has been one of the standout performers in Brazil, netting three goals, providing one assist and generally causing mayhem within opposition defences with his direct and surging runs.

Argentina and Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis, a former team-mate of Robben’s at Bayern Munich, admits the flying Dutchman could pose some serious problems for the South American side.

"He is a phenomenon - it is impossible to know which way he is going to go," Demichelis said.

"So you must attack him, because the more you stand off, the closer he brings you to your own goal and you have less chance against him," he told Clarin.

The 33-year-old central defender went on to suggest that a robust approach from the Argentine defenders may be the only way to unsettle Robben.

"As he does not like physical contact, you must make him feel it - you must rough him up. The Dutch players, especially Robben, must feel the Argentine passion."
