Heinze Calls for Focus

Gaby Heinze has called for his team-mates to concentrate on their next match, and no the up-and-coming 'Clasico' with Barcelona in a few weeks time.

Gaby told the official website: "We have to win all matches up until the Barcelona game, which is the crucial point as it enables us to cut the gap directly. We cannot rely on Barcelona not winning their matches.

"It is our duty to do what we do, which is winning. We just have to win and win, and expect them to lose points," he said. "This is the only work that remains until the end of the season."

Heinze: Altitude No Excuse

Gabriel Heinze has insisted that he will not use the altitude for their match against Bolivia as an excuse.

Whilst the game was played at 3,500 feet abovge sea level, Heinze feels that it would be wrong to use this to explain their shocking 6-1 defeat against Bolivia.

"We know what playing in the altitude implies, that it isn't easy, but we won't make this our excuse because our rivals were very superior to us, and we didn't do things well," said Heinze.
