Alfio Basile

The controversial Alfio Basile

Alfio Basile is an Argentinian former footballer and manager. He reached the top of his fame as a coach. In general, his coaching career lasted between 1975 and 2012, taking charge of multiple squads in Argentina and in other countries. Currently, sports betting is available on 1xBet, and users will be able to find excellent opportunities on lots of different Argentinian competitions.
During the 1970s and the 1980s, Basile took charge of many squads in Argentina and Uruguay. However, the biggest opportunity of his life came when he was offered the job as coach of the Argentinian national team. This part of Basile’s career would have a lot of ups and downs. Right now, on the 1xBet platform, it is possible to see that there are opportunities available for making sports betting on the Argentinian team.

A brilliant spell overshadowed by a catastrophe
Basile coached Argentina on two separate occasions. The first one was between 1991 and 1994. During those years he won multiple titles with the national team. When visiting, it will be possible to find tons of chances to wager on the Albiceleste.
Some of these trophies included:

  • an Artemio Franchi;
  • a FIFA Confederations Cup;
  • and two Copa América titles.

However, not everything was as good as it seemed from outside. Diego Armando Maradona was a notable absence from the squad. Apparently, he had had a dispute with Basile, who decided not to select him.

A catastrophic episode in Basile’s career happened during the qualifiers for the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Colombia visited Argentina, and both squads can be wagered on the 1xBet platform. Back then, many thought that it would be an easy victory for the Argentinian squad. However, Colombia defeated their opponents 5-0. This is one of the most painful defeats in the history of the squad.

Basile’s “feats”
Basile returned to coach the Argentinian team between 2006 and 2008. This time, his job was to qualify his team for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. All the matches of all the editions of the FIFA World Cup are featured at the website.

However, that process was a very difficult one. There were two important events that took place on those qualifiers that eventually prevented Basile from being the coach in the World Cup itself.

Specifically, in that instance, Paraguay defeated Argentina for the first time in official matches. But that was not all, because later in the qualification process, Chile also did the same. Paraguay, Argentina and Chile are only three of the hundreds of football teams where fans can wager at the 1xBet website.

As a famous Argentinian newspaper wrote the day after Argentina’s defeat against Chile, this was “another Basile feat”.
