n.— «He is, though, the best hope to become what Argentines refer to as un crack. This is slang for the type of player able to chance the course of a game with a stylish incision, or produce a goal from nothing. Some contend they have not had this type of player since Diego Maradona’s last fling in the 1994 World Cup.» —“Argentina’s new breed can atone for nightmare of four years ago” by Alan Pattullo Scotsman (Glasgow, Scotland) June 10, 2006.
