JULIAN Speroni says he didn't get a chance to speak to some of Manchester City's Argentinian players about going to the World Cup on Sunday. The custodian is hoping to receive a call-up for his country after a string of top performances this season. Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis and Sergio Aguero look set to be on the plane to Brazil and all featured for City in their 2-0 win at Selhurst Park on Sunday. Speroni said: "I just wish them all the best. I hope to be there but if I'm not, I wish them well. "I didn't speak to them about Argentina and the World Cup, we spoke for a little bit but not about the national side. We didn't have the time really. "Manchester City are a massive team and we were so unlucky to concede so early in the game. "Everything turned uphill, especially against a team who can keep the ball like they do. "In the second half we did a little bit better and we had some chances. We always talk about being solid at the start of each game and to be switched on. "We made one mistake and that's it, 1-0." Yaya Toure extended City's lead shortly before the break with a well-placed finish after a storming run against Damien Delaney. And Speroni admitted City's ability to keep the ball was a major factor on the day. "I tried to close the angle for the second goal but he (Toure) picked his spot and put it right there," added the keeper. "I watched the ball all the way, it wasn't a hard shot, it was just placed perfectly and he's a top player. "They played the strongest team they had available, with Zabaleta, Aguero, Toure – whoever they pick, it's a strong team. "They were in control, they keep the ball and pass it around. It was so hard to take it from them."
