This compilation of players could have other combinations aimed at the inside trio. For example, Labruna could be placed as a left insider, thus Moreno would be placed as a right insider, and Pedernera would be the centre-forward. In such a way, the team would follow the inside trio of La Máquina. However, other formations could be used in this compilation, due to the high versatility of players like José Manuel Moreno and Adolfo Pedernera. In addition, of course, to the inclusion of Norberto Méndez and Rinaldo Martino. Another option would also be the young Alfredo Di Stéfano.

Moreno Pedernera

The choice for such an inside trio compilation is simple: René Pontoni was preferable as centre-forward, as he has always been so for the National Team and was not as versatile as Pedernera. Furthermore, the two insiders — Moreno and Pedernera — acted like this when they had another centre-forward leading the advances — aka the 1942 South American Championship, when Masontonio was at the center of the attack.
