The coach of the Argentine team, Lionel Scaloni, did not want to give the starting team for this Thursday’s match against Peru, at the Monumental, for the South American Qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup 2022, and remarked that “the idea is to improve depending on the rival” while adding: “We do not think about the damage that rivals are going to do us, but about how we can grow as a team.”
“I know that winning and the result is important, but there are other things that are also very important such as representing the shirt, not giving anything up for lost.. The players are the representation of the fans on the court. These players are not going to let us down. We will lose or win, but they will leave everything and people will always feel identified, “said DT within hours of facing Peru.
In this context, the coach did not confirm the team, although he indicated that he will respect the base that played against Paraguay and Uruguay. That is to say that Messi, Lautaro Martínez, De Paul, Paredes, Draw Martínez, Otamendi and Cuti Romero are numbers placed after their very good performances.
“If the team works and gives us positive signals, we don’t have to tweak so much. I ask them not to relax because all their teammates train to play. Let no one think that he is the owner ”, he clarified.
As for the rival, the coach pointed out that Peru is a team that plays well and that they will surely dispute the possession of the match: “They do not back down and face matches always in the same way.”
BEFORE BRAZIL, IN SAN JUAN
Secondly, Scaloni pointed out that they are very happy with the Monumental and the playing field: “It’s very similar to what kids play in Europe.” Nevertheless, He stressed that the game against Brazil, in the November window, will be in the province of San Juan since “the idea is that everyone can enjoy the National Team.”
