Ángel Di María, Messi’s partner, with more prominence than Leo

The World Cup Qatar 2022 demands the presence of the figures and Ángel Di María is one of those that Argentina has to continue with the dream of advancing to the round of 16. The author of the goal that gave him the 2021 Copa América must now shine in the World Cup.

With Lionel Messi very marked, Ángel Di María is the Argentine key to overcome a Mexico that feels satisfied with the 0-0 in Lusail, since they will then have the chance to qualify against Saudi Arabia on the last date.

He did not have a good match against Saudi Arabia in the first match of ‘Noodle’ – just two shots, one on target and another blocked. But more than that, he was concerned that he would reach 82% accuracy in the passes, since clarity is needed in attack.

In the first half of the Argentina-Mexico game, Di María achieved an 83% pass success rate and four of his 5 dribbles were successful. With Leo tied up, the Noodle is the key.

Lionel Messi barely had three attempts to face, but only managed to overcome his rivals once. What Leo is trying the most is to be a game organizer, that’s why the 88% of successes in the passes.

Both Messi and Di María are the Argentines with the most world cups. Leo adds his fifth World Cup while the Fideo adds his fourth World Cup date. They must make it weigh against Mexico.
