The President of Conmebol highlighted the presence of Argentina in the semifinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup

He congratulated the ‘albiceleste’. The president of the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol), Alejandro Domínguez, celebrated Argentina’s presence among the top four of the Qatar-2022 World Cup and said he saw Lionel Scaloni’s team “very compact and very powerful.”

“She comes from being the Copa América champion (in 2021). It comes from playing many games and having established itself with a completely new coach”highlighted Domínguez in a statement to the press after an act in tribute to Pelé in downtown Doha.

“I see a very compact and very powerful Argentina, which has all the conditions to fight for the World Cup. He is a candidate”Dominguez added.

Argentina beat the Netherlands on Friday in the quarterfinal penalty shootout and on Tuesday will seek a place in the final with a duel against Croatia, which eliminated Brazil that Friday, the other remaining South American team in contention in the competition. .

It should be noted that Ecuador and Uruguay had been knocked out in the group stage, which reinforces Argentina’s achievement: “South America only has four teams in a World Cup. Having one of four in the final phase is a great merit, only attributable to the Argentine team and we see a very consolidated, very strong Argentina”.

“As South Americans, our hope is that Argentina not only reaches the final but also has the opportunity to lift the cup for the third time.“, he claimed.

On the other hand, Domínguez lamented the fall of Brazil in the quarterfinals against Luka Modric’s team: “Football is won, tied and lost. No game is won before playing it. Say I was surprised? It didn’t surprise me, but as a South American I wanted Brazil to continue because we only have four countries, after the first phase we were left with two and now we are left with one”.
