Lionel Scaloni points out the complications he will face with Argentina in this round of Qualifying

Lionel Scaloni’s team may be closer to qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup after the clashes against Paraguay (Asunción), Uruguay and the Peruvian team (Buenos Aires). Of course, the Argentine team must get the most points to celebrate the move to a new World Cup.

However, the day before, the coach identified the pros and cons of playing again – as happened in September – three games in a few days. In this sense, the coach of the Albiceleste rescued that having a formed group is an advantage, although the time to train together is very short.

I am looking forward to these games because they are important dates and we think we are doing well. There is a base of 80 or 90 percent that is repeated on the campus. That gives you peace of mind, even if you have little time to work. You can always improve, we are not invincible far from it “Scaloni declared.

“Being three games it changes a bit. There are few days to prepare for the next game, especially between the first and the second. We are used to playing Thursday or Friday. The problem is the second game, where you already come with a previous load and you have to prepare it without stopping thinking about the last one, explained the technician in a conversation with the official channel of the selection.

“This of the three dates is something new, but we have a wide call. It is something atypical, especially in South America, where trips are long. Luckily this time we do not have them, but when you have to play far it is a problem, said the 43-year-old coach, who saw as positive playing the clash against Uruguay and Peru in Argentina.

Those absent due to injury

The coach of the Argentine team highlighted the formation of a solid group, with which he won the Copa América in the middle of this year and with which he faces the Qualifiers. However, Scaloni also regretted that important players (such as Sergio Agüero or Paulo Dybala) miss these appointments due to problems with injuries.

“It worries about having injuries. Time goes by and some of us cannot give them continuity. It is very difficult especially because we are consolidated as a group. I would have liked to have Paulo, Sergio, players we want. For one thing or another we have not been able to count on them. It’s a setback, but there are guys who can do the same or even better, he sentenced.
