The Argentine National Team would present some changes to face Colombia, next Tuesday for the South American Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, because it has already recovered some players who had physical problems and this Saturday it will know the results of the swabs for COVID-19.
Of the seven footballers who did not even travel to Santiago del Estero due to different conditions, Diego Monroig detailed in SportsCenter what is the current situation of each.
The main variant that the Albiceleste XI could have would be in the arc: if Franco Armani’s swab is negative, it could regain its place and displace Draw Martínez. River Plate No. 1 could not be last Thursday because his tests continued to be positive. The same is the case of Gonzalo Montiel, who would start on the right side for Juan Foyth.
Nicolás Otamendi, fulfilled the suspension date, and is ready to return to defense as first center-back and there could be a movement in the rear, with Cuti Romero who would run to the left instead of Lucas Martínez Quarta, who did not have a game against Chile.
In the midfield, Giovani Lo Celso is training on par and is an option with Exequiel Palacios for Lucas Ocampos if Scaloni retakes a line of three with Leandro Paredes and Rodrigo De Paul. And he would keep the lead of three men.
In this way, a probable eleven from Argentina would be: Franco Armani or Emiliano Martínez; Juan Foyth or Gonzalo Montiel, Nicolás Otameni, Cristian Romero, Nicolás Tagliafico; Palacios o Lo Celso, Leandro Paredes and Rodrigo De Paul; Ángel Di María, Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martínez.
Argentina will visit Colombia in Barranquilla, on Tuesday from 20:00.
