Lionel scaloni He spoke after the 2-2 draw between the Argentine National Team and Colombia for the sixth round of the Qualifiers, rescuing the team’s effort and maintaining that its players “deserved to return with the three points.”
“Unfortunately we came back with a point when we deserved all three. My players have made a huge effort. They are the first who want things to go well,” said the coach.
Argentina dominated on the scoreboard until the last minute of the game, but was outmatched in several sections of the game. However, the DT assured that the Selection imposed conditions.
“Argentina always dominates the game, sometimes in a more vertical way. If you look at each match in the Qualifiers we have deserved to win, but in football merits do not count,” added Scaloni.
In addition, Rodrigo De Paul and Emiliano Martínez, who was replaced after suffering a severe blow to the head, spoke after the match in Barranquilla.
All statements from the press conference:
“Today we had a lot of complications to put together the team. There were players who we knew they weren’t going to be able to play the whole game because they came from injuries. Now we hope to get everyone back”
“I’m better, it was a hard blow. The doctors did their job. Obviously I wanted to continue playing but they had to remove me because I lost consciousness.
Rodrigo De Paul
“The feelings are good. Unfortunately in the last play they tied us, but the balance is positive. We face a great rival.”
“I think we had the opportunities. They have a great goalkeeper. We are not happy with the draw because we have the idea of being protagonists in all fields”
