Lionel Scaloni: "The desire of these guys is incredible and I am proud to train them"

After defeating Uruguay 1-0 and getting closer to qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the Argentine National Team coach, Lionel Scaloni spoke through a virtual press conference.

Here are the best phrases of the Argentine coach:

“The changes were thought in the game. It was very difficult to play it, it was almost to get qualification. Sometimes you need to win and today we get it. Surely not playing well, but it counts.”

“It was an option to put Lisandro (Martínez) and form a line of five, but we opted for Exequiel (Palacios) and keep the scheme.”

“It was a game that we needed to make a leap as a team. Sometimes you can’t play well because the opponent proposes a style of play and we adapt to the game that took place. That is a good sign, important as a team.”

“The key was in the goal; they also had but they did not specify. Regarding Leo (Messi), we decided that he did not play because he came from inactivity, and his entry in the second half helps him to gain rhythm in the face of the game with Brazil “.

“I am proud of what we are doing. One enters and another leaves, the team does not suffer. You know what I think of this group. The desire of these guys is incredible and I am proud to coach them.”

“From the bottom we came out well, that was not the problem. In the middle of the court it was not so fluid. That is where we got stuck because they pressed well.”

“I was not surprised by the pressure from Uruguay, they have players to do it. But we should have been finer from the midfield forward.”

“They needed points and go out to find the game; that’s why they ran, pressed and didn’t let us play. We had to find spaces, filter passes to be able to generate play.”
