It is almost a fact that Calama will be the venue where the Chilean National Team will host Argentina on January 27 for the South American Qualifiers, something that is not liked very much on trans-Andean soil, as the AFA assured that the Red does not need to take advantage of the height and the press of that country described it as a “trick” of the nationals.
However, the sports director of the National Team, Francis Cagigao, lowered his profile and assured that this is not the main issue to want to play in the northern city.
“There is a determination on our part and in the next 24 hours there must be a final resolution. When a determination of this type is made, it is not to seek advantage, since we have two games, the second is in La Paz and there are difficulties to play there. If we can have an adaptation phase, even if it is minimal, and work in Calama, it can give us a better adaptation, “acknowledged Cagigao.
“It is not just about taking advantage in the first game, which could be minimal, those who come from Europe have to adapt to the first game in whatever way and that is for both teams,” he added.
In addition, he maintained that it is pending “to see the sports logistics, since I visited Calama at the end of February convinced that we could prepare the match with Ecuador there, but then it was suspended. On the other hand, we await the final resolution of both the airport and the stadium. itself. The feelings are positive in the sense that everything will be ready to play there. “
