This large group left around midnight on Sunday for the Qatari capital and after making a stopover on Monday in Madrid continued journey to qatar, which completed almost a whole day of flight, since at 9:30 p.m. tonight in Argentina (3:30 p.m. Tuesday local time). he finally arrived at Doha.
Throughout the tour Scaloni he remained expectantly waiting for the medical report announced by the club Villarreal on Lo Celsobut the hours passed and from Spain No news arrived, neither encouraging nor of the others, and the uncertainty is still alive, with all the bad but also with a pinch of good that this entails.
That is why his loss, for the group stage in principle, but for the entire contest, will be very sensitive for the albiceleste team’s progress, since the coach will have to remodel the middle zone with some little improvisation and nothing worked on.
It can range from right-handed income Alexis MacAllister, Exequiel Palacios either Enzo Fernandez even something newer like resorting to a line of three in the background with Lisandro Martinezexcellent season in the Man Utdbeside Christian Romero Y Nicholas Otamendileaving Rodrigo DePaul Y Leandro Paredes forming the “double five”. Thus, the rest would have nothing to touch.
But that’s for these hours, along with the relief from the recoveries of paulo dybala (the most committed after Lo Celsowhich could reappear in the Rome on sunday in front of Turin), Angel Di Mariathe “Cuti” Rosemary and to a lesser extent John Foythwhich due to its polyfunctionality Scaloni will wait until the last moment to bring nine defenders (yesterday he already went to the bench in Villarreal), the only and great problem that the Argentine coach has on his hands.
And while this is resolved, Scaloni continued to shorten the previous list and reduced it from yesterday’s 32 to today’s 28, leaving defenders in a “reserve” platoon Facundo Medina Y Nehuen Perezthe archer John Musso and the striker Thiago Almada.
In this way, to reach the final 26, if you finally wait for Lo Celso It is unsuccessful, there will only be one cut left for the Argentine coach, and all the tickets for it would have been bought by the striker of Atletico Madrid, Angel Strap.
It’s that skeleton you have in mind Scaloni for the final list of 26 components, it is made up of three goalkeepers, nine defenders, seven midfielders and the same number of forwards.
For now, the 28 that are still in the race for the World Cup today are these:
Archers: Emiliano Martinez, Geronimo Rulli and Franco Armani.
Defenders: Nahuel Molina, Gonzalo Montiel, Cristian Romero, Germán Pezzella, Nicolás Otamendi, Lisandro Martínez, Marcos Acuña, Nicolás Tagliafico and Juan Foyth.
Midfielders: Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Giovani Lo Celso, Alexis Mac Allister, Guido Rodríguez, Alejandro Gómez, Enzo Fernández and Exequiel Palacios.
Forwards: Lionel Messi, Ángel Di María, Lautaro Martínez, Julián Álvarez, Paulo Dybala, Nicolás González, Joaquín Correa and Ángel Correa.
