Scaloni, on the training against Uruguay
“I’m going to decide the team this afternoon, but in general terms it is the one that has been playing and I don’t think there will be many changes,” he declared at a press conference.
He still doesn’t think about Brazil
“We are not thinking about Brazil because we have Uruguay before us, which is a tremendously difficult opponent. We plan to do our best, it is game by game. Brazil will be after Uruguay, the important game is the next one.”
Lionel Messi’s present
“He’s fine, he’s training normally. He is fit even though he played a game in the last 25 days.”
About the call of Pablo Maffeo and Francisco Ortega
“Maffeo seems like an interesting option to us. We know him and we believed that it was the opportunity to bring him. The same with Pancho, we know him, we had him in youth. We have to look at players for the future.”
