Scaloni took the last 180 minutes of the year to deepen his idea. Its managers knew how to maximize opportunities.
Argentina's national team closed 2018 much better than what could have been expected a few months ago. While there is still uncertainty as to who will be the coach next year, the mood in Albicleste is very different from Russia's first week of the world and the merit of starting this small process of recovery and replacement is all Lionel Scaloni and its coaching staff.
Although for most people, the last two victories of the year against Mexico, in Córdoba and Mendoza, does not mean much, the truth is that both the coach and his managers took full advantage of these 180 minutes and took some positive conclusions:
- SCALONI HAS ADDED THE POINTS WHICH HAVE FAILED. Undoubtedly, this FIFA date in November was the most useful for the coach, who managed to deepen his idea and demonstrate that he wanted to take the interim process for being ratified as coach of the national team. "We want this to continue," Dybala said after his first friend. Will they listen to the players?
- DEACTIVATION OF ICARDI AND DYBAL. As the coach pointed out after the game ended, the benefits of the Juventus and Inter in Serie A numbers pulled off the jack and shouted for the first time with a blue and white shirt. They appear as two of the national team's referees coming.
- Those who can not lose. Funes Mori and Kannemann have confirmed that they should start fixing in the following calls. Both they and Acuña and Saravia, to a lesser extent, were among the highest points in Argentina in these games.
- SURPRISE IN ARC. Gazzaniga, the little-known goalkeeper, made an official presentation with a pair of more than exciting save. Tottenham's footballer gave him half an hour to show his reflexes. He took the chance.
- A name to consider. Foyth, the 20-year-old midfielder who also plays in Pochettino Spurs, had an extraordinary performance and was the figure of the field in his debut in the national team. "We are talking about a great center with a lot of future, it was a bet to make it play and solve it very well," praised Scaloni.
