Edgardo BAUZA commented on the team’s victory against Uruguay.
With one match and a win now under his belt, Edgardo BAUZA commented on the match against Uruguay. He spoke about DYBALA’s red card, Lionel MESSI’s injury and more. Here’s what he had to say:
“With 11 players, we were dominating the game with the ball possession and were making the difference. With a player less, we still contained them. We were missing a bit on the counter attack, nothing more. We’ve won a match that is always difficult. Uruguay’s a very tough rival.”
“We will know about MESSI in the next 48 hours. But we won’t risk him. If MESSI’s good, I don’t think we’ll change the formation. We have two or three substitutes for DYBALA. MESSI had a great match despite the pain.”
“We were playing a very smart first half. After the red card to DYBALA, the match just changed. From a tactical point of view, BIGLIA and MASCHERANO played a great game. We had to try and calm DYBALA down after his red card. He was having a good match.”
“To be in first place (in the World Cup Qualifying table) is a positive thing but we’re still far from our objective, which is to qualify for the World Cup. In this competition, it’s very difficult to score a lot of goals. The most important are the 3 points. We’re go back and watch the match. Surely we’ll see some things we would want to improve. But I’m happy with the 1-0.”
