Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI confirmed Lionel MESSI’s inclusion in the Copa America team.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, the Argentina coach commented on his squad while also confirming MESSI’s presence for the Copa America. Here’s what he had to say:
“In principle, having him these days was just maximum. He was involved very well and we saw him very involved. It’s obvious that he will be there and we will surely work to achieve a team.
“We know that we are in time’s of change. The logical thing would be that MESSI comes to a team that’s together. We have time to correct that and we will.”
Lionel SCALONI spoke about the team and the present:
“I am totally convinced that in the future, this will bear fruit. There are matches that you could lose but you have take positives from them. Logically, we don’t like to lose. But one match does not change our perspective of the future.
“I think the most important thing is to be able to find the contribution that each player brings to the pitch. I think it’s much more important than the system.”
SCALONI also stated that much of the Copa America list is completed.
“I think we have about 80% of the list for the Copa America. We have to work so that the players aren’t always attracted and looking to pass the ball to MESSI. There are three or four spots that we still have to see but the rest we have.”
Talking about Argentina’s opponents on Tuesday, here’s what he had to say:
“Morocco are a good team who showed some teeth at the World Cup. It’s a good test for us.”
