Argentina’s opponents for the rest of the year consist of eternal rivals Brazil and long time foe Germany.
Lionel Scaloni has at least two big tests ahead of him this year. While the match against the Basque Country has been cancelled, one thing that is still confirmed is the game against Germany. The rematch of the 2014 FIFA World Cup final is set to take place in Dortmund on the 9th of October.
There is no news yet as to who Argentina could play in the second game in October with the Basque Country match no longer taking place.
For the games in October, coach Lionel Scaloni has already confirmed that he would not be calling up any players from either River Plate or Boca Juniors, seeing as how both teams will be playing against each other in the Copa Libertadores.
Brazil will be one of Argentina’s opponents for November. The match is rumored to be taking place on November 14 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It would be a rematch of one of the 2019 Copa America semi-finals.
The second game in November is rumored to be against Saudi Arabia, although no confirmation for that match.
What a Joke and overrated player is Otamendi..I don’t want to see that imbecile in NT !!!!!!!!! Embarrassment!!!
Your comment is an embarrassment
exactly my friend.
De Paul red carded after a slap on someone’s nape.. LoL. That was some bad boy stuff!
That’s too bad about the card, BUT, his fighting spirit is good to see. He is always sticking up for his teammates and one of the few who takes Argentina and carries it on his back, even when the team is playing poorly.
I hope to see him on a bigger team next year. What a great talent.
Bad boy stutf? More like brainless boy stuff
We need captain like that
Finally a real test and I have the feeling this group is ready to take on top teams.
Buendia 8.9 in Whoscored
Fuck*n english media gave MOTM to Pukki
I just hate English Media..
Buendia was definitely the best player today..However in commentary and post-match, they just ignored him!!
That’s I saw for most of the argentine players.
Even though Aguero is best player for City and scoring lot of goals for many years, they never gave him proper credit, now they found sterling,de bruyne.
My dream is when argentina will play England in WC and thrash them 6-0!!
I also watched the match the commentator was full of praise for Buendia. I agree with aguero’s part.
Really, which stream? Just watched Sky sports, while the Jammy carragher was in full of praise for Pukki and cantwell. Didn’t even mentioned him.
I know their behaviour,that’s why I try to observe them..
next time you guys should do that.
Specially Try Lo celso, Lamela matches
I watched in Ukranian commentary and the commentator said Buendia was phenomenal.
Aguero always city favorite.
I am talking abt British journalists and pundits
Emi Buendía’s game by numbers vs. Man City:
23 duels contested
4 tackles made
3 chances created
We know he is creative but we also can’t overlook his role in pressing and helping in defence + he is a good crosser too
Emiliano Buendía vs Man City
81% pass accuracy
3 key passes
5 dribbles won
4 tackles won
He is performing well against teams like city ,liverpool etc
Don’t know if I project my wishes but I think he has at least more chances to gets call up than Lamela. I prefer Buendia of the two.
Yes ,I think so but unfortunately lamela has been playing since long so chances of lamela is a bit more but I really hope that buendia will get his chance to show his talent against Brazil and Germany
With Lo celso injured, Palacios wont play, Pereyra wont be called . I think Buendia deserves to be called looking his performance.
Absolutely this guy buendia is a gem and if scaloni doesn’t call him than it will be biggest injustice
win by 3 goals is not often case in Argentina league. This time Arsenal did such difference against Union. Nicolas keep his form still. I like Alvarez Suarez and Kaprof too.
I could watch second half only. Union too had great moments. Bonifacio was great to watch at times. Meanwhile Joel Sonora(Alan’s brother) is coming good as sub for Arsenal these days.
Bonifacio was once promising RB in Gimnasia. I didn’t knew Joel is Alan’s brother.
Ex Boca Diego Sonora’s sons they are..
Licha Martinez in midfield again.
How did he perform ?
89% pass success rate, won 3 tackles and 1 shot on target. Did little wrong.
Tagliafico haters are having a wonderful day today. Meanwhile, Rojo did not make MU bench, again!
Yeah, actually Tagliafico is always something more than defener when play for Ajax.
Tagliafico as LB of Argentina is right man in the right place
Lisandro Martinez in front..makes him…go freely in attack.
Even Alvarez is also a defender ,I don’t know why Ajax is playing with double pivots
And people are saying Rojo should be picked over him! 😂
No rojo should not be picked ahead of tagliafico because I don’t believe in picking players who have minimum playing time but that doesn’t mean we should ignore in finding tagliafico’s competitor /backup +he has not done anything exceptionally well for nt
Buendia just took the ball off Otamendi’s foot…LOL
He’s showing his worth in every matches since last season. But it was in second division. Nobody cared..!
Now he continues his form in top division… against champions league contender Man City too. How can Scaloni avoid him for next friendlies..?
With Boca and River players being out of the friendly he has better chances
I doubt he will get chance
I supported Scaloni always. But this is going to be a big test for him. A reality check. Against Brazil and against Germany.
He never managed Argentina against European teams and two times he already failed against Brazil scoring zero goal..!
Total match : 17
Win : 10
Lose : 4
It looks good at first sight when considering he’s building a team. But when you check the opposition, Argentina will win with any manager and with any players..almost any of those matches that Scaloni won…!
Argentina won against Guatemala, Iraq, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Qatar, Venezuela and Chile. Almost all…poor teams.
So I am just considering only the status against South American teams.
Total match : 9
Win : 2
Lose : 4
Total scored: 4
Total conceded: 8
It’s not impressive at all. At least we can say it is improved..as we have won 2 and drawn 2 in the last 5 games.
Eagerly waiting for Scaloni’s performance against Brazil and Germany. It will be a deciding factor for his future.
Against South American teams.
Total scored: 6
Total conceded: 9
Buendia is in excellent form against Manchester City…!
Argentina’s midfield look balanced with palacios…Paredes…lo Celso .
Against Germany Ascacibar or Marcos Senesi in the midfield that is going to be a solid midfield
Love the way Poch has players pressing like crazy and Lamela is great at it
why the hell did dybala not leave juventus. if destroying career was an art then our boys are picasso of it.
Disturbing or interesting choice for a username there Mr Kampf.
