Argentina news from training, 6 vs. 6 tournament, barbecue on a relaxed Sunday


The Argentina national team had a relaxed practice this Sunday morning at AFA’s training facility in Ezeiza, thinking about next Thursday’s World Cup qualifier against Chile. Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni organized a workout with some exercises with the ball, followed by 6 vs. 6 matches which ended with a big group barbecue on a sunny but cold day in Buenos Aires province.

Lionel Messi’s team made up of Juan Musso, Nicolás Otamendi, Nahuel Molina, Nicolás Tagliafico and Rodrigo De Paul were the winners of the 6 vs. 6 tournament. Here are some pictures from Sunday’s practice, via the Argentina Twitter account:


  1. correa/foyth romero lisandro acuna
    baundia depaul paredes loccelso/ocampos
    messi —————nico/ lautaro

    i like to try this squad

    right side will be super creative with correa baundia messi, left will speedstar with ocampos,nico
    both correa baundia has defensive instinct

  2. Argentina needs new faces for central defenders. Right now for me there is only C. Romero who is near world class defender.Juan Foyth is also near world class but one or two names are not enough to be champion.

  3. It’s tournament time, I’m back !
    I am hearing from local news that Armani will not be starting as gk…for all those who dislike him as a starter
    According to local rumors, the only position up for question is rb, still waiting in filth or montiel I believe.
    Also, it looks like dimaria will start as a right midfielder in a 4-4-2 scheme. I think this time around di maria will show his futbol and make believers out of those who think he shouldn’t play. Or I hope at least.
    My only disappointment is that it looks to be that otamendi will retain his starting position.
