Argentina’s last practice before Copa America match vs. Uruguay


The Argentina national team trained this morning for the last time before they travel to Brasilia this evening. On Friday, Argentina will face Uruguay in Copa America´s matchday 2 of group B.

During this Thursday morning’s practice at AFA’s training facility in Ezeiza, the squad began exercising in the gym at 10:40 (local time), and then, already on the field, they did some coordination and speed exercies for around 20 minutes. For the last part, the coaching staff set an informal football practice in reduced spaces with three different teams.

According to the AFA’s official website, a press conference is planned for this evening (3:25 PM, local time), where coach Lionel Scaloni plus one Argentine player will answer questions from the media.

At 4 PM, the whole squad will be heading to Ezeiza’s airport, which is just 8 minutes away from Argentina’s training center. The estimated arrival to the city of Brasilia is 7:45 PM today, and they will all have dinner at 9 PM.


  1. I always see the glass half full, this Copa will at least show that some players should not be in the NT team next year. We have a year to decide on players like ADM, Tag, Ota, Paredes, Montiel. At least 5 players who are regular starter don’t deserve to be called. That’s the silver lining of the Copa for us….

  2. i would like to see guido or nico dom get some time in uruguay match… i like both nico also want to see lisandro get some time ..

  3. I hope we line up Like this
    De paul-Paredes-Lo Celso
    Messi-Aguero-Nico Gonzalez

    Honestly I dont know who will go in defense although romero should be MUST.About the two Fullbacks If we want to be a bit conservative towards uruguay then Montiel and Tagli should start but if more attacking its obviously Acuna and molina

    Our Midfield realy is our strength i believe …I hope Lo celso could perform strong in the second half also !!..We have palacios for more creativity and guido for more defensive cover who should be great substitute options if used well…

    In attack i think we should give Aguero the start since lautaro and give him at least 75mins and then depending on his fitness sub him off for lautaro..Nico Should play despite missing so many chances in the chile game..he linked up very well and made great runs ..hopefully his finishing will be on point next time

    there is the option of playing lautaro and aguero ..Lautaro thrives in a front two..despite his recent problems with finishing..he works extremely hard (they dont call him EL Toro for no reason) his effort is invaluable for the team..but its upto the coaching staff in the end..lets hope they get it right VAMOS ARGENTINAAAA!!!!
