Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes arrive with Argentina team


Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes have landed and are with the Argentina national team.

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni now has all 30 players at his disposal, following the arrival of the three PSG players. The first two players who arrived to Venezuela with the coaching staff were Franco Armani and Julian Alvarez. After that came the European based players who landed on Monday.

The Copa America champions will train on Tuesday before training once more on Wednesday prior to playing Venezuela on Thursday. Argentina will then play Brazil in Sao Paulo on Sunday before playing at home vs. Bolivia next Thursday.


  1. The team should consider the Copa Win as a new journey and not a destination. Venezuela would be a tough match and we are in a precarious situation in the group. Venezuela can get rough on the pitch and the players might try to play safe as the club season is just beginning.

  2. Yes, i think pretty much maybecthe same as Copa final exept those 2 missing, but i would give Molina chance ahead of Montiel this time and also Quarta ahead of Pezzella, but most propably it would be as u said it that Scaloni will use Pezzella ahead of Quarta and most probaply Montiel over Molina who, though is in good form as many of our players been so far at the beginning of this new season after that Great Copa victory !

  3. First match vs Venezuela. Cuti Romero and Leo Paredes are suspended. I don’t expect many changes from our winning team in Copa America. Pezzella should replace Cuti and Guido replacing Paredes and the rest should be what we saw in Copa America final.

    Anyway, Tagliafico to West Ham not done yet. Let’s see in the coming hours.

    • I doubt it will be the same line up as the copa final, Acuna and Molina will replace Tagliafico and Montiel because:
      1. The former 2 have played while the latter 2 haven’t or played very little (Tag played 1 match).
      2. Both Montiel and Tag are on yellow cards.

      Scaloni is also unlikely to go with a 4-4-2 against Venezuela, he’ll save that conservative line up for Brazil and will revert to his favored 4-3-3 formation.
