Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni spoke after his team’s match against Brazil was suspended.
The match between Argentina and Brazil has been suspended with players and coaches unhappy about the decision. Five minutes into the World Cup qualifying match between Argentina and Brazil, there were Brazilian health agents who stormed the pitch and the match was stopped.
Lionel Scaloni spoke about the situation after the match. Here is what he had to say:
“I have to defend my players. If people come in and they wanted to take my players, there’s no chance.
“It makes me very sad. I’m not looking for a culprit. If something happened or did not happen, it was not the time to make that intervention.
“At no time were we notified that they could not play the match. We wanted to play the match, the Brazilian players too.”
