Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni commented on the team’s 1-0 win vs. Peru while also discussing personal issues.
Lionel Scaloni coached his team to a 1-0 win vs. Peru in their third of three World Cup qualifying matches in October. Scaloni spoke to the press after the match. Here is what he had to say:
“Today, you could feel the fatigue a little. Playing three matches in South America takes its toll on you. We took it forward and we got the three moments, which is what we wanted.
“It was a very important match and there was tension. I don’t think Argentina are satisfied with the result. Peru played well, they’re a very difficult opponent. Beyond the penalty, I think the game was controlled.”
Scaloni also mentioned personal issues:
“The first thing I want to do is go home, I haven’t seen my family in a long time. I’m not going through a good family situation to be thinking about the World Cup. I want to go, these past few months have been very difficult, I don’t want to know anything else.
“These three matches ended today and we will see what we will do. They were very difficult moments for me and for my family. I’m not able to think about the World Cup. It doesn’t interest me at all.”
