Lionel Messi, Emiliano Martinez, others named in IFFHS CONEMBOL Team of the Year


Lionel Messi along with Emiliano Martinez, Cristian Romero, Rodrigo De Paul and Lautaro Martinez have been named in the IFFHS CONMEBOL Team of the Year.

The five Copa America champions with Argentina made the starting XI with Filipe Luis, Marquinhos, Mauricio Isla, Luis Diaz, Neymar and Gabiriel Barbosa making up the rest of the team. In addition, Julian Alvarez, who was also part of the Argentina team that won the Copa America makes the substitutes bench as does Ignacio Fernandez.

Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni was named as the coach of the year.


    • I think Di Maria should play deeper in the national team, if Scaloni keeps his 4312 then Di Maria should play with De Paul and Paredes behind Messi. He would be better in this position. To me, nobody in this world(including Messi) can launch the counter attack better than him, I saw lot of assists of him for Mbappe in fast transition during the past 3 years.
