    To : Lionel Scaloni (Nicolas Capaldo to replace Guido Rodriguez tests positive for COVID)

    It is time to give chance (opportunity) to call up Nicolas Capaldo ((right) defensive midfielder/ FC Red Bull Salzburg (Austria)) to replace Guido Rodriguez ((right) defensive midfielder/ Real Betis Balompie (Spain)) in Argentina Senior National Football Team to play in qualification matches of world cup 2022 – Chile versus Argentina (January 28, 2022) and Argentina versus Colombia (February 2, 2022). Guido Rodriguez has tested positive for COVID and will miss Argentina’s World Cup qualifying matches.

    FC Red Bull Salzburg (with Capaldo in FC Red Bull Salzburg) plays in UEFA Champions League this season (2021-2022). FC Red Bull Salzburg already passed group stage. Now in round of 16, FC Red Bull Salzburg will be against FC Bayern Munich.

  2. These 6 should be Argentina midfielder in Qatar
    1 De Paul
    2 Paredes
    3 Lo celso
    4 Guido Rodriguez
    5 Papu Gomez
    6 Manuel Lanzini
    These 6 are world class player Lanzini did not get injure for long time that is good. He should be called in march WC Qualifiers.Meza was called ahead of Lanzini can not understand that. Scaloni should call best player of clubs and Lanzini is one of the best player in West Ham right now.

  3. Btw Sevilla just sign Martial from MU on loan, not sure if they are still after Lo Celso. Not sure if they are that ambitious adding 2 high profile players within days.

  4. According the reports, the probable starting line up is very easy to guess:

    Emi Martinez; Molina, Otamendi, Licha Martinez, Acuna; Paredes, De Paul, Lo Celso; Di Maria, Lautaro, Dybala/Papu/Nico Gonzales.

    1. Scaloni will take it seriously and field his best line up.
    2. Scaloni is one of those coaches who has his own pecking orders, meaning that someone new unless your name is “the next Cristian Romero” or “the next Emiliano Martinez” will not be able to jump straight to the starting line up ahead of his favorite boys.
    3. Or unless he decides to experiment (not using his best line up), but that won’t be the case this time.
    4. If Dybala starts, Lo Celso will play upfront as left winger, Di Maria will stay as right winger. Dybala doing Messi role. If Papu or Nico Gonzales starts then they will be the left winger.

  5. With Guido Rodriguez out , if Scaloni goes with L.Martinez as our CB then there is only one player to fill in for Guido and might even be brought in as a sub for Paredes… MAXI MEZA!!

  6. Another blow for Scaloni, he have to take the 3rd plan in next 2 WCQ games. Don’t expect big win getting 4 points from the next 2 games is good. It’s just like a friendly and experimental match. Hopefully some players show surprised and excellent play.

    RDP,ADM, Martinez, Angel Correa and Gio Simeone might be the stars.
