Argentina rumored XI, Guido Rodríguez, Emiliano Buendía available


Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni will have Guido Rodriguez and Emiliano Buendia available for Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier.

Lionel Scaloni tested negative for COVID as did the entire team but one person. Alexis Mac Allister is positive for COVID and is the only player who was not available for Scaloni. Guido Rodriguez will be able to play for Argentina in their World Cup qualifying match against Colombia on Tuesday.

Lucas Ocampos and Maxi Meza, who both missed the 2-1 win vs. Chile, trained with the rest of the team. According to Ole, they would be available to start from the bench for Tuesday’s match. Ocampos suffered from an ankle injury but has recovered.

Alejandro Papu Gómez received as knock on his ankle in the 2-1 win vs. Chile and the staff will wait on Papu. Per the article, he did train normally but if he doesn’t start, Buendía would start in his place. Here is the rumored XI:

Emiliano Martínez; Nahuel Molina, Germán Pezzella, Lisandro Martínez, Marcos Acuña; Giovani Lo Celso, Guido Rodríguez, Emiliano Buendía or Alejandro Gómez; Ángel Di María, Lautaro Martínez, Nicolás González or Paulo Dybala.​


  1. Ironically, we have a settled keeper (World Class), settled CBs (World Class)and formidable Full Backs. (Molina, Montiel, Tagliafico and Acuna) We had not have a team like this for like forever. Our attack is always among world’s best. We also have RDP. The stars are aligning to give us a WC. What I would like to see against Columbia is a little twick while keeping the winning balance, to give other players some chances. My new XI for Columbia-


    Also give some minutes to
    Alvarez, MacAllister, Correa and ADM

    • He should honestly as good as he is which is often easily one of the top 10 best footballers of present time, He could never coexist with Messi and inclusion of him probably does not make the team any better……

  2. I really would like Montiel play ahead of Molina next match. G.Montiel has been performing beyond our expectations ever since he was promoted to Sevilla’s starting xi when Navas got injured. He deserves to play the next match and also I would like Juailan Alvarez start ahead of Lautaro. Additionally, Dybala seriously needs to be played a full match. Papu is not 100% fit, this is the best time to play Dybala even if that means Dimaria needs to be rested or be played on the left side. FIFA rankings for the world cup has already been decided so there is no point not giving our reserves good amount of time on the pitch. Winning streak only matters if we can win the world cup , if we end up like 2002 then these winning streaks are as useless as FIFA rankings in a non world cup year!!

  3. now Guido is back and Papu’s injury isn’t that serious, I really want to see some new stuff like Dybala as false 9 and Julian Alvarez with Correa on each side in attack, and keep papu as the attacking midfielder. Scaloni should give some playing time to subs I think Dybala is brilliant when he plays with 2 wingers and 1 attacking midfielder behind him
