Changes in Argentina’s last training session, kick off time for qualifier


Changes were made in Argentinas’s last training session before travelling to Ecuador for the World Cup qualifying match.

Gerónimo Rulli was the goalkeeper in training and with no Emiliano Martinez and Scaloni stating that there could be changes, it would be between Rulli and Juan Musso as the goalkeeper. Per Gastón Edul, Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni made several changes in the last training.

Lionel Scaloni made changes not only to the goalkeeper but for the defenders. Lucas Martínez Quarta started in place of Germán Pezzella. This could mean that instead of the rumored Juan Musso and Germán Pezzella starting for Argentina against Ecuador, it could be Rulli and Martínez Quarta.

While being rumored to start on Monday, Ángel Di María no longer looks set to start. It would be either Nicolás González or Ángel Correa with reports in the media leaning more towards Correa starting. Here is the rumored eleven:

Musso or Rulli; Montiel, Pezzella or Martínez Quarta, Otamendi, Tagliafico; De Paul, Guido, Palacios or Mac Allister; Messi, Julián Álvarez and Nicolás González or Ángel Correa.

Argentina play Ecuador on Tuesday and here are the kick off times:


  1. Happy Eliminatorias day, MA Fam!!
    Guys- any legit links that anyone can possibly share would be greatly appreciated.
    Futbolibre seems to have too much traffic now, very difficult to stream the game on there..

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    Vamos Argentina CARAJO!!!

  2. Guys today i have a feeling that North Macedonia will knock Portugal out of world cup and to make it worse for CR, Messi will finally win World Cup and Another ballon dor.

  3. No problem with emis back up. Rulli or musso who ever it is both are eligible. Angel correa and Alvarez if included in the first 11 then make full use of it. This attack gives promise. Alvarez is a better finisher than j correa. Angel correa is more lethal than Nico in attack and finishing in the final third. But atlast it’s all in the hands of scaloni. Waiting for a perfect selection.
