  1. Hi all, me and my son have tickets, this will be the first time in 2 attempts my son will get to see his hero, meaning Messi.
    A shout out to all who maybe in attendance and are on this site. It would be nice to see faces if permitted. So if anyone is there from here, I will be on block 524 row 27.

  2. Scaloni would be aware of that Ecuador match. I mean even with the presence of Messi they locked de paul. But today we have lo celso who is looking like hitting his prime. Now he regained his confidence. But lo celso playing in the right side looking more creative in passes and and dribbling of the ball. Comfortable running with his left leg from the right side and cutting inside and utilising the spaces available. From the left side he is creative but sometimes look like out of position in what to do next especially in that last Uruguay and Brazil match.

  3. This match will be interesting 50-50 chance for both the teams. Argentina has far better attack while Italy has better midfield. If lisandro and Romero not fit thn its advantage Italy

        • They wont score more than one even with total midfield domination, i highly doubt, this is not Spain. And we will score at least one, so imo 1:1 is the best case scenario for them, no extra time is a huge blow, penalties is a coin flip

  4. 16 year old Gianluca Prestianni made his debut for Velez in their 4-0 libertadores win over Estudiantes. 2nd youngest debutant in Argentine football after Aguero.
    Prestianni is part of the u 17 set up and had a good tournament in France where Argentina lost the final 2-1 against Brazil.
    He was the most skillful Player on the pitch against Brazil even though a Brazilian 16 year old stole the show by scoring a fluke goal and winning a clumsy penalty. This Brazilian kid has since been snapped by Barca.

    • Nobody remembers the looser no matter how brilliant you are. Winning by hook or crook what matters most. 2006 argentine team was fantastic bt as we didn’t win many players like mbappe blabbering that conmebal is weaker than europe and bla bla

    • I watched the second half of the game today, Prestianni was incredible. His pace and ability to dribble past experienced players in his debut at the age of 16 was almost shocking. Velez seem to have a new generation with him, Perrone (who also made an impressive assist if you check the first goal), and Castro plus some other lesser knowns. Really excited to see what happens with Prestianni, I still want to see how good his playmaking is

  5. A good selection and the teams are build in form together since the last Copa. They have a clear crystal target and vision. Hopefully things goes well. No injury and fully fit up to December

  6. Lisandro Martínez, the best defender in Europe according to WhoScored.

    The statistics portal WhoScored has given it the highest score of the 11 major European leagues.

    This 2021/22 season, Lisandro Martínez has had a magnificent season, being rewarded by WhoScored, a renowned statistical measurement portal, which has named him the best central defender in the 11 major European leagues, after finishing the season with a rating of 7’64.
    The Argentine central defender of Ajax is already a fundamental piece in the Dutch capital as a whole, having been a cornerstone this season in the achievement of the Eredivisie, which the Amsterdam team celebrated just a week ago.

    He has played 24 league games, with one goal scored, 3 assists, 89% accuracy in passes, 71% aerial duels won and 292 recoveries.
    Lisandro rounds off 12 perfect months, in which he has won two league titles and a cup with Ajax, and in terms of selection he was able to lift the long-awaited Copa América. Will he make the jump to one of the big leagues this year in Europe?

    What a defender, this guy deserves to play big league In order to show his wonderful talent, I hope he moves in summer to elp, la liga or Seria A.
