Argentina national team staff attend Saudi Arabia vs. Panama game


Members of the Argentina national team staff attended Saudi Arabia’s game vs. Panama on Thursday.

Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni had Walter Samuel, Pablo Aimar, Roberto Ayala and Matías Manna in attendance to scout their opening game opponents. At the time of writing, the score is 1-1 with the game being played at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

It’s Argentina vs. Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on November 22 in their opening game at the World Cup.


  1. They look relaxed (or is a jetlag :-)). Under Bielsa’s supervision the analysis and observations involved a lot of work. He had about 10 pages of details on each player including the 2nd and 3rd keeper. Did help us much in 2002 though.

    Be sure that our European opponents know exactly how our players take penalties (% in left bottom corner, % right top corner etc.) Hope we have the same info on our opponents. No 2006 Lehmann like situations please.

  2. If saudi Arabia knows they are watching them they will try to fool them. They wouldn’t play to their full potential. Is better to just watch their qualifying campaign or competition games and analyze their playing systems.
