Lionel Scaloni spoke about Argentina’s 2-0 win vs. Peru and the upcoming World Cup qualifying matches against Uruguay and Brazil.
“The second half was more of the same. We were limited by having been left with only one window (to make a substitution) when Cuti went out and we only had one more window with many minutes and some with physical problems. We were limited by that and the team was able to solve it.
“What these two matches have left me with is the desire to keep competing, to not fall asleep, to keep wanting to win and that is the best thing. Those who are out there want to play, they contribute and that is important. Everyone is pulling in the same direction and going for the same cause.
“It is gratifying to see them like this, especially because they have understood the message: Life goes on and you have to keep competing. You can win or lose, but form is the most important thing.”
About the matches against Uruguay and Brazil in November:
“We will face them in the same way, they are two very tough matches and we have to play them. The most important thing is to keep playing the same way, knowing that the opponents will make it difficult for us but it will be a nice fixture to enjoy.”
