Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni spoke about the team’s 2-0 loss vs. Uruguay.
Lionel Scaloni lost his first match as Argentina coach since the 2-1 defeat against Saudi Arabia at the World Cup. The coach gave an interview to TyC Sports after the match. Here is what he had to say:
“The truth is that it was a match where we were never comfortable. They deserved to win, no doubt. We never found our way, that is the truth. We tried to correct it in the second half with some changes but it seems that it was not our day. But I repeat, it is their merit for the way they played.
“I would have to think about it a lot or watch the match but in the short time that passed, I think they were better, that is the reality. We were not in the match and then will, I will be able to analyze, looking at the development but the opponent sometimes plays and we have to congratulate them. The truth is that they were better.”
Scaloni also spoke about the match against Brazil on Tuesday:
“A very difficult match is coming. We will try our best. I think this team has shown that it can get out of difficult situations. Here, we lose and win as a team, there is no other way. Sometimes you have to give credit to the opponent. We cannot think that just because we are world champions we will never lose.
“We are not unbeatable, I have said it and I will continue to say it. The player feels back up by the support of the people, I hope it will always be like that.”
