“The situation with some players is not ideal. In some positions, we have doubts about the physical condition of some players.

“We have to cover ourselves in some way to make the final decision later. That’s why we have extra players.

“There are some players we need to evaluate due to their physical conditions.”

Scaloni was also asked about Lionel Messi:

“We see him well. It was an important for him to have continuity after his injury, he looks ready.

“He will join us tomorrow and we’ll talk more.”

The coach was also asked about Julián Álvarez and Lautaro Martínez:

“In recent months, Julián has played less but he had his matches in a strong team and Lautaro was the top scorer in Serie A.

“They are both welcome and we will decide game by game, as we always do.”
