Lionel Scaloni and his coaching staff preferred not to appear at the intimate campus celebrations. The aims of the blue-and-white coach continue, as well as allowing you to have fun and get excited during these festive days. In this Monday’s morning training, after Sunday rest, the Pujato-born DT will design the team that will face the Curaçao team, who just lost 2-0 against Canada in the Concacaf Nations League.
Lionel Messi will start again in Santiago del Estero. But Scaloni’s idea is to change some names to balance the minutes of the majority in this FIFA window. That is why this Tuesday from 20:30 in the Madre de Ciudades stadium, which will have 42,000 spectators, players such as Gonzalo Montiel, Germán Pezzella, Lisandro Martínez, Marcos Acuña, Leandro Paredes and Lautaro Martínez, who started on Thursday against Panama substitute bench.
They are an important part of this cycle and they all played a key role in Qatar 2022 as well. That’s why the coaching staff also want them to be recognized as regulars.
Obviously there are other footballers who will join the game such as Paulo Dybala, Exequiel Palacios, Juan Foyth, Guido Rodríguez, Angel Correa. And there are also those who are not part of the 26 champions, but who are part of the Scaloneta gear, such as Giovani Lo Celso and Nicolás González. We will have to see if the others have the opportunity to add a few minutes: Giovanni Simeone and the youngsters, Lautaro Blanco, Máximo Perrone, Facundo Buonanotte and Valentín Carboni.
The national team will leave this Monday after lunch for Paraguay. In Luque there will be a tribute from Conmebol before the draw for the Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana. From there they will fly to Santiago to arrive before dinner. After this Tuesday’s match, the players will return to their respective clubs.
