And from now on, who plays? The last match in group A was not just a victory, but a confirmation Javier Mascherano He has a squad with which he can animate a World Cup with an unexpected role. Unlike what happened in the South American Cup in Colombia, where paradoxically they failed to qualify for this World Cup that they are now trying to host, the coach has players on the pitch and on the bench for the various proposals he proposes and, apparently , here too, everyone gives up.

If those who come out of the bank come in and score the same number of goals in a game that Mascherano thought they were starters in the first two games, what tools will DT use to define the next team? “Everyone is in a position to play, we have to see: it depends on the opponent we have and the need to put together the most suitable eleven”Mascherano explained to clarify the first doubt after the great match in San Juan.

Knowing that the guys entering are in a position to do it very well, as are those coming off the bench, we can rest easy. This is what you want as a coach: to know that you can count on everyone,” Mascherano celebrated at the press conference.

One of the pearls that the party had, It was Luka Romero’s goal, the third of the victory. “Luka’s goal is a terrible bomb. First the start was good, the game is half dirty, but he has the capacity because he is very intense when it comes to playing without the ball, when it comes to pressing.
