Friday was a day of many sightings. He was photographed in action worthy of a Boy Scout; train like a real cyclist and taste a good ham between bread and bread, like any tourist of the Falda del Carmen.

Scene 1. “Wait, I’ll tie your laces so you don’t fall,” Scaloni said and bent down so that the lady wouldn’t step on the laces that you loosened on your right foot with your left foot. The two, along with the rest of the passengers in that group, made a short trip to the plane, which was destined for Córdoba’s Pajas Blancas airport. In another gesture of the ideal son-in-law, the manager of the world champion Argentina team made his first appearance in a series outside the football context.

Scene 2. Wear shoes suitable for pedals, mid-calf socks, lycra leggings and a t-shirt of the same construction adapted to the body. Mirrored glasses and a cycling helmet because, clearly, he is a cyclist. It lays next to the sign of Puerto Observatorio de Bosque Alegre, in Córdoba, a route that cyclists use to train due to its demanding incline that makes the journey of just over three kilometers at an altitude of 1,181 meters more difficult. Scaloni, the cyclist, poses next to the reference poster.

Scene 3. Descending Route E-96 around Puerto Observatorio is less demanding and hungry. On the side of the road in Falda del Carmen is the Quito post office. A cold glass of water and a sandwich of white bread with a generous portion of cooked ham.

The next time Scaloni will be mentioned again in the football arena, will be when the Argentina national team completes a tour of Asia, where they will face Australia, in Beijing, on Thursday 15th, and Indonesia, in Jakarta, on Monday, 19th June.

This will be the last time the senior squad’s players meet before the South American qualifiers kick off in September, in which Argentina kick off at home against Ecuador and then visit Bolivia in the first FIFA calendar.
