The one for one of the national team at Wembley
Emiliano Martinez (6): When they demanded it in the first half, with a shot from Raspadori and others, he responded well, without rebounds.

Cristiano Romero (6): In a field that he knows well because he is a protagonist in the Premier League, he felt at ease.

Nicholas Otamendi (7): The best of the defense, he was quick to advance, always one step ahead, reading the play. When he had to scrape and bump, so did he. It was the usual command voice.
Nicola Tagliafico (6): Beyond the fact that at a certain point he had some abandonment with Bernardeschi, then he asserted himself, he projected wisely and participated in the play of the first goal, interrupting the Italian advance.
Angelo Di Maria (7): Once again playing on the right, which suits him because he knows how to hook, shoot diagonally and hit him with the right. The goal was with his trademark, going into the void and exploiting the spaces.

Rodrigo de Paul (6): He played the double five with Guido Rodríguez, he had a great task, he offered himself as a starter, he did it well, with criteria, always trying to find holes to damage in attack.
Guido Rodriguez (6): As every time he supplants Paredes, he obeyed. He was well positioned in the middle of the field, trying to contain when Italy tried to advance. He made a good couple with De Paul.
Youth Lo Celso (6): He played as he always did with Scaloni, on the left and well. He gave Messi the pass on the game of the first goal, and he always tried to find space between the lines and team up with his teammates.
