In a friendly match between Argentina and Brazil, there is never anything friendly, both teams came to the match wanting to show more and better football. The two teams had won their previous game but without much brilliance, by isolated moves in the case of Brazil and because the opponent had no level on the side of Argentina.
The technical directors would try alternatives, Scaloni the interim coach of Argentina would put for the first time Lo Celso, Dybala and Icardi together in a match, knowing that they are the new generation and need to be tested at the highest level. Tite would also do his experiment by placing Gabriel de Jesus and Firmino together, looking for goals that Brazil lacked last matches.
The game was more of the same, boring, Brazil was a bit more but had no spark. A Neymar very marked all he did was roll and roll through the grass of Saudi Arabia. Argentina showed some football in the second half, with a free kick by Dybala that would pass close to the squad defended by Alisson and an attempt by Icardi covered by the Brazilian defense. In the last quarter of an hour Neymar would raise the level of Brazil, a good combination with Arthur would make Romero show off. The tie would be maintained until the 92nd minute when, after a corner shot by Neymar that Miranda, the central of Inter, would anticipate Romero and give the victory to Brazil 1-0.
Brazil continues with its good step in view of the Copa America that will be played in their country, however, they still do not find the “nice jogo” they would like to have. For its part, Argentina is still struggling a bit with the generational change, they need more matches and a clear project to be able to set and dream of winning a title.
