The Argentina team returned to play in their homeland after the world stormy, without important figures like Messi, Higuain, and Mascherano and with an interim coach criticized by Maradonna. But let’s ignore the drug addict, let’s focus on Lionel Scaloni, who since taking on the position of technical director and with his last victory against Mexico has a record of 3 wins, a draw and a defeat against Brazil.
Scaloni has the merit to remain in the position permanently, even if he does not have the support of the experts or the press, he represents the generational change giving the opportunity to young people who already play at the highest level, leaving the old rusty ones out of call and making nobody miss the best player in history, Leonel Messi.
In the game against Mexico, the South American team looked strong, ordered and with a clear idea. The goals were converted by Ramiro Funes Mori, at 44 minutes, and Isaac Brizuela, an own goal at minute 83, at the Mario Alberto Kempes stadium in the province of Córdoba, with an excellent behavior of the fans.
For its part Mexico continues with the same losing path, they beat Germany in the World Cup and until then they got the battery. It defeated South Korea with suffering, then fell to Sweden and be eliminated by Brazil in the second round in Russia 2018. Since “El Tuca” took the helm, the Mexican team has lost to Uruguay, the United States, Chile and now Argentina.
The second victory of the Mexican team was against Costa Rica, also with a tight score of 3 goals by 2. Except for that pair of successes, Mexico accumulates a very bad semester. But what can be expected if your most important forwards are nicknamed “Chicharito” or the “Chiqui Lozano” a little seriousness or bring Chapo to see if they ever win something.
