Lionel Scaloni spoke this Friday at a press conference, in which he assured that Messi “is fine on a physical and moral level”. And also, he warned that Argentina “will not change the way they play because of what happened against Saudi Arabia.”
Before giving the last practice prior to the key clash against Mexico for the second date of Group C of the Qatar World Cup, Scaloni said: “I don’t know where it came from that Messi did not train yesterday. He is fine and more than ever we need everyone, his teammates and surely everything will go well. We have no doubt about that. On a physical level it’s fine, on a moral level it’s fine. There is no problem”.
And about possible changes, Scaloni admitted: “We evaluated looking for alternatives to our game, but not to our way of playing. It is possible that we make some variation, but we will decide today.
The duel with Mexico
“We play a football game, with all the responsibility that an entire country is behind us hoping that things go well for us, but with the absolute peace of mind of knowing that whoever goes out on the pitch is going to leave every last drop of sweat. That We will never doubt it, this team and this group will leave everything until the last minute to turn this situation around. From then on, football matches have to be played and we have to show that we’re in good shape”.
“Mexico is a very good team, as we were saying when the group stage was drawn, with a very clear idea of the game, attacking and with a great coach. But we have a way of playing and we don’t have to negotiate it. Beyond Before we can receive a blow like the one the other day, we are clear that we have to continue the same and face it in the way we had planned before the game with Arabia”.

Scaloni and the memory of Maradona
“It is a very sad day for everyone. We hope tomorrow to bring you joy, if you are looking at us from heaven. It seems incredible, it is the only reality and when we remember or see images or an anniversary is fulfilled, it seems incredible that it is no longer there. But we hope that tomorrow will be a joyous day for all of us and we can provide it to you.”
