Argentina seeks to continue to shine against Peru in the World Cup qualifiers
Argentina will host Peru at 1:30 in the morning, at the Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires.
The twelfth round of South American qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.
Argentina is in the second place in the qualifying group with 22 points, from 10 matches.
This is 6 points behind the leaders Brazil, while Peru is in seventh place with 11 points.
In the last round, Argentina defeated Uruguay, 3-0.
The Tango team, led by the star Lionel Messi, performed a great performance, while the Peruvian team lost in the same round to its Bolivian counterpart, with a goal free of charge.
Argentina, who has not yet lost in the qualifiers, is trying to win in order to get close to qualifying for the World Cup.
While the Peruvian team seeks to compensate for the previous loss, and approach the semi-finals.
Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni said at the match press conference about the squad:
“The squad will be like the last two games, maybe there will be some adjustments, if we make any adjustments to the lineup, it will be because of the way we go into the match, not because of the performance.”
And about Lionel Messi, he said:
“It is very difficult to say that Messi has not been good with the national team at some point.”
“I think he’s good with the team, he feels comfortable with his teammates and that makes him better, without the team his performance wouldn’t reflect very well.”
