Julio OLARTICOECHEA and Giovanni SIMEONE both commented on Argentina’s 3-1 win.
OLARTICOECHEA commented on the win and Manuel LANZINI’s injury. Goalscorer Giovanni SIMEONE spoke about the match, the Olympics and his father. Here’s what they had to say:
“We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy match, because all the countries have grown on a physical level just as much as on the tactical level. At times, I liked what I saw, we always try to go out there and play and create chances.”
OLARTICOECHEA on Manuel LANZINI’s injury:
“The medical staff are evaluating him. We’re waiting to see the time length of it but they’ll have the last word about it.”
“I’m happy for the team and for the goal. I think we had a good game, we were looking for open spaces they’d leave us.”
“I’m excited about the Olympics because it’s the sky blue and white, also, it’s an important tournament for any athlete. My father scored a goal at the Olympics. Let’s see if I can do the same.”
