World Cup winner Jorge VALDANO spoke about Argentina, Lionel MESSI and more.
Speaking to the media, VALDANO commented on Argentina’s fragility and missing the World Cup. Here’s what he had to say:
“There isn’t much time to recover but the more difficult it is, the closer the solution. I believe the players will stick together and unite to turn things around. A World cup without MESSI would be less of a World Cup.”
“This result leaves Argentina in a very difficult position. There are still seven games left and the game against Colombia will also be challenging. It’s not easy to compete when the atmosphere is not the right one. There is a lot of pressure to deliver.”
“Once COUTINHO scored Brazil’s opener, Argentina collapsed. They played without soul.”
“We need to reflect on how difficult it is to reach three consecutive finals. Argentina showed fragility as if they still haven’t recovered from the defeats of three consecutive finals. Perhaps missing out on qualification for the World Cup would be a punishment for us.”
“BAUZA faces the demand of 40 million football crazy Argentines.”
