Argentina Singapore training

Argentina is expected to line up in a 2-3-4-1 formation:

Nahuel GUZMAN; Emmanuel MAMMAN, Federico FAZIO; Eduardo SALVIO, Lucas BIGLIA, Marcos ACUNA; Papu GOMEZ, Manuel LANZINI, Paulo DYBALA, Angel DI MARIA; JoaquinĀ CORREA

    ————-Romero————

    –Otamendi—–Mammana—-Mercado—

    ————–Mascherano—-””—-

    —Savio-‘—–Paredes—–Dimaria–

    ——-Messi’–‘———Dybala—–

    ————-Icardi—–‘———-

    Ps: Mascherano as a libero, Messi and Dybala keep switching, Paredes controls the tempo of the game,Savio and Dimaria are helping the back 3 in defense and contribute as well in offense. Otamendi as a RCD very strong in this very,Mammana for his height,position,coolness and skills with the ball,Mercado very strong and experiments at the back, can contribute in many ways, Icardi ad the best finisher that we have now.

    Just enough to use new faces…no di maria no biglia.

    It is logic and make sense to play with 2 CBs against Singapore, try and experience new scheme and players is a a must for Sampaoli team selection. The team need to be refresh and recharge the spirit, an excellent start for new era. Sampaoli emphasis on the wings formation to do the attack, trust he could find a reliable new engine like Salvio, Papu,Lanzini,Pardes

    2-3-4-1 formation, eh? Last used in 1930’s šŸ˜€ In all seriousness, this is a uber-attacking line-up and a good chance for new players to shine.

      So we know why Sampaoli was talking he want to make new La Machina of NT. 5 forwards on.

    Awesome coach and tactics, but if we just get rid of HiguaĆ­n who is cancer to the team. With HiguaĆ­n we play with only 10 players.

    Excited to see acuna in Banega’s place; as well as papu playing on the wing opponent of dimaria. Looking forward to lanzini linking with dybala but…..! I understand this is a “try out” for the national team for a lot of these players but Players like aguero, Pastore and possibly Garay could really be effective for Sampa. Maybe Pastore and lanzini together in midfield with biglia holding? Let’s see how some of these younger players produce.

    would love to see the combination of biglia-dybala-di maria again? Perhaps Papu Gomez can slot in and prove himself here

    I like the roster! LOTS of fresh and semi-fresh faces.
    I guess I have to wake up earlier than usual to watch this, just wish it was a better competition.
