SABELLA said. He also mentioned that overall the team had some improvement and this is also a positive sign as the tournament progresses.
"I am satisfied with 9 points. We have to consolidate on what we have done well and improve our mistakes."
On AGUERO’s injury "Kun had a muscular problem, we will continue to see how this evolves."
On whether the team’s defense is a matters of concern "We are an attacking team and sometimes an attacking team does have problems. Beyond that, I think the defense is doing a great job."
He also praised Ezequiel LAVEZZI for having a good game after replacing AGUERO. On how he felt about Lionel MESSI’s performance
"We already know MESSI. Players of his stature by large know what they can do and can do whatever they want."
