The Argentina national team squad completed a new training session today ahead of Wednesday’s game poland Thief Lionel Messi Same as pre-debut days with some of his teammates and a happy atmosphere world cup qatar 2022,

technical director Lionel Scaloni 26 footballers were available but as in the previous one Mexico It will take another day to define the team that faces Poland on Wednesday from 4:00 PM Stadium 974,

The win against Mexico (2-0) represented much more than the first three points for the “Albiceleste” in Group C, as the squad was released and the environment in the days before began to run out of luck with the defeat. Reclaimed the happiness I felt in against Saudi Arab,

Practice was behind closed doors but the AFA released several images of players training with more relaxed and cheerful faces.

Those in the coaching staff recognize that what used to be a traditional barbecue dinner with visits to family and friends on Sunday can sometimes be more than an exercise.

However, Scaloni, Walter Samuel, Pablo Aimar, Roberto Ayala and Matias Manna do not miss working on the pitch with the footballers for almost two hours a day as they draw conclusions which are then debated in internal group meetings.

The training activity, scheduled for 6:00 pm (12:00 in Argentina) in Doha, consisted of general warm-ups under the orders of physical trainer Luis Martin and the addition of the four goalkeepers Damian Albil and Martin Tocalli.

Later, Scaloni arranged drills with the ball to work on possession and definition and on soccer matches in low spaces.

Lionel Messi, who played more than 180 minutes in the first two games, wore an orange bib like Angel Di Maria and attended all training as usual.

Enzo Fernandez, Lisandro Martinez, Alexis McAllister and Julian Alvarez shared the yellow bib team.

Scaloni has not yet ruled out a potential team and only tomorrow he will dispel the doubts that have lingered since the important win against the team led by Gerardo Martino.

The changes that stand out are the entry of Fernández, author of the great goal for the 2-0, and the return of Gonzalo Montiel to the possession of Nahuel Molina at right back.

In the analysis of the match, Santa Fe coach and his colleague Alexis McAllister were satisfied with the performance and did not rule out that he could continue in the starting line-up.

The left inside midfielder position, which saw Giovanni Lo Celso absent due to injury, is the one in which the coaching staff made the most changes as four players went through it in two games: Alejandro Gómez, Julián Álvarez, Mac Allister and Xaquiel. Palacios.

Meanwhile, Leandro Paredes, Enzo Fernandez, Guido Rodríguez and then former River Plate and current Benfica player from Portugal have already played as central midfielders.

To define the team, Scaloni will also take into account the main features of Poland, a team that differed in system and names in the first two matches of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Against Mexico he left Robert Lewandowski alone and against Saudi Arabia he used another striker of great physical size such as Arkadiusz Milik (1.86 m) who plays for Juventus alongside Di Maria and Paredes.

The left flank of the defense should also be on alert for the rise of right-back Matty Cash, Emiliano Martinez’s partner at Aston Villa.

The squad will be training at Doha University from 1:30 pm tomorrow, with the first fifteen minutes open to the press.

Before that, starting at 10:15, Lionel Scaloni and the players to be confirmed (Messi and Lautaro Martinez have already passed) will speak at a press conference at the Doha Media Center.

Argentina (3) has to beat Poland (4) to qualify for first place in Group C and face second in Group D in the Round of 16.

Another way is to draw and hope that Mexico (1) doesn’t beat Saudi Arabia (3) in a back-to-back match at Lucell Stadium.
