Although they are among the favorites to lift the trophy of the world Cup, lionel scaloni I consider that “one mistake can leave you out”. Argentina is part of Group C in the World Cup Qatar 2022 together with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland and the coach of the ‘albiceleste’ referred to the possibilities of his team, which is led by Lionel Messi.

“The most important thing is that we all know it: in a World Cup, a mistake, a fatality or something that happens to you unexpectedly can leave you out. And there are plenty of examples, like Argentina in 2002, which was undeservedly left out. It was due to an unfair penalty against England, which was not, and then in a game in which he filled Sweden with balls. Therefore, these things must be taken into account.” indicated Scaloni in statements to Olé.

“The World Cup is very cruel, very unfair to those who really deserve it.

For Scaloni, the important thing is that his teams enjoy every moment of the 2022 World Cup: “The World Cup is cruel because of what I said, it doesn’t let you have a mistake or a fatality that can be in the world of football. Afterwards, I am of the idea that you have to try to enjoy everything, with joy, with all that it takes to be managing a group of this level. It is our way of carrying it forward, let’s hope it goes well for us”.
