EVE

van Gaal "Argentina? Ready to handle their cheer too"

 - Louis van Gaal awaits the clash with Argentina with respect but without fear, always convinced that the Netherlands have the numbers "to go all the way" in the World Cup in Qatar and "are focused on this goal".

Tomorrow, however, in addition to the Albiceleste champions, his players will also have supporters against him, but the veteran of the benches does not tremble and at the press conference he says he has confidence in his players that "they are very professional to be able to handle the pressure from the Argentine fans. They will be 40,000 and we are only 1,400, but we are prepared".

The Dutch coach reiterates that he has prepared a special tactic to contain Messi, which "it would be stupid to reveal" but which "may be evident tomorrow" and as for the Oranje's game, which many criticize for not being spectacular,

he explains that "it's difficult to play up front like it was 20 years ago. In 2014 I started developing a more defensive setup and now people like it."

Van Gaal also has a joke for Di Maria, with whom he had a somewhat stormy relationship at the time of Manchester United and who called him the worst coach I've met in his career: "Di Maria is an excellent footballer, but at the time he had had many personal problems, he also suffered a robbery at home and this perhaps affected him. I'm sorry you think so about me, but those sitting next to me could too ", he continues pointing to Memphis Depay, also his player at United: " Sometimes you have to make decisions that you don't like. It happened with Memphis too, now we kiss on the mouth."

Scaloni "Netherlands balanced, I hope we don't need penalties"

- "It will be a good game to watch, there are two teams that intend to attack, but controlling each other. If you only think about attacking, in the end you end up paying for it".

the Argentina coach, Lionel Scaloni, has clear ideas on the eve of the quarter-final of the World Cup with Louis van Gaal's Holland who, he claims, "is a very balanced team, everyone defends and everyone attacks, and it's a bit ' is the summary of today's football. Years ago it was thought that there were four or five players to attack and others to defend, now it's different."

Saloni is very clear that the Dutch colleague will try in every way to curb Messi, but obviously does not reveal the countermeasures that he will adopt, "I don't want to anticipate anything, it's one thing to say it and another to do it".

hoping to end the challenge without reaching penalties.

"I'm certainly not thinking about penalty takers now - he says in answer to a question at the press conference - Those are always chosen after 120 minutes, it would be completely wrong to do it a priori. However, let's think about winning in regular time".

Unnerved by the question, the coach then reacts badly on the question of De Paul's conditions, which according to some Argentine media would question him for the match.

"Yesterday's training was behind closed doors so I don't know where this information comes from - he underlines -. Rodrigo is fine in principle. We will see in training to define the formation", which should also include Di Maria among the owners.
