Hernán Magrini's team lost the final against Brazil, but got the tickets for the maximum event that will be played this year in Dubai

The Argentine beach soccer team qualified for the World Cup

to be played this year in Dubai.

After reaching

second place in the Copa América

that was played in Rosario, Hernán Magrini's team was left with a taste that was more sweet than sour: although it is true that they lost the final against Brazil, one of the powers of the discipline, they managed to the main objective, which was

to qualify for the maximum appointment after eight years of absence.

In the press conference after the final that was played on Sunday, the coach Magrini remarked: “I think we have not yet realized what we have achieved.

The continental competition is becoming more even, and we have managed to get among the three that will go to the World Cup.

There is a lot to work on ahead of Dubai 2023."

And he added: “

The general balance of the tournament is positive.

We took second place

, which is not little, but logically today we were looking for more”.

Argentina lost the final of the Copa América against Brazil, but that did not overshadow the achievement achieved

For his part, soccer player Sebastián Gómez Polatti said: "For years we have been working, fighting for the dream of qualifying for the World Cup. We were able to fulfill it and that makes us very happy."

The final against Brazil

With the objective of qualifying for the

World Cup that will be played from November 16 to 26 in Dubai,

the Argentine team sought to stay with continental glory by playing the grand

final of the Copa América - Rosario 2023 against Brazil


The decisive match of the tournament was played in the same Predio La Rural that hosted the entire contest during the other 9 days.

But it could not be, since the

Brazilian powerhouse defeated the national team 13-5 and won the continental title


“The first period of the match began with an early goal from Brazil, led by Jose Da Cruz, who opened the scoring after 45 seconds.

Then the verdeamarelo team scored four more goals: Jordan Soares, Edson Souza and Filipe Duarte, on two occasions, were the scorers”, the Argentine Football Association reported from the press.

“In the second stage, a bit by side: Lucas Ponzetti, from Chile and middle distance, for the Albiceleste, and Igor Melo for the Brazilians.

And the final 12-minute block began with a Brazilian goal, Brendo Chagas;

then, Manuel Pomar discounted, and Edson Souza stretched the advantage of Rio de Janeiro.

Subsequently, Datinha and Soares extended the distance, which was shortened by Mathías Rivadeneira.

Duarte and Souza then scored again for Brazil, while Lucas Medero scored for 4-12.

Datinha, the 10 of the canarinha, made it 13-4 with 3 minutes to go, and Emanuel De Sosa, with a free kick, made it 5-13 in the final”, they added from AFA.

Greetings from Angel Di Maria

After the team secured qualification for the World Cup after beating Colombia in the semifinal on Saturday, one of those who was present from a distance to celebrate the goal achieved was the world champion, Angel Di María.

"Congratulations on qualifying for the World Cup, let's go Argentina," Di María wrote in the post that the AFA published on Instagram.
