On a visit to the country, the former soccer player and analyst for El Chiringuito de España

Jorge D'Alessandro

gave his opinion on the consecration of the Argentine National Team in Qatar and compared them with those of '78 and '86.

In addition, he praised the figure of Lionel Messi, spoke of Ángel Di María's goal in the final against France and once again praised the midfield made up of Lionel Scaloni.

The Argentine panelist and former goalkeeper had become a meme during the World Cup for explaining with brutal sincerity the keys to the success of the Scaleneta.

That earned him strong crossovers with his colleagues from the television cycle.

"I had to put up with criticism at the worst moment, but

we were the best champion in the history of world football

," he said without turning around, amid the controversy that arose after Rodrigo De Paul's statements.

With that phrase, the Atlético de Madrid midfielder had gotten into a spicy debate that earned him the response of some of the players who reached the top with Bilardo and Menotti.

Just this Wednesday, Scaloni in a press conference tried to lower the foam on the matter: "There is no debate, it is the Argentine National Team. It is silly to think about it. If they are the three world champions, what does it matter if you are better or worse. It is not necessary. If you give me the choice, all three. And I would even put my National Team last because I am like that. It is a debate that does not make much sense. All three are champions".

But D'Alessandro, whose pulse does not tremble when it comes to responding, even went so far as to say that La Scaloneta was better than Pelé's Brazilian team that established itself in 1970. 

"That team kneaded a pizza. It was slow, they passed it backwards until Pelé caught it. I liked it, it seemed emblematic to me with Carlos Alberto's goal, which was considered the best collective goal until Qatar, but Di María's goal in

the The final was the greatest thing I've seen in my life

," he exclaimed in statements to



TyC Sports


"What Argentina did surprised, they never played with three midfielders in history. Neither in '78 nor in '86. They are immortal, but that story is over. Maradona dominated that team, in this World Cup the team was the protagonist They

are Ferraris

they did not let Rabiot, Griezmann touch it...", he explained about the performance of De Paul, Alexis Mac Allister and Enzo Fernández.

Still hallucinated by Argentina's second goal against

Les Blues

, he continued: "It was a fantasy, I remember Molina playing Mac Allister and then Leo. Argentina used eight thousand square meters and used the 105 meters long, from one side of lime to the other side Di Maria.

The best goal of all time


In addition, he highlighted the figure of Angelito by highlighting that "Argentina attacked from the sides and that was the key to the game."

Tsss, Tsss, the image that became a Meme after the drink.

He said that, during the World Cup, the National Team "generated such an imbalance in the engine room, in the midfield with vertigo, that it gave him peace of mind to get going with a moving ball."

"We created many situations: we generated football and there were great goals.

Nobody believed that Argentina was going to do this

," he analyzed.

And he was moved when he recalled the reception for the champions on December 20: "That scene moved me. I 

have not seen such a mobilization in my life

. It was a cry of hope."

Messi's World Cup and the comparison with Maradona

"Messi has played happily. Maradona was the best individual player, he was a soloist. He won a World Cup by himself, but the plays were without association, he didn't need the rest. At 35, we have found the best version of Messi because


has played football, at the service of the team to put the seal of distinction on it. That's why he smiled", stressed D'Alessandro.

And he said that the famous

"Andá pa' allá, bobo"

of the rosary seemed

"great and authentically Argentine".

Finally, as a former goalkeeper with a step in San Lorenzo​ he allowed himself to talk about

Emiliano Dibu Martínez


"He is an old goalkeeper, I love him. He is exceptional, he has personality, handling of the game and his foot. He uses the long ball when he needs it," he said.

And when talking about other teams, he concluded that

"Spain was a disappointment and Brazil admires us

. "
