After the celebration in the Monumental, the Scaloneta prepares the second friendly in a revolutionized Santiago del Estero. Who will play as starters?

These are mobilizing hours for the Argentine National Team


After the emotional celebration at the Monumental stadium, the intimate party on Saturday at the Ezeiza property and the Sunday off to enjoy with the family, it's time to refocus for the second friendly of the FIFA date, with a few hours before where he will receive a new recognition by Conmebol, for which the squad completed will travel this Monday to Asunción del Paraguay.

For now, this Monday morning was the moment of the reunion for the coaching staff headed by Lionel Scaloni and the footballers at the renamed "Lionel Andrés Messi" venue, in Ezeiza.

With much fewer fans in the surroundings compared to what happened last week, the Albiceleste held their last practice session before the match against Curaçao, which in the event of victory will leave them number 1 in the FIFA ranking in the next update.

The training session began at 10:30, behind closed doors, in which some details were finalized and some issues were defined regarding the starting eleven that will take to the field of play at the Madre de Ciudades stadium, in a Santiago del Estero revolutionized by the return of the Argentine National Team.

"The coaching staff arranged exercises with the ball and positional work in small spaces," according to the AFA, although it transpired that

Leandro Paredes


Lautaro Martínez


Gonzalo Montiel

would be starters, after having completed a soccer match in small spaces.

Obviously, Lionel Messi will be given the chance to be the first Argentine footballer to score 100 goals in the National Team from the start.

The eleven?

Emiliano Martinez;

Gonzalo Montiel, Cristian Romero or Germán Pezzella, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico or Marcos Acuña;

Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Alexis Mac Allister or Gio Lo Celso;

Messi, Lautaro Martínez and Ángel Di María or Nicolás González


Travel and recognition in Luque

In this way, the selected world champion closed the preparation in the country since in the afternoon he travels to Paraguay, where he will receive a tribute from Conmebol, and then to Santiago del Estero, to play against Curaçao this Tuesday from from 20:30.

Not much is known about the recognition that will be made in the preview of the Copa Libertadores and Sudamericana draws, but it will last a maximum of one hour, since they must get back on the charter plane to disembark in the capital of Santiago and rest facing the friendly

The "Albiceleste" would not train again at the "Lionel Andrés Messi" property in Ezeiza until next September, for the start of the South American Qualifiers, since by the June FIFA date it is estimated that they will tour Asia.

How is Santiago del Estero prepared?

The city of Santiago del Estero will receive the Argentine National Team with a fence along the eight kilometers that separate the local airport from the hotel where the World Champion squad will stay in Qatar 2022.

Some 3,500 police officers are involved in the entire security operation, according to Télam, Commissioner
