Argentina vs Qatar Preview
Argentina are last in Group B, having lost to Colombia 2-0 and drawn with Paraguay 1-1. Still, a victory on Sunday would likely push them through to the elimination stage, either as the second-place team in the group or as one of two third-place squads to advance.
“We are lucky to be alive,” Argentina head coach Lionel Scaloni said, according to The Associated Press. “We will try to find our best form as we move forward.”
Down 1-0 in the second half against Paraguay, Argentine superstar Lionel Messi equalized from the penalty spot in the wake of an Ivan Piris handball in the box.
“It would be crazy not to advance when three teams are practically guaranteed in the next round,” Messi said, per The Associated Press.
He added: “We knew that it was not easy to come play Copa America, we were searching for a team, for a system. Nowadays you don’t win because of the shirt anymore, and we have to do things well to get the three points.”
La Albiceleste held the ball for 56 percent of the match, but Paraguay managed more shots (10-7) and shots on goal (3-2).
Qatar have an identical record, but sit one spot ahead of Argentina on goal difference. They erased a two-goal deficit in the second half to draw with Paraguay, then fell to Colombia 1-0 on a Duvan Zapata header in the 86th minute.
Despite the final score, Colombia dominated the Maroons, possessing the ball for 69 percent of the match and more than doubling up Qatar in passes (564-274). Los Cafeteros took 20 shots to Qatar’s seven.
“It’s true we are not very well known in South America, but we have super-professional players and we’ve come to compete, not to take photos with Messi,” Sanchez said, according to Goal.com.
“They’re the favorites and are obliged to win. We’ll try to compete against a great team who have the best player in the world.
“We have a chance to qualify and that’s what’s exciting, not the fact we could knock out a monster like Argentina.”
He added: “Messi can be decisive in any game due to his quality, hundreds of coaches have spent ages trying to stop him but there’s no magic formula, it all depends on Leo’s feet.
“However much you focus on it it’s very difficult to stop him, but we’ll try to prevent him from getting involved in the play in the final third of the pitch.”
