Sampaoli sure Argentina can find feet against France
30 June, 2018, 12:14 | Author: Elena Meyer
There were no prizes to guess Argentina's key player - their captain and best player, Messi.
The coach said France's characteristics of quick ball recovery and pace on the break through Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud would make them particularly unsafe if Argentina were unable to dominate possession.
Instead, it's been suggested he will bring in Cristian Pavon to start the game and play Barcelona star at a false nine, giving him complete freedom of movement in attack. But as we saw in the Euros, some teams who looked good during the group stage were later knocked out.
"They've won the World Cup in the past so it will be a big, hard match and we'll have to step up our level". After their poor draw against World Cup debutants Iceland, Lionel Messi and Co were thrashed 3-0 by Croatia. "They also have [Barcelona] team-mates whom I know well".
Much has been made of Messi's influence on the Argentina side, but France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris rejected suggestions they were a one-man outfit. I didn't expect that from him because he already won everything. He's got outstanding qualities. On both cases, Argentina reached the Finals.
Argentina have gone past the first round for the 12th time in their last 13 World Cup appearances, the only exception coming in 2002.
Argentina battled into the last 16 in Russian Federation, needing a dramatic 2-1 win over Nigeria to clinch second spot in Group D with their first victory of the tournament. He is the last Argentinean player to score against France, back in February 2009 in a friendly (2-0).
We don't trust Argentina to shut out France, nor do we expect Les Bleus to deny the South Americans the goals they covet dearly.
Like many of his compatriots, Griezmann has fallen short of expectations and, with just a goal to his name, is promising fans there's more to come. This move would also allow France to accommodate another player instead of Giroud.
When and what time is the round of 16 match between Argentina and France? Even though the numbers look quite solid (two wins in three matches and only goal conceded), the stats do not tell the whole story.
This game sounds like an absolute cracker but, if I'm being honest, it's not really.
