NoteArgentina is one step closer to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Ajax players Nicolas Tagliafico and Licandro Martinez watched from the bench as their team won 0-1 when they visited Uruguay. Lionel Messi was given fifteen minutes of play time.
In Paris Saint-Germain, they did not like Messi’s trip to South America for an international match against Argentina. After all, Argentina missed the last game against Girondins Bordeaux due to a knee problem. However, the star player boarded the plane to play in the game against Uruguay last night. Even if it’s the last fifteen minutes.
Like Ajax players Tagliapico and Martinez, Messi started on the bench. From there he watched as Angel Di Maria scored a massive 0-1 goal in ten minutes against Messi’s close friend Luis Suarez’s Uruguay. The PSG player rolled the ball very beautifully.
After that opening goal, Sar ஸs and Uruguay all knocked on the door for almost the entire game, but goalkeeper Emiliano Martினnez would not let anyone. The Aston Villa goalkeeper personally allowed Argentina to add three more points.
Argentina now have 28 points after twelve games, six less than Brazil, but eighth over Ecuador and twelfth more than Chile, third and fourth, respectively. Those countries have played one more game. It is important to finish in the top four countries in South America. Then there is the fact of participating in the World Cup in Qatar. Fifth will play another intercontinental play-off. Uruguay still need to work harder. Suarez and allies are actually in sixth place (a place that gives no rights to anything) with as many points as fourth Chile.
The United States has performed well in the North American World Cup qualifiers. The Americans topped Cincinnati Mexico 2-0. Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic gave the Americans the lead fifteen minutes before the end and Juventus’ Weston McKenzie won 2-0 with five minutes to go. In the final, Miles Robinson had to continue with ten Americans after a second yellow card. Ajax player Edson Alvarez was replaced by Rogelio Funes Mori who was added before the end of the game for the Mexico players.
Both the United States and Mexico have 14 points from 7 games. The Americans have the best goal difference and lead the team in North and Central America and the Caribbean. No. 3 Canada is one point lower.
