Argentina’s bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup attracts all football fans. King Messi is most likely going to his last World Cup in his career, and he is going in the best shape since his scandalous departure from Barcelona. To Qatar with him from those who were in the 2014 World Cup final? only di Maria and Otamendi remained, otherwise the head coach Lionel Scaloni gathered a very cool team that can win.
Argentina’s 2022 World Cup bid: Goalkeepers
Goalkeepers: Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa), Jeronimo Rugli (Villarreal), Franco Armani (River Plate).
The unambiguous first number of the application of the Argentina national team at the 2022 World Cup - for the first time in a long time, a real goalkeeper in great shape Emiliano Martinez. Yes, he had a slight injury before the Worlds, but he should have time to recover. Martinez saves Aston Villa regularly, and has been around for 3 years now. The wheels and especially Armani are not close in class to Martinez, if he is healthy, he will ironically take the gates throughout the Fifa World Cup.
Argentina’s 2022 World Cup bid: defenders
Centre-backs: Christian Romero (Tottenham), Lisandro Martinez (Manchester United), Nicolas Otamendi (Benfica), Herman Pescella (Betis).
Right back: Juan Foit (Villarreal), Nahuel Molina (Atletico), Gonzalo Montiel (Sevilla).
Left-backs: Marcos Acuña (Sevilla), Nicolas Tagliafico (Lyon).
In defense, Scaloni has great performers, especially among the central ones. Romero and Martinez play good football in the Premier League and have long taken places at the top of the top clubs. The veteran Otamendi and the experienced Peccella are going to Qatar, who have never played at the top level, but are quite reliable in the national team. Full-backs are the weak area of the application of the Argentina national team. Although young and promising LaLiga representatives Molina and Montiel will compete on the right, they will be assisted by Foyt, who can play in the center. On the left are two veterans who have passed their peak: Acuña and Tagliafico, it is difficult to call them reliable.
Argentina squad for 2022 World Cup: midfielders
Midfielders: Rodrigo de Paul (Atletico Madrid), Alexis Mac Allister (Brighton), Leandro Paredes (Juventus), Exequiel Palacios (Bayer Madrid), Papu Gomez (Sevilla), Enzo Fernandez (Benfica) ), Guido Rodriguez (Betis).
In the midfield of the application of the Argentina national team for the World Cup, there are all promising players. The leader will be De Paul from the formidable Atlético and the veteran Papu Gomez, who plays great in creation. Mac Allister, Palacios and Fernandez are the three main hopes of Argentine fans for the future. Paredes is terrible at the club, but plays reliably in the national team, Guido Rodriguez is able to cement the game in the end from the bench.
Forwards in Argentina squad
Forwards: Lionel Messi (PSG), Angel Di Maria (Juventus), Paulo Dybala (Roma), Lautaro Martinez, Joaquin Correa (both Inter), Julián Alvarez (Manchester City), Nicholas Gonzalez ( Fiorentina).
It makes no sense to talk about the composition of the Argentines without Messi at the FIFA World Cup, he is still the main icon and hope. Di Maria has had an average season since leaving PSG, but he has been incredibly useful in the national team. Lautaro Martinez, who has been enchanting at Inter for a long time and really closes all the passes of the great Messi, will play in the center of the attack. He has a competitor in the form of a new ward of Guardiola Alvarez, he will definitely come off the bench. The fate of Dybala, who was included in Argentina’s squad for the 2022 World Cup despite an injury, is in question. Gonzalez and Correa are a great option to increase the attack from the 60th minute.
