Argentina World Cup 2022 Updated Quad After Humiliating Defeat To The Green Falcon

After the shocking defeat against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, Argentina will face Mexico at the Lusail Stadium on Saturday.
When Messi and his teammate were stunned by Saudi Arabia and showed us a terrible performance, Mexico could be satisfied to share a point in Tuesday's group opener as Guillermo Ochoa denied Robert Lewandoskhi's from the penalty spot in the second half.
With their World Cup dream already on the line, Argentina must now take down Mexico, who have managed just five wins in their last 35 clashes. Argentina has picked up 16 wins since the first encounter in July 1930.
However, the humiliating defeat against the Green Falcon is a big lesson that happened a few days ago. Argentina's national team must undoubtedly do their best in every match they play in now.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is always the first-choice stopper for Argentina right now. Franco Armani, who plays for River Plate, started Argentina's 5-0 friendly win over Estonia and could be another option for Scaloni in Qatar. Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli is the third goalkeeper on the team.

With Nicolas Otamendi and Cristian Romero poised to become starting partners, Argentina may not have a headache at the back at the moment.
Lisandro Martinez seems ready to compete for his place in the squad with his impressive display for his new club Manchester United, with Nicolas Tagliafico, another player who recently made a transfer willing to show what he can do.

Argentina is known for a brilliant mix between experience and youth. The loss of Giovano Lo Celso who has been ruled out through injury cause great damage to the midfield in the match against Saudi Arabia.
Rodrigo De Paul is still a mainstay in the center of the park, while Leandro Paredes also provides additional strength in the midfield.
Future stars such as Enzo Fernandez and Alexis Mac Allister are set to replace those names if they don't have a better performance.

There's nothing to complain about your team's attack when you have Lionel Messi leading the line.
Messi has been in excellent form for both  Argentina and his club, PSG. He will be hoping to put on a stellar performance for his last opportunity at the 2022 World Cup tournament.
Julian Alvarez and Lautaro Martinez can guarantee support for Messi and the attack to ensure the score "output".
Nicolas Gonzalez was dismissed from the squad because of injury and replaced by Angel Correa. Joaquin Correa was also ruled out and was replaced by Thiago Almada.
Paulo Dybala can not come back in time, but at least, the fineness of Angel Di Maria can make fans pleased when he still world well in the match against Saudi Arabia.

Lionel Messi is ready to lead the Argentinian attack at the World Cup and Scaloni's team will pose a threat to most if not all defenses on the global stage. In attack, he will have Lautaro Martinez up top with Angel Di Maria and Papu Gomez featuring out wide.
Leandro Paredes could get the second slot in the double pivot, with Rodrigo De Paul making the other slot his own in recent games.
Tagliafico and Molina look like the best bet to flank the formidable center-back pairing of Otamendi and Romero.
Emiliano Martinez looks to be the firm No.1 in goal for Scaloni's team.
Argentina XI (4-3-3): Martinez; Molina, Otamendi, Romero, Tagliafico; Paredes, De Paul, Messi; Di Maria, Martinez, Gomez
Let's look forward to seeing an aggressive spirit from Albiceleste, which brought them a 36-game undefeated streak.
