FIFA World Cup 2022 – Lionel Scaloni; the head coach of Argentina believes that Argentina has come up with a plan t tackle the Croatian team. He held a press conference in Qatar and informed the press about the team’s performance. The Argentinan coach added that his team is fully prepared to face the Croatian football team.
Moreover, he also said that the team members analyzed the gameplay of the Croatian team, and we know exactly how they play. Scaloni along with other experts of the game knows very well the playing style of Croatia. They don’t play defense and also don’t play full attack.
The team likes to keep things in the middle so that they can balance everything. However, with time, they can shift from all attack to all defense and the other around meaning from all defense to all attack. It depends on the current situation of the game. If more goals have to be scored to win or tie the match, they will shift to an attack.
However, if they have scored a goal, they will shift toward all defenses to help protect their lead. Due to this, Scaloni said they have a plan to tackle the opposing team Croatia.
In addition to the above analysis, Scaloni further added that Croatia was a strong team, and has some excellent players. Moreover, he praised the performance of the team management as well as the players and also thanked them for their contribution to football.

Both teams have to win one game to go to the semi-finals and play against France or the other team that will reach the finals. However, Scaloni says that they are cool and not under pressure because he and his teammates have found a way to give them a tough time to the Croatians.
Salon further added to the previous statement that the Croatian team has hurt many other national teams due to their players, but they have looked at and constantly analyzed their weaknesses and that is where they will hurt them the most, but it depends on fate. It is never easy to predict because, things might not just work out, but we have to be hopeful.
A great performance might make things easier for us, but fate has an involvement in the game as it is football. In football, the best team doesn’t need to win. Sometimes fate is the deciding factor. The miracle of fate was seen when Saudi Arabia played against Argentina in their first match.
Although the Saudi team seemed weak, they managed to give a tough time to the Argentinian players and won by 2 0. In the press conference held by head coach Scaloni, he said that Argentina also has its playing style which is different and unique, but it doesn’t mean they keep on playing with that style. It will change with the situation of the game and the way the other team plays.
Moreover, he also commented about the previous game held with two teams, Argentina and Netherlands, against each other. One of the reporters asked about the behavior of the team during the match.
During the match, a scuffle took place between the star player Messi and the Netherlands teammates. During the scuffle, team players pushed Messi, and he fell onto the ground.
After that happened, things got further heated up, and players from the Netherlands side came to the field. However, the situation was controlled and any unfortunate event was avoided.
