Argentina FIFA World Cup 2022 Preview
Argentina are considered by many as one of the favorites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Argentina have recently won the 2021 Copa America as well as the Finalissima which will have lifted their spirits even more. This can also possibly be Lionel Messi’s last FIFA World Cup and the entire team will be even more motivated to give it their all and win the FIFA World Cup this year.
Who Is Argentina’s Head Coach?
Argentina’s head coach is Lionel Scaloni. After Argentina’s performance in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Lionel Scaloni and Pablo Aimar were appointed as the caretaker managers until the end of the year. In November 2018 Scaloni was confirmed as the head coach of Argentina. He led Argentia to a third place finish in the 2019 Copa America trophy and helped Argentina win the Copa America in 2021 and the Finalissima in 2022.
Argentina’s Strengths And Weaknesses
One of Argentina’s greatest strengths is Lionel Messi himself. Having one of the greatest players in the world can certainly provide a boost to your team capabilities and morale. Another major strength is the squad’s sense of togetherness. The players seem to be very close to each other which makes it easier for them to communicate and even play better for one another.
Argentina scored just 6 goals in the 2018 World Cup at an average of 1.5 goals per match but they conceded 9 goals at an average of 2.25 goals per match. Since then they have revitalized their defense and found a fantastic first team keeper in Emiliano Martinez. Their biggest weakness however is their midfield. Their midfield had an amazing performance in the 2021 Copa America tournament but the midfield is not experienced at all and only time will be able to tell if they will keep up their performances.
