Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni spoke about the game vs. Mexico and the game vs. Poland on Wednesday.
Lionel Scaloni was at the press conference on Wednesday speaking prior to the game on Wednesday vs. Poland. Scaloni commented about the 2-0 win vs. Mexico. Here is what he had to say:
“Against Mexico, we ended up defending with five players. But we started as usual. We will do the same tomorrow. Poland also have very skilled, very fast players. We have to adapt but we won’t change much.”
Scaloni also spoke about the game vs. Poland:
“We are expecting a difficult game. Poland is a team that at times, will close the area very well and also generates situations in the area. It’s different depending on who is there. Our idea is clear. We will try to defend the dead ball with a lot of concentration.
“It’s true that most opponents change their way of playing against us but Poland have a good idea of playing and they have eleven players who could change a game. They could play with a line of four, a line of five… Although it’s known that our opponents play differently. We expect something similar, that they adapt to our idea of playing, which is pretty clear.”
When asked about Robert Lewandowski:
“He’s a great player, it’s a privilege and a pleasure to be able to see him up close like any other fan. If he is at the same level as Messi? You have to enjoy him, you don’t have to compare.”
