Lionel Scaloni spoke at a press conference on Thursday and one of the topics of discussion was Rodrigo De Paul’s fitness. Several media outlets out of Argentina had reported that De Paul was not fit. Speaking at the press conference, here is what Scaloni had to say:
“Yesterday we had training behind closed doors. I don’t know how you know that Rodrigo might have something strange. So, if they are feeling well, then we will see in today’s training if they will be in the line-up.
“He (De Paul) trained yesterday, also Di Maria trained yesterday. Sometimes, players who have played before, will only complete half of the training. We will see today if they are able to play or not. The information you get from the press is difficult to manage.”
