Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni spoke at a press conference on Friday about the team’s match vs. Australia, VAR at the World Cup and the support of fans from Bangladesh.

Lionel Scaloni was at the press conference on Friday where he had spoken about Ángel Di María but also about the Round of 16 match and the use of VAR so far. Speaking about Australia, here is what he had to say:

“Australia is a good team, it’s 11 against 11 like they said yesterday. You have to put aside the theoretical favoritism and play the game. Our idea is to play like we did in the last games.

“Their form doesn’t surprise me, they are a good team with a tradition in World Cups and that makes it difficult.”

In regards to VAR:

“We lived it and it’s really difficult to digest, especially because it’s a very new thing and it’s implemented in a World Cup. It’s like that for everyone.”

About the fans from Bangladesh:

“We’re filled with pride that a country like Bangladesh supports us like that. We’re really thankful for all their love.”
