    Dont agree.

    They were more dominant side in first half and could have been out of sight even if were getting pressure in midfield.

    Messi and Argentina looked out of ideas in that second half and completely frustrated.

    There is a reason Saudi Arabia changed to park bus and they wouldnt do that if felt first half went so well.

    I do feel Enzo is the best lo celso replacement they have.
    He's their missing midfield link, if they have de paul pick up hos gane. It was already better today.
    Im not sure about home alone, but he looks decent enough.

    That acu?a guy sucks though. Tagliafico is better.

    Enzo wasnt playing the Lo Celso role though.. MacAllister was.

    Enzo was the deepest mid playing position Paredes has in past with De Paul.

    Fair has f all to do with it. I dont bekieve that should be able to beat every opponent stuff either.

    Germany 2002 basically was oliver Khan, Ballack, Klose and 8 npc's. That was the easiest route ever.
    One win away from a wc win.

    From Argentina's perspective, let them pick each other apart, reach semi's and then you need some wc magic/luck.
    But first Australia.

    Enzo is an incredible player. Too bad he is linked to Real Madrid as their backup plan in case they cannot sign Bellingham

    I wanted to see him do a cameo aswell because it seems that he's the infinite bench warmer for Argentina. But if we take a simple guess it's probably because they can't be both accommodated in the starting starting XI at the same time. Both left footed, both have a similar playing style so they would overlap each other... Dybala is unfortunate to share the same position with Messi because he does have some quality in that left foot. It's funny because some people(me included)saw him as the true heir to Messi due to so many similarities, but it looks like his career kinda went downhill after 2018.

    Acuna was so shockingly bad I was praying for tagliafico, who isn't so great himself, but still miles better, and had a really good cut back after one of those classic diagonal Messi passes.
    Lautaro had a shocking miss 1v1, one of those that he really should score in later stages.
    The XI this match (except for LB) was the best available.
    Now let's see id Spain are able to beat Japan and let's watch the Germans trash Costa Rica.
