Recital of Messi and Colombia awaits in Brasilia

Argentina He started the quarterfinals as usual: overwhelming his rival, in this case, Ecuador. Nicolas Gonzalez on the left side I tried, then it was Lautaro Martinez the one who after a great pass from Walls in depth put to the test Galindez, which responded very well. The team of Alfaro suffered and just breathed with long balls towards Valencia, which he prolonged for his swift extremes to complicate the Argentina.

Alfaro he sent his men to play long but not go crazy with it, if not that the rebounds fell into the power of the yellows and Valencia attacked the Argentine central line. Pezzella Y Otamendi, the pair of centrals most used by Scaloni In his short coaching career, he suffered at the start and the setback.

And the defender of the Fiorentina had a clear after a corner taken by Messi. He lowered her chest and hit her with a right hand that hit the side of the Galindez while some members of the substitute bench were already shouting the first goal of the match.

Argentina dominated but in his own field. Alfarointelligent in this sense, he let the Pezzella and cut it to Walls, so the albiceleste had to look for other exits. And there came a play totally out of the game, a key play, Messi he was left alone against Galindez after a back pass and the ‘10‘Argentine defined too crossed so that the ball remains in the left post of the goalkeeper.

And from the Argentine chance, to the Ecuadorian court. The game was tense, a hard tackle on Molina what Sampaio did not charge it ended in a shot of Mendez to which he responded with category Emi Martinez. Scaloni he was going crazy on the substitute bench and the fourth official had to calm him down. No time for calm Mendez Y Palm collided with each other and infringed It Celso, but Lautaro Martinez in the rebound he was totally alone, to which Sampaio he ignored it and the game was getting hotter and hotter.

After the half hour of meeting, the only protagonist of this match was Wilton Sampaio. The Brazilian was the only one who complicated a quiet game with his bad decisions. ArgentinaIn spite of this, he continued trying to take control of the party, which he could not achieve. Ecuador, when he stood in three quarters of attack, he moved the ball well and this time ended with a great center to which Valencia Y Palm they could not arrive. It was saved Argentina.

The game had a frenetic pace. It was stick and stick. Ecuador, with mistakes behind, was punished. Y Messi He forgives you once, but He does not forgive you twice. A great pass for Nico Gonzalez ended in a violation of Galindez but this time Sampaio Yes it gave the law of advantage so that Messi, very intelligent, would look for From Paul so that the Udinese calmly define and score the first goal of the match, so that Scaloni He shouted it with everything in the technical area and the former Racing added his first goal with the albiceleste shirt.

González was still spicy but Galindez saved Ecuador one more time. The new player of the Fiorentina He headed a Messi free kick masterfully and the goalkeeper saved his team twice. Ecuador it was hit by the Argentine goal but in an isolated play, it created danger. Valencia He beat for the umpteenth time Otamendi and then go find the center. The striker was nodding out and Otamendi he was reprimanded for protesting. Thus ended the first half of the game, which had no brake.

Alfaro gave his team more air at the beginning of the complement with the entry of Silver Y Estrada. But The Celso gave something different to Argentina when it was released and that was taken advantage of by those of Scaloni. Argentina tried to slow down the pace of the game while Ecuador was interested in making it agitated, in addition to trying to take advantage of the stopped ball, where it created more danger.

Enner Valencia It was a constant danger for the Argentine central duo, who could not stop the forward, while Ecuador continued with its game almost at the limit of the regulation and Stupiñán put his body in front of a Messi that was beaten on the ground. At that time it was the fifth fault of Stupiñán of the ten that had made the set of Alfaro.

Sampaio continued with the same dynamics of the first half and heated the meeting with his decisions. Inside the area fell Walls and the Argentines threw themselves on top of the referee, who charged a neutral pot, from which Messi trying to do magic with a hat.

But at set ball he almost tied the game Ecuador, with a very dangerous deviation from Nico Gonzalez, which almost went into the angle. The ex Argentinians Juniors with a back kick to Silver he became the second admonished.

Scaloni saw his team off, as happens in all second halves of the Argentine team and put Guido Rodriguez Y Angel Di Mary, so they left the court Leandro Walls, a surprise and The Celso.

When Ecuador it was down half a change, Argentina had scoring chances thanks to its individual quality. Y Messi, first with a shot from afar and then with a free kick, he tried, but did not get the long-awaited goal.

Plata was the great revelation of the second half and it painted the face of the Argentine defenders. The Ecuadorian was a constant danger and made suffer Scaloni, who decided to reinforce the left side of the defense by putting the famous ‘double 3’, with Acuna Y Tagliaphic, entering by Nico Gonzalez.

But Say Maria pressured Emphasis, who had a rookie error and the ball was left to Messi, who gave it to Lautaro Martinez that only did not fail and put the second Argentine goal in a second half that had not played well at all. The young man Emphasis made a mistake again and was expelled after being grabbed at Say Maria.

Y Messi. Today ‘free player’ had to join the party. Free kick from the edge of the area to the goalkeeper’s post and Galindez, of great game, could not do anything before such genius. Two assists and a goal, in a masterful game, in a game in which he could not convert a goal almost made, but Messi still sharp and all the Argentina smile.
