Messi makes the distinction but Brazil, Argentina continues their work in progress

The next CONMEBOL World Cup qualification will be the most competitive exploration on the planet. Argentina will set off with a leap in their stride on the long way from Riyadh to Qatar, and Brazil will have much to think about after losing 1-10 in Saudi Arabia by a goal from Lionel Messi, who will return to the international football after the suspension of three months. Messi’s journey with his national team has been obstructed by the propensity of the defense to self-destruct. It didn’t take much time for that to happen again as Juan Foyth was seized in occupancy in his area, and Leandro Paredes stumbled Gabriel Jesus. It was a clear penalty, but Gabriel Je3sus revolved the ensuing spot-kick wide of the post.

Argentina’s defense did not self-destruct again, and there are two simple reasons why. Firstly the pre-match words of Lionel Messi, besides two center forward, proved to be just that. In Copa America, that structure left the team front charged. With both Sergio Aguero and Lautaro Martinez up front, Argentina was shard to the counter-attack, and the lack of protective pace was easily disclosed. This time Aguero remained on the bench when Lucas Ocampo stepped in and split on the right of the midfield.

Argentina took the conduct soon after the missed penalty by Brazil. Argentina composed two banks of four through the field, and Brazil had so many issues breaking them down that Keeper Esteban Andrada did not have a single shot at defending and barely an alarm. There is Brazil who is worrying about a lack of new attacking ability. From winning the Copa America, they have not succeeded in five games in their 28 years. They have stretched Senegal, Colombia, and Nigeria and have gone down to Peru and Argentina.  But for this moment, Argentina will surprisingly for5m towards the challenge of the competitive matches with more peace in mind than Copa America.
