After the coach of the Argentine national team, Lionel Scaloni, said that “we play in San Juan. We are going to play in the Interior, which we all like”, the president of the AFA, Claudio “Chiqui” Tapia, supported his statements before the versions about an alleged discomfort of the players for having to leave the Monumental to face Brazil at the Bicentennial Stadium.
“Just as we believe that the River Stadium is the home of Argentina and we are very happy to play in the Monumental, the National Team is national and it is right that the Interior of the country can also receive the champions of America. Let’s all continue together!” said the San Juan who presides over the mother house of Argentine soccer.
