World Cup Qatar 2022: a painful fall and the expectation set on Saturday

Lionel Scaloni lamented the defeat against Saudi Arabia in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and stated that “it is a sad day” in a post-match press conference, although he remarked that “there is no other choice but to get up and win the two games” that remain in the Group C.

“A sad day”

“It’s hard to assimilate because in four or five minutes they scored the two goals… I think they were the only shots on goal. Worse, there’s no other choice but to get up, move on and win the next two games. We don’t have to analyze anymore than that. Today is a sad day but with our heads up and continue, as we always say”.

A “strange” party

“The first half I think it was all ours, certain situations at another time were a goal. At halftime we said that the game was strange, a goal can change anything and that’s how it happened. They tie us and in the next play they make us 2nd 1. I haven’t spoken to the players yet, logically. They are in pain and thinking about the adverse result, but also about turning the situation around. It’s about winning the next games and that’s what we’re at.”

The offsides, “millimetric”

Asked about the goals in an advanced position that were annulled at the behest of the VAr, he pointed out: “We already knew how Arabia played, in fact we were preparing the game during the week and we knew that the defensive line played advanced. Some were millimetric, that’s what it has the new technology out there, but beyond that (the Saudis) do it and they do it well.”
