One of the key pieces of the Argentine National Team in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Rodrigo De Paul, assured that together with his teammates from the Albiceleste, they celebrated the defeat of Brazil at the hands of Croatia from the penalty kicks. This situation was criticized by coach Lionel Scaloni, who asked his players to focus on their own and recalled that they had to go out to win.
The statement was made in an interview with TyC Sports, where he also assured that Scaloni’s words were a challenge for the team, which motivated them to win the semifinal against the Croats. “When we celebrated the elimination of Brazil in the penalty kicks against Croatia, Scaloni just came in and farted on all of us; he also told us ‘now you have to go out and win the next game‘”.
In the same way, De Paul highlighted that behind closed doors and despite the defeat against Saudi Arabia in the debut, the team was very confident in achieving the results. In his opinion, the Argentina National Team for the Qatar 2022 World Cup is the best in the history of soccer in his country and he affirms it because before the World Cup they beat Brazil, champion of America, Italy, champion of Europe and finally in Qatar against France, who were the current world champions.
De Paul who was highly criticized in Argentina’s first games in Qatar, assured that the final against France is the best in the history of the World Cups and he is also excited by the fact of thinking about what will be the next presentation of the team at the Monumental stadium, where they will be able to exhibit the World Cup in front of their audience in a stadium that will surely be bursting to experience that historic moment.
