Football: Bulgaria – Northern MacedoniaThursday, 19:00, live at Digi Sport 1
The goals of the South Americans were scored by Lautaro Martinez (min. 28), Angel Di Maria (min. 45 + 1) and Paulo Dybala (90 + 4).
Even if the match started in a certain domination of the Italians, very dangerous on the counterattack game, Argentina tightened the ranks, closed the spaces, practiced a better possession and put total control on the game.
The end of the half found them with an advance of two goals on the table, but the difference was made, each time, by the individual super-class of Lionel Scaloni’s players. At the first goal, Messi gets rid of Di Lorenzo in a key area and passes decisively to Martinez, and at the second goal, Martinez sees a brilliant pass to Di Maria, and the former PSG player also has an execution of effect – a staircase next to his former colleague from Paris, Gianluigi Donnarumma.
In the second act, the score could have been much higher in favor of Argentina. One by one, Di Maria, Lionel Messi and Lo Celso missed huge opportunities.
Lionel Messi was the man who showed a desire to play as I have rarely seen in the last year. He recalled his heyday, when he had no opponent on the field. He recovered, he passed, he dribbled, he shot. The only thing he missed was the goal
The last goal was scored by Paulo Dybala, also free of contract at this moment, who had entered only two minutes. He received a simple pass from Messi and defeated Donnarumma with a long corner kick.
