Coach Lionel Scaloni has been desperate to change tactics since Argentina’s loss against Saudi Arabia. Argentina’s great striker, Batistuta, suggests that Argentina should play with a pair of strikers to play more aggressively. Following the loss to Saudi Arabia, Argentina’s offensive flaws became clear to the rest of the team.
Striker Lautaro Martinez was not able to score at all, the biggest problem was when going into the attack because there was no contact with the midfield player. As a result, Lionel Messi had to go down in the middle of the game. To correct these mistakes Argentina was making, Argentina’s striker “Batigol” Batistuta suggested playing a pair of strikers.
This will make Argentina’s counter-attack even stronger. Attacking midfielder Lionel Messi will also be able to create more chances to score. Batistuta suggested playing in a striker pairing of Lautaro Martinez and Julian Alvarez.
Both strikers are very fond of Batistuta, Batistuta said, “I see the attack quite well, although there are no big names like before… I’m crazy about Julian Alvarez’s game, I also like Lautaro Martinez… We’re not too bad. Julian Alvarez has just arrived in Europe, albeit for a team where places are hard to come by.
Lautaro, on the other hand, has been playing for Inter Milan for almost four years and has already made a name for himself in Europe. Both of them are very established strikers. Lautaro is Inter Milan’s main striker and is only 25 years old. He joined Inter from Racing Club in 2018 and has since played 202 games across all competitions, scoring 82 goals.
He also played 41 matches for Argentina and scored 2 goals. So right now, the team is relying on him as the attacking third in Argentina. Julian Alvarez has just moved to Europe to play for Manchester City. He also scored three goals in 12 matches in the Premier League. This striker possesses an abundance of talent.
