Mexico City /
When the draw for the Qatar World Cup 2022 and the calendar of the Albicelestemore than one Argentine celebrated, since they considered it very simple and they would advance without problems.
Facing the start of the World Cup and with an undefeated record of 36 games, the Argentine team would start against Saudi Arabia, selection that on paper was the least likely to do something important in the fair.
There were even those who assured that the only concern of the Arabs in the match against the South Americans would be to see who was going to keep the shirt of Lionel Messi after the confrontation.
It is the case of Rodolfo Cingolania commentator for TyC Sports, who minimized ‘Los hijos del desierto’, assuring that they had no chance of going through the round and were only focused on keeping the elastic ’10’ albiceleste.
“I want to be cautious, I want to be measured, but The only illusion that those from Saudi Arabia should have is to get Messi’s shirt.
“What illusions are going to be made to go to the second round? The trophy is to take Messi’s shirt,” he said without knowing what was going to be presented to the Argentines.
