The DT surprised and decided to gamble for the Stuttgart striker instead of the left back.

When everything suggested that the replacement for Nicolás Tagliafico, who will not play against Paraguay due to a discomfort in the left hamstring, would be among Lisandro Martinez Y Facundo Medina, Lionel Scaloni surprised with a name that nobody had in the plans: Nicolas Gonzalez will be a starter in the Selection.

It was a busy morning on the premises of the AFA in Ezeiza. Early on, the Argentine squad carried out an activation on the main court and there the coaching staff made the decision to lower Tagliafico from the left side since they did not see him one hundred percent to go out on the court this Thursday from 21, for the third date of the Playoffs.

This prevents repeating the eleven they had won against Bolivia in La Paz, which was the intention of the 42-year-old coach. From this confirmation, the uncertainty began about who would occupy that defense sector.

The natural candidates were Martínez, who even though he is a defender knows how to act as a leading marker, and Facundo Medina. But the technician did not rush and took a few hours to analyze the required modification.

He wriggled out of the Scaloni logic, and kicked the board. He felt the face of González in the albiceleste bunker and then, minutes before leaving for La Boca, he defined that the Stuttgart attacker is the one who goes from the entrance for the first time with the T-shirt of the Selection by Eliminatory.

In this way, the DT born in Pujato left open the question about what will be the tactical drawing that he will implement. Due to the offensive characteristics of Nico González, everything indicates that the scheme would turn to one with three defenders, four midfielders and three forwards. However, from Ezeiza they did not rule out that González effectively starts as a left-handed winger to maintain the 4-3-3 that was stipulated until Wednesday’s test.

González adds just three games in the Major, one of them as a starter: in total he accumulates 98 minutes played with the blue and white. Due to injury, he missed the October call-up, but he got ready for this double day.

In this way, the eleven from Argentina will be: Franco Armani; Gonzalo Montiel, Lucas Martínez Quarta, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolas Gonzalez; Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Exequiel Palacios; Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martínez and Lucas Ocampos.
