World Cup 2022: ‘Agónico’ triumph of Argentina; will be measured vs. Netherlands in quarters

The Qatar 2022 World Cup defined the first teams to go to quarter finalswhere one of them was Argentina, which defeated Australia 2-1 in the first time that the most important soccer tournament has come to a Middle Eastern country.

Although it was the South Americans who arrived as the favorites for the round of 16 match, the Australians pressed and, at minute 28, crashed it with the goalkeeper’s hands.

The actions that gave Argentina the pass to the quarterfinals

At 34, in the first shot at goal of those led by Scaloni after a stopped ball, Lionel Messi sentenced the 1-0 in a first part in which they did not see many clear goal opportunities.

This result excited the albicelestes in the first half to face the Netherlands in the next phase, who beat the United States 3-1 in the first game of the day on December 3.

Shortly after the second half, Argentina made a change; Darío Gómez came out -who was iced on the bench- and Lisandro Martínez entered the field of the Ahmad bin Ali stadium. The goalkeeper went wrong and the ball remained Julián Álvarez, who defined the 2-0 at 56. Australia responded with two changes.

At 65 Messi missed one when he sent his shot well above the rival goal. After 70 minutes, the soccer players Marcos Acuña and Julián Álvarez left Argentina, but Nicolás Tagliafico and Lautaro Martínez entered, who came to cause danger after a few seconds.

Craig Goodwin finished off from outside the area at 77 and got in by hitting one of Dibu Martínez’s sides, a goal that Australia celebrated. Ezequiel Palacios and Gonzalo Montiel exhausted the changes for the albiceleste while the Australians pressed and narrowly scored the second goal. Ten minutes later Argentina had one via Lautaro; then he tossed it over.

Messi had an up in compensation time. Later they had several shots, but they could not specify. Shortly before the end, the goalkeeper was left with a ball that was going inside.
