Argentina's statements

Prior to this match, Lionel Scaloni spoke to the media: "I am not going to confirm the team yet because we just had our first training session yesterday. We talked to most of the players to see how they are physically. It won't change much from the last match of the cup final".
"I want to emphasize the predisposition of our players for wanting to be there. It's a step forward that this national team has taken. With respect to the clubs, we have never had any refusal. We talked and came to the conclusion that they had to come".
"Now a new challenge begins. All the teams will want to beat the champion. We need to get points and have a good qualifying round".

Venezuela statements

Leonardo González, interim technical director of the Vinotinto spoke before the match: "The idea is to have a team that can generate scoring chances, that somehow has the ball and in that way bring out the advantage of having such fast and skillful players up front".
"We need this team to be able to attack more, to be lively, to bring out that hunger for the game, that individual technique, that individual richness from the middle up. We will try to make them go out and have fun with responsibility and give their all on the pitch."
"In these last 10 games the last six or seven goals that have been scored against us have come from set pieces. We are trying to get the players to be more focused, with some plays we are working on, we will try to hurt the opponent as well."

To heal wounds

Venezuela did not advance beyond the group stage in the Copa América, a situation that led to the resignation of José Peseiro, which resulted in Leonardo González being appointed as interim coach of the Vinotinto. In the qualifying rounds, Venezuela will be looking for three points, as it has only 4 points, placing it in second to last place in the table.

Good spirits
