AArgentina continues to be congratulated on the football field. Not only because Albiceleste's success at the World Cup in Qatar is still remembered, but because with last night's victory over eternal rival Brazil in the Pre-Olympic final in Venezuela, it is taken for granted that there is a generational change.
His coach, Javier Mascherano, is already thinking about the Paris Olympic Gamesevent for which I will leave as the main candidate for the gold medalalso taking into account that it has already eliminated one of its biggest competitors, Endrick's Brasil.
And with practically no time to react, the under-23 coach was faced with this shortly after winning the victory with the possibility of having two flashy employees on the next Olympic team. These two names are none other than those of Leo Messi and Angel Di Mara.
“You have to be careful. Everyone knows my relationship with Leo and Ángel. We are friends. As a coach, I have an obligation to invite them, but it is also understood that they have other commitments and will depend on this. It's not that easy. There is time to talk about this”, acknowledged Javier Mascherano in relation to the inclusion of Messi and Di María in the Paris 2024 list.
Although Ángel di María has already officially said that his period as an absolute international has already ended, the '10' Albiceleste continues as the undisputed leader of Scaloni's team, which begins the group stage of the Copa América on June 21st.
Taking into account, in the case of Leo Messi, that The Olympic Games start on July 24th is that, If Argentina reaches the last match of the Copa América again, it will be played on July 15th, the dates will be very fair. All this without taking into account the fact that Inter Miami competes in MLS from this coming February 22nd until October 20th.
One way or another, Javier Mascherano try to make his friends and colleagues achieve what he achieved on two occasions, Olympic gold in Athens and Beijing. In the latter he was one of the three selected over 23 years old that Batista called up, along with Nicols Burdisso and John Romn Riquelme.
