Argentina Gear Up for The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Well
Posted by fifaplay on August 14th, 2014
In Buenos Aires, Argentina Fut Coins led a easily home win against Trinidad and Tobago, embracing the upcoming FIFA World Cup Brazil with a brilliant beginning.
Lionel Messi is kept off the scoresheet because of his impressive reputation as a renowned striker; but Messi cannot be the only one who could gain scores for the nation team. Goals from Javier Mascherano, Maxi Rodriguez and Rodrigo Palacio who are Messi great pal of Barcelona, still couldn’t be stopped, which brought Argentina a comfortable victory.
Alejandro Sabella's team met a good time to break through in the first warm-up fixture of the World Cup. But good while didn’t mean the final victory. Argentina faced some trouble with Palacio’s netting the opening goal in first-half stoppage time.
There was a sign to tell Palacio's goal that was shot from a corner sweeping over from the left by Angel di Maria. Palacio made a firm near-post header, just a little straight at Jan-Michael Williams, the goalkeeper. However, Williams failed to cling to the ball, watching it drop over the line despairingly.
Messi nearly seized a chance to score from a free-kick in the 50th minute when he dribbled over the Trinidad and Tobago wall and against the inside of the right post. Mascherano surprisingly swept up the loose ball surprisingly, which bounced across the goal mouth for the midfielder to stick his left boot to and direct into the empty net. William, again, no choice but to watch the score jump to 2-0 to Argentina.
In the 64th minutes, Argentina achieved the third goal with the strategy of better pace to break out of defence. Inter Milan's Palacio was put behind the Trinidad and Tobago backline by Mascherano's long pass.
Messi told television station TyC Sports: "The important point is that we finished the match with no injured players. We are calm, happy with the squad we have. We'll try to play good football in the World Cup, win the next friendly and focus on the FIFA 15 PS4 COINS tournament then."
