Argentina national team set their eyes on most unbeaten run in football history

Lionel Scaloni was appointed Argentina boss on a full-time basis in 2018 after an initial interim period, and took his nation to third place at the 2019 Copa America just a year later.

Since then, Scaloni has worked wonders to turn La Albiceleste into a consistently threatening outfit, refreshing the squad and getting more out of their immense blend of talent. Their two trophies in two years now highlights this, but so does their unbeaten run.

Scaloni has lost just four times since taking charge of Argentina and has now carved out an unbeaten streak of 32 games, spanning over three years.

WHAT HAPPENED? The forward has landed in Florida along with Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Nicolas Tagliafico to link up with the Argentina squad for two pre-World Cup friendlies. Lionel Scaloni will look to fine-tune his preparations for the 2022 World Cup with the warm-up games against Jamaica and Honduras.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Argentina will prepare for both games at Inter Miami’s training session. The Albiceleste’s first fixture is against Honduras on September 23 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Argentina will then head to New Jersey to take on Jamaica at the Red Bull Arena on September 27.

AND WHAT’S MORE: Messi has been in strong form for PSG this season after a tough first campaign following his move from Barcelona. The attacker has six goals and eight assists already and looks to be heading into what will surely be his final World Cup in great shape. Argentina will be one of the favorites for the trophy following their Copa America success in 2021.

DID YOU KNOW? Messi’s goal against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League saw him edge past Cristiano Ronaldo and become the first player to score against 39 different teams in Europe’s top competition.

WHAT NEXT FOR MESSI? The forward will head back to PSG after the international break with the team’s first game against Nice on October 1.
