It is four years away to the next World Cup. How could assess the line up if the tournament started right now? And what kind of measures they need to do before the upcoming 2022 World Cup. The early exit at the 2018 FIFA World Cup means the Argentina squad intends to clean house and to adjust strategies. It’s unclear that whether Messi could win the opportunity for the 2022 World Cup. Besides, some veterans perhaps will leave World Cup forever.
Some may wonder why Giovani Lo Celso in the No.22 shirt didn’t play for their team in Russia. The on-loan PSG midfielder once impressed all people with wonderful performances at Real Betis. Argentina national football team needs more gifted footballers in defence. Juan Foyth is probably become a link of the defensive front. He stands 1.90m tall and owns extraordinary capability in pitches. With the guide from Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, he would grow up in short time and become more and more skillful.
Unless miracles occur, a talented footballer is not enough for a team to deal with complicated conditions in pitches. Argentina could cultivate more great football players, but building up team spirits needs long term. Improving on performances in various stage is a real challenge for them.
When it comes to the candidate of next manager of Argentina national football team, we have no idea about it. It said that the former interim replacement Lionel Scaloni will continue taking the position until the next year’s Copa America. No matter who take the next tenure, it is necessary to consolidate the playing style and to equip footballers with experience. In the meantime, defensive front and midfielders should be strengthened, too.
Let’s turn to Belgium national football team now. The greatest hope falls on Tielemans, aged 21, who could mature into a first-class midfield gift. Another footballer — Timothy Castagne, aged 22, starts to scramble to the right wing-back position. Although he is only 19 years old, Zinho Vanheusden from the club Inter Milan could grow into a center-back in short time, as the stock to replace ageing center-backs.
In spite of the ageing “golden generation” and weakening energy of footballers in pitches, the last four-hour finish is also could be expected in 2022. Although young footballers are possible to integrate into senior level, but the best results are the last eight. The strength in center-back need to be improved, because Dedryck Boyata aged 27 and Jason Denayer aged 23 stepped down from incumbents. The right balance is needed in case the Belgium national football team intend to go with wing-backs. Then Jordan Lukaku is the promising candidate as the alternative of Carrasco on the left.
The conditions of rest national football teams will be analyzed next time. In a word, we all hope to look rising of excellent footballers and their wonderful performances in pitches. More information will be seen next time.
