The smiling smile requested permission and was seen in Lionel Skalon's face while listening to Cesar Luis Menotti on the left. "Every time you decide, it is very likely that the coach does not sleep for two or three nights, because every decision destroys the dream of a child who is not on the list, the responsibility of the national team coach is very large. is to leave a child outside, "he said lean in the conference room of Ezeiza, supportive of Argentina's technique, beyond any difference in opinion that he could make public.
"I Learn When I Listen to It", the young DT returns the wall. As Cesar says. We know what it means to leave a player outside. And when it is time to choose 23 … Yes, this is part of our work, but that does not mean we do not suffer it. It was complicated days. Doubts are always available when there are so many players to choose from. We met up to the last minute to clarify the doubts, "says Skalloni with the 23 faces of the Brazilian elected Copa America and confirmed this Tuesday at noon.

What are the doubts the coach has decided on holiday?
In the archway were Andrad and Armani, but there was a place between Agustin Marquesin and Juan Musso. Very good news about the former "Lanus" in America of Mexico was ultimately more.
The biggest surprises were in the defense. The coach preferred the youth and future of Juan Noah over the experience of Gabriel Mercado. – It was one or the other. This is not a substitution.
