The fortress and definition of Colombia were too for the Argentinian of Messi in the debut of both selections in the Glass America. Although the albiceleste carried the initiative in the second time, Roger Martínez and Duvan Zapata sentenced to the against
Badly beginning for the Argentinian of Leo Messi in the present edition of the Glass America. Lionel Scaloni confirmed the forecasts and ranged exactly the eleven that all the world expected to receive to the selection of Colombia, one of the favourites to heave with the title. Leo Messi was accompanied up by the 'Kun' Agüero, Giovani Celso and Ángel Gave María, but did not serve to drill neither once the goal of Ospina.
Colombia was better that Argentina in the first-half, but to the beginning of the second time saw how the albiceleste carried the command of the game and the initiative in the played of attack. The albiceleste wanted to step forward to undo the tie in the marker, but lamentably the bet did not go out him as it expected. Colombia took advantage of it for trenzar fast and dangerous contragolpes, of which obtained a big profit.
Like this they arrived the goals of Roger Martínez and Duvan Zapata in the minutes 71 and 86, doing añicos the illusions of an Argentinian that wished to initiate the tournament with a victory, or at least adding points against one of the hardest selections of Sudamérica. Curiously so much Roger like Duvan began the party in the bench, by what fits to stand out the tarpaulin of Carlos Queiroz in the changes.
Each one of the so many was a vase of cold water for the ones of Scaloni, that remained to zero in spite of having had more possession (53%) and have starred more finish (13 to 8) that Colombia. Argentina, in fact, did not lose in a debut of Glass America from the year 1979 (2-1 in front of Bolivia in The Peace), in a Glass America that did not play in a fixed headquarters.
Regarding Leo Messi, had of a finish of head that left diverted and left some details of quality, but once again kept in the line of his mates, without being able to participate all what would have wished. The '10' received a manotazo of Jefferson Lerma in the last minutes of the party, but fortunately recovered without problems and finish the party.
Argentina, attentive to the Paraguay-Qatar
Paraguay and Qatar will play in the next hours the another party of the group, and the ones of Scaloni safe that will expect a tie for like this have to both selections to shot. "We are a team in growth, it is necessary to improve a lot", commented Leandro Walls after the party, and did not be him reason. Messi and company will need to improve his provision in the two following parties of the phase of groups, if it is that they do not want to go home before the expected. Fortunately for them, still they have margin to aspire to big gestas in this Glass America 2019.
