The selection of Argentina has not had a simple start in the Glass America. It initiated his career with defeat against Colombia, empató the second party against Paraguay and his first victory did not arrive until the last meeting of the first turn, against Qatar. In spite of a game that leaves doubts, the albiceleste is in quarter-finals, where will measure to Venezuela.

Rivaldo, ex player of the FC Barcelona and ex international and champion of the World-wide with Brazil, commented the path of the team of Lionel Scaloni for Betfair. "What have seen up to now of Argentina in this Glass America was the planned. Have grandísimos players, but is a combined that is in constant renewal and like this is difficult", began.

Brazil is favourite for the Glass America and, in semifinals, could toparse with Argentina. But the presence of Leo Messi does that the ex Brazilian player think that the albiceleste can give the surprise. "Claro that it will not be a simple way arrive until the final, but when have to Messi... All is possible! Messi comes up in these big parties. It is just now when Argentinian more needs it and Leo knows to answer to these challenges", ensured.

"The best for Neymar is to return to the Barcelona, ask pardon to the fans and show arrepentimiento"

The Balloon of Gold of 1999 regretted the misfortune of Messi with his selection. "Messi has had bad luck in his big appointments with Argentina. In the final of the World-wide 2014 or in the one of the Glass America that lost against Chile did not have the fortune that, for example, we had against Germany in the final of 2002", said, remembering that "the first goal of Ronaldo arrived after the ball rebounded in Kahn, that was the best goalkeeper of the world. The destination was of our part. This help".

For Rivaldo, Messi would have to win the Balloon of Gold, since it is merecedor of him. "I sincerely think that Messi has done sufficient already to be the Balloon of Gold because we speak of an individual prize. They go Dijk? It would be necessary to ask if it has been so influential in the defence of the Liverpool like Messi is it in the attack of the Barcelona. Anyway, if it attains to win the Glass America, surely will have a big paper in this success and this would give him a big impulse to guarantee another Balloon of Gold", ensured.

On the other hand, it regretted the absence of Neymar in the Glass America by injury. "Brazil is playing well, but Neymar always misses and in my opinion is unquestionable, the reference of the team. Some that the level that is showing , especially in the triumph in front of Peru is well, clear. Because Brazil has a lot of players of big level in the staff, but Neymar is different", admitted.

For Rivaldo, the crack of the PSG is key in the team of Tite. "It is the player that marks the differences. It would be well that Brazil won this Glass America because this would reinforce the spirit of team of face to the World-wide of 2022, but if they can win it without Neymar, of course that they could attain it also with him in the team", sentenced.

Neymar, to the Barça?

Rivaldo Thinks that to go back to the Camp Nou would be the best for Neymar. "The best for him is to return, ask pardon somehow to the fans and show some gesture of arrepentimiento. After all, it is in the Barcelona where safe that will feel better and will be able to play his best football. Surely it have to go down the wage, but that this sacrifice will be worth it if it is able to recover the happiness that had", concluded.
