Argentina vs Nicaragua Match Preview

Argentina gain match practice for what is a tough Copa America group-stage schedule by facing CONCACAF Gold Cup challengers Nicaragua in their first ever meeting.

Lionel Scaloni, who only retired from playing with Serie A club Atalanta four years ago, has been confirmed as Argentina manager until the end of the Copa America and his prospects of staying in charge will obviously depend on how the team fares in Brazil.

It will not be easy for the Albiceleste because their initial three opponents are Colombia, Paraguay and invited Asian champions Qatar, so they will need to be on song to reach a fifth Copa America final out of six – and they have lost all of the previous four.

That means, of course, that Lionel Messi has still to win a major international tournament and chances are running out for the Barcelona maestro, likewise his fellow 31-year-old forward Sergio Aguero who is back in the squad after missing international duty since the World Cup.

Nicaragua, meanwhile, are through to a second consecutive CONCACAF Gold Cup appearance having made a meek exit in 2017, but at least taking on Costa Rica, Haiti and Bermuda later this month gives them some chance of improving upon those results.

There is obviously a huge gulf in quality between these teams and with Argentina now more solid defensively under Scaloni, and with Messi, Aguero, Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria as attacking options, an easy home win is anticipated.
