The goals ‘charrúas’ They arrived near the end of each half. First, the lateral Ronald Araujo defined as ‘nine’ and he sent it away with a right hand. Then the forward Darwin Núñezthe product of a lethal counterattack, declared the score 2-0.
The stumble of the ‘yellow green’ It was even more painful. They took the lead on the scoreboard with an early goal from the attacker Gabriel Martinelli (4′); nevertheless, Colombia It only needed four minutes of inspiration from one of its stars, Luis Diaz, to turn it around. The Liverpool winger, as if he were a centre-forward, scored two great headed goals, unleashing the euphoria of all the fans. ‘coffee growers’including his father.
For this reason, both teams will have all their artillery in this match, although the Brazilians arrive with many casualties. To the confirmed absences of goalkeeper Ederson, full-back Danilo, midfielder Casemiro and attackers Richarlison and Neymar, was added that of Vinicius Jr. The Real Madrid player came out in the duel against ‘tricolor’ and, later, the severity of his injury was confirmed: a tear in the femoral biceps.
Following the injury of ‘come’the technician Fernando Diniz He is already thinking about his replacement, which has not yet been defined. There are two names on the board, one is Joao Pedro from Brighton & Hove Albion and another is Gabriel Jesus from Arsenal.

Likewise, there is a doubt regarding the companion of Di María and Lionel Messi in that attacking trident. The great presents of Julian Alvarez in the Premier League and Lautaro Martínez in Serie A they generate a huge headache for the technical command ‘gaucho’.
In that sense, the Argentine team would start in the following way: Emiliano ‘Return’ Martínez in goal; Nahuel Molina, Cristian Romero, Nicolás Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico in the defensive line of four; Rodrigo De Paul, Enzo Fernández and Alexis Mac Allister will share the midfield; Ángel Di María, Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martínez or Julián Álvarez up front.
The Brazilian team, for its part, will command this eleven: Alisson between the three sticks; Emerson Royal, Marquinhos, Gabriel Magalhaes and Carlos Augusto in defense; André and Bruno Guimaraes will divide half of the field; Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesús or Joao Pedro, Rodrygo and Raphinha as the four attackers.
