According to the latest information Vn88 received, recently the Argentine team announced a successful contract extension with head coach Lionel Scaloni.
Fabrizio Romano said the Argentine Football Association has reached an agreement to extend Lionel Scaloni’s contract until 2026. The president of the Argentine Football Federation (AFA) Claudio Tapia said: “I am proud to announce that we have agreed a new agreement. of Scaloni until the 2026 World Cup.”
Vn88cx believes that this is a worthy achievement after the 44-year-old patriarch’s dedication to La Albiceleste over the past time. After Jorge Sampaoli was fired in 2018, Scolani from his assistant role took over as interim coach, before being officially appointed as head coach.
That was the time when the Argentina team fell into crisis when they soon stopped in the 1/8 round of the 2018 World Cup. However, only 3 years later, Scolani led the Tango team to win the Copa America 2021 championship, ending 28 long and empty years. This is also the first major title of Lionel Messi in the national team shirt.
Under the leadership of the 44-year-old coach, La Albiceleste is on a 35-match unbeaten streak in all competitions, since July 2019. Recently, the defending South American champion beat Jamaica with a score of 3-0 in a friendly match, in which Lionel Messi contributed a double, the other goal was scored by Julian Alvarez.
Vn88 believes that this is definitely a boost for coach Scolani and his students, before the start of the 2022 World Cup campaign taking place at the end of November.
Scaloni was tasked with helping Argentina win the world championship again at the World Cup in Qatar, which kicks off in less than two months. However, the AFA have shown full confidence in the 44-year-old strategist ahead of the upcoming tournament and have extended his contract until 2026.
Argentina is considered one of the leading contenders for the 2022 World Cup championship taking place in Qatar. Their strikers like Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala and Lautaro Martinez have all been in good form in recent months and that will be the fulcrum for Albiceleste to dream high.
