Giovani Lo Celso’s injury was a very hard blow for the Argentine team in the run-up to the World Cup and it was reflected in the first match.
The midfielder was already established in the team and was the link between the midfielders and the forwards. He was also a key player in the connection with Lionel Messi and was one of those who understood him the most at the Albiceleste.
Although Papu Gómez did not have a bad task, he does not seem to be the one to take over the position during the World Cup. The ideal player is Enzo Fernández, that he is living an excellent personal moment and that he already responded in the match with Saudi Arabia.

Why can he be a key player? Mainly because He has an excellent pass and that can help him associate with Messi. Another important point is that he has a good arrival at goal, a long-distance shot and also provides defensive balance.
🇦🇷 Enzo Fernández was one of the few good news today.
In a chaotic match, in his World Cup debut, and at the age of 21, he showed personality to prevail in the context.

He is a footballer who shows that responsibility does not weigh on him, that he has plenty of personality and has the necessary qualities for this final that is coming next Saturday against Mexico. Will it be the one chosen by Lionel Scaloni? Everything indicates that it will be finalized in the next few days.
