.Hey! Since the south american qualifiers are a mess rn since Colombia lost this is a quick guide to what can happen.
It’s important to notice that Brazil is already qualified and no one can take the top of the table from us so everyone is fighting for the last 3 automatic spots and the 5th place that will get you to play offfs;
Uruguay is honestly basically in too, maybe not in the 2th place but it will be almost impossible to get them out so with all of those scenarios im working with that idea that they will win against Bolivia (Who is already out, just like Venezuela, Ecuador and Paraguai) and so there are 3 places left to fill.
The games that can change everything are Brazil vs Chile, Argentina vs Ecuador and Peru vs Bolivia. Diferent results will get you diferent qualified teams.
It’s also important to remember that the ONLY scenario where Argentina can get away with a draw is if Peru loses, any other thing likely gets them out. Peru’s numbers are better.
In case all of them draw their games then Chile and Colombia (27 points) get the automatic spots with Peru going to play offs and Argentina staying out (Peru has better numbers and a draw is more likely not enough to give Arg a numeric vantage). This also happens if Chile ties and both lose or Chile wins and both tie.
If Chile wins, Argentina win and Peru loses, then Chile and Colombia get the automatic spots (29 points), Argentina goes to play offs (28 points) and Peru stays out (25 points)
If they all win then Chile (29 points) get the automatic spot and Argentina and Peru will one get the other spot and the other play offs (28 points), while Colombia (26 points) stays out.
If Chile wins, Argentina loses and Peru wins then Chile and Peru get the automatic spots (29 and 28 points), Colombia goes to play offs (26 points) and Argentina stay out (25 points)
In case Chile ties, and both Argentina and Peru win then Colombia stays out (26 points), Argentina and Peru get automatic spots (28 points each) and Chile goes to play offs (27 points).
In case Chile ties, Argentina loses and Peru wins, then Chile and Peru get automatic spots (27 and 28 points), Colombia gets the play offs (26) and Argentina stays out (25 points).
If Chile ties, Argentina wins and Peru loses, then Colombia and Argentina get the automatic pots (29 and 28 points), Chile goes to play offs (27 points) and Peru stays out (25 points)
In case Chile loses and both win, then they ge the automatic spots (28 points), and i honestly don’t know if it’s Chile or Colombia who get the 5th since both will have the same points (26)
If Chile loses, Argentina loses and Peru wins, Peru get’s the automatic spot (28 points) while Chile and Colombia (26 points) will get the other spot and the play offs, and Argentina stays out (25 points)
If chile loses, Argentina wins and Peru loses then Colombia and Argentina get the automatic spots (29 and 28 points), Chile goes to play offs (26 points) and Peru stay out (25 points).
There are maybe some missing things and maybe some of them are wrong but i think it’s basically this? There is a lot of things that can happen honestly
When he was a kid, Lionel Messi used to take a one-hour siesta in the afternoon. He would sleep 10 hours a night. He wasn’t really bothered.
He is still a pretty calm guy at 27 years old, by accounts of his teammates and those around him. “You see him warming up and he’s as calm as a kid who’s going to play on the field around the corner,” said Fernando Signorini, Argentina’s fitness trainer, in the book Messi: A Biography. The Maracanã, the World Cup final, is not exactly a game on a field around the corner, but it is his last frontier, the chance to be fully embraced by the country he left when he was 11, to share the same mantle as Maradona.
Messi understands this moment. “My hopes and dreams are being fulfilled due to the hard work and sacrifice of a team that has given everything from match one,” he wrote on Facebook. But this feels almost more about his own legacy than it does about Argentina.
10 years ago today Argentina won the FIFA World Youth Cup in the Netherlands by beating Nigeria in the final (2-1). Lionel Messi scored both goals from the penalty spot. He finished the tournament as Best Player en got the Award for being top goalscorer (6 goals)
