Lionel Scaloni: “I’m happy Brazil qualified, anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.”

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has insisted that he’s happy for his nation’s traditional rivals Brazil after Tite’s side qualified for the last 16 at the World Cup following a 1-0 win over Switzerland in Group G. Scaloni explained:

“I’m the biggest fan of South American football and I’m happy that Brazil have qualified for the next round. Anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.”

Argentina, also a pre-tournament favourite like neighbours Brazil, have, unlike Brazil, not lived up to that label after a shock opening defeat to Saudi Arabia before struggling to a win against an underperforming Mexico side. Argentina need to beat Poland in their final Group C game to be sure of making the last 16.
