What are Scaloni’s doubts

The main doubt of Lionel Scaloni goes through the midfield where he thinks of some names to occupy the place that historically was Gio Lo Celso, who could not attend Qatar due to injury.

The other position to review is the central marker. Scaloni no ve bien a Cuti Romerowho comes from leaving behind an injury and had little playing time, and would give the chance to Lisandro Martinez, of great moment in the Manchester United.
