Teacher Oscar Washington Tabarez occur after the difficult defeat of Uruguay Against Argentina in the South American qualifiers towards the Qatar World Cup 2022 In a conference, Celeste coach highlighted the performance of the opponent, analyzed the reasons for the result and emphasized the team to show rebellion in the face of what is coming.
In response to a question about the superiority shown by the opponent, the Uruguay coach said:Argentina capped at this time a development of years that has led them to stabilize their game a lot, their team, won a continental title and, in my opinion, the most unique point for the team is when they find spaces in the periphery of the competing area. The idea of regime change was to populate the area and try to counter that. At first it was happening and we had some chances that the Argentinian goalkeeper solved, but as the minutes went by they were taking the match exactly there, where we didn’t want that. Sometimes there are goals such as the first one that was unexpected mainly because of the format, but then the result was completely justified. We tried to get back into the game, but the goals came at crucial moments“.
He added that “We could not determine. Aside from a good defense, when you get the ball back you have to take it to the opponent’s area and we did that only in the first minutes. Then Argentina dominated the match, which also has Messi, the leading Messi at the moment, and this makes itself felt on the pitch.“.
On the reasons for the defeat, the Uruguay coach said:we could not. Football is a very special sport, you can play for 120 minutes and go from 0 to 0, and those that determine the fluctuations of confidence and unease are the goals, the only quantifiable facts that exist. A beautiful step if it does not turn into results that does not change the relationship of forces. That’s what happened, Argentina gained confidence when they had spaces, all of these things interconnected and made the result huge“.
In one of the most intriguing moments of the press conference, the teacher was consulted about his most concern about La Celeste’s performance, to which he replied: “Coaches always have fears, and I think what a coach should do is take care of the problems and figure out how to solve them. There were very important players in our football who were not there and we do not have an equal number of players, as in Argentina. Today we missed Giorgian de Arrascaeta and Rodrigo Bentancur playing a key role, as well as others who were. As a coach once said, “You have to close the sphincter, everyone and most importantly the mouth. The only thing that can defend ourselves is the results we can get in the future, and that’s what we’re going to focus on to start tomorrow.”“.
Looking to the future, Tabarez said,This group knows that in difficult moments they have to put their best face forward, it hurts all of us. You compete to try to win and when that is not achieved and you are overcome you must have the humility to recognize the superiority of the opponent, but you must also have the rebellion“.
Finally, the Uruguay captain highlighted what could be salvaged from such a negative night: “He tried to implement the plan we set, but to no avail. He knew how to suffer in court and have a rebellion. Losing is a loser, and the feeling is different if you lose by one goal or if you lose by three. That was a slap in the face for us, but between us we’re going to try to get out of this game because we’re still in the playoffs zone.“.
