With the World Cup on the horizon and possibly Lionel Messi’s last chance for an international football trophy, this friendly warm-up could play a key role in how much momentum Argentina brings to Qatar.
The return to form of key players such as Roma’s Paulo Dybala looks set to help Argentina extend their 33-game unbeaten streak, most recently in July 2019.
However, Scaloni is certainly responsible for Argentina’s silver medals by watching the America’s Cup title and final victory over Italy, but winning the first world title since 1986 certainly remains the ultimate goal and this quest begins with that warm-up against Honduras.
The Argentina national team easily qualified for the Mundial. In 17 matches, the team scored 39 points, giving way only to the Brazilians.
Honduras will not appear in Qatar in two months, but this does not mean that they will not be a severe test for Argentina.
Despite finishing last in the CONCACAF World Cup qualification group without winning any of the 14 games, Honduras has since won two of the last three international matches, including against the Canadian team that took the lead.
This certainly indicates an improvement in form, but whether this is enough to threaten the Argentine team, which ranks 40 more than Canada in the FIFA rankings, remains to be seen.
However, you never know what you’ll get from Honduras, especially in friendly matches as they have alternated between draw and defeat in their last six games, but since both teams have scored in five of those games, goals may come first.
