ROME – Predictable management, intriguing prospects. Paul Dybala ah skipped the first friend ofArgentina in Miami, check out theHonduras, but remains in the group because it can still serve the country. It can serve the homeland. «I preferred not to use it in order not to risk – explained the coach Scaloni -, since it came from a deal muscular. But I realize it can play Tuesday against Honduras ». It’s kind of a investiture of which the Joy needed, in a period of delicate decision. In reality it will already be 8 am on Wednesday, in Italy, when Argentina will enter the field at the Red Bull Arena in Hoboken, a suburb of New York. This means that Dybalaeven starting in the early American afternoon, we will return to Rome Thursday. To then train only on Friday, on the eve of the match against Inter, just in time to get on the plane that will take the team to Milan. There society he is moving to see if it is possible shorten the times travel, perhaps sharing a charter flight with the other interested Italian teams that takes off from the United States immediately after the game.
Dybala, there is optimism
This is not the ideal situation. But it could have been worse. When Dybala he stopped in the warm-up against Atalanta, Mourinho feared losing him for a month. In truth, the player, the champion, was good at understanding what was happening: «If I had played that game I would have stopped for a long time. So I can instead come back quite quickly ». L’absence it weighed a lot since Abraham and his teammates do not seem to score, but it can be a prerequisite for challenging friends. Some evil one thought that Pauline, as Mou calls him, has saved himself to go to the national team, one month before the call-up for the World Cup. But the most important thing is that Dybala, by renouncing Atalanta, has guaranteed a more serene clinical future.
Dybala is indispensable
Moreover in the Rome who produce more scoring chances of all but fails to score his contribution is irreplaceable: 5 out of 8 goals came from his foot, including shots on goal and assists. The team without Dybala loses talent and unpredictability. As a result, he is less effective in the opponent’s penalty areas. For this he was called, to this they will return to dedicate themselves once they return to Trigoria.
There is attention
Obviously, come from the other side of the field colleague Lautaro Martinez, will not be one hundred percent in physical condition at San Siro. In recent days he has only carried out personalized training, without forcing, after an interview with the Roma doctors. But after the turbulent summer, in which Inter seduced and abandoned him, it is conceivable that his motivations are very high for the first. comparison direct. At Inter he has already scored 4 goals in 17 matches with the Juventus shirt, the last of which was in October last season. And right at San Siro, on a much contested penalty kick in the 89th minute, decisive to fix the result at 1-1. In that case Dybala started off the bench, taking over from Cuadrado in the 20 ‘of the second half. Even then, it was a muscle injury. But IArgentina had exempted him from flying in South Americalook for the best three without fielding him in world qualifying matches. Mourinho in his heart he hopes that the Argentine coach will make the same choice in New Jersey: after all this time it is only a friendly.
