Pizzi Praises the Performance of the Green-shirted Team Players against South Korea

The National Team's Argentinean Coach, Juan Antonio Pizzi, praised the level of the green-team's players in the friendly match against South Korea, which ended in a negative tie in their preparations for the 2019 Asian Cup.

"It was an interesting match between two outstanding teams. Both of them imposed their style of playing in a match that I consider to be mondial, and this is what we were looking for before the 2019 Asian Cup", Pizzi told reporters at the press conference after the match.

"We rely on the players' performance in the training sessions, as well as the nature of the opponent we will encounter, and we, as a technical team, do not restrict ourselves to a certain style and tactics of playing", he add.

As for the replacement of Yasser Al-Shahrani, Pizzi said: "We took him out as a precautionary action, and initially neither Yasser nor any other player who participated in today's match has any injuries."

He concluded: "We have to play our Asian Cup matches in the same way that we showed today against South Korea in terms of seriousness and concentration."
