Dunga Believes Argentina Remain Strong Despite Messi’s Absence

An interesting World Cup qualifier battle in Conmenbol is set to occur this week when Argentina host Brazil, in an important encounter for both teams, who didn’t start their qualification campaign that well.

The Albiceleste will still be without their talisman, Lionel Messi, but that doesn’t give much relieve for Selecao head coach, Dunga.

Speaking in a recent news conference, the tactician said that even without Messi, Argentina remain a threat as Gerardo Martino have many top quality players on their squad.

Furthermore, Dunga stated that playing at home will surely give more advantage for Argentina instead of Brazil, so even if the Barcelona star is out, it won’t be an easy task for Selecao.

Meanwhile, Martino himself admitted that Messi’s absence obviously has an effect for his team as the Barcelona star is the world’s best player.
