Heinze: Stop Brazil Playing

Gabriel Heinze has insisted that the way for Argentina to overcome Brazil is to ensure they can’t get into their stride.

“A victory depends on what we do. We can’t let them think so that we don’t have more problems. This confrontation is between a bunch of players who have been playing together for a long time [Brazil] and a team [Argentina] who have very high hopes,” said Heinze.

“The idea is to attack them but with organisation. Without going crazy or without despair, because they have fast players to explode on the counterattack. Not being careful would be a sin,” he concluded.

Heinze also commented about the decision to switch the match from the Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires to the Gigante de Arroyito stadium in Rosario.

“I liked the idea because the national team belongs to the whole country, not only to one city. To say that we have changed from venue to win is false and only a lie. The objective is for the majority of the Argentines to be happy, whether they live in Buenos Aires or Rio Negro.”
