The captain of the Argentina national team , Lionel Messi , will face another challenge that is no less difficult when he leads his team-mates against Australia in the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup .
It’s not impossible, Lionel Messi and his friends will be stunned by the compact-defense game demonstrated by Australia to be able to create a surprise in Group D of the 2022 World Cup.
This is because a dense defense strategy combined with a quick counter-attack scheme has proven to be able to bring a number of teams that were initially underdogs to be a surprise at the 2022 World Cup.
Some of them are Japan, Morocco, and Australia. The teams that were initially only considered as cheerleaders at this event actually appeared astonishing to qualify for the top 16 phase.
Of course, Argentina must remain vigilant. The reason is, Australia, which had fallen in the first match against France with a score of 1-4, proved able to rise in the remaining two matches. They succeeded in overthrowing Tunisia and Denmark with an identical score, namely 1-0.
The Persela Lamongan legend who is currently working with PSKC Cimahi, Taufik Kasrun, believes that Australia will continue to maintain the style of play that was previously exhibited in the group stage phase.
According to Taufik, the first defeat by France was inseparable from the stage fright that infects the participating clubs every time they face their first match. Events like the 2022 World Cup are indeed not infrequently difficult for participants because they still have to grope around.
“In the first match against France, maybe there is a nervous factor that Australia has not been able to anticipate. There was a mental burden that ultimately made them lose a lot,” said Taufik when contacted by Bola.com , Friday (2/12/2022).
“After the second match, Australia was able to play more calmly, relaxed and was able to control everything. In the end, we were able to win against Tunisia and Denmark in a double match,” he continued.
Taufik said, Australia’s important key to dampen the Argentinian attack line, including one of them Lionel Messi, was to maintain his playing style in the group phase.
Because, if you only focus on La Pulga, the Albiceleste still have many players who are just as dangerous. In fact, from midfield, there are several figures who can break the deadlock.
“If you look at Australia, they don’t have star players. But they want to work hard. Coordination in implementing meeting defense is quite good. The counterattack is also good,” he said.
“Australia doesn’t have to stick close to Messi because all of Argentina’s attacking lines are dangerous. If you only mark Messi, Argentine players from the second-line can appear and be dangerous,” he added.
According to the captain of the U-19 Indonesia national team in the 2007 era, Messi’s role had indeed shifted. If when he was young he was a goal-hungry predator, now his job is to turn to being a leader.
Indeed, so far he has been able to score two goals for Argentina at the 2022 World Cup. However, Taufik believes that the former Barcelona player has more of a role as a leader and mentor in Argentina.
“Lionel Messi is more or less still one of Argentina’s key players. However, if you look at his contribution in the two matches, it is still not that obvious,” he said.
“Messi’s role is as a mentor and leader. Besides Otamendi, Messi is one of the senior players. Because his flying hours are the highest in the Argentina national team. His function is to guide young players, because he is the leader.
In addition to maintaining a playing style with tight defense and relying on counterattacks, the Socceroos must also have extraordinary fighting power to paralyze Argentina.
Taufik said, this aspect will be the difference. If they are able to use all of their abilities and appear crazy, the team from the Kangaroo Country has great potential to force Argentina to return home sooner.
“I think Australia should emulate Japan’s fighting spirit. They are annoying, they work hard, they have extraordinary fighting power, where they chase the ball. If Australia demonstrates that style, I think there is a chance to turn things around,” he concluded.
