The Argentine National Team He had an auspicious debut in the United States to defend the title, but after the victory an unexpected controversy arose. Canada coach Jesse Marsch He asked that Lionel Scaloni’s team be sanctioned in the 2024 Copa América for an unusual reason which was applied in the past.

The fact is that, minutes after the match ended 2-0 in favor of the “Albiceleste”, March demanded at a press conference: “Argentina should be fined. Did they understand? Fined. Write that down. How long did it take them to leave? 20, 30 minutes? I don’t know but it was a long time”.

In the same sense, the coach of the North American country, who had a brief stint at Leeds in England, continued: “I would like the referees to control that situation. If we had taken five minutes too long, they would have fined us. There would have been a big problem. We will see what they do with Argentina…”.

Although the world champion team came out a few minutes later than their rivals in the second half, the match referee did not draw the attention of the Argentine team and started the match without any major problems.

Far from staying with that, the American coach delved into the topic, visibly upset. “While they were in the locker room they were watching the video and analyzing how to play us,” he added, referring to Scaloni’s position.

And he concluded: “If we had known [que eso iba a pasar]we could also have taken advantage of those extra 10 minutes and prepared other things. “They should be fined for leaving 20 minutes late for the second half.”
