Lautaro; Aguero come to rescue but Argentina still disappointing at Copa America
It was not convincing, nor fluid, nor particularly attractive to watch. But it was a win nonetheless, and that more than anything else was what Argentina needed to keep their Copa America hopes alive.
A stuttering 2-0 victory over Qatar avoided the humiliation of a first-round exit in Brazil, extending the Albiceleste’s interests in the competition for at least four more days.
Whether their tournament will go on any further from this point will depend on the team showing a marked improvement from the quarter-final onwards, a condition that right now looks far from being fulfilled.
