LA PAZ, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- The rarefied air of La Paz will provide Bolivia with a clear advantage over Argentina when the teams meet in their 2022 World Cup qualifier here on Tuesday, Albiceleste manager Lionel Scaloni said on Sunday.
"All I can do is thank them for the confidence they showed in me," said the forward, who came out from the Barcelona youth system, but plays in the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
"He has started treatment and physiotherapy. The next 24 hours will be important to see how his recovery will be. We'll evaluate him again before training [on Thursday] and we'll have a better idea then."
The American improved her 2020 record in majors to a spectacular 16-1 after the win, during which she avoided the need for a deciding set and saved 10 of 12 breakpoints to seal the victory.
The inexperienced coach had to compensate that by squeezing every minute.
"Leo continues to be a forward, whether that be as a No. 9 or second striker," Scaloni said. "But he is a forward and we always try to have three options up front. I don't think his position on the pitch has changed [at Barcelona]. In the end he is always a forward or an attacking player."
