Coaches Angle and Strategy Analysis in Argentina vs Uruguay Match Preview

Gerardo Martino: He needs to rethink and certainly adopts a new strategy to give a “WIN” to Argentina supporters. Already, some controversies have started flying around and Martino needs to do something different. According to some match analysts, his mistake was not implementing Tevez, the man, who has changed the Juventus totally. Although, Martino gave Tevez a chance, but that was not too much.

Oscar Tabarez: Currently, Tabarez has improved his Copa America 2015 squad a lot. This is always very difficult to play such a big tournament without a perfect finisher like Suarez. Nevertheless, Tabarez’s strategy of using Cavani is working well. The 4-4-2 formation seemed perfect for Uruguay since Cavani, Rodriguez etc. are playing great.

Argentina vs Uruguay Match’s Key Players


Messi: This left-footed living football legend is always a nightmare of opponent teams’ defenders and goalkeepers. After a bad ending in World Cup 2014, now he has become even more lethal player in Copa America 2015.

Aguero: This Manchester City’s striker has been playing well throughout the entire EPL and now is even thirstier to win CA15 for his country. In the previous match, he was awesome. However, Martino needs to implement this player carefully.


Cavani: This PSG star was a ray of hope for his club. However, in the opening match of Uruguay, Cavani has played brilliantly. His one-to-one combination with Rolan made difficulties in the previous match. His counter attack was just awesome.

Rolan: This 22 years old Uruguayan striker has played well alongside Cavani. He has become one of the best hidden talents in Copa America 2015. However, Tabarez should make a different plan to use this striker along with Cavani and Rodriguez.
