Copa America 2015: Argentina vs Jamaica match preview

Argentina in Copa America 2015 till date –

The team had a rough start with a 2-2 draw against Paraguay, even after having a two goals lead. The defence looked sloppy and the defenders looked clueless. In the second match Argentina won against another group favourite Uruguay, with a 1-0 result. The English Premier League top scorer stroke for the second time in Copa America 2015 to give his team important 3 points. But yet again the Argentine defence gave away a lot of chances to Cavani and co. which they failed to materialize. Having four points in the bag now the Argentina squad for Copa America 2015 is looking forward to another win.

Jamaica in Copa America 2015 till date –

Jamaica has lost both their Group league matches of Copa America 2015. Being an underdog the team offered respectable fight in the field. First a 1-0 loss against Uruguay and then again another one goal loss against Paraguay may not allow them to qualify for Copa America 2015 quarter final but the attitude of fighting to the tongue has earned them respect. The team will be playing for their pride today just to let the world be aware of the pocket size power bomb of football.

Argentina vs Jamaica Copa America 2015 match preview and strategy analysis –

Argentina’s strategy against Jamaica in Copa America 2015 –

Argentina has played both their matches with an absolute ball position over their opponents. Playing short passes all around and targeting the goal with match winners like Aguero, Messi, Di Maria, Pastore. The team doesn’t allow its opponent to have a constructive attack, rather keeps on distributing the ball all over the field and builds some situational movements within a fraction. Argentina may need to introduce Tevez today, as Aguero suffered a bit of injury in last match against Uruguay. Martino will also be looking to replace Messi, as soon as the win is confirmed. It will be interesting to see, what change the team undergoes with to solve their defensive problems.

Jamaica’s strategy against Argentina in Copa America 2015 –

The Jamaica team has always been looking for long-ball play. The team opts for attacks from flanks and shots from outside and inside of the box. The defenders try to offer long balls to the strikers who would love to reflect it on score sheet. There is not much to talk about Jamaica’a strategy in Copa America rather than the very well known and common fact of how they handle the most lethal player of the opposition. Jamaica would have to block him, not allowing cutting inside from the flank. In this manner they can opt for rough tackling and body playing, which the Messi doesn’t like. The Jamaican team needs to build counter attacks often making Masche and Pastore stuck at their own defence. Argentine defence needs to get challenged by Jamaica, in order to stop Argentine attacks to flow in.

Well we all are very aware of the list here. Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano  all are some pieces of diamond to have an eye on. In the crowd of genius, there remains one unsung hero who has been keeping the team’s sheet clean in many a match is Sergio Romero. The goalkeeper is one of the most effective goalies under the bar, and neutralizes a lot of counter attacks. Jamaica will face some challenge at Argentine last line defence no doubt.

Jamaica can no way opt for a single player to make a mark against Argentina. If Jamaica has to dazzle the football world, they would have to generate a superb team game, unleashing different warriors from different positions. That’s the only hope for them.
