Ángel Correa and Matheus Cunha have one goal in mind: be at the World Cup in Qatar. The two forwards meet concentrated with Argentina and Brazil respectively and despite the enormous competition they have to deal with, They have been cited by Scaloni and Tite without taking into account their little participation in the start of the Atleti championship.
The World Cup was a great attraction for the squad, and if Lodi asked to leave to be able to re-enter the plans of his coachsomething that has happened in this list, Cunha and Correa opted to continue and compete for the minutes. Until now, Morata and João Félix have been the offensive couple chosen by Cholo in six of the eight games played. In the derby, the coach sat the man from Madrid to give entrance to a Griezmann who had always before been limited to the last half hour of the match. Meanwhile, Correa and Cunha have had to wait for their opportunities in the last minutes of the matches. In the case of the ’10′, he started against Celta and opened the scoring showing that he is always prepared.
some physical problems Cunha was left out against Porto and Real Sociedad, but beyond those casualties, his record for minutes of the course is the half hour he had in the derby. Altogether, Correa and Cunha are the players on the squad who have played the fewest minutes (161′ and 93′ respectively), beyond a Reguilón who has been injured since his arrival. Even Savic, out since the second day, or Grbic, substitute goalkeeper, have had a greater participation than the two forwards. And in their national teams, the competition above tightens in search of a hole. Being in this last call is a great sign for both.
Strap was proclaimed America’s Cup champion and Scaloni has not changed excessively, a block has been giving a lot of joy. Players like Gio Simeone have been left out of the last appointment prior to the World Cup despite scoring goals with Napoli. Scaloni has taken 29 footballers to face Honduras and Jamaica, so you will have to discard. In attack, he has Messi, Lautaro, Di María, Dybala, Joaquín Correa, Julián Álvarez, Nicolás González and Thiago Almada, in addition to Angel Correa. And Brazil also boasts of being ahead with Neymar, Vinicius, Raphinha, Rodrygo, Antony, Richarlison, Firmino, Pedro and Cunha himselfall this despite not citing Gabriel Jesús.
“The coaches of the national teams I don’t think they value going to the national team for the last five games, there will be some case that is on edge, but the coaches have one turning around and the other 22 fixed”, Simeone explained after leaving Lodi. And Correa and Cunha do not want to be that player who is on edge until the last minute. For both there are two international matches and 12 matches with Atlético before the break for the World Cup. Morata has lost steam, João Félix is not adding up as expected and Griezmann is compatible with two other strikers. Therefore, the mentality of Correa and Cunha is clear and involves gritting their teeth in search of becoming strong in Atlético, gaining prominence and becoming strong in two teams that are candidates for everything. If Koke, Morata, Llorente, Witsel, Carrasco, João Félix, Griezmann, Giménez, Nahuel Molina and De Paul have their World Cup presence on trackCorrea, Cunha and Lemar confront their private Tourmalet in search of a ticket.
