Argentina is ready to beat Chile, affirms Mascherano

Argentina is ready to beat Chile, affirms Mascherano

Argentine Javier Mascherano is confident of a debut win against defending champions Chile in the opening of Group D of the Copa America Centenario.

"I know that we can get a win," he said in remarks published Monday in the sports daily Olé.

The question is whether his teammate at FC Barcelona, ​​Lionel Messi, will be in the starting lineup after suffering bruised ribs during a friendly against Honduras (1-0) ten days ago.

"He will play when he is well, but if he doesn't play it will be because he can't and is in a lot of pain. It is very difficult to get Leo out of a game, he can endure a lot of pain," said Mascherano.

The footballer, who turns 32 on Wednesday and will play his fifth Copa America with Argentina, admits the weight of 23 years without titles.
