Conmebol Qualifiers: Argentina wins in Chile with Di Maria and Lautaro’s goals

After the Brazil vs Ecuador game ended, it was time for Argentina to face Chile in a gruesome fight for the last two tickets to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

He is no longer contagious but he still tests positive in the PCR, which means he isn't eligible to play until he tests negative. Coach Lionel Scaloni was also positive and didn't even make the trip to Chile for this match.
