A few hours after Argentina’s debut in Qatar 2022 against Saudi Arabia, new details of the intimacy of the Scaloneta. Not only asado, mate and the ever-present Scaloni red candies. Between training sessions, press conferences and video analysis, the off-field activity that entertains the Seleccion is not the playstation, but the Truco tournament, a popular Argentine card game similar to our trump card.

The tournament is made up of 16 teams of three members each. Each match is played until one of the two teams reaches 30 points. In the event of a tie, whoever earns the most points in the last round will have won the game. For the final victory, a prize of 3,600 dollars was established for the champion trio and 1,200 dollars for the runners-up. For this, all participants had to put in 100 dollars for registration.

The entire Seleccion delegation participates in the Truco World Cup. Not only the players, but also Scaloni’s staff and the president of the AFA, Claudio Chiqui Tapia. The only ones excluded are the former Fiorentina captain, German Pezzella and Sevilla full-back, Acuña. These are some of the 16 teams:

Scaloni, Samuel, Ayala
– Messi, Paredes, De Paul
– Rulli, Guido Rodríguez, Emiliano Martinez
– Dybala, Di María, Otamendi
– Correa, Almada, Papu Gomez
– Lisandro Martínez, Romero, Molina
– Fernández, Mac Allister, Álvarez
