Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni used a back three during training, ahead of the Albiceleste’s World Cup final against France.
Scaloni has used a back three in the tournament, with Lisandro Martinez joining Nicolas Otamendi and Cristian Romero at the back. But usually, he has used a back four, with Otamendi and Romero starting at the back. The back three was used against the Netherlands to match the Dutch side’s formation.
When operating in a back three, Romero, Otamendi and Martinez were the three centre-backs, with Marcos Acuna and Nahuel Molina being the wing-backs on the left and right.
