Paulo Dybala: Reason Not Played

Scaloni had explained his decision not to play Dybala, even though the player had recovered from injury. According to him, the decision was purely a tactical decision.

“He didn’t play because I haven’t found the right moment for him to go on the pitch,” admitted Scaloni before the quarter-final against the Netherlands.

“With a team that continues to grow, I really don’t have a chance to play him,” he continued as quoted from Metro.
