Argentina on the brink of crashing out.
Another day, another pitiful performance. Lionel Scaloni's Argentina were saved by Lionel Messi and lucky to take a draw on Wednesday against Paraguay, demonstrating once and for all that the rookie coach is criminally out of his depth at what supposedly is one of the world's elite international teams.
Not since Diego Maradona has the Albiceleste had on the bench a man so tactically inept and seemingly out of control when it comes to managing a squad of players; and thanks to that incompetence they now find themselves on the verge of an historic first-round Copa America elimination in Brazil.
Scaloni was of course a stop-gap solution at the helm. Forced into a corner after the 2018 World Cup by the breakdown in order under Jorge Sampaoli, the Argentine FA had no choice but to send the Copa America winner with Chile packing and look for a replacement.
