Messi and Argentina delay U2 concert

A positive result is required to secure at least a play-off spot, with an automatic passage to the global gathering still up for grabs.With the football-loving public in Argentina set to be engrossed by goings on at Estadio Olimpico Atahualpa, the decision has been taken to delay any possible distractions.That includes a visit from Irish band U2, who are in South America as part of their The Joshua Tree Tour.Bono and The Edge were due to take to the stage at Estadio Unico de La Plata at 9pm local time, but that would have meant performing while Argentina’s make-or-break contest is taking place.As a result, the decision has been taken to keep them waiting until 10.20pm, once the final whistle blows in Ecuador.Those in attendance at the venue will get to see some live music prior to the football taking place, with former Oasis star Noel Gallagher due to play at 7pm.Once his set has finished, four giants screens will turn their attention to sporting matters.”I proposed that after Noel Gallagher, who leaves at 7, we will televise the game of Argentina and then play U2,” Daniel Grinbank, the organiser of the event, told La Nacion.“We have put up four screens, one in each corner, and that’s it.”While Argentina are taking on Ecuador, elsewhere in the final round of CONMEBOL fixtures Brazil will be facing Chile, Paraguay playing Venezuela, Peru taking on Colombia and Uruguay hosting Bolivia. HOW ARGENTINA & MESSI CAN STILL QUALIFYHD Lionel Messi ArgentinaAutomatic qualificationThe best-case scenario for Argentina. is that they win their game against Ecuador and Colombia draw with Peru. That pair of results would see them finish in the automatic qualification spots regardless of results elsewhere.If Colombia beat Peru and Chile fail to beat Brazil in Sao Paulo, an Argentina win would see them finish in the top four and thus they would qualify for the World Cup.Inter-confederation play-offHowever, if both Colombia and Chile win, even if Argentina won, they would likely finish in the play-off spot due to the fact that their goal-difference and goals scored pales in comparison to the other teams.If Colombia beat Peru and Argentina draw with Ecuador, Jorge Sampaoli’s side could qualify for the inter-confederation play-off, but that would depend on seventh-place Paraguay either drawing or losing at home to Venezuela.If Peru manage to beat Colombia in Lima (which would avenge their 2-0 loss in Barranquilla), Argentina will need to win in Quito in order to ensure they qualify for the play-off. A draw against Ecuador in that scenario would leave the Albiceleste at the mercy of other results and their current complexion in terms of goal difference, as well as goals scored is relatively unhealthy.last_img read more
