Argentina won last night's friendly 2-1.
âArgentina have a lot of quality and great players who werenât even here like Leo Messi,â said Marchisio.
âAt times in the first and second half we couldâve put them under a lot more pressure if we had put more grit into it.
âYou could see in the opening stages we werenât in the right position and Argentina were able to pass back to their goalkeeper fairly easily. The goal woke us up and from that point we pressured them higher in midfield to create some important opportunities.
âUnfortunately we kept getting caught out on the counter-attack. We know that we have to improve and have a year to work on that.
âWe have also learned that physical fitness is key in those summer tournaments, so you have to be in the right shape at the right time.
âI had a good chance to score and knew I was too close to hit it hard, so I tried to scuff it in, but it went across the face of goal.â
