Julian Montoya is hoping for a positive end to the season for Argentina

France v Argentina: What’s been said?

Argentina captain Julian Montoya said: “A good end to the season would be to have good results and it would be a good way to close the year, reflecting everything we train, everything we say to ourselves and everything we do both on and off the pitch.

“That it is reflected in each of the games: to become strong in our fixed formations, a good defence, be demanding among ourselves to get the best of each one and, as I always say, put the Los Pumas shirt where it has to be, as high as we can.”
