To start, I ask you to forgive me as I indulge in a personal story. Trust me, there is a point to all this.
I traveled to Los Angeles in September 2018 to cover Argentina for their first post-World Cup match against Guatemela. Argentina won the match 3-0 – each of the three scored by someone for whom it was their first international goal.
After the match we were escorted to the media area where a makeshift tent was set up to house the press conferences for both teams. The area was packed with close to 100 journalists, many of whom I recognized from watching ESPN, TyC Sports, and Fox Deportes. Knowing that this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity, I decided that I would be brave and ask Scaloni a question.
