The two-time world champions, runners-up three years ago, have been a mainstay in the showpiece tournament since missing the 1970 edition in Mexico, but three consecutive draws have left Argentina adrift of the play-off spot on goals scored.South American leaders Brazil, meanwhile, are already assured of a berth at next year’s World Cup and there are suggestions the Selecao — with nothing to play for against hopefuls Chile in Sao Paulo — could deliberately harm Argentina’s chances, but Tite insisted that is not the case.Tite comandou um trabalho de movimentação sem marcação nesta segunda.
