Argentina must adjust mentally to altitude – Ponzio

Leonardo Ponzio says that Argentina must adjust mentally to deal with the extreme altitude of Bolivia’s capital La Paz in their upcoming World Cup qualifier.

Argentina face the Bolivians away from home on Tuesday, but the last time these sides met in the Bolivian capital the Argentines were beaten 6-1.

“The altitude is an abnormal factor we’re not accustomed to. You have to adjust your mind to it,” midfielder Leonardo Ponzio told Telam.

“We must make the most of the greater skills of our forwards … who impose a different rhythm to what you see normally.”
