All the teams that are going to participate in the next edition of the FIFA World Cup, which will take place from November 20 to December 18 in Qatar, start finalize details to move to the organizing country. And not only must they carry all the elements and clothing necessary for training and matches, their luggage is also made up of food, medicines and other elements necessary for the stay.
In the case of the Argentine National Team, who will stay at the University of Qatar, it is normal that in each competition of this nature there is a special preparation so that the players managed by Lionel Scaloni and his coaching staff have absolute comfort to perform at their best in the competition.

In the image published through Instagram stories, it is seen that the yerba mate chosen by the Argentine soccer players is from the Canarias brand, which is marketed mainly in Uruguay but is of Brazilian origin. Specifically, players choose a variety called “Serena”, which is made up of other natural herbs such as Lemon Balm, Mburucuyá, Mint and Linden.
On the other hand, another of their weaknesses is chewy candies. Along with the packages of yerba mate there are several bags of Palitos de la selva, one of the most popular sweets in Argentina that is spread in other neighboring countries. It is a custom that Lionel Scaloni himself spoke about and said that he has his own preference: the strawberry Sugus .
“We are not to ask for anything, but when we get to the locker room there is a bag of sweets. There is everything, assorted, I eat the red Sugus, but I eat 40 before starting the game. The rest are grabbing, I assure you that there are few left of that bag before the game begins. It's there on top of the table and it's like you have to eat them”, commented the DT in dialogue with the program 'Vuelta y Media' of Urbana Play.

ScaloniHe also explained that sweets help players during matches. Candy has a lot of sugar and is quickly converted into energy. Some athletes choose to consume candy to keep their glucose at the right levels. “There are a lot of jellies, a bag of sweet things, they need it at halftime to put it in their bodies”, added the Argentine coach.
