The Argentina Olympic Team held a press conference today to talk about the upcoming tournament.
Three people from the team took part in it. Coach Julio OLARTICOECHEA, team captain Victor CUESTA and starting goalkeeper Geronimo RULLI. Here’s what they had to say:
“The coaching staff have got a couple of game plans put together. There should be no excuses when it comes real play. I more or less have an idea. These friendly matches will help us pick our starting 11. In our first match, we will face Portugal which is a tough rivals but we have our strengths too. We must be strong when facing adversity. Today PUMPIDO, our goalie from 1986 came to visit us. I see many similarity here. The door is open for MARADONA if he wants to come to Rio, just like it is to anyone who wants to come support us.”
“The responsibility of wearing the captain’s armband is something beautiful. I’m very proud to be able to do it with Argentina.”
“I’ve done everything possible to be here. It’s a great tournament. And I always dreamed of playing with Argentina.”
