Franco VAZQUEZ could still play for Argentina and might get that chance.
Despite having already represented Italy twice, VAZQUEZ (currently at Sevilla under coach SAMPAOLI) has come out with some surprising comments regarding the Argentina National Team. VAZQUEZ’s two matches came in international friendly’s against Portugal and England. Meaning he has not played an “official” match (a World Cup or European Qualifier or a tournament), therefore he would still be eligible to play for Argentina.
VAZQUEZ’s comments came after Edgardo BAUZA said this:
“If you can play in the national team, you will be taken into account.”
Speaking to Radio Continental, here’s what he had to say:
“I’m surprised. I was training and when I finished I grabbed my phone and had a lot of messages. I feel Argentine.”
“Another coach had closed the door on me, and now I open it.”
“For any player, to be in the selection of a country is always a goal. I am happy to have been named by the national team coach, but I cannot think beyond that because it isn’t known if I will be able. I must remain calm.”
