Alejandro GOMEZ, currently with Atalanta in Italy has stated that the the National Team for him seems very strange.
“Papu” GOMEZ has been gaining popularity in the media for his form in Italy but has still not played for the National Team. Here’s what he had to say about the matter:
“It’s all very strange. You could get called-up a thousand times to the National Team but if you don’t play, it’s not any good. There are great Argentine players in Italy who are not called-up.”
Regarding Mauro ICARDI not getting called to the team:
“The only reason that makes me think that ICARDI is not part of the National Team are for reasons beyond football. Although they have to start thinking about the future.”
“They wanted me on the Italian National Team but it wasn’t possible because I played at the U20 World Cup in Canada with Argentina. It brings me great pride that they did notice me.”
