    21 years old Thomas Rodriguez, which is one of our new players in Europe (from Banfield to Genoa), is IMO pure talent. He is Argentine/Chilean nationality and Chile coach, Pizzi, has already initiated contacts with him to call up sooner or later. I think Argentina should not to cede him for Chileans and he is worth to fight for if hesitant.
