Mateo MUSACCHIO has stated that while he could play for Italy, he wants to play for Argentina.
Mateo MUSACCHIO has come out and said that he wants to play for Argentina. Here's what he had to say:
"I know I could be called up for Italy because I have the citizenship but I am Argentinian and want to play for Argentina. I need to play incredibly well for Villarreal to have this honour. I’m going to keep playing like this and we’ll see where it takes me."
Musacchio has played for Argentina before in 2011 under Sergio BATISTA. But it was Argentina's B team against Nigeria and Poland. But because those were friendly matches, they do not tie him to Argentina. Fans at the Barcelona and Villarreal game on Saturday held up a flag which said "SABELLA, MUSACCHIO is Argentinian."
