Midfielder Guido Pizarro has been called up to the Argentina squad for his country’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
La Albiceleste plays Peru in Lima on 6th October, then welcome Paraguay to the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes on the 11th.
Pizarro has never played for his country before, so could be in line to make his debut.
Nahuel Also Included…
It’s certainly a well-deserved call-up. He’s been in great form this season and has been one of the main reasons that we’ve only conceded four goals in 11 league games so far.
He was given his break after Atletico Madrid midfielder Augusto Fernandez pulled out through injury (ESPN).
Nahuel Guzman is also in the squad but is unlikely to see game time. Man Utd’s Sergio Romero remains their first choice, despite not getting minutes at Old Trafford.
Argentina are currently third in the CONMEBOL qualifying group with 15 points from eight games.
