Walter KANNEMANN has been excellent for Brazilian club Gremio lately and has finally received a call-up to the Argentina National Team.
Now 27, the former San Lorenzo and Atlas man has been included in interim Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI’s list for next month’s matches against Guatemala and Colombia. Speaking with Sportia, here’s what he had to say:
“I am happy for having this opportunity. I hope to be as good as possible for it. I never really thought about if this should have happened before. If it didn’t happen, I would have been another fan of the Argentina National Team.
“I try to be my bst, to contribute what I can and to help out my team mates. I’ve always played as a center back in Brazil but if I have to play as a full back, I have no problem.”
KANNEMANN won the Copa Libertadores twice, the first time in 2014 with San Lorenzo and the second coming in 2017 with Gremio.
