Juan FOYTH has joined the Argentina national team for the first time, after having to be left out of last month’s squad due to injury.
The former Estudiantes de la Plata man is finding it difficult to get minutes at his current club Tottenham, but Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI doesn’t appear to have a problem having him in the team. Following a training session in Saudi Arabia, FOYTH spoke to the media about the team’s upcoming matches against Iraq and Brazil. Here’s what he had to say:
About the match against Iraq:
“We know that Iraq is a strong team and wearing this shirt, you can’t ever relax because when you relax, the worst thing happens.”
FOYTH also commented on the match against Brazil:
“It’s not a friendly. It’s one of the most important matches in the world and we will do our best to make the national team look good.”
