Argentina coach Scaloni: “Pavon is a player we are following”


Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni spoke about Cristian Pavon and his chances of being with the national team.

Cristian Pavon is no stranger to the Argentina team. He was part of the 2018 World Cup squad and even started a knockout game. However, since then, he has been in and out of the team.

Currently at LA Galaxy, Pavon is managed by Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who was his previous coach at Boca Juniors. Scaloni, who was also part of the 2018 World Cup coaching staff, is also familiar with Pavon.

Speaking to the media at a press conference before Argentina’s match vs. Chile, here’s what he had to say:

“We are following Pavon and hopefully we can have him in the future. He is a player we are following, he’s very interesting and has chatacteristics we don’t have. I wish him the best and hopefully he can be with us in the future.”

“The coach he has now knows him and could bring out his strengths to make him grow. He knows very well what he can give.”


  1. Will all due respect, many of you don’t know basic football and most don’t know football tactics .
    This is a friendly match. So what if 5 people remain from last match. So what if he has tried 50 people.
    He is trying to conjure a formula that our previous coaches failed to develop.
    Also, our previous coaches were all top level experienced coaches…

    On a positive note, I like pavon alot. I am sure he will be playing in next Copa even if he remains in MLS with low competition. He has a mind and confidence for the game that our players in the premier league do not have
