Sergio Aguero scores, Emi Buendia two assists in Norwich City win

6

Sergio Aguero scored for Manchester City while Emi Buendia had two assists as Norwich won 3-2 against the league champions.

Norwich City were awarded a corner kick which was taken by Emi Buendia. The 22 year old Argentine’s cross found the head of McLean who scored the first of the game.

They would go on to double their lead and just as it looked like they would go into half time with a two goal advantage, Sergio Aguero pulls one back for City. A cross sent in found Aguero and his header made it 2-1 going into the break.

Nicolas Otamendi had a horror show on the third goal for Norwich. Buendia would easily steal the ball off him and pass it to Pukki for the third.

  1. I remember once I was watching a match for Barcelona, it was back in 2015, and I saw this Argentinian kid who was playing as a rightback for Getafe and he was impressive.

    Despite the score sheet that day, for a 19 yrs old kid, Emi Buendia did give Neymar a hard time that match.

  2. Does anyone think Scaloni should consider calling him up soon??
    I’ve followed this guy since last year he’s actually pretty impressive.
    My worry is he would consider playing for Spain if not called up by Argentina eventually, considering he’s already played for Spain’s U16 I believe ??
    What are your thoughts, considering he’s called up tons of players already, do you think Emi has what it takes??

    • he played a youth world cup for us as well so i’m assuming he’d answer a call.

      more importantly, with the way scaloni is setting this team up the wide midfielders are going to be very important since we play with no natural wingers. right now we i think are working with DePaul, Acuña, pereyra, and macallister in those roles, with lanzini (haven’t seen enough) and possibly zaracho (haven’t seen anything) also on the outside of this search. only depaul is close to certain in the XI for me. some are ok with acuna in this role, personally i am not. i view him too similar to depaul as a role player and i think we miss too much creativity with both of them. one midfield role player like rodrigo is enough on the XI in my book otherwise its too stale.

      What i am leading to is that the requirement is still there for someone like buendia and/or lamela. with palacios, macallister, locelso out for october there will be room and scaloni can definitely expand his wide midfield search.
