Walter Benitez, Juan Musso, Gero Rulli, Guido Herrera on Argentina team radar

Walter Benitez, Juan Musso, Geronimo Rulli and Guido Herrera are on Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni’s radar.

Per a report by TyC Sports, Scaloni is looking at those four goalkeepers for the October friendly games. Esteban Andrada and Franco Armani, along with the rest of the Boca Juniors and River Plate players, will not be called-up for the Argentina squad in October due to the Copa Libertadores clash.

Walter Benitez has been in great form for Nice as the 26 year old will look to receive his first senior call. Juan Musso, still only 25, was part of the 2019 Copa America squad as he replaced Boca Juniors goalkeeper Esteban Andrada who had suffered an injury.

Geronimo Rulli has been in and out of the Argentina national team but now at new club Montpellier, the 27 year old will look to try and solidify a spot in the team. Guido Herrera of Talleres is also a new name being thrown around with 27 year old having never represented Argentina at any level. 

Agustin Marchesin will likely be called to the team as well. He was part of the Argentina setup for the month of September and was named the best goalkeeper of the Portuguese league for the month of August.

  1. Tagliafico has played about 20 or something game for Argentina without a goal or assist even against shitty team in friendlies.But Rojo has scored as well as assisted for NT even in few chances.I think he is gonna start for Man United vs Aston villa.Tagliafico is good but match vs Lille his cross was average there is no curling in the cross.Header are always a luck factor in corner(mostly)

  2. Tagliafico is Best LB this season so far in Europe. 4 goals and 3 assist in 10 app.
    3 headed goals came from set-piece.
    And here people actually want rojo to start over him…

    • I don’t know if there are really haters, how could someone hate TAGI ? this guy is becoming good at what he does, not average, but above average.
      but anyone opposed to TAGI being our main LB should come up with a better player at that position. IMO it is clear there are not any who can perform better than TAGI at this point of time. not come up with a name that ‘maybe’ will be better, but better than him, NOW.

  3. Marchesin & Musso must be our two main keepers! Third place may b given to Andrada/Rulli or anybody. Buendia should be included.
    Scaloni must fix his core team now & reduce his tendency of experiment.
    I think we have a better team, better options now to compete with anybody, just need time!
    Vamos!

  4. Martinez again with an excellent pass. As everyday passes the more and more I want to see him at #5… Paredes spot.

    Palacios – Martinez – De Paul

    To El Mongols point, paredes best at “press resistance” so excluding him could with but tactics will change.

    • Paredes place is rock solid, more creative passer than Martinez, our best and first of al most precise passer without Messi. Martinez cant contribute his defense splitting passes, and he is slower in thinking before passes. Paredes gives one touch passes regularly (even long balls, some God level through ball attempts too).

      • You’re right, he does pass precise but i’m not seeing too many “defense splitting” passes. im worried about defensive duties too though….. Parede can get caught and he doesn’t seem that have that killer defensive instinct. We may also lose a bit of creativity from other more attacking CMs since they have greater defensive burden to compensate for Paredes.

  5. Based on current form and lack of a few key River/Boca players, a lineup like this might work against Germany and Brazil?

    ……………………………..Icardi………………………………….
    ……Lanzini……………….Lamela…………………Buendia……
    ……………Li. Martinez…………….De Paul…………………….
    Tagliafico………Kannemann……Ottamendi………….(?)…….
    …………………………….Marchesin……………………………

    Who would be best as a right back? Saravia? Bustos? Ansanldi? Foyth?

      • He is right man in right place (even if not that efficient in attack like in Ajax). Solid defending is base I expect from him in NT. He is solid defender there. Maybe will develope also on attacking moments.

      • Csabalala wtf is wrong with you. How is he not doing well for us. He is our most versatile player right now and practically our only real connection between midfield and defense.
