Juan ITURBE decides to play for Paraguay


Juan Manuel ITURBE will represent the Paraguayan National Team.

Former player for the U20 Argentina team, Juan Manuel ITURBE will play for Paraguay and not Argentina. ITURBE represented Argentina at the U20 level and played a friendly match with Paraguay in 2009 (then coach Tata MARTINO called him up and ITURBE played a few minutes). However, since it was a friendly match and not an official match, ITURBE was still eligible to play for Argentina and had since stated that he wants to play for Argentina and not Paraguay.

However, news is now breaking that ITURBE will represent Paraguay next month in the World Cup Qualifiers when they play Ecuador and Brazil, making him an official player for the Paraguayan National Team.
