Real Sociedad goalkeeper Geronimo RULLI spoke to FIFA.com about the Olympics, being part of the Argentina National Team and more. After leaving RULLI out of the Argentina squad for the 2015 Copa America, Gerardo MARTINO had this to say about the goalkeeper:
"RULLI will probably be the national team keeper for the next ten years. Barring any strange happenings, that ought to be the case."
That seems to be the general feeling among Albiceleste fans regarding the goalkeeper position. As for RULLI, here’s what he had to say:
"I love sport and being at the Olympic Games or the World Cup is the pinnacle of what a footballer can aspire to. It must be an incredible atmosphere to play in and to share in with other sports. It would be a dream for me to be there and win a medal."
"There’s always reason to believe with the national team. There are great players who, despite being under 23, have already gone a long way in football. Argentina should always be favourites for any competition they’re playing in and I have no doubts it’ll be the same in Rio. However, if I want to be involved, I have to perform well for my club. Here’s hoping I can keep up what I’ve been doing in recent games and the call-up comes."
