Federico FAZIO has stated that he could still end up playing for the Italian National Team.
AS Roma defender FAZIO has commented about his lack of call-ups to the Argentina National Team, him wanting to play with this group of players and more. Speaking to “Rivista Undici” in Italy, here’s what he had to say:
Federico FAZIO’s Italy comments:
“I don’t like the fact that I haven’t gotten the opportunity to show my worth to Argentina. There’s a lot of matches, World Cup Qualifiers, friendly matches, World Cups… Maybe they prefered to count on the group of players they have… It’s always great to get some recognition for the hard work you’re doing. Nevertheless, the most important thing is to always look to the future. About the National Team, who knows… I could still play for Italy.”
The Buenoes Aires native has been capped three times for Argentina, twice under Sergio BATISTA and once under Gerardo “Tata” MARTINO. At youth level, FAZIO was part of the 2007 U20 World Cup winning team, the last Argentinian team to win that tournament. He was also part of the legendary 2008 Olympic team which won gold in Beijing, playing alongside Lionel MESSI, Juan RIQUELME, Javier MASCHERANO and others.
