England, Italy, Spain and France saw goals scored by Argentinian players as Nicolas OTAMENDI, Gio SIMEONE, Jonathan CALLERI and Emiliano SALA all scored.
In addition to Lionel MESSI, Mauro ICARDI and Gonzalo HIGUAIN all scoring, there were four more from the sky blue and white who scored. Beginning in England, Nicolas OTAMENDI scored for Manchester City in their 2-1 win against West Ham. With Pablo ZABALETA and Manuel LANZINI both playing for the Hammers, it was Sergio AGUERO and Nicolas OTAMENDI starting for the Citizens. West Ham took the lead and it was an Argentinian who scored but it wasn’t the number 10. OTAMENDI netted his fourth goal of the season in all competitions. According to WhoScored, that’s double what he managed across his two previous seasons for City.
If OTAMENDI scored goal number four of the season, Gio SIMEONE added goal number five to his personal tally as Fiorentina picked-up a 3-0 win against Sassuolo in Serie A. SIMEONE scored a header after being left alone in the area.
Former West Ham man Jonathan CALLERI put one passed the goalkeeper for Las Palmas in a 1-1 draw against Real Betis.
In France, just like Gio SIMEONE, Emiliano SALA scored goal number five of the season as FC Nantes drew 1-1 against AS Saint-Etienne.
