Shortly after winning the FA Cup with Chelsea, goalkeeper Willy CABALERRO spoke to TyC Sports (via Spanish news agency, EFE) about Lionel Messi and also his wish with the national team.
“MESSI IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE AIR THAT WE BREATHe, NOT JUST A PLAYER BUT ALSO AS CAPTAIN AND A SYMBOL OF THE ARGENTINE NATIONAL TEAM.”
Willy has reiterated his desire to be part of Jorge SAMPAOLI’s squad for Russia that will be announced tomorrow.
“MY DREAM IS TO BE PART OF THE TEAM, IT IS MY WISH BUT WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL AND WAIT FOR SAMPAOLI’S LIST.”
And if he makes it into the final 23 of SAMPAOLI’s list, Willy has made it clear that he will fight for the No.1 spot.
“ONE ALWAYS WANTS TO PLAY AND CONTRIBUTE, THAT’S THE FIRST THING. I WANT TO SHOW EVERYTHING AND TRY TO HELP THE TEAM. BUT YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD FOR IT AND PROVE YOURSELF. I KNOW I CAN CONTRIBUTE BECAUSE OF MY EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE PLAYING IN DIFFERENT LEAGUES.”
