Eduardo SALVIO will be taking part in his first FIFA World Cup tournament for Argentina and in an interview with TyC Sports, discussed two quick topics.
Coming up through the youth teams, SALVIO, now 27 years old and at Benfica, is expected to play a different role than he is accustomed to. In Argentina’s 4-0 win against Haiti, he was deployed on right side, with a lot of defensive responsibilities. Yet when attacking, he states that MESSI is the first option:
“Our first option has to be MESSI but we also know that we have quality players; AGÜERO, HIGUAÍN or DI MARÍA will make some runs which you can take advantage of as well.”
When asked about the different setups we can see from the coach, SALVIO doesn’t seem to have a problem with them:
“If I play, it doesn’t matter if it’s a line of four or a line of three.”
Having represented Argentina at U17 as well as at U20 level, this will be Eduardo SALVIO’s first tournament with the senior team.
