Geronimo RULLI had six saves and Ramiro FUNES MORI had one big blunder as Real Sociedad picked up a 2-1 win against Villarreal.
Two names back in the Argentina squad after missing out on the FIFA World Cup, Geronimo RULLI and Ramiro FUNES MORI both started (as well as Santiago CASERES who had an assist) both started for their respective clubs. It was the yellow submarines who opened the scoring with a Santiago CASERES assist and Gerard MORENO beat RULLI with a low shot.
Real Sociedad equalized before half time with a terrible back pass from Ramiro FUNES MORI as the ball fell to Willian JOSE who beat the goalkeeper to draw Sociedad level. Juanmi scored Sociedad’s second and the match winner with a shot from outside the area.
Should RULLI maintain this level of performance, there’s no reason why he can’t become Argentina’s undisputed starting goalkeeper. As for FUNES MORI, it wasn’t his best match but he has shown in the past with the Argentina National Team that he can be up to the task when asked upon.
