Franco CERVI of Benfica, “Pity” MARTINEZ of River Plate talk Argentina team


Franco CERVI and Gonzalo “Pity” MARTINEZ both spoke to the media about being with the Argentina National Team.

Two of many new comers in the Argentina National Team, Franco CERVI of Benfica and Gonzalo “Pity” MARTINEZ of River Plate both commented on the Argentina National Team. Speaking to the media, here’s what CERVI had to say:

“It’s a privilege but also a very big responsibility.”

Franco CERVI also spoke about interim Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI:

“We have to get to know him and listen to his ideas. You have to try and carry it out in the best way possible.”

Gonzalo “Pity” MARTINEZ had this to say:

“Now it depends on me to not take off this shirt, which is what I love the most.”

MARTINEZ on being used on the left side of the attack:

“It’s a position which I’m used to playing as well. The team has helped me a lot to feel comfortable.”


  1. Gonzalo “Pity” MARTINEZ:“Now it depends on me to not take off this shirt, which is what I love the most.”

    That’s what we r looking for, this is Argentina NT. You have to put on your best always. Glad that he is willing to play in any Midfield position. No Complaints. Good to hear that.

  2. It’s really hard to say which Right back is best in Superliga ATM. We have called up Bustos, Di Placido and Saravia but there are also names of Montiel, Abecasis, Jara, Jose Luis Gomez (still need to back after injury) and maybe first of all Leonardo Godoy from Talleres who not only in my opinion was best recently. Figured in team of the last weak. Generally best fullbacks have Godoy Cruz with RB Abecasis and LB Angileri consistent good form. A bit surprised LB Angileri is not called while we have 3 RB:

  3. Today team trained with 3 changes: Renzo Saravia, Alan Franco y Rodrigo Battaglia for Fabricio Bustos, Germán Pezzella y Leandro Paredes.

    Gerónimo Rulli; Saravia, Franco, Ramiro Funes Mori, Nicolás Tagliafico; Giovani Lo Celso, Battaglia, Exequiel Palacios; Cristian Pavón, Giovanni Simeone y Gonzalo Martínez.
