Mauro ICARDI has finally scored his first goal for Argentina and has given his thoughts on the team.
Following Argentina’s 2-0 win against Mexico, the Inter striker gave his opinion on the team, the past and Lionel MESSI. Here’s what he had to say:
“In this new step, we feel very comfortable, very good. With everyone in the coaching staff. Leo (SCALONI) has formed something very beautiful. I’ve lived the Argentina national team before and there wasn’t as much companionship, as much friendship.
“When I would come here, I didn’t feel what I felt today. Now, there are many young people and before there was a lot of experience. Now, there’s a lot that start from the very bottom and it’s a plus that we have gotten to know each other in these six matches.”
ICARDI also spoke about the past generation which had reached three finals.
“Everyone wants the best for the Argentina national team. Representing our country is the most beautiful thing there is. Now, we are all young players looking to bring some joy to the Argentina team. Now, the pressure of our old team mates which made three finals is off our shoulders.”
And finally, ICARDI talked about Lionel MESSI.
“We wait for Leo, he is the best player in the world. Everyone wants a player like him. Hopefully in the next call-up he be here and at the Copa America.”
