Argentine scorers in MLS roundup: Diego VALERI, Ignacio PIATTI and more score


A total of five Argentine players scored on the opening day of MLS.

Five goal scorers sums up the opening day of Argentine players in Major League Soccer. Beginning in Columbus, Gaston SAURO scored his first career club goal as the Crew drew 1-1 against New York Red Bulls. With Columbus trailing by a goal, SAURO’s header found the back of the net.

Diego Valeri and Sebastian BLANCO both scored as Portland drew 3-3 against Colorado. Played under heavy snow conditions, VALERI scored Portland’s first of the match. They were awarded a penalty which VALERI missed but he drew Portland level off the rebound. BLANCO gave Portland the advantage off a corner kick.

Newly signed Erik GODOY scored for Vancouver in their 3-2 loss against Minnesota. After just six minutes of play, GODOY was at the end of a cross to score the first goal of the match.

Ignacio PIATTI scored for Montreal in their 2-1 win against San Jose. A lovely right footed finish from inside the area by the captain played a part in Matias ALMEYDA’s team losing their opening match of the season.


  1. Those who want rulli to be first choice gk should watch yesterday’s soceddiad’s match against athletico madrid ,he was awful and errorprone ,its high time that we should bring benitez in our squad

    • I am sure you have watched the ,i dont think any goalkeeper in the world would have saved those 2 goals from morata. What are you talking about.

      • Rulli was error prone he could have conceded four or five goals luckily that did not happen he do not know when to come forward or remain his own spot

    • Atletico would have scored 7goals if farmer league GK was there, not even De Gea could have saved that check number of times Rulli Whoscoored team of the week, highest by any GK in la liga

  2. Ignacio pussetto was super yesterday, he could be useful for Argentina, physically strong, hardworking, good header of ball and versatile, one of the revelation of seria a this season. What you guys think about him ?

    • Fantastic player, he was one of the standouts last season in the primera and he’s done really well thus far in his first year in europe playing for a struggling team in a strong league.
      You’re absolutely right about his versatility, the guy’s a winger by trade but he’s playing as a striker and he’s doing well in the position and he’s very defensively disciplined to boot, definitely merits a call up.

    • No Way, Otamendi is reckless sometimes who will find more freedom in committing fouls outside the box. Plus a DM need to be superb in passing techniques
      Probably Mammana would be able to play both as a center back and DM,
      What WE need really is a player who could be a mix of Paredes and Ascacibar.

      • Otamendi is good in passing . I am not sure but paredes and otamendi pivot may work togther so lanzini or lo celso will get freedom to move forward.
        Otamendi is reckless sometimes who will find more freedom in commits fouls same
        thing but ascacibar he doesnt hesisate to commit fouls.
        Mammana has speed and passing ability but but his defensive strength has not impressed me enough.

        • If Otamendi moves up to DM, would find a better center back? Don’t think so.Argentina should not resort to double pivot except in rare situations

          The only impressive center back available is Pezzella who is recovering from injury.

  3. Fedrico Navarro looks very solid ,a cmplete Box to Box midfielder(physically strong) from Talleres.Our another future star..
    we need him in under 20 world cup.
    Almendra +DM+Navarro

        • To me we have better options than Caseres. Battaglia, Paredes, Ascacibar, Nicolas Dominguez maybe even Lisandro Martinez adapted to DM or Navarro in future.

          I think against strong opponents we need more energetic type of No.5. Warrior kinda Masche, Battaglia, Ascacibar. Caseres is not that good destroyer. Paredes as well but he is better passer than Caseres who seems to be outstanding with his passing but that looks impressive mostly on stats with percent of correct passes. Most of them are still easy ones without taking risk. Ascacibar is inferior to Caseres when it comes to creative works but still thanks to his stamina and warriorihood I see him more needed for strongest opponents than Caseres.

          Nico Dominguez and Lisandro Martinez might be most balenced options. Might be. So far it’s just supposition.

      • This navarro guy is also in a radar for many huge clubs in Europe….it would be interesting to see his growth as we lack proper DM presently

          • Yeah,

            ATM I’m excited about midfield of Talleres Cordoba. With 40yo Guinazu retiring yesterday youngsters like Cubas, Navarro, Pochettino and Ramirez will took the midfield. Cubas, Navarro duo of DMs looks exciting. Now Navarro will got starting spot probably.

  4. Fabrizio Angileri becomes new River Plate player. With that I expect him sooner or later being in NT.

  5. Ever Banega,Lanzini Aguero and Romero should be in this squad.They need chemistry with team.Last six friendlies were completely for youngster.Two matches needed to create chemistry before Copa 2019
