Adolfo GAICH has received his first call-up to the senior Argentina national team and he wants to take advantage of it.
One of the star players recently for Fernando BATISTA’s Argentina U23 team, GAICH was scoring goals for fun at the FIFA U20 World Cup and the Pan American Games where Argentina won gold. The San Lorenzo man spoke with ESPN where he talked about his call-up and how coach Lionel SCALONI phoned him to tell him.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I was watching television and I got a message: It was him who wanted to tell me… He called me and we spoke a bit. It was to tell me that the list of players was going to be released and I would be included.
“I didn’t have him in my contacts and when I realized it was him, it was a very nice surprise and there was lots of joy. I was quick to put his name in my contacts.
“It’s a beautiful opportunity, a nice reward for the form I’ve had. Now I have to take advantage of this great chance and to enjoy it also.”
