Emiliano Buendia of Norwich City on Argentina team: “I see it as a real option”


Emiliano Buendia spoke about wanting to play with the Argentina national team.

Buendia, currently a regular im the Norwich starting eleven, has impressed during the season and many have been wanting to see him called to the Argentina national team. He has already represented Argentina at youth level and speaking with AS, here’s what he had to say:

“I see it as a real option. It’s a dream talking about it. I was lucky to wear the shirt at the U20 World Cup (in New Zealand in 2015) and the truth is that thinking about doing the same thing with the senior team makes me anxious. It’s what I work for every day.”

Still only 23 years old, Buendia has played for Getafe but is optimistic about his time with Norwich.

“I have to do things well with my club and after that I’ll have the opportunity. Hopefully things go well for me in order to be called up sooner rather than later.

“One always aspires to reach the highest level, at the best teams in the world and in terms of international, to play with the national team.”



  1. Musso – Montiel Foyth Quarta Tagliafico – Lo Celso Paredes Macalester – Messi – Icardi Lautaro

    the guy came on in the injury time it took only few seconds to make a amazing trickery and the vision DAMN this guy is THE future.

    • Was awesome to see him subbed on at minute 94 and have an immediate impact on the winning goal! An eye opener for Brighton management and a good step towards a starting position in the team

      • Actually he also played well in his first match away against wolves where he came on as a sub and played 5 – 10 minutes but created many dangerous chances everytime he was on the ball you knew he might do something interesting . And against arsenal he showed it. As you said I hope tat idiotic management start playing him more .

  3. Baundia this man is real talent, only things he is lacking little bit more pace, if he had little more pace, he is no, 1 options better than any other option in midfield even baundia>Dybala or any other player if he had little fast , baundia like to hold ball on his feet, messi also like to hold ball on his fit

  4. Palacios watching the game from home, Alario on the bench, Balerdi on the bench, Mac Allister on the bench. Anyone else getting frustrated? ^^
    Atleast Guido Rodriguez is starting..

    • I’m getting worried about Argentine player’s careers in Germany none of them are playing NONE OF THEM. Ascacibar, palacios,balerdi,alario an exception but even then he is only a rotational striker at bayer German league might not be a good place for Argentines to develop whereas the English are treating Argentines well relatively in their league.

  5. Nehuen perez in familcao fc yesterdays match against braga fc in portugese league played the entire match as a RB so hopefully if nehuen perez dosent get chance to play as CB in NT then maybe Scaloni could try his as a RB in case if Foyth form is not good or if he is injured for a long time hopefully Foyth cements RB position in NT

  6. Haven’t followed buendia that much, so can’t say much about whether he deserves to be selected or not. May be he does. Sometimes a good club player may not make you a good NT player.

    But in order to know that the player needed to be tested in the NT. In our case As always there r so many names to be tested out. Let’s see. First we need to atleast start playing. I don’t see our NT playing any match this year.

  7. All of us may have sonething in common here.


    GK- Carrizo, Goychocchia
    DF- Heinze, Ayala, Samuel, Tarantini
    MF- Mascherano, Veron, Ortega, Dimaria
    FWD- Kempes, Caniggia, Crespo, Aguero

    Honorable Mentions: Moreno, Perfumo, Marzolini, Cambiasso, Simeone, Buruchagga, Tevez, Higuain, D Alessandro, Palermo, Lopez, Saviola.

    I ruled out de Estafano because he played more for Spain.

    Yes I am bored.. Life in Pandemic.
    You can try yours too.

  8. Emi must get selected for the NT. His versatility and great technique would surely benefit the NT

  9. Setien dumb cost Barca and Messi lose the chance to win against Sevilla last night. Same as Valverde Setien did not have a clue and vision of the game. Ansu Fati is on fire but did not get a chance to play, with Frankie de Jong missed the game, Messi works alone… Impossible to win La Liga and CL with this performance> Setien have to optimize the young and more energetic players, with the allowance of 5 subs;

    Hurtful Messi always have an unfortunate coach in the club or N/T. Only Pep and Tito knows how to handle him and bring the reliable team work

    BTW Ocampos is just doing great ! Thats good news.

    • Lionel Messi even enjoyed playing under Alejandro Sabella and Luis Enrique (both brilliant coaches) and as a result he got to a WC final under Sabella and won UCL under Enrique

    • very poor game managment from setien. he was just standing on the sideline like a spectator. suarez playing 90′ , fati didnt get a chance , puig comes in on 88′ min & not using 5 subs disastrous!!!!
      Dont know what he was thinking, maybe he was high….😅
      valverde 2.0 coming soon😵

      • Spot on Smeet. Shame to see the incompetence of this Barca board wasting Messi’s final years. Either way I still hope they manage to sign Lautaro and Tagliafico.
        Next year they have presidential elections and ex-president Joan LaPorta is going to run again, and he has said he wants to rehire Pep Guardiola as coach. Would be awesome to see this happen!

  10. Anybody saw Buendia performance against Southampton? Can you give insight here, also Lo Celso played 20 mins against Man U.

    Lucas Ocampos did OK today considering Sevilla had a less possession, powerful shot towards Ter Stegen if it would have been other GK that might be a goal.

  11. Barcelona is shameless, Suarez finished don’t think lautaro alone become solution, Barcelona need more quality players. Griezmann, Dembele, Coutinho waste of money. Real wining the league 100%, Hazard is back so Assensio and Benzema roaring.

    • Germany has the strongest team right now in GK, midfield as well as attack. Neuer/Tar Stegen – Kimmich Sule Ginter Klostermaan – Kross Goretzka – Ganabry Havartz Sane – Werner
