Alexis Mac Allister of Brighton commented on making his official Argentina national team debut and the World Cup.
Mac Allister had been previously called up to the Argentina national team and did play two friendly matches. The first in 2019 was a 0-0 draw vs. Chile and the second a 4-0 win vs. Mexico. However, he did start both of Argentina’s last World Cup qualifiers.
“Being able to debut was something nice, something that I dreamed about for a long time and didn’t happen for different reasons.
“I felt very good, they were two very positive matches for me. I believe and feel that I could have done a lot better but I joined a team that has been playing together for a long time. Taking that into account, I accomplished very well what Scaloni asked of me.”
In regards to the Argentina national team at the 2022 Qatar World Cup:
“Argentina are going to be a team which no team will want to play, a very tough team. We have the best in the world, I believe we will be there fighting. I think teams are going to fear them (Argentina) and we have earned it.”
