Marcos Senesi joins the Argentina national team for Finalissima match vs. Italy


Marcos Senesi has joined the Argentina national team for the Finalissima match vs. Italy.

Senesi has landed in Bilbao, Spain, the location of Argentina’s training camp. The team is already training for the match vs. Italy as Senesi is one of the last players to join.

The Argentine has received his first ever call up to the national team and is one of the last players to join as he played for Feyenoord in the Conference League final. Arriving at the airport, he spoke with Gastón Edul of TyC Sports, here is what he had to say:

“I am happy to have played a final. It’s a pity for the result. I am also very happy to join the group. I am very happy, I always waited for this opportunity. I hope to make the most of it.”

He was also called up to the Italy national team by coach Roberto Mancini but the Argentine selected to play for Argentina:

“It wasn’t difficult for me to choose to play for the Argentina national team and not Italy. I felt it in my heart that it was going to come.”

  1. One thought I is coming in my mind. Is it possible to play Senesi as a left back. Like Scaloni some times use Foyth as RB. If Scaloni play Senesi as left back Molina can attack more. I believe Senesi is less error prone than foyth. More reliable. For experiment Scaloni should choose Estonia match. Also I believe Buendia should be selected as we have very less number of mid fielders.
    Neuhan perez out Buendia in.
    Montiel out Paredes in.

    Enzo perez is also a good option. But I am sure Buendia will be included in squad in next match

    • Enzo perez is very old no need to call him. Senesi is slow so better not to play him at left back. If you want to try another player apart from acuna or tagliafico thn it should be medina not senesi

      • It is better to try lisandro at left back than Senesi if there is an immediate need. No need of any other new player like Medina. Even Nico can be placed in the left back position and papu be a 3rd option as the left winger behind maria and Nico.

        • Our most players are suitable for more than 1 position. That would be a great benefit for scaloni.
          Lisandro- CB, DM
          Foyth- CB, RB
          Acuna- LB, LMF
          Molina- RB,RMF
          De Paul- CMF, DM, AMF
          Lo celso- CMF, AMF, LMF, SS
          Palacios- DM, CMF
          Papu- CMF, AMF, LW
          Nico- LW, LMF, LB
          Still it’s all about scalonis cunningness and intelligence that should make the difference.

        • Enzo Fernandez is an absolute necessity hope he gets the chance to travel to qatar. He is very talented he is the only one who can replace depaul. We can without him bt only if every starters play every match and no injury or suspension happens thats quite unlikely

      • right no more junior needed we have enough players on all position (senior) just need great coaching skill techniques etc
        remember we couldn’t win even copa for such a long time
        this time we did it so there are a reason
