Javier Mascherano, the coach of the Argentina U20 team called the player up to the team for the youth tournament in France. And it was in the team’s 6-2 loss vs. France where Garnacho scored the goal of the tournament.

Argentina were awarded a free kick and Garnacho took it and scored. It was his first of two goals in that match.
