Lucas Ocampos: “The World Cup is more than an important objective.”


Lucas Ocampos has expressed his desire to be at the 2022 Qatar World Cup with the Argentina national team.

Ocampos has featured several times with the Argentina national team with Lionel Scaloni as coach. While not part of the team at the Copa America or the Finalissima, he does still get called-up to the team. Speaking at a press conference with his club Sevilla, the 28 year old spoke about the World Cup and being with Argentina. Here is what he had to say:

“The World Cup is more than an important objective. Every player wants to play it and more so in my country.

“I was in many call-ups but not the last one or the Copa America but I was not discouraged, the opposite. I want to work harder and start the season well with Seville because that way my opportunity can surely come. That the five Argentine’s of the team (would be there) would be beautiful for us and would also speak highly of the club.”



    A good article on our beloved CR7. A superstar that nobody wants.

    He ruined Juventus and MU and his next team has more chance to be ruined than to enjoy him scoring another 20+ goals/season.

    He makes it clear to Mendes his agent that he wants a CL contender but none of the CL contender in top 3 leagues (EPL, Serie A, La Liga) want him.

    Liverpool has Nunez. City has Haaland. Hotspur has Kane. Chelsea has no one but Tuchel clearly says no.

    The same goes to La Liga and Serie A. Madrid makes it clear that they only want Mbappe in the future. Barca chose Lewa instead. Atletico fans even did a bit of riot saying that they don’t want CR7. Sevilla? Nah.

    The same goes to Inter (too many strikers), Juventus (Vlahovic), Napoli (Osimhen), and Milan. There is just no spot for him. PSG or Bayern? No way.

    I am not sure even bis childhood club Sporting Lisbon would want him. How about this? River Plate, go sign him. Lol… It would be one of the greatest stories in world futbol.

    CR7 did it again, he already destroyed 2 big clubs Juventus and MU. Now he is looking for another target just to satisfy his ambition.

  2. looks like everyone wants to be in world cup, unfortunately possibility of inclusion of ocampos is very low, he could be an important player for argentina bcs he could give some pace aggression but he lacks short space skills, link up play
