Gio Simeone has commented on not being included in the Argentina national team.
Simeone ended his last campaign with 17 goals in 36 games with Verona. Now with Napoli, the Argentine has three goals in eight games, with all of his appearaces being as a substiute.
The 27 year old was last called up to the Argentina national team in 2020 and last played in 2018 where he had an assist. Speaking in an interview with La Nación, the Argentine had this to say:
“Many times I ask myself what am I missing and how do I get Scaloni to see me.”
“The dream of being in the list is still there. There are a lot of good players and the group is very strong. It becomes difficult to enter a place where everything is going well. All I have to do is be ready to offer what I can.
“I came to ask myself if I will be at the level to be able to compete and I wonder what I have to improve on to be able to belong. Maybe it’s just being patient and to wait for my time. That’s why I will always be prepared.
“Every Sunday I count on the possibility of being able to show Scaloni that I want to be there. The national team is a unique place and if I’m not there now, tomorrow I will be back to try and convince everyone.”
