Valentín Barco gives update on his substitution at U20 World Cup


Valentín Barco gave an update on his substitution at the U20 World Cup.

Barco was substituted out for the Argentina U20 national team by coach Javier Mascherano during the team’s 3-0 win vs. Guatemala on Tuesday. He was substituted out after being kicked and fouled during the match.

The 18 year old has been one of Argentina’s stand out players at the U20 World Cup. Speaking to the media after the match, here is what Barco had to say about his substitution:

“It was a knock, it hurt a bit but well. We reached our first goal, we came looking for it, now to try and finish first in the group.”

He also commented on his exposure:

“I take it calmly. I try not to give it too much importance, not to lose my concentration.”

The Argentine said he is very proud to wear the shirt of the Argentina national team and thanked the fans:

“They always backed me and I try to return the affection with small details that make them happy.”


  1. Lautaro with a winning brace in Coppa final to cancelled out Nico early opener for Fiorentina. Lets see if Lautaro can top Julian in CL final…

    Hopefully Dybala will be fit for Europa final and he could face lots of his compatriots. Almost all our players are in top form and I believe the WC victory lifted everyone’s confidence. Lamela scored again today aswell.

    • I would love to see Lautaro and Inter beat City!! Don’t want Tapnaldo fans to hype another tapin master from City to challenge Messi for the BallonDor even though World cup is greater trophy than any European championships!!

      • I’m rooting for Inter aswell but it would be tough task. However, City never win CL and in 1 leg game, I could see them choked yet again. If it goes to shootout, the preasure would be on City.

        As for Ballon, I’d love Messi to win it but he already has a freakin SEVEN of that and most importantly he has lifted the WORLD CUP. After the WC & CA victories, everything else that Messi achieve will be just a sidequest.

    • I will support Manchester City because of Pep Guardiola and Alvarez. Furthermore I believe Messi and Aguero might as well be backing City.

    “Atlético Madrid, Chelsea and one unnamed club — Leandro Paredes’ agent was contactd by three clubs. He will leave PSG and also he has a bad relationship with Juve coach.”

    I said a month ago if pochettino become Chelsea manager he will try to sign leo paredes still I don’t know if that will happen but one thing I know pochettino is big fan of leo paredes

    • I dunno if Paredes game fits Enzo. They both always want the ball and both are not that good defensively. From most Chelsea trusted sources, they would like a defensive minded DM to partner Enzo. Moises Caicedo is one of the main options.

      If Poch wants to unlock Enzo to his fullest potential, sign a DM like Caicedo, give Enzo free role. Now Chelsea dunno how to use him. They use him like he is Guido Rodriguez.
