Facundo Medina called up to the Argentina national team


Facundo Medina has been called up to the Argentina national team.

Medina is in the team for the September World Cup qualifying matches. The AFA made the announcement on Sunday.

The 24 year old defender was previously part of the team for the June friendly matches where he played against Indonesia. Lisandro Martínez was substituted out with what appeared to be an injury for Manchester United and this could possibly be seen as an emergency called up by Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni.
