Ángel Di María scores for Benfica, receives standaing ovation


Ángel Di María scored for Benfica and received a standing ovation when he was substituted out in their 5-0 win vs. Arouca.

Di María started the match for Benfica and when they were awarded a penalty kick, he tried to convince Rafa to take the penalty but Rafa refused. Rafa is leaving Benfica at the end of the season and Di María tried to get him a goal but it was Di María who took the penalty and scored.

Casper Tengstedt was substituted in for Di María in the second half and Di María received a standing ovation as he was leaving the pitch. There have been reports that the Argentine could be leaving Benfica at the end of the season and join Inter Miami.


  1. If its 26 player squad, then I think garnacho will go, if 23.. not sure, but garnacho has pace, and Messi likes players who run behind and give cut back..

  2. Garnacho needs to practice more on finishing and his shooting, the talent is there. ETH relies on him but a question mark when the new coach is appointed, but for time being he will not suit for N/T

  3. Garnacho, possibly the worst wonderkid I’ve ever seen. He’s too easy to defend. Never understood the hype, when he’s practically good at nothing. Hope, Argentina never summons him

    • Wait. For me currently he is useful for argentina as a sub. His pace is useful and can make opposition in their toes. We do not have this type of a player. Nico is not at all good in the final third. Garnacho is still better. And i agree on that garnacho is just a normal player currently unless he improves his level from next season. Nothing extra ordinary. His step over move is just a fancy footwork which wont work against quality defenders. If we select him it is still better than nico.

      • he is still 19 yrs old and play for man utd… time will tell ! hold on indian friends. this is football not cricket😁.garnacho, mastantiono and echevierri are only argentina players to win ballor d or in coming years.
