Julián Álvarez, Emiliano Martínez, Nicolás Otamendi, overage Argentina players at Olympics


Julián Álvarez, Emiliano Martínez and Nicolás Otamendi will be the three overage players for Argentina at the Olympics.

Argentina Olympic coach Javier Mascherano now has his three overage players for the Olympics in France. According to Ariel Senosiain, the three players over the age of 23 which will represent Argentina at the Olympic games will be Julián Álvarez, Emiliano Martínez and Nicolás Otamendi.

Two names that will be going to the Olympics are Lucas Beltrán and Alan Varela, with both Fiorentina and FC Porto authorizing them to join the team. Argentina are also making progress with Enzo Fernandez to get him to be with the team in France.


  1. wow. that is quite a strong squad getting ready to take over Paris. Masche seems winning the 1st round of securing good players unlike recent Olympics coaches. Olympics team size is normally 18 players. Assuming Masche also gets Enzo F as getting reported , team can end up like below:
    Varela – Enzo Fernandez
    Subs: Brey(GK), Lujan, Quiros ( Defense) , Ezequeil Fernandez, Kevin Zenon ( Midfield), Echeveri ( AM), Luciano Gondou ( CF)
    Quiros & Lujan can be the left/right back up .
    The one big risk is Barco being released by Brighton & that looks very tough.
