The National Team midfielder starred in a very unusual action in Chelsea-Seville.
UEFA Europa League winners Sevilla started their Champions League journey with a 0-0 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Argentine Marcos Acuña was part of the starting team in the Spanish team and what was notorious was the particular play he carried out, since his main partner was the corner pennant.
It happened while the minute 43 was being played, when the Egg decided to make such an impressive play, it ended up going viral. Acuña seemed not to reach a ball that seemed to be lost on the final line, until the flag played in his favor and, in a stroke of luck, returned the ball to the field of play.
Once on his feet, the Neuquén made use of all his quality and with a beautiful pipe he removed the mark from Pulisic and then sent a cross that ended near the left post of Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
The Argentine National Team player arrived in Seville in September this year from Sporting de Portugal. The contract links him with the Spanish institution until June 2024.
Marcos Acuña will not have an easy task, since his incorporation occurred due to the departure of former Real Madrid Sergio Reguilón to Tottenham in England. Marcos must fulfill the mission of replacing him in a position that, although it is not his natural place, he has already become accustomed to filling.
His first performances in the Julen Lopetegui team have left him in line with his fans and thanks to this he achieved good reactions on social networks from the fans.
