“The truth is that even if he plays three, as a midfielder or forward, I always leave my life for the National Team, and in these two games with Paraguay and Peru it was essential that my teammates supported me. I sincerely felt comfortable with Giovani Lo Celso and Nicolás Tagliafico on the left “, he confided to radio Rivadavia the current center forward in German Stuttgart.
However, the former Argentinos Juniors admitted that it was “very difficult to play three against Paraguay”. And he remarked: “I’m not used to the position, but in two days I learned it very well.

Then he referred to the injury caused by Paraguayan Ángel Romero to his partner Exequiel Palacios, which led to a serious injury in the lower back that will take him away from the courts for three months and questioned that “the VAR did not intervene and did not have a yellow card. they showed him, even though he jumped with both knees up, something that no player does“.
“The worst thing is that he already injured a colleague of his (Andrés Herrera) in San Lorenzo. The truth is that when I saw Palacios on the floor telling me that his legs were falling asleep, I despaired. Luckily today I spoke with him and he is improving “, commented González, who in just five games in the Senior National Team has already scored two goals, both fundamental for Argentina to score points in these Qualifiers.
