The Catania midfielder Alejandro Gomez has revealed that he still has high hopes of playing for the Argentina national team, despite not being selected yet by the manager Sabella. The 24-year-old has been one of the best players for Catania this season. He arrived at the club back in 2010 and he has risen to be one of the important players this season. He has so far scored four goals in 14 appearances he has made in the league along with the five assists as well. His form has not gone unnoticed after that have been calls for his selection into the Argentina national team.
Alejandro Gomez has revealed that he is aware of the fact that it is extremely difficult to get into the national team, while it is even more difficult for players playing outside the big clubs like Milan and Juventus. Even though he has said that playing for Argentina will be his main priority, he has not ruled out the possibility of representing the Italian national team if the opportunity to play for the South Americans does not arise. There have been a number of players in the past who have chosen the Italian national team on the basis of being naturalised rather than being born in the nation.
“Here in Italy, people see me playing every week and they see I’m doing fine, scoring goals. So they ask me: ‘When do you think you’ll be called up by Argentina?’ But I always tell them the same thing. In the position I play, there are players that are world class. They play at the top clubs in the world and I think it’ll be complicated for me to make it. I realise I play for Catania and that doesn’t exactly sell papers like if I played, for example, for Inter. That’s the reality,” said Gomez.
