No goalkeeper could stop goals I conceded against Nigeria – Argentina goalkeeper, Marchesín

Argentina international goalkeeper, Agustín Marchesín, has finally spoken about the goals he conceded during the friendly game against Nigeria.

Marcehesin manned the goal-post for Argentina when the Super Eagles beat Argentina 4-2 in November.

The goalkeeper said he was surprised at his national team coach, Jorge Sampaoli’s refusal to invite him for Argentina’s pre-World Cup friendly matches against Spain and Italy.

There has been suggestions that he was snubbed for conceding four goals against Nigeria.

Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi and Brian Idowu were on target for the Super Eagles in the friendly that took place in Krasnodar.

The CF América goalkeeper argued that no goalkeeper would have stopped the balls from entering into the net even though he has been blamed for at least two of the goals conceded.

He told close Continental, “I do not think that this match should be the only parameter to decide whether or not you can be in the Albiceleste.

“I play every weekend I think I’m doing things well to continue in the National Team.

“I am not stupid and I know that Nigeria’s match was not a normal game, but I know how the goals were, I do not think any other goalkeeper could stop those balls.

“It’s my dream to play at the World Cup and I still do not consider myself off the list.”
