The Argentine National Team fell 2-0 in the debut of the 2020 olympic games against Australia, a team that was far from being light: it made effective those it generated and, with constant fouls, dislodged the Albiceleste; anyway, he played better.
Even so, we must not be left with the bias of defeat. Today, a small sixty-seven meter excited. Ezequiel BarcoYes, that footballer who, after enchanting the soccer people in his premature appearance in Independiente (ARG), we lost track of him when he left for MLS, raised his hand and warned that the talent he forged with hours of pasture in Villa Gobernador , Santa Fe, did not lose it.
From the beginning of the game, the winger was active in taking the reins of the team led by Fernando Batista, grabbing the ball and facing the first one that crossed him, as he used to aggressively for 17 years at the Libertadores de América Stadium: It marked it, it eluded it and it went straight towards the rival arc.
This posture was repeated from start to finish. Far from staying with his head down due to the disadvantage on the scoreboard, he did not stop trying and almost made a goal – the crossbar prevented him – from a long distance from the rival goal.

Although he was substituted in the second half for Pedro De La Vega to enter, Boat He was the man of the match and showed that he did not forget about playing football.
At 22, he still has time to jump into European football and become more than just a diamond in the rough. But, above all, to accompany Lionel Andrés in his last rounds with the National Team. Today he showed that Scaloni can count on him whenever he wants.
Ladies and gentlemen, Ezequiel dribbled again. Standing up to thank him for the show given in a sad morning after falling.
