Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez is becoming a regular at the international level, and he’s delighted for the opportunity with his national team.
Internazionale Milan striker Lautaro Martinez is enjoying his time with the Argentina national team.
The 22-year-old forward has become a regular at the international level, scoring six goals in 12 matches played.
“I am happy to be here, especially as many of the squad were also my teammates during the Copa America,” he told Tyc Sports.
“I know that I have to work even harder, but the Copa America this summer was my first major tournament with the Seleccion and it was very positive.”
“On a personal level, I was surprised by just how much playing time I had in the Copa America. I started off expecting to be on the bench and slowly became the first pick,” he added.
“It was remarkable, as I hadn’t played that much for Inter during the previous season, but that made me happy and boosted my confidence.”
“When playing with Sergio Aguero and Leo Messi, obviously you have to work harder to protect the midfield and defense, but I do more or less the same at Inter when we have two strikers,” he concluded.
