translated from Spanish: Sergio Agüero celebrates 100 matches with the Argentine National Team

There are not many players to reach this moment and perhaps in several points is the explanation, but it is clear that despite the number of tournaments, friendlies and other matches that are played in modern times, reaching 100 games with the Argentine National Team is not little. Today, in the duel against Bolivia, Sergio Agüero gets into that select list of seven players who reached the marks, in a race that began on September 3, 2006 when he entered the duel against Brazil, played in Lóndres, in the place of Carlos Tevez. That day, with the “Coco” Basile on the bench was going to be unforgettable for the “Kun” despite the defeat.

Sergio Agüero reached 100 games with the Argentina national team. 

He had to wait until November 17, 2007 for his first goal in the Senior Team. After being left out of the Copa America but being world champion Under 20, Agüero opened the scoring in the 3-0 win against Bolivia, in the Monumental, to start a scoring stage. Throughout the 15 years he has been in the albiceleste, Agüero scored 41 goals that consecrate him as the third top scorer of the team behind Lionel Messi (74 goals) and Gabriel Batistuta (54), who is still in the sights of a “Kun” who seeks to regain ownership in the team. Against Bolivia, once again in sergio’s history, comes the 100th match desired in a Copa America in which he will look to get the mufa. Tonight, Lionel Messi will be the player with the most appearances in history with 148 appearances and among them there are five more names: Javier Mascherano (147), Javier Zanetti (143), Roberto Ayala (114), Ángel Di María (108) and Diego Simeone (104).
