Following in the footsteps of his teammates, central defender Nicolas Otamendi stated that he would like to go to Paris 2024. “Everything related to the Argentine National Team, you want to be there. Obviously it is a title that excites me, motivates me and I never had the opportunity to make youth players in the National Team, and to be as a senior would be a dream,” said the Benfica footballer in dialogue with DSports. “Obviously we all want to be there. I’m always going to be available to wear the national team’s jersey, whether it’s at the Olympics or the Copa America… but the decision is Javier’s. As an Argentine, you want to defend the shirt at any time and hopefully if it’s my turn, I can continue to enjoy it,” said the defender.De Paul and his desire to go to the Olympic Games: “It would be a dream to defend the National Team in everything I compete”With just over four months to go until the Olympic Games, Rodrigo De Paul said that he would like to be part of the Argentine National Team that will compete in Paris 2024, although he acknowledged that it will not be easy because it depends on Atlético Madrid giving him permission. I would love to play in the Olympics. It would be a dream to defend the National Team in everything it competes in,” said the Qatar 2022 world champion, in an interview with the Rumis YouTube channel. But he clarified: “The thing is that the Olympics don’t belong to FIFA, so the clubs don’t have an obligation to lend you.” Obviously there is (Javier) Masche who has a lot of players, but he knows that on my side he can count on me,” said De Paul, who also announced that he is working on a docuseries in which he will tell his life.
