The Argentine team closed its friendly tour of Asia with a comfortable 2-0 victory against Indonesia with goals from Leandro Paredes and Cristian Romero. Those led by Lionel Scaloni did not have the presence of Lionel Messi, Ángel Di María and Nicolás Otamendi by decision of the coaching staff, so the fans were excited to see Alejandro Garnacho from the start of the match. However, the Manchester United winger came on in the second half and took the spotlight of the cameras anyway.

Before the initial whistle at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, the anthems of both countries were sung and the moment in which the broadcast showed Alejandro singing the national verses went viral on social networks. “Or let’s swear to die with glory”, was read on the lips of Garnacho who entered 14 minutes into the second half instead of Nicolás González and it was the first time that Scaloni put two 18-year-old players on the field by having Facundo Buonanotte on court.

The Red Devils promise went one-on-one against Indonesian captain Asnawi Bahar and had a hard time making progress on his individual plays due to the number of defenders who constantly came to reinforce the mark. At the end he was able to escape twice and added his first shot on goal. After a combination with Thiago Almada, the Atlanta United midfielder assisted Garnacho who defined something tight and goalkeeper Ernando Ari Sutaryadi covered with his left foot.

Alejandro added a total of 46 minutes between the games against Australia and Indonesia and was one match away from being armored for life for the Argentine team. “I did not doubt anything because I feel Argentine, because I am Argentine. They bet on me and I was clear about it, it is a very big team and a very good opportunity. I don’t need to play three games, if I don’t debut this tour it doesn’t matter: I already know that I want to be with Argentina, ”he explained at the start of the tour in a chat with TyC Sports.

The next FIFA window is dated from September 4 to 12 and will mark the start of the South American Qualifiers for the World Cup in the United States, Canada and Mexico 2026. On the first day, the Albiceleste will be local against Ecuador as a local and If there were no problems, it could mean Garnacho’s first official duel in national territory with the Senior Team.
