Werder Bremen striker Franco di Santo has expressed his desire to be part of the Argentine national team at the World Cup 2014. The player is once again back in the eyes of national team manager Sabella after making the move to Werder Bremen. Previously, he was playing for Wigan, who are team fighting against relegation. The move to Werder Bremen, though, gives him much bigger exposure and the possibility of adding to his international caps. Di Santo is no stranger to international football after having made his debut for the national team while playing for Wigan.
This debut came in 2012 and since then he has featured in three matches for the national team. In order to get into the squad for the World Cup 2014, he is aware that there is a lot of competition for places. The likes of Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi are regarded as some of the best in the world, but Di Santo could get into the squad because he offers something different to the manager – height. Along with Gonzalo Higuain of Napoli, the 24-year-old remains as one of the target man strikers that Sabella can pick for the World Cup. The striker has scored four goals in 19 appearances for Werder Bremen in a very poor season for the club.
“Truth is that I try to take it easy and try to do things as long-La. I think it’s a dream in which all Argentine wants to be and which always works beyond thinking in his club. It’s something that does not happen every year and sometimes be complicated, but it would be a dream and one of the greatest things that can get me through in life. Alejandro Sabella came to see a game and could be on the list of 30 Beyond-No. That the truth that I know nothing,” said Di Santo.
