The Argentina national team is very motivated ahead of the Copa America 2024 this summer in the United States. Argentina is the current World Champions and the holder of the Copa America, but one big motivation to win the Copa America this summer is to win it for a legend, Angel Di Maria. Di Maria will retire from the national team after this tournament, and it could also be Lionel Messi’s last. The duo has been key for the Argentina national team for many years, and while Messi seems to be playing again after this summer, the national team manager, Lionel Scaloni, needs to find Di Maria’s replacement. The young star who is set to be a key player for Argentina is Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho. He will play in his first major tournament representing Argentina, and he will look to make a name for himself by becoming the ideal replacement for Di Maria on the national team for many years.

He made his debut with the Argentina national team last year on June 15th in a 2-0 friendly match win against Australia. Since then, he has made five total appearances with the national team, but he has yet to score for them. The Copa America feels like the perfect opportunity to make his mark and show why he is the future of Argentina. Garnacho got called up to the national team for the first time in March 2023.

Garnacho was impressed this season with Manchester United as he had a major role in the team. He made 50 appearances across all competitions for Manchester United. He scored a total of 10 goals and provided five assists. He often plays on the left since he is a right-footed player, but he shined as a right winger. The dynamic is what Di Maria possessed in the national team as well.
