Vazquez closes to Italy

Franco Vazquez professes his love for his home country and closes to a future with the Azzurri: 'I feel Argentinian'.

The former Palermo midfielder, currently playing for Sevilla, enjoys dual citizenship and can still be called up for Giampiero Ventura's team.

Current Argentina Coach Edgardo Bauza mentioned that he was considering Vazquez among others, and this prompted a response from the player.

“I feel Argentinian,” he told El Grafico. “When I had the chance to play for Italy, the former Argentina Coach had shut his doors to me, and that's why I accepted to play for them.”

Vazquez's only game for the Azzurri to date remains a 1-1 friendly against England in March 2015.

His father is from Argentina, but his mother is Italian.
