Leonardo Balerdi is the new face of the Argentine National Team list, in view of the CONMEBOL Qualifying window against Paraguay and Peru.
The Olympique Marsella defender joins Nehuén Pérez, Nicolás Otamendi, Facundo Medina, Walter Kannemann and Lucas Martínez Quarta as the central defenders on the list.
The former Boca was already summoned by Scaloni and added a few minutes divided in the friendlies against Mexico and Ecuador in September and October 2019, respectively.
Balerdi has been filming this season with Marseille and even scored a goal, against Lorient in Ligue 1.
The 21-year-old player is one of the great Argentine promises in the position and Scaloni wants to shoot him in the senior team, even if he does not enter these matches for the CONMEBOL Qualifiers.
