The players who work in our country will train March 30 and 31 at the Ezeiza campus under the command of coach Carlos Borrello.
As happened in the last call, the much-questioned coach Borrello called forward Florencia Bonsegundo, from Valencia of Spain, absent since the 2018 World Cup in France due to differences with the coaching staff due to the exclusion of Estefanía Banini, Ruth Bravo and Belén Potassa .
Although of course, the return of Bonsegundo could not materialize this time either, since since last February 25 he has been recovering from a second degree sprain in his right ankle.
The 34 summoned for the preselection are:
Archers: Laurina Oliveros (Boca), Yanina Sosa (Racing), Ariana Álvarez (UAI Urquiza) and Vanina Correa (Espanyol, Spain).
Defenders: Adriana Sachs (Boca), Eliana Stabile (Boca), Florencia Santander (Platense), Natalie Juncos (Racing), Milagros Otazú (Racing), Giulana González (River), Daniela Mereles (River), Marina Delgano (UAI Urquiza), Sophia Braun (Gonzaga University, USA) and Aldana Cometti (Levante, Spain).
Midfielders: Miriam Mayorga (Boca), Lucía Guiñazú (Gymnastics and Fencing La Plata), Magalí Natta (Platense), Paloma Fagiano (Racing), Loana Bernhard (SAT), Romina Núñez (UAI Urquiza), Daiana Falfán (UAI Urquiza), Catalina Ongaro (UAI Urquiza), Vanesa Santana (Huelva, Spain) and Betina Soriano (Sporting, Costa Rica).
