Mario Ledesma gave a press conference on Thursday where he announced the starting team to face Romania next Saturday from 14.50 live on ESPN and ESPN 2, and one of the biggest surprises was the inclusion of Pablo Matera.
Why a surprise If it is one of the highest performance points of the selected one? The third line suffered an injury with Stade Francais that prevented him from finishing the season on the pitch. “The thing about Matera is a bone edema, he arrived with some pain, but the pain went away. The diagnosis made by the Paris doctor was not so optimistic, “Ledesma explained.
As Scrum.com learned, Matera trained in a different way the first days in Bucharest, but everything changed at the beginning of this week. “On Tuesday he had a great training session, had an impressive impact on the team and raised his hand.” Ledesma added.
The Stade Francais player will start again for Los Pumas, a fundamental player in the team’s structure that is increasingly surprising. Or maybe, not so much: “Matera stopped surprising me a long time ago, it is not the first time that she has returned quickly from an injury“, concluded the trainer.
