Lanzini earns maiden Argentina call up

Manuel Lanzini has been rewarded for his great form in West Ham colours with a maiden call up to the Argentine national team for their upcoming friendlies vs Brazil and Singapore next month.

Lanzini has represented Argentina at U20 level, but has never made a senior appearance for the Albiceleste.

We reckon this is well deserved for him- he was West Ham’s Players Player of the Season for 2016/17, and probably the club’s most creative player following the departure of Dimitri Payet. It took him a while to settle down, but he really came into his own in the 16/17 season.

It’s a strong Argentine squad- the likes of Lionel Messi, Mauro Icardi, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain are all in it.
