Luca Romero has expressed his excitement at scoring goals again for Argentina’s Under-20s, but prefers to keep a low profile compared to Lionel Messi.

“I’m happy for the win and for the group assembled. All the goals are worth one,” Romero told reporters in the mixed zone of the San Juan del Bicentenario stadium.

Despite plaudits from his teammates and quick comparisons to Messi, the Lazio youngster from Italy described his outstanding goal in Argentina’s 3-0 rout of New Zealand with embarrassment.

“I caught the ball in the middle of the field and I tried to turn and then I faced the goal and when I saw that the centre-backs weren’t coming out, I thought of hitting it,” the left-hander said. He made Spanish La Liga history for debuting in a Mallorca shirt at just 15 years old.

Although he was born in Mexico during the experience of his father Diego, a former footballer in Quilmes, Romero chose to wear the “Albiceleste” again in 2019 when he played in the Under-15 tournament in Paraguay alongside Agustín Guia. , Valentin Fargo and goalkeeper Federico Gomez Gerth.

“Now we’re going to get the rest we need, have fun and be with the family. We have time to think about the next game,” said “16,” who was applauded by the San Juan crowd when he was substituted.
