Chelsea second choice goalkeeper Willy Caballero was happy to be given an invite to join the Argentina national team after some impressive performances for Chelsea.

The Chelsea goalkeeper was invited for Argentina’s games against Italy and Spain, and was in goal for Argentina’s 2-0 win against the Italians in what was his debut match for his national team.

Caballero revealed his happiness at joining the Argentina squad and hopes to be part of the squad for the World Cup.

“When you’re a kid and you watch the World Cup, you dream of hearing the anthem with the team’s shirt on. I want it with all my heart,” said Caballero.

“I would get goose bumps. What brought me to this point is the constant work, not getting out of my head that I could come in. I did not resign myself, I did not give in.

“I always had it in mind [to play for Argentina]. Last year, I played a lot at Manchester City and I felt it could happen. When I arrived in Chelsea and had the first contact with Martin Tocalli, the coach of the national team, it was a beautiful moment.

“He asked me if I could fight for this and I told him that his call already filled me with enthusiasm. Sometimes, two good matches in a team like City or Chelsea have more impact than 20 good ones in Malaga, that’s what I experienced.”
