A Uruguayan who eliminated the ‘U’ and an Argentine top scorer on the list led by Messi: the nationalized ones of Peru’s possible rivals

World football demands to have the best in your eleven and the national teams are no exception. lived it the peruvian national team hosting Gianluca Lapadula, born in Italy, and the teams that will play the Asian playoff and then face Bicolor: Australia and the United Arab Emirates.

In recent days, Australia coach Arnold assured that he does not rule out the possibility of summoning Jason Cummings, a Central Coast striker who was born in Scotland but of an Australian mother, so he can act for the ‘Socceroos’.

Cummings, 26, has played in Scottish and English football. In fact, before coming to Central Coast he played for Dundee FC in Scotland, scoring 14 goals in 36 games in the Scottish league. , without a doubt a great appearance that the Australians hope to take advantage of in selecting him.

“I would love to be there. Of course I would love to be there, it would be a dream,” Cummings told the Australian press.

Uruguayan who beat the U

But he is not the only ‘naturalized’ in Australia. The ‘Socceroos’ already have several players born outside their borders in their ranks. The well-known Martín Boyle (Scotland), who played in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, has been joined in recent years by the youths who started their careers in the oceanic country Denis Genreau (France), James Jeggo (Austria) and Awer Mabil (Sudan), in addition to Fran Karacic, who played in the Croatian Under 21 and since 2021 plays for Australia.

However, the most curious case is that of the Uruguayan Bruno Fornaroli. The native of the eastern South American country was nationalized this year and last March he debuted with the ‘Socceroos’ at the end of the Qualifiers. The beginnings of Fornaroli’s career led him to wear the Celeste of Uruguay in the South American Sub 17 of Bolivia in 2003 -it did not cross with Peru-, and then he was no longer taken into account for the Sub 20 or older, despite that in 2008 was sold to Sampdoria of Italy.

Before traveling to Europe, he faced Cienciano and Bolognesi for the 2008 Libertadores, marking the tacneños in the duel played in the city in the south of the country. A year later, he started against Universitario.

In 2009 he played in San Lorenzo -on loan from Sampdoria- he was again measured against a Peruvian and was part of what was the hard elimination of Universitario in that edition of the Cup. With the ‘Cuervos’ he was present in the first time of the 2-0 Argentine victory that left the creams out of the tournament -San Luis of Mexico surpassed it on goal difference when tying in the last minute with Libertad-.

It was not a good match for Fornaroli, who was replaced for the second half by Bergessio. But he does appear in the photo of Calheira’s own goal, celebrating the goal with none other than Hernán Peirone, an Argentine who later came to Alianza Lima.

The Argentine striker

In the United Arab Emirates the story is not very different. Those from the Middle East have two ‘outsiders’ in their ranks: the Brazilian Caio Canedo and the Argentine Sebastián Tagliabúe, both summoned by Rodolfo Arruabarrena at the end of the Asian Qualifiers.

Caio Canedo arrived in the Emirates in 2014 and has played for the Emirati team since 2020 and scored 3 goals in 12 Qualifying games. He in total he has 6 in 20 games.

But it is the Argentine Tagliabúe who draws attention, since since he arrived in the Emirates, in 2013, he has managed to become the top foreign scorer in the local tournament in November last year.

But what is striking about Tagliabúe is that he appears in the top positions of active Argentine scorers. In January of this year, this list was made in the Argentine press: Messi leads with 758 goals at that time, followed by Gonzalo Higuaín with 350 and Sebastián appears there with 325, surpassing Tevez’s 322.

Tagliabúe made minors in Boca and River Plate and made his professional debut in the Club Colegiales de Primera B in 2003. He went through soccer in Chile and Colombia until arriving in Arabia in 2010. Three years later he arrived at Al Wahda in the Emirates where he was for seven seasons before joining Al Nasr.
