Finally, and after thinking about it many times, Sebastien Pineau chose to wear the jersey of the peruvian team above that of the Chilean national team. The skilled striker will play with the ‘Bicolor’ in the South American Sub 20 2023 and, in the preview of the championship, he explained the reasons for his decision.
“The reason why I chose the Peruvian team over Chile is because I always want to compete. I found a very good team, which I feel will help me now and in the future,” said the 19-year-old striker for Radio Ovación.
“We are focused on making a good South American. He plays us against world powers in the group, but we are going to compete with them and try to qualify for the World Cup ”, added Sebastien Pineau.
Last Thursday, the Peruvian Under 20 team played a friendly match against Bolivia and the score ended even 1-1. The national goal was scored by Sebastien Pineau.
“I felt good, a little nervous because after a while I was playing a game with the National Team. Thank God the goal was given, especially the tie. Despite being with 9 players, the team reflected attitude, which is always important. It’s a pity that the penalty could not be given (he made a mistake when it was 1-1), but I feel good, happy, ”said the Alianza Lima element.
