Argentine National Team: Alexander Garnacho Joins the List of Players Who Played with Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
With his debut in the Argentine National Team, the young Manchester United attacker, Alexander Garnacho, has now entered the select group of Argentine players who had the opportunity to share the field with two football giants, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Alexander Garnacho made history when he made his debut for the Argentine National Team at just 18 years old. His debut took place against Australia and he became a part of a very exclusive list that includes only ten other Argentine footballers who have played alongside both Messi and Ronaldo.
The talented young attacker, who previously played alongside Ronaldo at Manchester United during the first half of the 2022/23 season, joined Messi to represent Argentina against the Oceanic team at the Workers’ Stadium in Beijing before leaving for Al Nassr.
This achievement puts Garnacho in the company of players like Gabriel Heinze, Carlos Tevez, Fernando Gago, Ezequiel Garay, Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala, Lisandro Martinez, and Gonzalo “Pity” Martinez, who have also had the privilege of playing with both Messi and Ronaldo at some point in their careers.
