Who is Lorenzo Luchino, the young Sevilla goalkeeper who will play for Argentina in the South American Sub 17


The goalkeeper, category 2006, was born in Córdoba and for a few years he has been living in Europe with his family

The squad list of the Argentine Under 17 National Team was released. Diego Placente, coach of the youth team, presented the list of 23 players who will have the mission of representing the Albiceleste team in the South American Cup.

Logically, and as they are taking their first steps, the footballers' surnames are unknown.

However, the case of

Lorenzo Luchino, Sevilla B goalkeeper, is very particular.

The goalkeeper, just turned 17, is the only one of those called up who works in a foreign club.

Although it is increasingly common for there to be Argentine players (or of Argentine descent) playing in European clubs, what is not so common is that they are summoned to the smallest youth categories.

Lorenzo Luchino, category 2006, was born in Córdoba, more precisely in Rio Cuarto, and for a few years he has been living in Europe with his family.

His first steps were Estudiantes de Río Cuarto, but

for work reasons his parents decided to go to work abroad.

The place chosen to live and face a new life was Spain and, with the transfer to those directions, Luchino's formation below the three sticks continued there.

In the first instance, CD Puerto Malagueño was his first club, although since mid-2022 he made the leap to Sevilla B.

His calls to the youth teams -he had already been summoned in February to train and play some friendlies- are due to

the scouting network that is carried out by Bernardo Romeo

and the different technicians in charge of the training categories.

It should be noted that

he rejected the opportunity to be called up for the Spanish National Team


When it comes to delving into his style and characteristics under the three sticks, his great size can be highlighted.

At 17 years old, he already measures 1.90, this allows him to have a great passing game and a great command of the area.

In addition, he has a good footwork, a very important aspect in the game that he proposes these days.

As if that were not enough, he has already had friction with the Sevilla first team.

Since he has participated in some training sessions during Jorge Sampaoli's cycle, who today walks a tightrope and many already see him outside the institution.

Their next challenge will be the South American Sub 17, where Argentina will be part of Group B and will compete against Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Venezuela for a ticket to the final round.

Undoubtedly, it will be a project to follow and his performance should be taken into account, both with the Albiceleste shirt and in Sevilla B, for the future.

Benjamin Garré, the antecedent

The 22-year-old striker, grandson of Oscar Garré, world champion with the Argentine National Team in 1986, is the last antecedent of an Argentine player who participated in a South American Sub 17 playing for a European club.

It was in the youth tournament that took place in Chile, in 2017. At that time, the current Krylia Sovetov Samara player from Russia had emigrated to Manchester City from Vélez Sarsfield.

His departure from the Liniers club was controversial, since, as he used parental authority, Fortín did not receive any financial compensation.

Benjamín Garré used the 10 during the South American Sub 17 tournament held in Chile in 2017.

That Selection, which was directed by Miguel Ángel Micó, did not have the best results.

He was left out in the group stage, product of 3 defeats and 1 victory.

Garré played all 4 games and couldn't score any goals.
