Plenty of Argentinians ply their craft outside of Europe. Whether it be in the Chinese Super League, Major League Soccer, Liga MX or in other Latin American leagues, Argentinians scored goals and made an impact all over the world this past weekend.
Former Albiceleste regular and PSG star, Ezequiel Lavezzi has been playing in the Chinese Super League the past few seasons. This season is another productive one for the winger, Lavezzi scored one from the penalty spot in Hebei China Fortune’s 2-0 win over Tianjin Quanjian to surpass the ten-goal mark for the season.
On the other side of the world in Major League Soccer, Argentinians scored in three separate games. Sebastián Blanco scored a goal in the 79th minute as Portland Timbers tried to come back from a 3-1 deficit. His efforts didn’t prove to be enough as Portland Timbers slipped to defeat against Minnesota United.
Chipping away. Blanco scores his seventh goal of the season. #RCTID #MINvPOR pic.twitter.com/psWTaTAzqn
