Callens returns to the National team
The central defender of New York City FC, Alexander Callens, returns to have another opportunity to be shown internationally with the selection of Peru, after this Friday confirmed his presence in the call of Ricardo Gareca for the friendlies against Paraguay and El Savior.
As a curious fact, the two calls that the southpaw has received since he is in MLS have been for confrontations in the United States. This time before a South American team and another Central American, while in October 2018 was in the game against the host team.
"I'm Happy, very happy," said the Peruvian on his call this Friday. "I always want to represent my country and now I have this opportunity and I'm looking forward to meeting my teammates, but of course, first I'm here," he said, referring to the fact that he must first fulfill commitments with NYCFC before reporting to the national team.
