Inter Milan Midfielder Matias Vecino is very much excited at the prospect of representing his national team after it was confirmed that he has been included in the 35-man preliminary squad released by the country’s head coach Oscar Tabarez.

Tabarez recently handed a list of 35 players across Europe and beyond who he deemed fit to represent the country on the international level and he has revealed how pleased he is with his list. The list was still prepared and released despite the fact that the South American World Cup Qualifying fixture ls were postponed indefinitely.

Vecino makes it to the lost even though he is yet to make any appearance for club side Inter Milan so far this season. He has now been included in the team that will be facing Argentina and Bolivia when the fixture dates get confirmed later this month.

The matches were supposed to be played on the 26th and 30th of March respectively, but with the postponement, new dates have not yet been announced, meaning that they would have to wait for the CONMEBOL and FIFA to hold a meeting and decide when it would be best suitable to play the matches.

The former Fiorentina man last played in a competitive game last year July following a knee surgery he underwent that has kept him on the sidelines since then. However, he has been working hard on his rehabilitation process and is making his comeback gradually after making it to the Inter Milan bench in recent games.

Vecino said he is delighted that he was called up by Oscar Tabarez, while he also indicated that he knows how hard it must have been for the coach to go ahead and pick him even though he has not played any football match since last year. He then added that he would make sure he proves to Tabarez that he made the right choice by including him in the 35-man shortlist.
