Lucas Pratto made its debut in the Netherlands after leaving River Plate and get to loan to Feyenoord. The ‘Bear’ played 70 minutes in his team’s 2-0 victory against him Sparta Rotterdam for the fifteenth day of the Eredivisie. His team is in 3rd place with 32 units, 3 behind Ajax (They drew 2-2 with the guard, PSV). The Argentine Pratto had the opportunity to score in the 30th minute but the stick did not allow it.
A few days ago Pratto arrived in the Netherlands to put on the Feyenoord jersey, on a six-month loan from his River Plate team. On Sunday, the forward was able to make his long-awaited debut and return to play in a European league (he has already played in Norway and Italy). The 32-year-old was seen to be quite active, so much so that he hit the post at 30 ‘and had another clear shot in the second half in a heads-up with the Rotterdam keeper.
The goals of the team led by Dick Advocaat were scored by Lutsharel Geertruida (11 ‘) and Nicolai Jorgensen (94’). Pratto was replaced in the 70th minute, precisely by the scorer of the second goal, the Norwegian Jorgensen. The duel was a classic in the city, and had the Argentine as a starter, while former San Lorenzo, Marcos Senesi, who played the 90 minutes, also played from the beginning.
Colombian Luis Sinisterra also started, and Brazilian Eric Botteghin joined Feyenoord. Pratto said after finishing the match that: «It was a bit of a surprise but the coach in the week when I was able to train with the team said that there were possibilities for me to play. My physical performance tests had gone well, which was the only concern they had, and today it was shown that physically I am 100%«.
Pratto’s comparison between the football of the Netherlands and Argentina
In addition, he threw a striking phrase that leaves Argentine football in a bad way: “The truth is that yesterday I saw some games on television with other teams and it is a league where they try to play and think about attacking, a little different from Argentina, than when you You don’t play in a big team, the others try to defend themselves ”, declared the ‘Bear’, who was not comfortable with his lack of minutes in Marcelo Gallardo’s team.
