Representatives from Málaga CF and CA San Lorenzo de Almagro; League ambassador, José Luis Astiazarán; and representatives from the organising companies, Fénix Entertainment Group and Direct TV got together to exchange gifts ahead of the historic Copa EuroAmericana clash between two Clubs from each side of the Atlantic.

Málaga CF’s Argentine-born Fernando Tissone is enjoying an intense few days in Buenos Aires along with his compatriot, Marcos Angeleri: “It’s very special for us to come to our country and see our families and friends. We’ve only got a few days to make the most of it, as it’s important that we continue to improve over the pre-season in order to start the League well and perform at our best in the upcoming matches.”

The ‘Malaguistas’ kicked off their second day in Argentina with a training session at the ground of local team, Deportivo Riestra, based close to the Nuevo Gasómetro ground. Despite clouds and a drop in temperature, it remained pleasant in Buenos Aires considering it is currently winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Spanish-Brazilian striker scored his debut goal for the Blue and Whites against Deportivo Cali: “I’m thrilled. It’s always important for a striker to score goals. It was my first and I’m very happy. It was a shame we lost, but I think the team is on the right track,” affirms the striker.

The Blue and Whites left Cali airport on Monday at 2:30 p.m. local time (9:30 p.m. in Spain) for Buenos Aires, with a stop in Bogotá, for the second part of the Liga World Challenge tour.
