At 28 and now a French citizen, Walter Benitez has never been selected by Argentina, a regret he has mentioned in the past. “I have been in France long enough to obtain nationality and, as I have not played with the Argentina selection, I can always be called by France. I do not close the door to anyone, but I am Argentinian and I would like to play with the selection of my country. I played with the U20s but I was not at the Olympics at the time, because I wanted to be. It remains one of my goals, but to date it has not happened. In France, they know that, as Argentina did not call me, I can play with them peacefully. ”
