River’s match this Thursday against Nacional of Uruguay, except for some surprises, will not have Agustín Sant’Anna in the plans on the right side, neither as an option to be a starter nor to enter in the second half. The former Defensa y Justicia footballer today is behind Andrés Herrera and Sebastián Boselli in the position.

Sant’Anna’s mysterious little participation in River

The case of Agustín Sant’Anna in River does not cease to attract attention because he came as the great hope of a position that could not be filled in the best way according to the contemplation of the fans. It was a solution for Santiago Simón’s injury that he suffered in the middle of preseason and at that time Sebastián Boselli was also out due to the call to the Pre-Olympic with Uruguay.

Despite these expectations, the 26-year-old Uruguayan defender has not played for 45 days when he was present in the Superclásico against Boca at the Monumental Stadium. His first impressions had been good in previous games but the mistake in marking against his longtime rival seems to have marked him on the squad.

In total he played 151 minutes spread over those five games. The rivals he faced were Deportivo Riestra, Atlético Tucumán, Banfield, Boca and Excursionistas.
