Nottingham Forest star Nico Domínguez has admitted he harbours hopes of playing for Argentina at the Copa America this summer as he continues to impress in the Premier League.

The midfielder has been speaking to DSports Radio about life at Nottingham Forest, his hopes for Argentina and what the future may hold for him.

The 25-year-old has been with Nottingham Forest since a €10m move from Bologna in September last year and has been a key player ever since, establishing himself in the middle of the park under Steve Cooper and Nuno Espirito Santo.

While he’s a regular for Nottingham Forest, though, he has yet to establish himself with the Argentina national team, where the abundance of available talent means space in the squad is hard to come by.

He’s not made an appearance for his country since a four-minute spell in a 0-0 with Brazil in November 2021, meaning he’s missed out on being a part of their recent successes.

It seems, though, he is hoping that Premier League experience with Nottingham Forest can put him back in contention ahead of the Copa America this summer.

“You have to work here, continue growing as a footballer,” Ole report him saying.

“It is difficult to be in the Argentine National Team because of the history and the players there are today. The enthusiasm is always there. I try to work day by day to continue growing as a player in a very competitive like the Premier League.

“The Premier League gave me the intensity in the game that all top-level matches have. The illusion of being in the Copa América is always there.”
