After making a decision to play for Armenian national team Lucas Zelarayán spoke to the FFA official site.


"I have made a very important decision for me - to play for Armenian national team. It wasn't a decision made in one day, it was a well-thought step. I have spoken to the FFA president Armen Melikbekyan and the national team head coach Joaquin Caparros during the last year. They represented the program of the federation to me.


I knew about my Armenian roots, but I haven't had close relations with Armenian community in Argentina. That's why I needed a time to make this important decision. After discussing everythinh with my family in September I made a decision to join Armenian national team. Now I am excited about it. I am aware of the big goals this team wants to achieve and I am ready to do my best to make this happen. I am happy to join Armenian national team during this important period and I hope to have new achievement with the national team."
