Agustín Federico Marchesín (Spanish pronunciation: [maɾtʃeˈsin]; born 16 March 1988) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Mexican club América and the Argentina national team.
On 1 March 2009, Marchesín made his competitive debut in a 2–0 win against Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy. On 29 April, he made his first appearance in the Copa Libertadores, a 1–1 draw against Caracas FC. That year, he relegated Mauricio Caranta to the bench and established himself as first-choice goalkeeper, playing in most of Lanús’ games of the Apertura tournament.
In December 2014, Marchesín, along with Lanús teammate Diego González, was sold to Mexican side Santos Laguna as a replacement for retiring goalkeeper Oswaldo Sánchez. In his first year at the club, he won the 2015 Clausura and 2015 Campeón de Campeones cup.
Marchesín was the starting goalkeeper for the U21 Argentine national team that finished third at the 2009 Toulon Tournament. On 20 August 2010, Marchesín received his first call for the senior national team for a friendly match against Spain. Marchesín got his first cap for Argentina in a friendly match against Venezuela as a half-time substitute on 16 March 2011, with Argentina winning the match 4–1.
In September 2014, Marchesín received his first call-up in more than four years when Gerardo Martino called him up to the Argentina squad for the friendly matches against Brazil and Hong Kong, playing against the latter and earning his second cap. He was called up to the Argentina squad for the 2015 Copa América after Mariano Andújar suffered a hand injury midway through the tournament.
On 15 September 2017, Marchesín received his first call up under Jorge Sampaoli for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualification matches against Peru and Ecuador on 2 and 5 October. On 14 November, Marchesín made his first start for the national team in a 4–2 friendly loss to Nigeria.
