Agustín Federico Marchesín (Spanish pronunciation: [martʃeˈsin]; born 16 March 1988) is an Argentine footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Mexican club América and the Argentina national team.

Club career[edit]


Marchesín was signed by Lanús from Huracán de Tres Arroyos in 2007. He was a non-playing member of the Lanús' squad that won the 2007 Apertura tournament.

On 1 March 2009, Marchesín made his competitive debut in a 2–0 win against Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy. Subsequently, on 29 April, he made his first appearance in an international club competition in a 1–1 draw with Caracas FC. During 2009, he relegated Mauricio Caranta as the first choice goalkeeper, playing in most of the team's games of the Apertura tournament. In 2013, Marchesín won the Copa Sudamericana with Lanús, starting in both matches of the finals against Ponte Preta of Brazil.[2]

Santos Laguna[edit]

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.[3] In his first year at the club, he won the 2015 Clausura[4] and 2015 Campeón de Campeones cup.[5]


On 2 December 2016, it was announced that Santos Laguna had sold Marchesín to Club América.[6]

International career[edit]

Marchesín was the starting goalkeeper for the U21 Argentine national team that finished third at the 2009 Toulon Tournament.[7] On 20 August 2010, Marchesín received his first call for the senior national team for a friendly match against Spain.[8] 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.[9]

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.[10] He was called up to the Argentina squad for the 2015 Copa América after Mariano Andújar suffered a hand injury midway through the tournament.[11]
