In the World Cup Qualifiers game of Argentina against Paraguay, on February 26, Andres Nocioni will be present in the Carlos Guerrero Arena to see his national team “No. 13” jersey getting retired.

Chapu, who retired last June as a Real Madrid player, played 121 official games with the national team, scoring 1364 points.

Nocioni won Olympic Gold medal in 2004 and is third among the players with more games, behind Luis Scola and Leonardo Gutierrez.

The number 13 will no longer be able to be used by any other player, same with number 5, which was worn by Manu Ginobili.
