Sergio Torres performed the stanzas of the National Anthem on Thursday night in the preview of what was the clash between Argentina and Bolivia for the Qualifiers towards the World Cup in Qatar.

The 55-year-old artist has a vast career in the world of cumbia in Santa Fe and was the first from Santa Fe to perform at Luna Park.

“Singing the Anthem has been postponed for a long time, I am always in my sights, but for one thing or another I was never able to sing it,” Torres revealed to Chain 3.

“The players were very happy that I was the one who played him,” he added.

“If you ask me to tell you in words, I don’t know how to describe the moment. It was impressive,” he insisted.

In addition, he said that his “legs shook” when he heard the audience chanting with him. “In my 42-year career, this is the first time this has happened to me,” he said.
