As the Copa America kicked off last night, many would have preferred Mauro Zarate to be a part of the Argentinean side trying to impress in front of the home crowd.
The Lazio player was never picked for the Argentinean national side, but yet he had plenty of people following him closely yesterday evening as Mauro Zarate and Natalie Weber, accompanied by family and friends, became husband and wife in a civil ceremony in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
According to reports from people close to the couple, a more formal church ceremony will take place next year as this ceremony manifested their love for each other as the couple is awaiting a child.
Mauro Zarate will soon be the father of a son as Natalie Weber is believed to be pregnant.
Unfortunately enough for the couple, there is no honeymoon planned this summer.
Mauro Zarate and Natalie Weber are believed to be back in Rome early next week, in order to settle in before Zarate undergoes the traditional pre-season medical and later is off to Auronzo di Cadore with the rest of the team.
This year however, he is not leaving a lonely Natalie behind as the child is believed to be born in around seven months.
Lazioland congratulates the couple and wish them a happy marriage and a great future together.
