No Name of Juventus Attacker At New Zealand’s Argentine National Team Skuat
The Argentine football federation (AFA) has called Mauro Icardi on their latest senior squad list. However, the name of senior striker Gonzalo Higuain is not listed in the squad prepared for the World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Venezuela later this month and next month.
Icardi is one of the new faces called by Jorge Sampaoli last May in the Argentina squad. Now, former Sevilla coach was still calling Icardi.
In addition the new owner number 10 at Juventus, Paulo Dybala also called by Sampaoli to his squad.
Icardi and Dybala joined in a squad that also filled new AC Milan player, Lucas Biglia. However, for the case of Biglia, the 31-year-old is likely to be dropped soon after suffering a thigh injury.
Argentina is currently in fifth position of South American zone World Cup qualifying. The La Albiceleste squad will face Uruguay on 31 August in Montevideo. Then host Venezuela for Buenos Aires on 5 September. (Source: Italian Fottball)
