Argentina is expected to play a friendly match later this month.
One of Jorge SAMPAOLI’s demands when he first took over as the Argentina National Team coach was to be able to play some matches involving domestic based players. Just over a month into his reign as coach and it looks like SAMPAOLI is about to get his wish.
Jorge SAMPAOLI today met with AFA president Claudio TAPIA regarding the situation and per reports, it appears as though a preliminary list of players will be announced in the next few hours. The list is expected to contain domestic based players with the team playing on July 20 against either Paraguay or Ecuador.
This match would be before Argentina’s upcoming World Cup Qualifier against Uruguay on August 30 in Montevideo.
