Jorge SAMPAOLI has tested a three more Argentina line-ups in training on Tuesday.
While we posted a first rumored line-up earlier today, SAMPAOLI has gone ahead and tested a second, third and even a fourth starting eleven on Tuesday afternoon. These three are slightly different, with the big changes coming in attack. If the first one had ICARDI up front, the other three had Boca man BENEDETTO as the number 9 in attack.
