Gonzalo HIGUAIN could get the nod ahead of Sergio AGUERO versus Iceland at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Argentina coach Jorge SAMPAOLI looks to have found his starting eleven for his team’s opening match. In place of the injured Manuel LANZINI would be Maxi MEZA and HIGUAIN would start ahead of the Manchester City man. Here is what TyC Sports is reporting to be the rumored eleven:
CABALLERO; MERCADO, OTAMENDI, ROJO, TAGLIAFICO; MASCHERANO, LO CELSO; MEZA, MESSI, DI MARIA; HIGUAIN
That would mean the starting goalkeeper would be Chelsea’s Willy CABALLERO while Manchester United’s Marcos ROJO starts instead of Roma’s Federico FAZIO beside Manchester City’s Nicolas OTAMENDI. In midfield, it would be the same pairing as the one versus Haiti, it’s Javier MASCHERANO with Giovani LO CELSO. Maxi MEZA in for LANZINI with MESSI, DI MARIA and HIGUAIN spearheading the attack.
