Several historic figures from the Argentina National Team could be returning to the squad for next month’s matches.
Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI has no time to waste following Argentin’s matches from this week. The manager will have to announce his lost of players for next month’s friendly matches against Egypt and Brazil next Friday, on the 21st of September.
Per a report by TyC Sports, there are a few names from times past which could be included for the two games. The players rumored to be in the list are the following:
Lionel MESSI, Sergio AGUERO, Angel DI MARIA, Nicolas OTAMENDI, Eduardo SALVIO and Gabriel MERCADO.
In the cases of Gabriel MERCADO and Eduardo SALVIO, they were both initially in SCALONI’s list but had to pull out due to injury.
However, the list should include many of the players which were recently part of the United States tour. TyC are reporting that Gonzalo MARTINEZ and Franco CERVI left a good impression on SCALONI while Lautaro MARTINEZ (initially in the squad but left because of an injury) and Mauro ICARDI will be there next month. This would likely mean that no Gonzalo HIGUAIN in the list.
Argentina will play Egypt on October 11 before playing Brazil on October 16 in Saudi Arabia.
