    If you looking for Lavezzi type of player in NT EDuardo Salvio is the one IMO. If Messi is out for upcoming qualifiers games new coach should take DYbala of course and Salvio who once played in NT as LF. I saw some friendlies of preseason Benfica and after long injury he looks to be in great shape.

    • Would you start him ahead of Gaitan and Lamela, assuming those two are still with NT though? I saw Salvio in action a few times for Benfica, fast and direct winger, could be an asset I guess.

    CORREA: “Atletico were calling me every day to come back. But I stayed here. I’d given word I’d play in Olympics. My family is proud of me”

    “I have been told I am crazy to come here (for Olympics) now, but for me the crazy thing would have been to stay away.”

    “I think those who do not want to be called up by the Argentina national team are crazy,”
