Speaking to the media, Argentina National Team coach Edgardo BAUZA commented on the call-ups of Ezequiel LAVEZZI, Fernando BELLUSCHI and Julio BUFFARINI.
BAUZA also commented about ICARDI’s form and how he watched him score twice for Inter against Torino. Here’s what he had to say:
“LAVEZZI’s call-up was planned with him. He’s working normally, recovered from his injury. He can’t compete in his club because he wasn’t on the list due to his injury but LAVEZZI is one of the leaders of this group and he’s going to help us out. He’s a very important player in the group because of everything he brings.”
“I could make mistakes but I make the decision because of what I analyize and because of what I think. Never has someone on the team complained to me about having problems with a player I have called-up.”
About Fernando BELLUSCHI and Julio BUFFARINI:
“We’ll see if they’ll be starters. It’s going to be a different match as to what we’ve played so far. I know Tite (Brazil’s coach) very well because of my time in Brazil. We’re going to have to have a compact team to stop them between the lines.”
“It’s clear that ICARDI has a chance and he knows it. I was just watching Inter against Torino where he scored two goals. ICARDI knows perfectly well that he could be called-up.”
“We’ll see if BELLUSCHI plays. He’s in great form.”
