Lucas ALARIO called up, more names being rumored


Lucas ALARIO has been called-up to the Argentina National Team.

With Javier MASCHERANO and Gonzalo HIGUAIN both getting yellow cards and suspended for Argentina’s match against Bolivia on Tuesday, Argentina National Team coach Edgardo BAUZA has called-up forward Lucas ALARIO. BAUZA stated in his press conference following Argentina’s 1-0 victory against Chile that they were speaking with River Plate coach Marcelo GALLARDO regarding the call-up. Per several reports from Argentina, ALARIO has now been called-up to the team.

Names being mentioned:

Three other names are rumored to get a call. Ivan MARCONE of Lanus, Jonatan MAIDANA of River Plate and Marias CARUZZO of San Lorenzo are currently being mentioned as possible names to join the team.


  1. No Icardi. …that’s all….Any great forward will be looking like bad one’s due to Bozo’s tactics. …

    Deaf and dumb Bauza …..crap…

  2. Alario? Pretty sure Bozo said if Higuain and Pratto were unavailable, Icardi would get the nod. That lying son of a bitch. I understand Icardi has played a competitive match for Argentina (for like seven minutes) but I’m sure if he really wanted FIFA could make an exception. He should just pull a Camaronesi and play for Italy. It’s ridiculous that a relative unknown Alario is getting called up over Internazionale’s captain. Granted Inter aren’t doing well, but they’d be way worse without Icardi. Then again Argentina has always disrespected Inter players. 2010 for example, benching an in form Milito and Samuel (granted he was hurt) and excluding Cuchu (we could’ve used a midfielder) and Zanetti (could’ve used a fullback too). Icardi isn’t coming to Russia unfortunately 🙁

    • Yeah, he was so pissed at that lineman he didn’t even shake the hand. Verbal abuse was so clear …hopefully, they are not gonna suspend him
