  1. Why wouldn’t they select player like Diego Perotti , he should be regular starter instead of di maria…also like always they have selected Icardi just for sake.. surely they will start with aguero or correa …

  2. Really sad and surprised to not see Nacho in there. Papu Gomez is also missing but these aren’t the last set of WCQ so there is plenty of time for players to show their worth.
    Overall list is still good so VAMOS boys.

  3. Nacho is very lank. Perhaps Sampaoli considered him as not right player for warrior game against Ururguay.

  4. I am so nervous and anxiously waiting for thursday… i dont see alot of defenders. im thinking he will using 3 in the back and mache right above (but im assuming)

    Fernandez xxxxxxxxxx banega di maria


    Messi xxxxx xxxx icardixxxxx

  5. Great to see Bustos and especially Benedetto included. Deserved. This is what I think is going to happen:



    Bustos———-Biglia———–Paredes——-Di Maria



    • Great lineup enganche. I would still prefer Augusto Fernandez ahead of biglia. Bustos would support messi better on the right side. My primary worry in attack is the tendency of messi and dybala to get into each other’s way. Hope sampaoli knows how to tactically discipline them not to do that. Vamos argentina
