Emiliano INSUA replaces Lucas BIGLIA in Argentina team


Emiliano INSUA has replaced Lucas BIGLIA in the Argentina team.

Lucas BIGLIA has picked up an injury and is out of Argentina’s matches later this month. As Argentina National Team coach Jorge SAMPAOLI prepares for this month’s friendly matches against Nigeria and Russia, he’ll be unable to count on AC Milan’s Lucas BIGLIA who has a knock in his leg. SAMPAOLI has decided not to waste any time and has already called-up former Liverpool man Emiliano INSUA to the squad.

INSUA, now 28 years old and currently with Bundesliga club Stuttgart, last played for Argentina in 2011 when Sergio BATISTA was in charge in the team’s 2-1 loss to Poland.


  1. Is there any chance for lo celso to be selected in the Team? He is an exciting talent like dembele or mbappe for France or Jesus for Brazil .Right me please if I am wrong .

  2. Cristian Pavon gets his first NT call up. Very very happy. Not sure though about Belluschi, mainly becos of his age and fitness level.

    There were goals for Benega, Facundo Fereyra, Otamendi and Aguero with goals for their teams. All ended up winning their matches.
    Messi had a frustrating match, was tightly marked and took a few knocks. Dybala was anonymous yet again in Europe. He has to raise his standard at this level.

    • Btw, if there’s one person I think Sampoali should call up if fully fit is Lautaro Martinez. The kid is class. And it’s not risky, considering whichever centre frwards you chose don’t score for the NT. So, it’s worth the gamble. You think of kids like Gaby Jesus for Brazil, and even younger guys like Dembele, Mbappe and Rashford play for their countries, why shouldn’t we try Martinez?

  3. Sampoli can go ——–
    Marcado–Mascarano–otamendi –insua

  4. Racing is too predictable in general, not enough creativity in this team, btw bad luck with the 2 woodworks from Lautaro Martinez, the guy will be something special. His every touch is fckin dangerous in the attacking zone. Independiente will rip apart this modest paraguayian team

  5. This night easy task to make semis of Copa Sudamericana for Independiente and much more though for their long-time rival Racing – if want to see passion of Avellaneda derby in semifinal.

    • Lautaro Martinez a real danger man (i see him a more skillful verson of Icardi, not a bad dribbler from a CF too) Zaracho good, everybody shoots from 25-30m, maybe 1:0 and penalties

  6. Not this crap again…..he needs his rest and somebody should tell Barcelona the same!
    A friendly is meaningless other than the money and the figuring out what works best.
    LET’S see Dybala in Messi’s spot.
