Gabriel MERCADO will not take part in Argentina’s upcoming tour of Russia after suffering an injury to his right hamstring.
His club, Sevilla have just confirmed this stating that he will not take part in the weekend’s clash against Barcelona. Jorge SAMPAOLI has decided to call upon Emanuel MAMMANA of Zenit St. Petersburg as the replacement. MAMMANA was initially named as one of the reserves when the squad’s was announced last week. His last appearance for Argentina was in the 6-0 win over Singapore back in June.
For MAMMANA, it means little travelling as he is based in Russia and both friendly matches will be held in that country.
