Argentina National Team coach Jorge SAMPAOLI has reportedly told both Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Paulo DYBALA that they will make the World Cup squad.
Jorge SAMPAOLI, who is presently on his European trip, met with Juventus duo Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Paulo DYBALA on Wednesday night. Per a report by TyC Sports, SAMPAOLI confirmed to HIGUAIN that he will have a spot in the squad for the World Cup.
However, HIGUAIN isn’t the only one who’s spot is reportedly confirmed. Per a separate report from Manuel OLIVARI of DirecTV and TNT Sports, SAMPAOLI told DYBALA that unless something weird happens, he will also make the squad of 23 for the World Cup.
Sampaoli le comunicó a Dybala que, salvo algo raro, va a estar dentro de la lista de 23 para Rusia

It’s being rumored that the matches against Italy and Spain are what made SAMPAOLI fully change his mind regarding DYBALA’s inclusion into the Argentina team.
Depending on if you’re a fan of both players or only one of them, this news can be great or bitter sweet.
