This would mean that one of Franco ARMANI or Willy CABALLERO will take over as the starting goalkeeper. Nahuel GUZMAN who made the list of 35 could possibly be called-up as the replacement but comments made by GUZMAN’s father after SAMPAOLI had left his son out of the World Cup squad could make things interesting.
As it stands Nahuel Guzmán, as the squad's fourth goalkeeper, would be likely to step up. His father posted this rather disparaging image of Sampaoli on Facebook yesterday with a rant over the decision to cut his son pic.twitter.com/jhUMinmEKV
