The Argentina team trained for the last time ahead of their Round of 16 clash against France on Saturday.
Argentina coach Jorge SAMPAOLI reportedly trained with 12 players on Friday and not just 11 for the match. It was a repeat 11 of the one’s who started against Nigeria but the 12th player was Cristian PAVON. There are increasing reports that PAVON could start on that right side with MESSI as the false nine.
Here’s the twelve which were used in training:
ARMANI; TAGLIAFICO, ROJO, OTAMENDI, MERCADO; BANEGA, MASCHERANO, Enzo PEREZ; PAVON or HIGUAIN, MESSI, DI MARIA
Enzo PEREZ has fully recovered from his muscular fatigue.
