Rumors are already circulating as to which names will be called to the Argentina team for next month’s friendly matches.
Newly crowned COTIF U20 champions Lionel SCALONI and Pablo AIMAR have a lot of work to do with the senior Argentina squad. Their first test will be in September against Guatemala and Colombia in a set of friendly matches to be contested in the United States. For many, this is seen not only as a general fresh start but as an entirely new team which is to be constructed for the future.
Several names are already being rumored to be selected for the squad. The Inter attacking duo of Lautaro MARTINEZ and Mauro ICARDI are rumored to both not only get called-up but would be set to start. Not only those two but Paulo DYBALA, Giovani LO CELSO and goalkeeper Franco ARMANI.
Reunión en AFA: Scaloni y Aimar tienen en la cabeza que Lautaro Martínez e Icardi sean los delanteros titulares en los amistosos de septiembre. Que dybala también lo sea igual que Lo Celso y Armani. Están averiguando Cómo está Romero de su lesión. Hay 45 futbolistas en borrador

Per Hernan CASTILLO, the two coaches are also looking at Sergio ROMERO and how he is following his injury.
