Eduardo SALVIO and Gabriel MERCADO are both officially out of the Argentina squad for this month’s matches with Renzo SARAVIA called as a replacement.
The two players which were supposed to occupy the right back position have had to widthdraw from the Argentina team due to injuries and have been replaced by Racing Club’s Renzo SARAVIA. Interim Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI will now be able to count on three full backs for the matches against Guatemala and Colombia. Those three being Fabricio BUSTOS, Leonel DI PLACIDO and now Renzo SARAVIA.
For Gabriel MERCADO, he has reportedly suffered a fracture in his right arm. In Eduardo SALVIO’s case, a blow in his ankle will keep him out of the two matches. Both players were part of Argentina’s squad during the World Cup with Gabriel MERCADO scoring in the match against France.
