Giovanni SIMEONE likely to replace Mauro ICARDI in Argentina team


Reports are emerging that Inter captain Mauro ICARDI will not take part in Argentina’s matches and that Giovani SIMEONE will likely get the nod.

As we have reported the last few days, both Mauro ICARDI and Lautaro MARTINEZ are carrying knocks and aren’t fully fit. Reports are currently coming out that ICARDI will not be fit enough to take part in any of Argentina’s two friendly matches (against Guatemala and Colombia).

However, ICARDI is expected to remain with the rest of the team in hopes that he could eventually be good enough to get some minutes in the second match on Tuesday against Colombia.

The beneficiary in all of this is rumored to be Giovani SIMEONE. The Fiorentina striker is rumored to be the one to replace the Inter number 9 in the Argentina setup.


  1. Someone said the other day that Simeone is a better player than Icardi. Is he??? I have no opinion on that one. That said, Icardi is clearly more established.

  2. team from training session:

    Gerónimo Rulli; Fabricio Bustos, Germán Pezzella, Ramiro Funes Mori, Nicolás Tagliafico; Giovani Lo Celso, Leandro Paredes, Exequiel Palacios; Cristian Pavón, Giovanni Simeone y Gonzalo Martínez.
