Mauro ICARDI scored for Inter in their 2-1 win against Tottenham in the Champions League.
It was his first ever match in Europe’s premier club competition and Mauro ICARDI delivered with a fantastic goal. Tottenham were leading 1-0 at the San Siro through a goal by Christian ERIKSEN. With five minutes from time, ICARDI received the ball outside of the area and with a volley beat the goalkeeper and drew Inter level.

Late in injury time, Matias VECINO gave Inter the lead to down Mauricio POCHETTINO’s men. Erik LAMELA started the match for Tottenham. Lautaro MARTINEZ did not play for Inter.
Why it’s between Aguero – Icardi? I think Lautaro Martinez will be more usefull for Argentina than Both Icardi and Aguero.
first start to play and score goals, tons of goals
He really have not to score tons of goals to be already usefull for Argentina. If talent is there goal will comes both club and NT and we may give him credit of confidence and let him start in upcoming friendlies. Some our strikers are scoring tons of goals in club while in NT looks often so helpless. On the other hand players like Palacios. To be honest he didn’t shined in River before being called up. He emerged in A team april/may, then was good but didn’t yet his full potentiall. Still someone saw enough potentiall in him to take him already to NT and we see it’s good move. We need coach with vision more than only someone who will depend on best statistics.
some mundo followers like star names like icardi
Yeah aguero is the best strike Argentina have no one can deny that
Whichever reason all those manager never took full advantage of him
Instead they mainly focus Messi… but aguero has been under used
For previous managers.. again I don’t get it this boy lautro martinez
People giving him too much hype already … please let us wait for him
We already started overriting our players like english press do to
thier players… The only strike I can think of after kun aguero
Is gio simeone so far due to his hard working willing to sacrifice
For his teammates… lautro martinez still jury out for him
let Lautaro come back from injury and find his spot in inter then he will be considered, Gio simeone is Florentina main striker and only reliable after Aguero Icardi
So many people making ridiculous comparisons between our strikers..
Kun is still at an elite level (if healthy). He is the most complete striker we have, he gets involved in build up, can dribble, can shoot, is cold blooded under pressure (huge!) And for his size is quite strong and decent in the air. Its ridiculous to write him off, he should be in the squad until minimum the next copa.. not to mention his relationship with Messi, which will be a factor on his return. If having Messi means having Kun, lets do it.
Comparing Icardi to players like Kun or Dybala etc is silly. Icardi is the closest thing to Batistuta we have had in a loooong time. Icardi is like Klose.. he is a pure #9 target man and a poacher. He has incredible finishing ability from crosses and has stature. Judging him because he doesnt build up (like say kun or higuain) misses the point completely. Icardi is twice as good the target man as anyone else we have, but he is only useful if he gets service, if he gets the minimal and shitty crosses he got last friendly.. same way Higuain got close to zero service the past 4 years.. having a #9 small box poacher will never work. These players need service, Higuain was breaking records at Napoli because every single pocession resulted on a cross at his feet. Not so with Argentina.. we try to dribble and pass our way into the goal.. over and over.
I think Icardi should be starting and we should have at minimum 1 good crossing wing player (a dani alves type) and a good central midfielder that can feed him through balls (paredes, locelso, messi, etc). So far Pavon seems to be the one with the instinct to put that cross in.. they need more time together.
Out of all the new potential, Lautaro has me the most exited. He is as good a poacher as Icardi, while also having physical tenacity and the ability to build up play. If we dont play with crossing wingers, we should start him up top.
#9s = Icardi, Kun, (Lautaro)
Supporting strikers \ playmaker = Messi, Dybala, Lautaro.
We have a stacked forward lineup, as always.. what we need is a functional defence and midfield. You dont win tournaments with forwards only.
We have a lot of new youth filling those voids we had.. players like Locelso, Paredes, Perreira, Palacios, Lanzini etc are the future.. once we get that central core humming, any of our forwards will score for fun.
Forgot to add Lamela.. I still think he is key. Right now, my lineup for copa:
…………. icardi ……….
Icardi should be our super sub.
In my opinion using him considering his lack of service to team play is problematic for Argentina nt.
In Copa we should play Aguero, Messi & one new gen guy in forward. Icardi should be the super sub to find winners.
Aguero this , Aguero that. The man hasn’t played an entire season for over a half a decade. And we all know what he brings/brought to the national team. His time is over. Add to that City looks better without him as a team. More fluidity and good football.
And no more Otamendis, Banegas, Salvios and the Musacchios. They offer nothing to the national team. A bunch of overrated nobodys.
Some here consider Otamendi – worldclass. Really??! The guy is unreliable and accident prone. The only way he survived last season without much of a scare was because of the fullbacks , Walker in particular and his centre back partners. Now that Laporte has adapted to the premier league he has become the backup which is what he is.
Musacchio is another Burdisso. Highly overrated!
Aguero is the best striker in the world accept or go to hell
Say that to Cristiano, Firmino and Suarez(idk if he’s in form or not)!
Nice joke that mancity looks better without aguero, i think you have never watched mancity game. Aguero is still best striker in the world.
What did icardi do in the match except that goal just standing in the box and taking sunbath in the night.
I agree with other parts. But aguero is still by far the best forward Argentina got after GOAT.
Without comparisons to Icardi, Aguero will struggle to be a top 5 goal scorer in the Pl this season. With the chances he has had this season he should have scored at least 8 or 9 goals. A world class Striker playing for City should be scoring 50 goals a season easily. And Aguero for Nt is as good as rotting Sh**.
LOL, how many accounts do you have Gonzalo?
3,08 goals is his xG in this season, dont lie! Icardi 0,72 and 0 goal.
You should be a astrologer sergio you can predict future that aguero will not be in top 5 pl scorer.
Then you would be knowing 2019 copa america tell us also.
THat comes from troll of this site, who depreciate all Argentina youngsters and already is proven to be wrong predicting decline of Argenitna resources.
I don’t need second account to say always what I think
I think he is talking about leicester city.
just tell me 5striker name apart from kane and Aguero in EPL 😂
And what kane and salah is doing this season?aAtleast Kun scoring and assisting goals .
Mancester city looks completely lost and goalless without Kun aguero.
Which city game do you want pal?
Yap without aguero they got beaten in champions league last night..
a great ending yesterday. few thoughts
– icardi was clearly having an anonymous match & then the moment of brilliance changed it all. a lighter version of Ronaldo for sure.
– having said that for icardi to be successful in NT , he will need a good crosser from the wings. Its critical that we have some good crossers identified & they should work in tandem with Icardi.
– i still rate aguero way higher than icardi. Apart from the brilliance – aguero also contributes in the build up & the chemistry with other attackers. But Aguero at the best expires with Copa 19. So the future of NT is clearly dependent on how well Icardi & Dybala sync in.
– Simeone has great work rate . But i think he is not there at the highest level. He would be a good useful backup striker & surely part of our 23. But Simeone cant be our lynchpin if we want to be world beaters
No disrespect mate I saw enough Icardi
He is not what Argentina need…
I have hight hopes for
lautro Martinez and gio simoene
To be our main strikes for come
Years if the both preform highest level
I have my doubts on icardi too. No question on his finishing, but his work rate and involvement is minimal.
On the other hand, Gio Simeone always gives 110%. He gives the impression that he will only get better with age. Icardi has a lot to learn from Simeone’s attitude.
I have not seen lautaro much. Hoping he comes out strong . disappointing early injuries has kept him off the friendlies & Inter matches. Looking forward. But surely Aguero is needed for Copa 2019.
Agree with everything.
Simeone leaves a lot to be desired. Hes short and small so he cant hold the ball well or bully defenders. He rather slow and doesn’t have the pace of Aguero so he’s unable to be defenders. Arially, he’s ok but Icardi (even Higuain) is much better. I really cant see this guy leading the NT and striking fear in opponents. Guys like Aguero and Icardi can change games on their own, simeone aint that guy for now. Neither is Alario. Our striker choices are a bit worrisome.
You mean lautro Martinez…
Gio simeone is not short…
However kun aguero is the best strike Argentina have
Rodrigo depaul is a great crosser and I said previously that he’d be quite useful for when icardi is playing. Paredes is another great crosser and with those 2 Icardi could get the service that he didn’t in the Colombia match.
Aguero is the best striker Argentina has, infact he might be the best striker in world football period but he’s injured yet again and may not feature tomoro with mancity so he’s not exactly over his injury woes.
The good news is that Argentina has a variety of strikers; the creative ones like Dybala, the physical/combative kind like Simeone and the physical-creative kind like Lautaro. Lets not forget that Lamela can do some serious damage when playing upfront (remember his days at Roma), but for a striker to succeed they need a creative midfield behind them and hopefully Scaloni will get a chance to do that.
hoping to see DePaul, parades , pavon & even Bustos excel on the crossing department. That is mandatory for Icardi to be successful with NT. Also explains why he has looked so dull in the NT colors till now.
Many are criticising icardi did nothing till 84min, Cr7 also did nothing until score but icardi is born winner
He won nothing so far…because CR7 is only a great poacher too, all credits goes to his midfielders (Modric, Kroos, Isco, Bale) and Zidane
Icardi will win world cup with Argentina, no doubt real will go for icardi next summer
What makes icardi or cr7 special even they played poor entire game but their focus still remain constant unlike messi, with a minute can make the difference. Messi contribute more unlike cr7 or icardi but if messi out of from team suffer if icardi or cr7 not in the game still make a difference in minute
Because they are not in playmaker role (lack of vision and passing skills), just wait for the perfect balls all day long.
He didn’t win anything yet indeed but he doesn’t have the players cr had in real madrid and he is only 25 years old.
It is mind boggling that some people tend to forget that he is the main reason that inter participates in the champions league as he scored 29 goals for them last season despite the fact that he spent quite a long time out due to injury. Yes, he is not an all around player but he is already one of the most prolific strikers in the world so we should give credit where is due instead of praising the overrated brazilians all the time!
My thoughts exactly!
We need a player like Icardi who can change the course of a match from nothing. Even if he comes in from Bench in the last 10 minutes. And we never tried Messi and Icardi long enough to give the combo a shot. Maybe 3 matches so far and not even full time.
I know icardi score sensational volly
My opinion he is not suitably for the national team… 84 minutes he didn’t do
Nothing… definitely we can’t play together
With dybala as both re lightweight
We need players who press and hard working… up front
icardi can made the difference in minute that’s the key, icardi has cr7 kind of mentality
Aguero and Icardi are best 9s by a mile. no one even comes close after them. Martinez next up, i dont see Simeone improving much.
valid point . Icardi – Dybala puts more pressure on midfield for extra pressing . that’s an area they need to start fixing. In modern football- unless ur name is MESSI , you have to press & defend also.
Bcs he is a diffrnt type of player like klose goal poacher u have to give him proper ball I bet he will.never miss
