Exequiel PALACIOS of River Plate out of Argentina team with injury


Exequiel PALACIOS of River Plate has had to pull out of the Argentina team for this month’s matches.

One of the stand out players for Lionel SCALONI during last month’s friendly matches against Guatemala and Colombia, PALACIOS suffered a muscle tear and will be out of action for the next few weeks.


  1. a shame for this kid but he will have plenty more chances as he is a talent.

    lamela should be drafted in , yes they are not exactly the same position but lamela who was playing attacking cent mid vs barca and he looks fantastic their, he can also play out wide on both wings.

    lamela will also add some real “balls” to the team with never ending running and ferrous tackling and his never give up attitude.
    the n/t has been missing his type of player for a long time and we have to go back to the likes of sorin, ayala, solari, sim etc etc when we had these type of players in mass

  2. Since we lost palacios and pity Martinez
    I hope scolani call Velez boys
    Matias vargas and nicolas Dominguez
    Or lucas robertone to continue trying the youth for me that is what Arg needs to give the youngsters experience this is
    Right time to try it coz Arg got nothing to

    • Vargas will back to NT rather sooner than later. Nicolas Dominguez is box to box with all the abilities to be interesting options for NT. There’s only one problem now: we have abundance of good youngsters in central midfield.

  3. This lad is highly rated
    I’m unhappy not to see him
    to play for the NT next 2 matchs especially Brazil the boy is the box to box midfielder Arg has been crying for years.

    • They don’t play same position
      Arg have already some many
      Wide or attacking players.
      Arg need central midfielder
      To replace palacios but
      I think Roberto peryare can play
      There if Arg play three man in the

      • Lamela often drops back and he’s relentless when it comes to pressing and defending. Could definitely play alongside Battaglia/Ascacibar, Paredes, and Lo Celso in the midield. Pererya as well but I’d like to see lamela called up first.
