Argentina national team legend Gabriel BATISTUTA spoke about the current crop of Argentine forwards.
In an interview with Sky Sport Italia, the second all time leading goal scorer of Argentina stated that he thinks Gonzalo HIGUAIN’s time is over and it’s now the turn of Inter man Mauro ICARDI. When asked about which striker he would select if it were his decision, here’s what he had to say with quotes courtesy of Sempre Inter.
“I struggle in choosing one. My favorite striker has always been Higuain but he has played in three World Cups for Argentina, he has had his chances. Now I think it is Icardi’s turn, he has a lot of room to improve.
“Icardi, Dybala and Simeone are all serious boys, they have a lot of will to improve and I think they are the future of the national team. Pipita has already given what he has to give.”
While he has yet to score his first goal for Argentina, Mauro ICARDI has been selected for the two friendly matches later this month against Mexico.
