Walter Kannemann out of Argentina team, tests positive for COVID-19


Argentina defender Walter Kannemann has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss next month’s World Cup qualifiers.

The Argentina and Gremio defender has tested positive with the Argentina Twitter account announcing it. No news on if Lionel Scaloni will add another defender from the Argentine league.


  1. Damn he should have been useful in La Paz against Bolivia, only 2 CBs who trade in South America are Quarta and Kanneman, At least they may have adapted better to the La Paz than the European Counterparts.

  2. Do hope that Scaloni will call Marcos Senesi for replacement; it will great to give a chance to young potential player to join N/T, agree that Pezella start as starting XI

      • Lisandro is anyday better than Senesi who is still raw. But i guess Scaloni is not comfortable playing Lisandro as a CB bcos of smaller stature as there is no other logic of ignoring him. Inspite of lower height for modern CBs, i see him as an aerially smart player. If he is paired with someone like Pezella i think we should be safe. But guess coach knows better than fans anyday. So maybe Senesi will get a chance in Scaloni’s system earlier to Lisandro.

  3. its now time to move on from pezella and otamendi…need to develop defenders like romero senesi for the worldcup and have a consistent back 4

    My pick would be RB montiel/saravia CB Romero/medina LCB senesi/N.perez LB taglifico/acuna

  4. 4-3-1-2
    ——Ocampos–Paredes–De Paul——

    Very strong in attack. I like Messi as 10 behind Lautaro and Dybala. A solid midfield capable of creating and driving the ball forward and wide. Ocampos and De Paul (LM/RM/Mezzala-role) are both workhorses and good defensively which makes up for having a less defensive but brilliant Regista in Paredes. Balance.

    Lo Celso can be swapped for either Ocampos or De Paul or even Dybala if you move Messi forward and Gio as 10.

    It would be an exciting team to watch!

    • Great news I’m not biggest fan of otamendi. But he deserves a lot better than the way pundits And media were undermine him so much.
      Tbh he is very good defender but at times he looks clown and bit rush.
