According to Diario Olé, Carlos Izquierdoz from Boca Juniors and Enzo Pérez from River Plate will both be part of the Olympics’ preliminary list of 50 players. It is worth mentioning that just 18 out of those 50 will make the final cut to Tokyo 2021. Of those 18 players finally selected, just three can be over the age of 23.
In addition to Enzo Pérez (35) and “Cali” Izquierdoz (32), Argentina’s U-23 coach Fernando Batista will also include seven more players over the age of 23 in the list of 50 players: Agustín Marchesín (33), Juan Musso (27), Jeremías Ledesma (28), Nacho Fernández (31), Ángel Correa (26), Sebastián Driussi (25), and Lucas Alario (28).
Although the preliminary list is not official yet, the Argentine Football Association would have already sent the list to the International Olympic Committee. The tournament will take place between July 23rd and August 8th.
June on wards looks like there are so many sporting events, The Copa America, Euro Cup, French Open Tennis, Olympics, Wimbledon… Cool. At least we get to relax from the stress caused by this pandemic.
Hope all this is rumors. To me the overage players should be between Icardi, Boye , Dybala ( if he is fine playing in Olympics ) Angileri , Nacho Fernandez .
In case trimming happens in main squad for Copa – some of them like Marchesin ( i prefer he being Olympics starter than being No 3 GK in Copa ) , Buendia/ A Correa ( one of them will be dropped in final list ) , Molina & Alvarez ( both not overage )
One GK, Mid and Striker could be included
