Mauro Icardi out for 20 days, would miss Argentina’s World Cup qualifying matches


Mauro Icardi is reportedly out for 20 days and will miss Argentina’s World Cup qualifying matches.

Icardi scored two goals in his first three games of the season for PSG and was set to be included in the Argentina squad for September’s matches. With injuries to Lautaro Martinez, Lucas Alario and Sergio Aguero, Icardi was next in line.

However, as we reported on Friday, Icardi was substituted off for PSG in their 4-2 win vs. Brest with a shoulder injury. According to L’ÉQUIPE, tests have shown that he has an AC sprain in his right shoulder which would keep him out for 20 days.

Argentina play Venezuela, Brazil and Bolivia in World Cup qualifying matches in September.


  1. Talk about karma… Icardi is “reaping what he sowed”
    Fuck him, he shouldn’t play for us anyways.
    It’s about time we tried a dybala Messi combo with a heavy midfield line.

  2. Without our top 4 strikers out, Scaloni could opt for a false 9 strategy with Messi upfront (although he is not fit yet) and Dybala in Messi’s normal spot.

  3. Missed the chance again, wish Icardi a speedy recovery and get better.
    Anyhow, he still have plenty time, buid a chemistry with Messi @ PSG and the N/T door will be open wider
