Lisandro Martinez could start for Argentina in World Cup qualifiers


Lisandro Martinez could start for Argentina in their World Cup qualifier.

Martinez appears to be one of the favorites to start alongside Nicolas Otamendi for Argentina. With no Cristian Romero as he will remain with Tottenham Hotspur, Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni will have to select another defender.

Germán Pezzella of Real Betis is suspended. He received two yellow cards during the qualifiers and would not be available to play against Chile. Lucas Martínez Quarta is also just recovering from COVID as he has missed Fiorentina’s recent matches.

Argentina play Chile on Thursday, January 27 away with a second match against Colombia on February 1 at home.


  1. Armani is married and Scaloni too. Our coach has a beautiful family and 2 children.
    On the other side you are one idiot without a girlfriend because simply no girl can be with someone like you. so you try find from internet and in same time you spread your love towards the wifes of football players.
    you are pathetic and in same time you look more gay than Scaloni and Armani that you accuse.

  2. ROMANCE KING, personal interest? You really cannot live without making some kind of stupid innuendo. Everything is sexual for you, it’s either a wife of a player, not just Icardi, but others too or Scaloni’s “personal interest”. How deprived are you? Enough is enough. If you want to contribute to discussion, talk only about football.

  3. He deserves it. He has been outstanding for Ajax. A rock in their defence. Who would have believed he scored just as many league goals this season as Messi 😉

  4. Without Guido Rodriguez, the DM position is thin. Only Leandro Paredes and no back up. Lisandro Martinez can play DM but then he will likely start as DC.

    I read that they consider calling up Enzo Fernandez. I think it is a little too late calling up Europe based players as the match is just about 3 days from now.

    • Yeah unfortunately too late for a European based player to be called. Ascacibar would have been my choice, maybe Capaldo too. In the local league we have Enzo Fernandez, Almendra and Fausto Vera but I think because Enzo was called before he is a more likely possibility.
