Alexis Mac Allister set to start for Argentina in World Cup qualifier


Alexis Mac Allister is set to start for Argentina in the World Cup qualifier.

Mac Allister will get his first start for the Argentina national team on Friday at La Bombonera. Per Gastón Edul, Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni has selected Mac Allister over Exequiel Palacios in midfield to play alongside Rodrigo De Paul and Leandro Paredes.

As we reported earlier, Lionel Scaloni has already stated that in the absence of Emiliano Martinez against Venezuela, it will be Franco Armani as the goalkeeper. Here is the rumored eleven:

Armani; Molina, Pezzella, Otamendi, Tagliafico; De Paul, Paredes, Alexis Mac Allister; Messi, Joaquín Correa and Nico González


  1. I don’t like that lineup….. This is weak Argentina side, like someone mentioned why not Angel Correa and Julian Alvarez….

  2. I insist Julian Alvarez/ angel correa should start ahead of juaquin correa. Otherwise should scaloni drop Dybala from 26man list for Qatar coz of Juaquin/Ocampos, it will be a silly decision.

  3. No Italia in WC for the second straight time! Penaldina and Portugal have a very good chance of making it… North Macedonia is the new Iceland..

  4. Julian Alvarez should be given a chance. Scaloni missed Di Maria and Gio Lo Celso so he bring on Mac Allister operating from the winger and a good crossing to the striker. Still, Palacios should be used as a subs as he is good in controlling the mid field and support the up front.
