Argentina U20 team for FIFA 2023 U20 World Cup to be announced


Argentina U20 national team coach Javier Mascherano is today set to announce his team for the FIFA 2023 U20 World Cup.

Javier Mascherano will be able to count on Facundo Buonanotte of Brighton and all of the local league players for the tournament which begins in just under three weeks. Mascherano is expected to announce his list of players on Wednesday.

As we reported earlier, Alejandro Garnacho of Manchester United and Nico Paz of Real Madrid will not be released by their clubs for the U20 World Cup. It remains to be seen who else will not be released.

As hosts of the U20 World Cup, Argentina will play the opening match of the tournament and it will be against Uzbekistan on May 20. They will play their second match against Guatemala on May 23 and their final match on May 26 against New Zealand.

Mascherano announced his preliminary list of players for the World Cup a few weeks ago.

    • Yes, he’s injured again, he was subbed with some sort of discomfort at half-time in the last game and missed Villareal training prior to their derby vs Valencia. Proneness to injury is a curse for some of our talented players. That’s why he should stay away from a very physical league like EPL if even in Spain he struggles.

  1. Between Franco Carboni (if he is released) and Valentin Barco, who should start as a LB? Barco has had a good season so far for Boca.

    I’m curious to see Redondo combine with Buonanotte in midfield.

    • I can see Mascherano rotating a bit. I haven’t seen much of Carboni lately but Barco is in great form and I’m a believer of going with form. I would start Barco but no problem if Carboni starts too.

      Redondo is slowly flying under the radar. Kid is going to be a star like his dad.
