Argentina preliminary team for Copa America announced, no Paulo Dybala


Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni has announced the preliminary team for the Copa America and there is no Paulo Dybala, Marcos Senesi or Walter Benitez.

Lionel Scaloni has picked 29 players for the preliminary team which will play against Honduras and Ecuador before the Copa America. Leonardo Balerdi, Lucas Martinez Quarta, Valentin Barco, Valentin Carboni and Angel Correa all return and remain with the team.

Here are the 29 players:

Franco Armani (River Plate)
Gerónimo Rulli (Ajax)
Emiliano Martínez (Aston Villa)

Gonzalo Montiel (Notting Forest)
Nahuel Molina (Atletico Madrid)
Leonardo Balerdi (Olympique Marseille)
Cristian Romero (Tottenham Hotspur)
Germán Pezzella (Real Betis)
Lucas Martínez Quarta (Fiorentina)
Nicolás Otamendi (Benfica)
Lisandro Martínez (Manchester United)
Marcos Acuña (Sevilla)
Nicolás Tagliafico (Lyon)
Valentín Barco (Brighton)

Guido Rodríguez (Real Betis)
Leandro Paredes (AS Roma)
Alexis Mac Allister (Liverpool)
Rodrigo De Paul (Atletico Madrid)
Exequiel Palacios (Bayer Leverkusen)
Enzo Fernández (Chelsea)
Giovani Lo Celso (Tottenham Hotspur)

Ángel Di María (Benfica)
Valentín Carboni (AC Monza)
Lionel Messi (Inter Miami)
Ángel Correa (Atletico Madrid)
Alejandro Garnacho (Manchester United)
Nicolás González (Fiorentina)
Lautaro Martínez (Inter)
Julián Álvarez (Manchester City)

Of these 29 players, three would be cut to make the final list of 26 players for the Copa America in the United States.


  1. Dybala is a player I like a lot whom I would’ve loved to sew on the list bit I always had a feeling he would not be included this time even though, it is less of a risk including him now considering we already win the previous Copa and even when he gets picked he barely plays.

  2. So, the list is 29 players. Which three players do you think will be dropped from the list?
    I think Barco, Carboni, and Guido won’t make it to the final list.

  3. It ridiculous to have pezella instead of marcos senesi who is in great form in the current season.. and rulli instead of walter benitez makes no sense..
