Argentina squad for friendlies vs Colombia & Guatemala- Argentine roster 2018- No Messi

By Soccer Blog | Aug 18, 2018

Here is the Argentina squad for their upcoming friendlies against Colombia and Guatemala. Interim coach Lionel Scaloni, who is charge after Jorge Sampaoli stepped down following their Round of 16 exit, has included many new faces. Lionel Messi is not there, after announcing earlier this month that he was taking an infinite break from national duty, and neither are the likes of Sergio Aguero, Angel di Maria, Nicolas Otamendi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Mauro Icardi, omitted by Sampaoli from the Argentina WC squad, finds a spot, and does Fiorentina’s Giovanni Simeone, the son of Atleti coach Diego.

    I’m very happy to see there Icardi,
    Martinez and Dybala but where is Luciano
    Vieto and Ricardo centorian then ?
    Both of they are magical striker and what
    About a manual Lanzini at midfield side ?
