Edgardo BAUZA is expected to announce his list of players for Argentina’s October World Cup Qualifying matches on Friday.
BAUZA will announce his list on Friday and there’s some news about it. According to reports from Argentina, Mauro ICARDI will NOT be called-up this time around to the National Team. However, judging by BAUZA’s recent quotes from Thursday, both Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Sergio AGUERO could likely be back in the team.
Here’s what BAUZA had to say about the new list:
“I don’t think it’ll differ much from the last one because we had such little time working together and I want to take advantage and build on the work we’ve already done. Except for AGUERO and HIGUAIN, I will speak to them and after that make my decision.”
“AGUERO scored 3 goals (against Borussia Monchengladbach) but he had a knock on the knee. Hopefully it’s nothing. But before I can confirm anything, I want to talk with him. We’ll see who’s there and who isn’t.”
“We’re close to taking a decision about if he can be called-up or not, because we have to take into account that we don’t have the player with us. At the club, they see how he’s doing, if he’s doing well or not. Those decisions are different than ours. For that reason, I’m going to try and have as much information as possible.”
The report about Mauro ICARDI not being called-up is not set in stone as it’s just something floating in the media. As mentioned, the list will be out on Friday and we will have it here on Mundo Albiceleste!
