One of Lucas ALARIO or Marco RUBEN could be called as a replacement for Lucas PRATTO.
As we reported, Lucas PRATTO suffered a broken nose during Sao Paulo’s match against Palmeiras. It was reported that should he play, he would need a protective mask. However, per a report by TyC Sports, should PRATTO not be able to take part in Argentina’s upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches, it would be one of Lucas ALARIO or Marco RUBEN who would get called as a replacement.
No Mauro ICARDI
This happening after Argentina National Team coach Edgardo BAUZA stated a few times that if something were to happen to Gonzalo HIGUAIN or Lucas PRATTO, it would be Inter’s Mauro ICARDI who would get called to replace one of the players.
It now appears to not be the case. It would be either River Plate’s Lucas ALARIO or Rosario Central’s Marco RUBEN.
