    Why wouldn’t they select player like Diego Perotti , he should be regular starter instead of di maria…also like always they have selected Icardi just for sake.. surely they will start with aguero or correa …

    Really sad and surprised to not see Nacho in there. Papu Gomez is also missing but these aren’t the last set of WCQ so there is plenty of time for players to show their worth.
    Overall list is still good so VAMOS boys.

    1. Gonzalo

      Instead we have 2 quite new Bustos and Benedetto.

  6. Gonzalo

    Nacho is very lank. Perhaps Sampaoli considered him as not right player for warrior game against Ururguay.

  7. Gonzalo

    I like Augusto a lot but still prefer Nacho over him. Although that is not the same position.

  8. Gonzalo

    Great to see Bustos and Benedetto, but where’s Nacho. I don’t see any reason to exclude him.

    Why is Nacho not there?

    1. miskan

      That curious me too

      1. Gonzalo

        Rather disappointed not to see Nacho or atleast Pablo Perez.

        1. Gonzalo

          Or one of Barboza, Pity Martinez (so good against Temperley), Tagliafico.

  12. petro

    Still i would have liked to see Diego Perotti in the squad

  13. EnganChe

    Great to see Bustos and especially Benedetto included. Deserved. This is what I think is going to happen:



    Bustos———-Biglia———–Paredes——-Di Maria

      Great lineup enganche. I would still prefer Augusto Fernandez ahead of biglia. Bustos would support messi better on the right side. My primary worry in attack is the tendency of messi and dybala to get into each other’s way. Hope sampaoli knows how to tactically discipline them not to do that. Vamos argentina
