Alejandro SABELLA confirmed the starting line-up for the match against Peru. He also spoke about the team, Mauro ICARDI and more. Here's what he said about MESSI and the injuries:
"We know that he's an irreplaceable player, but it's a team game and the team will give their best. We want to get the three points. In theory, we're missing 7 players and 4 of them have been starters throughout the World Cup Qualifiers."
"We qualified with two matches remaining, great effort put together by a great group. We started from the bottom with the frustration of not being able to win the Copa America despite not losing a game, we went out on penalties. We bounched back well, it's a team that has grown."
"I spoke to Mauro a while ago and I spoke to him before calling him up. It's possible that he plays. He's a different kind of player, that of the penalty area, he's young, he's 20 years old. He has that characteristic which we're missing, except for a little bit with HIGUAIN. He gives us alternatives."
Here is the confirmed line-up:
ROMERO; ZABALETA, GARAY, FERNANDEZ, ROJO; BANEGA, BIGLIA, DI MARIA; LAVEZZI, AGUERO and PALACIO.
