FIFA World Cup 2018: no place for Dybala, Icardi in Argentina squad – Higuain


Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Jorge Sampaoli has shuffled his squad for the friendlies in preparation for the main event.

Gonzalo Higuain has been recalled to the squad that will face Italy and Spain this month. Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi will, however, miss out. Kun Aguero (Manchester City), who missed out on earlier selections, has now been included.

Who else is there?

Giovani Lo Celso has been retained in the midfield but there still is no place for his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Javier Pastore.

Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori, Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico and West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini are in the squad. Uncapped Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero, 36, has been called up alongside Sergio Romero and Nahuel Guzman.
