The wait came to an end and coach Jorge Sampaoli made official at the AFA venue in Ezeiza the 23 summoned to represent the Argentine team in the 2018 World Cup of Russia . Of the preselection of 35 names given a week ago there were some players who got off the plane and attracted attention . In addition to, of course, other players who for the good present in their respective clubs were screaming for Mundial.From the goal began the news that until not confirmed by Sampaoli lacked official character. Nahuel Guzmán de los Tigres, started as the 1 of the national team but the tremendous present of Franco Armani under the three clubs of River Plate and the experience of Willy Caballero, of Chelsea, got off the plane to 'Patón'.
At the same time the defense had the famous player 23 who got through the window. Cristian Ansaldi, from Torino, came in because Gabriel Mercado is between cottons for a blow to the back and, mainly, it is a variant on both the left and right side.In the midfield, there were the most surprises based on polyfunctionality. Marcos Acuña, from Sporting Lisbon, besides moving around that area will be a card on the left side. While those who offer variants such as d oble five are Giovani Lo Celso, from Paris Saint Germain, and Maximiliano Meza, from Independiente. The Red man of Avellaneda can also play as an extreme and even creative. In addition Meza was in the defeat by a landslide against Spain, 6 to 1, and was the only high point that presented the Albiceleste.Get your free daily apuestas365 football tips.
It should be noted that as Lucas Biglia suffered from his back injury after a clash with his compatriot Alejandro "Papu" Gómez, from the technical staff of Jorge Sampaoli will see their evolution and until June 12 have time to see if they pick up the phone and they call the central midfielder Guido Pizarro, of Sevilla.Of course, surprises generate absences. Enzo Pérez, from River, and Ricardo Centurión, from Racing, will not be in Russia . The main reason is that the timing of both is not the best. Perez, who was a regular with the selected, reduced his level in River while Centurion after learning of his preselection with The Absolute had a last four loose matches.
Upstairs the issue was more than solved. With fixed names, such as Lionel Messi, Sergio Agüero, the chemistry of the group ended up opening the doors to Paulo Dybala and even to the 22-year-old young jewel of the Argentine bichampion Boca, the unbalancing Cristian Pavón. Together with Gonzalo Higuaín, of Juventus, the list was closed and in this way those who were in the way were Mauro Icardi , a benchmark and Inter goalscorer who will continue to watch the World Cup at a distance, and Lautaro Martinez , the last diamond that took Racing of Avellaneda but that also had a situation similar to that of the absent Centurion.
