Sampaoli to meet Higuain

Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli has confirmed that he will meet Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, with the World Cup in view.

Higuain has been the biggest casualty of Sampaoli’s Argentina reign as the Coach has preferred Inter’s Mauro Icardi to lead the line, but he made it clear the 29-year-old was firmly in his thoughts for next summer’s showpiece.

“I’ll meet some players, including Icardi and Higuain,” he told Fox Sports Argentina.

“At the end of the trip, my squad won’t be decided because I’ll still have 45-60 players to go through.

“With these visits, we’ll watch them train and talk to their Coaches.”
