Interim Argentina Coach Lionel Scaloni told Mauro Icardi, Lautaro Martinez and Giovanni Simeone to “make the most of their opportunities.”
Nerazzurri pair Icardi and Martinez were snubbed for the 2018 World Cup squad, while Simeone is a new addition after his impressive form for Fiorentina.
“We have Mauro, Lautaro and Giovanni in the list, three players of a high level,” said Scaloni in a Press conference ahead of friendlies against Guatemala and Colombia.
Lionel Messi was not included in the squad and it remains to be seen if the Barcelona hero will ever play for his country again.
“Mauro has been playing at the top for the most years. It’s time now for these players to make the most of the opportunities they have.
“These three are here now, so if they do well, why can’t they continue?”
