No Higuain in Napoli's Argentine XI

Napoli have left former striker Gonzalo Higuain out of their all-time greatest XI of Argentine players.

Higuain scored 91 goals in 146 appearances for Napoli between 2013 and 2016, even setting the Serie A record for most goals scored in a single season during the 2015-16 campaign with 36.

However, he left for Juventus in a then-Italian record €90m deal just months later, burning all his bridges with the club in the process.

To celebrate May Revolution Day in Argentina, the Partenopei put together a team of Argentine players who have represented them.

Conspicuous by his absence was the striker, with Roberto Sosa instead joining Ezequiel Lavezzi and Diego Maradona in attack.

Napoli’s Argentine XI: Mariano Andujar (2014-2016); Hugo Campagnaro (2009-2013), Federico Fernandez (2011-2014), Roberto Ayala (1995-1998), Mauricio Pineda (2000-2001), Daniel Bertoni (1984-1986), Jose Sosa (2010-2011), Jesus Datolo (2009-2011), Diego Maradona (1984-1991), Roberto Sosa (2004-2008), Ezequiel Lavezzi (2007-2012)
