Banega: 'Icardi deserves Argentina'

Ever Banega believes his Inter teammate Mauro Icardi “deserves to play for Argentina” after the 2-1 win over Juventus.

Icardi was inspirational, scoring the equaliser and setting up the winner for Ivan Perisic.

“Obviously he deserves a call from the Seleccion, as he is scoring goals and I hope they do bring him in,” the midfielder told

“He just needs to relax and continue playing the way he is now. We must all continue like this and step up the intensity in every training session and every game.

“We’ll see where we are in five months. It was difficult against a side like Juve, but we gave our all and the key was not losing our heads the way we did in previous games. I have adapted well to Inter.”
