Sampaoli: Why I didn’t pick Icardi…

Jorge Sampaoli has suggested that Inter striker Mauro Icardi was not compatible enough with Argentina’s World Cup squad.

Sampaoli overlooked Icardi for the Russian showpiece, despite the Inter captain ending the season as Serie A’s top goalscorer, and Sampaoli explained the 23 men he called up ‘identify with our style of play as closely as possible’.

“We came to this list after long and meticulous analysis,” said the CT.

OFFICIAL: No Icardi for Argentina

Mauro Icardi has been left out of Argentina’s squad for the World Cup, but Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain are in.

Icardi’s 29 goals for Inter this season were enough for him to be named Serie A’s Capocannoniere, but not to displace Higuain and Dybala in Argentina’s attack.

Interestingly, this is the first Albiceleste squad since 1994 that will go to a World Cup without a Nerazzurri player.

Burdisso set for retirement

Nicolas Andre Burdisso is expected to play his final game before retirement on Sunday, as the Torino defender takes on Genoa.

It’s a fitting fixture to bow out on, as the centre-back spent three years at Genoa and moved to Toro as a free agent last summer.

According to rumours, the 37-year-old is going to hang up his boots following this weekend’s match.

He spent most of his career in Italy, leaving Boca Juniors for Inter in 2004, then a spell at Roma from 2009 to January 2014.
