Argentina call up Icardi & Papu

Inter striker Mauro Icardi and Atalanta forward Alejandro Gomez have been called up by Argentina for games against Brazil and Singapore.

Icardi has only one cap for Argentina, despite his sustained prolific form for Inter, reportedly due to his love triangle with Maxi Lopez, a close friend of Albiceleste talisman Lionel Messi.

However, with Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli set to take charge of the South Americans, the 24-year-old has seemingly been given another chance on the international stage.

“After qualifying for the Europa League, we went to celebrate,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
