Argentina squad includes Serie A stars

The Argentina squad for upcoming friendlies against Venezuela and Morocco include Paulo Dybala, Giovanni Simeone, Lautaro Martinez and Rodrigo De Paul.

Coach Lionel Scaloni announced the list of players for the two matches, which will be at the end of this month.

There had been question marks around the presence of Mauro Icardi, seeing as he is officially out of the Inter squad due to a knee injury.

Maurito is not included, but his Inter teammate Lautaro Martinez is, along with Fiorentina forward Simeone and Juve’s Dybala.

VAR-temio Franchi fireworks

A hugely entertaining Fiorentina 3-3 Inter gave Giancarlo Rinaldi all the elements of a classic Serie A thriller: goals, controversy and chaos.

In Florence, as in the Marx Brothers’ A Night At The Opera, there was no sanity clause. A goal after 16 seconds lit the touchpaper on an evening of technological fireworks. There were so many reviews required that it felt like the final whistle might not sound until way after midnight. And, at the end of it all, who had any clue if the result was a fair one?

Pioli: 'Deserved Fiorentina victory'

Stefano Pioli felt Fiorentina “deserved the victory, even aside from the incidents” that saw SPAL penalised by VAR technology.

It was a strange 4-1 result at the Stadio Mazza, as SPAL had gone 2-1 up when VAR was used to identify a previous penalty foul on Federico Chiesa, so their goal was considered void and the Viola took the lead instead.

“It was an intense match,” confessed Pioli on DAZN.

Serie A pays Sala tributes

Serie A clubs and players have paid tribute to former Nantes and Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala, who was pronounced dead on Thursday.

Inter, Napoli, Lazio and Milan were among the clubs who tweeted messages of condolences, as well as Fiorentina, who tragically lost captain Davide Astori only last year.
