Higuain out of Argentina squad again
Jorge Sampaoli once again left Gonzalo Higuain out of argentinian squad for the upcoming friendlies against Russia on 11 November and Nigeria 3 days later.
These matches will be the last (not yet other friendlies announced) before the World Cup 2018 in Russian and maybe the last conclusion about the team's tactic in the tournament.
Sampaoli makes clear now that he doesn't count the services of Higuain and prefers to use Mauro icardi as a striker after Segio Aguero.
Diego Maradona as he says tries to convince Sampaoli to bring back Gonzalo on the list for the World cup but still he can't change his mind.The other Argentinian Juventus player, Paolo Dybala was naturally called. AS Roma 's player Perotti makes his retuning to the national team after 6 years
Higuain has been left out again despite strong form at club level, scoring four goals in his last three matches for Juventus.
Here is the full players list.
