The reason, Icardi exactly sharp-sharp with Inter Milan. In 2017/18, Icardi managed to score 29 goals in 34 appearances in Serie A, which helped his team qualify for next season’s Champions League.
The fact that since the debut of the uniformed Argentina in 2013, Icardi just four times played. Under Sampaoli’s direction, the 25-year-old striker played in three 2018 World Cup qualifiers by scoring one goal against Venezuela.
Currently, Argentina threatened to be eliminated in the group phase after losing 0-3 from Krosia in the second game. After just collecting one point, Albiceleste must beat Nigeria in the last game while hoping Iceland does not beat Croatia.
“From the outside it is difficult to judge her elimination from the World Cup, I will need to be in the head of Sampaoli,” Veron told RMC Sport.
“I will have to be inside Sampaoli’s head, but I wonder why someone who has scored many goals for Inter, who is not the older generation, is not competing in the World Cup.”
“He has scored a lot of goals so it should be on the list, but only Sampaoli knows the reason,” said the former player who collected 73 caps with Argentina.
