Argentina keep out Icardi

Argentina have again left out Mauro Icardi as Ever Banega, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala are called up for next week’s games against Peru and Paraguay.

Edgardo Bauza was forced to deny last week that Icardi’s absence from the Argentina set-up was not due to player mutiny, stemming from his personal life, but despite his six goals, the striker continues to be overlooked, with Genoa old boy Lucas Pratto included.

Argentina travel to Peru in 2018 World Cup qualifying next Friday, before welcoming Paraguay to Mendoza five days later.
