Sampaoli names Argentina's pre-World Cup list

Argentina have announced their 35-man preliminary squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Icardi, 25, has been largely overlooked for the Albiceleste despite consistently impressing for his club.

All five of them were called up by to Sampaoli's preliminary squad, and the coach has until 4 June to announce his final 23-man squad for the tournament in Russian Federation.

The 30-year-old will unquestionably be the fulcrum of Argentina's side in Russian Federation 2018, but he will need assistance from the rest of the squad if they are to win their third World Cup. Biglia broke two vertebrae in April, missed three AC Milan games, and was injured again on Sunday after an Atalanta player hit him in the operated area.

I wasn't really insane about the first half of the season but the second half has been decent. The show is the only Marvel property to survive more than two seasons on basic cable.

Argentina start their 2018 World Cup campaign on 16 June against Iceland.

Lionel Messi, the captain, was confirmed to play his fourth World Cup.

Rodrigo Battaglia of Sporting Lisbon, yet to be capped, and Guido Pizarro of Sevilla were possible substitutes in case Biglia does not fly to Russian Federation. Mercado will be evaluated by Argentina doctors.

Argentina are in Group B, which includes Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia.
