Mauro Icardi is out of Copa America. Argentina coach Scaloni: "The best players are called up"
“It is an important moment for the Argentinian national team. I believe that the best players at this moment are called up. Some are left out due to injury but will always be taken into consideration (for the future).”
Lionel Scaloni, coach of Argentina, talks about the 23-player list for Copa America that takes place this summer in Brazil, one that will not have Inter striker Mauro Icardi.
“You always have doubts when you have so many good players to choose from. It is hard to please everyone but the final decision is always to think of the best for the team. Our idea is that any player can be invited to play for the national team, there is no prohibition for anyone. Leaving players out is the hardest part for a coach to make but we have no doubts about our choices.”
