Argentina national team boss Lionel Scaloni has revealed that the squad could still change, depending on the players who are unavailable for the tournament.
Argentina play their opening World Cup game on Tuesday in a game against Saudi Arabia, but they recently played a pre-tournament friendly against UAE and picked up an impressive 5-0 win. While things seem rosy on the pitch, there may be absences for the national team.
After the game, Scaloni revealed that depending on the availability of players, the Argentina squad could change especially since Cristian Romero is still not fit and missed some of Tottenham Hotspur’s matches at the end of the first phase of the season.
Scaloni stated: “We have some little problems. But hey, we have time. Luckily, or bad luck, we have the possibility of changing the roster. There are players who took some risk and dosed the minutes. “
Apart from Romero, Paulo Dybala also played only a few minutes for Roma against Torino and he was not called up for the friendly against UAE. The game applies for Papu Gomez, who didn’t feature in the friendly.
