After having made Brazil and Uruguay official as the two rivals that the National Team will face in the next FIFA date, Lionel Scaloni announced the players cited for those commitments, among which Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero stand out that they will return to the Albiceleste team. However, from the AFA they reported that the squad suffered two casualties due to individual injuries.
The DT of Argentina had included 26 names on their roster with the intention of settling their players ahead of next year when they will begin official competitions such as the South American Qualifiers and the Copa America 2020.
One of those who may not be this time is Roberto Pereyra, as the right hamstring was torn. The steering wheel had turned on the alarms in the medical team of the National Team last Friday, when he had to leave at 30 minutes of the first half of the game between Norwich and Watford by date 12 of the Premier League. This Sunday, with the injury confirmed, it was announced that the 28-year-old from Tucuman will not participate in the selected tour.
While the debut of the former River player with Albiceleste was in 2014, Pereyra failed to settle on the national team. But with Scaloni as DT, the Tucu had settled as a fixed within the coach's citations. In 2019, the former Juventus played five friendlies and was in the Copa America in Brazil, in which he added one more appearance.
Hours later, the National Team reported the second casualty on social networks. This is defender Marcos Rojo, who did not have a good performance on the last FIFA date against Germany, but Gringo had chosen to give him another chance. "Manchester United footballer Marcos Rojo will be down for the tour," the communication said.
Before these two casualties, it was decided to quote Alexis Mac Allister to cover the position of offensive midfielder. The Boca player had originally been called for the U23 National Team, which will play a home run in Mallorca in which he will face Chile and then clash with the winner or loser of Brazil-United States.
The National Team will concentrate on Mallorca, where it will train from Monday to Wednesday and on Thursday will travel to Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) to face the classic against Canarinha on Friday 15, from 14. Then, the squad will move to Tel Aviv on Sunday to close the year on Monday before Uruguay from 16.15.
