Yesterday, a three-hour meeting between the c.t. and the couple Juventus: Friday 11 will be in the list of 35, in June in that of the 23. From Sampaoli confirmation would arrive, now will meet Icardi. A real European tour, like a rock star, but to meet his, observe them, probably reassure them about next summer. Jorge Sampaoli has been in Europe for 15 days, next Friday he will return to Buenos Aires, he will speak with the federal president Tapia and then he will have to hand over the list of 35 summoned for the World Cup in Russia. Entered May 14, in fact, FIFA wants a first "wide" list, which will then be reduced to 23 on 4 June. And among the names present on the 14th, but also in June, there will be that of Gonzalo Higuain and, in all likelihood, Paulo Dybala.
Sampaoli met the two Juventus players in Turin yesterday: a long interview, which lasted almost three hours. And, according to the Argentine media, he would have confirmed to both the summons to Russia 2018. It was not obvious, because Higuain, who was also a pillar of his (short) management and Argentina in recent years had "hacked" the last two friendly, against Italy and Spain, reigniting the controversy. At home the Pipita has to deal with a large and fierce group of "protesters", who do not forgive the wrong goals in the finals lost (three, between World and 2 Copa America) in recent years. Gonzalo, however, remained on pole for the number nine shirt, and Sampaoli confirmed it, probably also appreciating the evolution of the player, who has become much more "maneuvering" in the Juventus experience.Take a look at free premium tennis predictions.
For Dybala the speech is even more complicated, because Paulo was not in the last lists of friendlies (thanks to the injury) and because it is considered difficult to coexist with Messi (for the same admission of Joya). The injury of Leo against Italy and Spain, however, probably convinced all of the need to bring a vice-Leo to Moscow. In addition, it remains to assess the condition of Aguero, which at 58 days from the beginning of the Russian tournament was operated on the knee (arthroscopy). The Argentinian press is sure that Paulo will be in Russia. And an indirect confirmation came from the federal president Tapia: "There will be some surprises, but the 23 more or less are those that the c.t. has met in these days".
The tour of Sampaoli will continue in Milan, where it will check the conditions of Biglia and talk with Icardi (who will be on the enlarged list of 35, but with few certainties on the 23) and then in Rome to meet Fazio and Perotti. Sampaoli has already been in Barcelona (Messi), Seville (Banega and Mercado), Liverpool (Funes Mori), Manchester (Romero, Rojo, Agüero and Otamendi), London (Lanzini, Willy Caballero, Lamela), Amsterdam (Tagliafico), Paris (Di Maria and Lo Celso) and Lisbon (Acuña, Salvio and Battaglia). In the list of 35 there will also be Lautaro Martinez, next Inter rider today, and Cristian Pavon (Boca). There will also be five goalkeepers, because Romero's injury calls into question.
