Following Italy national football team manager Cesare Prandelli's interest in Icardi's performances, in February 2013, Icardi stated his wish to play for the Argentina senior team, despite also being eligible to play for Italy, saying: "I'm very grateful to Italian football for the opportunity it has given me, I'd also like to thank Prandelli for the nice words he expressed about me. But I have to be honest and sincere – I'm Argentine, I feel Argentine, and I've always dreamed of wearing the shirt of my nation. To actually do that would be the maximum for me."

that team looks very wash

GK - 2 bench riders & a dust league keepr

DF - no out and out RB and a LW as a defender...dustman fazio and benchman rojo

MF - other than Lo Celso, Lanzini & Di Maria...both DMs are over 30..dont know about the argentina lleague players..Banega is trash now..salvio is ok

FW - Only gd thing about the team. 

 

LOL @ Dropping Icardi & Perotti in favour of some of them other players. 

 

Higuain -  Serie A 17/18 - 16 goals, 7 assists

Icardi - Serie A 17/18 -  29 goals, 1 assist

Cant have Icardi outscoring Messi in the world cup
