Sampaoli: Argentina Need Icardi

Argentina’s national team coach Jorge Sampaoli explains why he has preferred Inter’s striker Mauro Icardi instead of Gonzalo Higuain.

Fans in South America have often requested that Icardi get a call from the national team, but not calling Pipita is also something very surprising.

“Icardi is the figure we need right now,” Sampaoli said.

“We need a striker who attacks empty space and not just a scorers. We are looking for alternatives and that’s why I brought Icardi. ”

Keep in mind that the 24-year player was only one time to play for Argentina and it was in the year 2013 ago.

Icardi has consistently been one of the most prolific players in Italy, scoring 85 goals in 158 Serie A games, plus 25 bait.
