Not saying that Icardi shouldn't go, but that he was vying for a position with Dybala, not Higuain.
It’s not just in the 2014 final, Higuain is a regular bottler for Argentina, did it in Copa America finals too. Bit of a difference between missing one penalty like Pearce did, and continually not turning up for 90 minutes like Higuain does. Really don’t get that Dybala point either, he’s an extremely different player to Icardi and Higuain, who are far more comparable. Although the former does have a bit more of a creative side and creates more chances for teammates than the latter.
