No Icardi in the Argentina squad

Probably one of if not the best Strikers in World football left out of the Argentina squad because Messi says so. The sooner they get rid of the poison dwarf maybe they can start developing a decent football TEAM again rather than being dictated to by one player, especially as the div only came out of international retirement because Ronaldo won the Euros so his legacy has reached the international stage.

Huge travesty though. Icardi is something else!

Their Defence and Goalkeeping options are pretty woeful though

Possibly the best set of strikers in the Tournament though

Does seem ridiculous to take Higuain instead, the man most responsible for losing them the 2014 final, who’s had nowhere near as good a season as Icardi. Player power is too much these days, if it’s true that Messi is responsible.

Icardi had an affair with Maxi Lopez wife and Messi is best mates with Maxi Lopez. So Argentina won't pick Icardi no matter how well he plays all the while Messi is still playing.

Sergio Romero is injured and out for the tournament so they now have three goalkeepers at a combined age of 99 with 8 caps between them in their 23 man squad.

Sigh, can this thread not become a boring Messi vs Ronaldo debate between two sides who’s minds will never be changed?

They're both as good as each other. If you pick one over the other, you're basically a nazi.

So poisoned dwarf or utter **** that clearly couldn't give a **** about his team mates......yeah, that'll definitely improve TEAM morale

If all the other players had a problem with Messi's opinion, they would all question it/drop out.....none have, suggests to me Icardi is the one they'd rather not have in their team.

If it was Ronaldo in Messi's position and another decent (are there any?) Portugese player would you have started the thread.....

Mate, I think Messi is leagues ahead of Ronaldo, and can’t wrap my head around the thought process of the latter being better. But Icardi is brilliant, and not making the the squad ahead of that bottler Higuain, who essentially lost them the 2014 final, and has scored half the Serie A goals Icardi has this season, is frankly ridiculous. Also, if it’s true that Messi has kept him out, it raises the question of excessive player power these days. Regardless of any of the op’s biases, it’s worthy of discussion.

I agree, but Latvian is a Real Madrid fan and dislikes Messi intently, hence the tongue in cheek comment

That being said, everyone thought John Terry was a **** and should have been stripped of the England captaincy/dumped from the England squad, so I can imagine that would irk the players somewhat as well.

If his inclusion negatively affects morale throughout the team less so than disagreeing with Messi, then the players would rise up and say something, the fact they haven't speaks volumes IMO.

Is it not more likely that it's to do with having a range of styles and options up front? They have gone with 4 forwards - Messi, Dybala, Aguero and Higuain.

Messi and Dybala can play on the flanks and cut inside in a 4-3-3 formation; di Maria could also fill one of these slots, although he's in the squad as midfielder.

Aguero and Higuain are both central strikers and one would play in the middle of that 4-3-3 with one as back up.

So, given that there are 3 options for the wide players in Messi, Dybala and di Maria in the squad, taking Icardi would have meant a 4th and a redundant back-up player.
