Fast Or Slow, Icardi Will Become Main Striker Argentina
Inter Milan legend, Javier Zanetti, admitted never doubt the quality of Mauro Icardi. He believes, sooner or later 24-year player will be a mainstay of Argentina’s National Team.
Argentina play 0-0 against Peru in a match following the 2018 World Cup qualifying match South America zone, at Alberto Jose Armando Stadium, Buenos Aires, Friday (6/10/2017). In the game, Icardi just sitting sweet on the bench.
Zanetti also gave support to Icardi. He believes the player will get a chance to play for his country.
“Icardi will have all the time to be number 9 in Argentina.If you analyze the game against Venezuela, when Argentina has a chance, it’s always him and he provoked the opponent’s goal,” Zanetti told Sky.
In addition to Icardi, Zanetti also discussed competition on the front lines of Argentina. “Gonzalo Higuain? In my opinion, in the end, he will go to the World Cup, he just has an unlikely moment.”
“Can Lionel Messi play with Paulo Dybala? Jorge Sampaoli is just starting out as a coach, and he will have time to find a solution, hopefully he can do it by bringing Argentina to the World Cup,” Zanetti added.
Argentina itself is now ranked sixth with 25 points in the standings. They are adrift on goal difference from Peru who ranked fifth, or the play-off zone boundary. With one matchday left, the Tango team is in danger of failing to swing into the 2018 World Cup.
