Lionel Scaloni had warned that there might be changes to make to his list. And for good reason, Nicolas Gonzalez (24) had to withdraw from the World Cup, victim of a muscle injury in training in recent hours.
To replace him, Argentina called Angel Correa (27). The Atlético de Madrid striker should join the Albiceleste very soon in order to be ready to enter the competition as soon as November 22 against Saudi Arabia.
