Argentina announce provisional 35-man World Cup squad
Argentina have announced their provisional 35-man squad for 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Argentina are drawn in Group D alongside Nigeria, Croatia and Iceland.
All the big names have been included on the long-list including Mauro Icardi, Ángel Di María, Gonzalo Higuain and Lionel Messi.
Sergio Agüero has all been named despite suffering from a knee injury in recent weeks.
Two men who perhaps will be disappointed are Paris Saint-Germain forward Javier Pastore and Tottenham’s Erik Lamela – especially after his hat-trick on the final day of the Premier League.
Javier Mascherano will also travel, despite leaving European football last summer for China.
Argentina, along with all the other nations playing this summer, have to name their final 23-man squads by June 4.
