Argentina have far more pressing issues than Mauro Icardi’s place in the squad


Argentina boss, Jorge Sampaoli, has been touring Europe trying to find solutions to problems all over the pitch, starting with what to do with Mauro Icardi

Jorge Sampaoli has been doing his rounds once more in Europe, finalising plans and catching up with players expected to be in his World Cup squad but as ever there was one meeting that made the headlines above all others.
