Mauro Icardi was rewarded after his good start at Inter with a called up by Argentinian NT coach Alejandro Sabella. In the recent weeks Prandelli opened to a call up for the Italian NT, considering Icardi has an Italian passport.
Icardi stated he was flattered by Prandelli’s words but that his main goal was to reach the Seleccion. Certainly, he didn’t expect to do that so soon: due to the injury of Lionel Messi, Sabella needed a striker and chose the Inter player, Gazzetta confirm.
Argentina are already qualified to the World Championship and Icardi will probably partner with Aguero, Palacio and Higuain, if the injury of the latter is not serious.
