Mauro Icardi will have to watch the 2018 World Cup from the sidelines after being excluded from Argentina’s final 23-man Russia squad.


The Inter star scored for the Nerazzurri on Sunday as they completed a famous comeback to beat Lazio 3-2 and squeeze into the Champions League ahead of the Rome side.

Argentina’s World Cup squad:


Goalkeepers:Romero, Caballero, Armani.

Defenders:Mercado, Ansaldi, Otamendi, Fazio, Rojo, Tagliafico, Mascherano, Acuna, Salvio.

Midfielders: Biglia, Banega, Lo Celso, Lanzini, Di Maria, Meza.

Forwards: Messi, Dybala, Aguero, Higuain, Pavon.
