Mauro Icardi’s wife and agent Wanda Nara shared his disappointment about her husband was not included in the final Argentine national team squad for the upcoming World Cup in an interview with Perros de la Calle.
My peace of mind comes form the fact that Mauro is the future number nine of the national team and that he’s Sampaoli’s number nine. Maybe now isn’t the time, but he’s calmly waiting for his chance to play. These are things with no explanation, what’s happening to Mauro is an injustice – he deserves to be there. He has everything to be in the national team, in terms of age and performance. He met Sampaoli a couple of times and he told Mauro that it’d be hard to stay on the list and Mauro knew that too.”
Despite scoring 29 goals over the course of last season there was no room for Icardi in the final list that was published earlier this week. Juventus duo Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Barcelona’s multiple time world player of the year Lionel Messi all got the nod ahead of him.
